I'm going to put aside my usual snark and sarcasm for a moment to sincerely thank all of you for your cards, gifts, e-mails, e-cards, and LJ posts. I'm overwhelmed with your kind words and generosity. A few of you even made me weepy. The fact that so many of you thought of me, it means more to me than I can adequatley put into words.
Now, on to the regularly scheduled sarcasm....
Last night, after seeing it recommended on several LJ's, I downloaded the web browser, Firefox. May I say Woo and Hoo! I love, love, love the tab feature. Why didn't anyone think of this before? It's such a convenient way to read one page while others load in the background.
And while I fretted I was going to have to track down and save all my favorite web sites again, I discovered (quickly, thankfully) that Firefox transfered all that info from IE for me! Also, I swear, even with my old dial-up, pages load considerably faster and my screen freezes up far less.
Today, I had a fun if unspectacular birthday. A friend and I went to see The Return of the King again. I have to admit, I enjoyed it more on second viewing. I certainly hope the Academy recognizes the film as Best Picture next weekend.
Following the film, we went out for a late lunch. Mine was good, my friend was not so fortunate. For your future reference, Chili's Chicken Crispers...not so crisp.
Returned home to find several messages on my answering machine. I dutifully returned all the calls (my mother taking up the most time of course ;). Do to scheduling conflicts, another friend will be treating me to a belated celebration next weekend. Yet another friend, TC, insisted on dropping off my gift tonight. She showed up with a rather large hat box (she noticed I had several) full of goodies. I was shocked to find Season 3 of Angel included. I tried telling her she spent far too much on little old me. To which she replied that I'm the reason she can face coming into work every day. OK, getting weepy again....
I recommend you all check out The SpoilerSlayer and read some recent comments made by supposed 'Spike Hater' David Fury. There are no spoilers for upcoming episodes, but he does make some comments regarding 'Destiny'. Looks like we have Joss to blame for a certain scene. ;)
So, Spike is "morally superior" to Angel? And their's is the love story of the season? Oh, you slashers must be loving this. :p
OK, this will probably bite me in the ass, but a message for our spammer Kyle. Posting your progaganda on LJers who have already made up their minds not to see the The Passion ain't gonna change it. As for myself, I do plan on seeing the film. Not that your spam had anything to do with my decision. I'm just one of those wacky people that like to make up their own mind as to what they choose to see or not see. Oh, and I shall be commenting on my LJ on what I see...friends locked.
One final note....Johnny Depp just won the SAG award! I'm thrilled for him but this really screws up my Academy Awards contest ballot. :(
