I'm having the most amazing birthday today. Overwhelmed by all the good wishes and love. Thanks, everybody. So far, I've received two gifts that have really moved me.
My brother designed a custom pair of Converse sneakers for me: The Oceanna.
I was nervous before I saw them because Chris said, "Think: whimsy," and I did. Very, very nervous. But they are FANTASTIC. Now I will never be laughed out of a Kpop concert. Not that I was worried about that happening before…much. Not only are they cute and pop-py, but he got a little sassy with the heel tag. I can't wait until they arrive.
My other touching gift comes from a GW2 fan and friend, Kent Benson. I had a crappy day a while back, where it only rained when I was trying to get home from work. Otherwise, the skies were clear. I was so pissed that I tweeted about it, and Kent offered to make a strip once classes were over. Then this morning, he posted this gorgeous thing on my FB page:
He got all the details right, from the Airtight Games logo on my workplace door to the tiny smile on Miss Nixy's face. I especially adore how it looks like I'm going to kick the weather's butt in panel 3. Such a lovely gift.
Yep, this birthday is shaping up to be a memorable one.
