Me pink

Quiet Storm rocks!

I'm writing this from Quiet Storm Coffee. Earlier today, I told the woman behind the counter that it was my birthday. Well, because it was my birthday, the women here gave me a piece of vegan orange cake for free (VERY yummy!), lit three little tea light candles around it, told me I got not one, not three, but thirty-three wishes, and then had the two cheerleader-esque girls sing/stomp happy birthday to me ... way cool! They absolutely made my night.

Now there's a band playing ... kind of reminds me of the instrumental opening parts of recent Cure songs ... really loud, but with crumpled up napkins in my ears, I'm enjoying it.

Come on down - the water's fine!
