Party like it's 1899.....


Happy Birthday to me.



Yeah. Yesterday was my B-day. I am pushing 50 ya'll.



I was not in the greatest mood but I suppose it really had nothing to do with being "nearly 50"




I'm always kind of bummed for a few weeks after everyone goes home anddd I'm (once again) trying to quit smoking. I don't even want to talk about it this time. I'm not going to count the days or keep track of that crap, none of the usual . This time do it or don't do it. just STFU about it.



(That's all I have to say about that) :)



My friend Floozie2 and a couple of our nice neighbor ladies took me out to lunch .We went for delicious Mexican food. (well as delicious as it can be ,in Arkansas)


Later on I had the urge for birthday cake. Actually ,not so much cake,just the yummy bakery butter cream frosting.I bought myself that tiny cake for one .



I was dissapointed to discover that the damn thing had whip cream frosting.


Note to self: always bring freakin' eyeglasses to grocery store, you blind old bat.


****************************************************

When I go back to England I plan to be better prepared this time.Better prepared to defend myself from the bone chilling cold,that is.



I've been searching for a less bank robber-y looking "bank robber mask" . I was surprised at the balaclavas I found on the internets.







The Beardo.


This is wild, but probably not quite my style .














The gallows mask.


The rope around her neck does make me think "she looks like she's about to be hanged."


















This looks like a very big "maybe" for me. It looks comfortable and not itchy. I wonder if I could find it in a different color.














This is the only other "maybe" ,not in this pattern of course. I'm not too crazy about all the strings either.


Anyone know a knitter out there who could knit up some cute "bank robber" masks?








Well it's shopping day here in depressed old lady land. I'm outa heah' .


Have a great day Peeps!

Happy Belated Birthday! Sorry your little cake didn't work out. I, too, love that butter cream frosting, and when better than your birthday to indulge that guilty pleasure? Maybe you should just buy a can of it as a belated gift to yourself.

Hope you have a lovely year.

ges, happy birfday. reminder: you are one of those peeps who gets bummed on their bday -- regardless. not sure why. it just happens. you shoulda had another happy hour/photo party. that was fun for you.

anyhow-- yeh those baklava things? check the fishing/hunting/sporting goods sections. you won't find find beauty or style- you may find a good price-- specially this time of year. maybe you could find a white or light colored one and 'liquid embroider' it?? they are WARM. of course we have them.. mine is black -- for fishin in the cold. i even have one with a hard face /wind shield -- sooo sexay !!do you have a bass pro- or cabellas? maybe in little rock? sheck it out. get creative - save some monays.

love meh
