Bday shenanigans!  
Thank you for the birthday wishes! (and happy birthday to centerspire today, if she's around! )

It wasn't the... um, best of birthdays, it turns out. There was a school picnic on that day and something I ate must have disagreed with me terribly either there or earlier, because I had to go home and just feel icky for awhile. So birthday dinner has been postponed. :(

But I did receive an awesome present from mrLiz and the kidlet:

It's about a foot tall, and it plays the most adorable tinkly, music box version of Bach's Toccata and Fugue. :)

We saw it at the Disney store on our vacation and since I'm a Maleficient fan, MrLiz knew I'd love it. :) especially the Dragon part. Maleficient the Dragon is pretty much my most favorite part of any Disney movie ever and is the reason I usually claim Sleeping Beauty as my favorite Disney movie, even if it's probably not true overall.

And in the "Present to myself" department - I saw it was about to be sold out so I broke down and ordered the Hot Toys Loki. I already have the Black Widow on order (as part of a X-mas present "swap" with hubby, who wanted the Catwoman), so now all three will be able to make out stand next to each other and be awesome. (as if D will ever take the Catwoman out of the box.ha!)

y'know, it must be weird to have toys made of you that look so much like you. When the likenesses were terrible it was probably easier to shrug off, but now, some of these are so SPOT ON it must be a little odd. Seriously, that Black Widow looks like they miniaturized ScarJo through some kind of magic. D thought it was a placeholder photo still at first, not the prototype.

Belatedly, happy birthday!

It sucks that you felt bad and had to postpone your dinner plans, but hopefully you're feeling better by now. And your Maleficent snowglobe is great!

Oh man. I want the Hot Toys Black Widow so badly but am having a hard time justifying the expense to myself even if I do the payment plan. :-/ Sadly, I do not have a spouse to bargain with for it.

And belated happy birthday. Sorry to hear about the food poisoning. :-/

Problems Michael Trucco doesn't have for 400, Mr. Trebek.

Happy belated birthday! I admit, your snowglobe scares me a little.
