Birthday Festivities

It's only halfway through, but I have had such an awesome birthday already! I got up around 10am. The start of it wasn't promising because I actually worked a little bit this morning (very minimal, though). I thought that I would treat myself to a facial, but it was soon lunchtime and, seeing as how I thought I was being fed the cold shoulder by Mr. Nonny Nu, I took off to have a celebratory lunch and catch 1408 by myrabbitself.

To be completely honest, I really enjoy eating alone. Well, actually, I really enjoy eating, whether it be with someone or by myself. Mr. Nonny Nu is a real steak and potatoes guy, and I'm a real octopus and lemongrass gal. So, as may be expected, eating is an issue between us. He tries to be pliable, but sometimes I just have to go off by myself and really chow down on some grubs, er, grub. I love to read, so I bring along a novel and just have some quiet and quality time alone.

Anywho, I spent the first hour at the DMV renewing my tags. Then, I went to a Thai restaurant (my favorite food is Thai food, btw) for my second birthday meal (last night's dinner was the first one, but I'll spare you the details). I forgot my camera, so I can't provide actual pictures, but I'll illustrate with the help of the Internet. I ordered:

1) Tom Yum Goong, a spicy sour lemongrass soup with shrimp;
2) Tod Mun, fried fishcakes werved with a sweet and sour cucumber and red onion dipping sauce (they're like Thai chicken McNuggets);
3) Drunk Noodles with chicken, savory rice flour noodles stir-fried with tomatoes, basil, chili, and chicken;
4) Pad Thai noodles with shrimp, thin rice noodles;
5) Red Curry Beef with rice; and
6) Thai Iced Tea.

It will come as no surprise to you all that the waitress asked me if I wanted any of this stuff to go. I told her no, and that I'm just having a celebratory birthday lunch. She looked at me with a huge grin that said, "I can't believe what a freak you are!" So, when the food started arriving, I got to work. When you put it all together, it does seem a bit much, doesn't it? ------------------->

Yes, I did notice that the other waitress and the waiter kept walking by to see how I was doing and all of them had that grin on their faces. I finished the soup, but I was only able to finish half of everything else, so I took that to go. When I asked for the check, something totally cool happened--they brought over a fried banana and ice cream dessert and sang "Happy Birthday" to me!! They were so nice!!! I so regained my faith in humanity!!! Then, right before I left, they gave me this. I felt so loved.

Well, anywhoo, I said thank you and goodbye, and I went to the theatre for my opening day viewing of 1408. Lo and behold, as I was waiting in line for tickets, I get a text message from Mr. Nonny Nu: Bring me food. Subsequently, me. So, I got Mr. Nonny Nu some lunch and brought it home. But, look at what was sitting on the coffee table! And, look where it's from! When I opened the gift, there were the party favors. But, this is what I got--a Clarisonic face brush! It's like one of the sonic toothbrushes, but for faces!! The system comprises a brush with sensitive brush head installed, a normal brush head, recharger, and daily cleanser. It's charging up right now for my bath tonight! Thank you so much, Mr. Nonny Nu!

And, also special thanks to Man from U.N.C.L.E. for tips on how to kiss ass and the wonderful poem!!

To ogunsgirl: I hope you like chocolate--HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

P.S. Don't know if you are interested but, in my bathroom, I have my baby picture with my mom and my dad's in the top portrait: click here.

P.P.S. Skitty came by to say happy birthday.

Well, I am impressed with your lunch order.

Just be glad the waiter didn't ask "if you were eating for 2!"

(I've found that telling the server you have a tape worm wipes the smile right of their faces.)

I wonder what the brush will do to your furry little bunny face, Nonny Nu.

Well, a lot of the little carrot bits are gone now...

Rodrigo wants you to buy some personalized t-shirts, Nonny Nu. How about you pass them out to all your bloggers? Then we can be a unified group as we will all don them while composing our posts on TWoNN. It would be a Google style perk for your faithful TWoNN participants. On the other hand, we may then start expecting free boxed lunches or carry outs from the featured restaurant of your executive hour lunches.

Happy belated birthday sweetheart!!!! The food looks crazy good. Did you end up seeing 1408? I saw it this weekend, and I think I still have a lot of unanswered questions. The end needs some clearing up. What was your interpretation??

Oh, and the Sephora brush is unreal. You will love it, if you haven't tried it already!

Man from U.N.C.L.E. said...

Hey Sweetsie, You'd wear a TwoNN t-Shirt emblazoned with a picture of Nonny Nu wouldn't you?

Nonny Nu said...

Great minds think alike, Man! (<---HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAA!!!) I was thinking about getting TWoNN t-shirts for everyone, too. I might get them from Rodrigo. No promises, and t-shirts /=> ANY OTHER PERKS.

Absolutely! We should put something in Cafe Press. We could have TWoNN t-shirts, sweats, thongs, etc. :)

Is that a bunny in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
