Happy Birthdays to Me

I've been a little stressed over my job situation recently, so Sylvia has decided to ease my pain by giving my birthday a temporal extension. Starting at the beginning of February, she started giving me a gift a day, each designed to appeal to one or more of my interests, obsessions, or weaknesses. Here's the lowdown thus far:

Day 1: A LAVA LAMP! I've always wanted one of these, and it's in Kryptonite green. Most excellent.

Day 2: A bag of peanut M&Ms. Yummy!

Day 3: SILLY PUTTY! I love Silly Putty, and I haven't had any in years. This batch is metallic gold.

Day 4: The latest issue of Laptop magazine. Hmm, there's some cool stuff in here - an interesting read.

Day 5: A package of Reese's Swoops. They're tasty little chocolate thingys.

Day 6: A new memo pad! Fantastic - I needed one of these.

Day 7: A can of mixed nuts. Delicious and nutritious.

Boy, I'd better figure out something good for Valentine's Day...suggestions gratefully accepted.

So Earl,

How did Valentine's Day go?

She seemed happy with the cookies, the floral arrangement, the card, and dinner at the Sawmill. :-)
