I think we're finally at the end of the birthday run, in so far as it ever actually ends. Beck and Ramona, in a frenzy of Industrial-Strength Nesting, have me fretting about Christmas already, but I'll get over it.
When I am finally elected Ruler of the Universe, the first thing I'm going to do is pass a law that abolishes obligatory gift-giving. We will only give presents when we feel like it, and it won't have to be for any reason at all. Nay, it must be for NO reason at all.
Vote 1. Shula. Ruler of the Universe.
Anyway, getting back to the subject: this scarf, if you'll permit my immodesty, really is rather beautiful. Recycled 1930s feedsack and linen, matching as though they weren't manufactured seventy years apart. Feels beautiful, looks elegant. For Gillian, whom I know well enough to let her choose the fabrics herself, because she's fussy like that, but really so that I can watch and reluctantly admire the way she hones in, like a long-range exocet missile, on the most cherished items in my stash.
Because that's what friends are for, right?
