What I did on my birthday

My sister Twoofadozen sent a birthday gift in the mail - "The Action Heroine's Handbook". It arrived yesterday, wrapped in a pretty brown ribbon.  I could think of only one thing to do with that ribbon:

Doesn't he look thrilled?  I was giggling like a fool all night while he tried to take it off.  Yes, I've turned into THAT girl - the one who dresses up her kitties and talks about them constantly.  Hee hee.

I've been desperately trying to solve a 4x4x4 Rubik's Cube.  Last night I finally turned to the internet for a solution.  Unfortunately, I got a little too forceful while attempting said solution, thus rendering the endeavor moot.  Oops.

The cube further disintegrated and is now occupying a Ziploc bag.  That blue piece in front is going to need a super glue intervention before I can reassemble this beast.  Oh well, at least when I put it back together I will finally have it "solved".  Cross that off my list of things to do now that I'm 32!

This didn't happen yesterday, but I'm also excited about a book from Fiveofadozen that arrived on Monday.  It's called "The Heritage Universe" and I think it's actually 3 books in one hardcover collection (yea!  I love hardcover books!).  I'm planning to start reading it this weekend.  All together this was a much better birthday than last year's - and I still have 2 more presents in the mail!  Hooray!

I've always wanted to see the inner workings of a rubiks cube. :)

The 4x4x4 cube doesn't look the same as a 3x3x3 cube on the inside. It's also more fragile and harder to reassemble. This is the excuse I will cling to when I finally give up and buy a new one ;)
