eat more cake.

"i finally remembered!" a bag of goodies, in a colorful gift bag that reads "EAT MORE CAKE!", appears in front of me.

i had already forgotten my birthday was last weekend. not for any reason really - probably because so many other things have gone through my head that the thought of last weekend has already been pushed out. i think the only thing better than presents on your birthday, is presents when it's not your birthday.

today my gift was from my coworker tracy. i don't know if i had talked about how much i love kitchen gadgets, or if tracy just knows me that well, but she got me some adorable ones! now my pirate dish scrubber has a lady friend! i will add this to my other awesome kitchen gadgets, including the frying pans with cats on them my sister gave me.

sometimes unexpected gifts are the best. you know the ones - from people who are not obligated to buy you a present*. they're not doing it because they have to, but because they want to. so thanks tracy, for making my day (and my kitchen!) a little brighter.

*disclaimer to my family: no, i don't think you buy me gifts because you are obligated. i know you buy me gifts because i am super awesome and your life would be meaningless without me!
