8:08 a.m. Friday, July 27, 2007
Arlington, MA

Awake in my bed. Phone on the night stand starts to buzz. Sleepily reach over to check the number. Don’t recognize it. Debate on whether to answer. What the hey…

Me: Hello?
Deep Male Voice: Mary Webster.
Me: Yes?
DMV: Happy Birthday.
Me: Thank you!
[10 seconds of silence.]
Um, who is this please?
DMV: This is Spencer N. [a guy in my ward I hardly know, but think the world of.]
Me: BWAHAHHAHAHAHA! Spencer! What’s up, man? [sits up in bed.]
DMV: I think you should know. You’re going to be inundated with calls today.
Me: Oh, I am?
DMV: Yes. Just thought you should know. Have a happy birthday.
Me: It already is! Thanks, Spencer!

So apparently, my dear gal Peg sent something out to the entire world telling them to call, text, or email me on my birthday. It was ridiculous and wonderful how much my phone went off on Friday.

Here’s me post:

Interstate 95 somewhere between Lexington and Brookline, MA

Read 7 texts and listened to 3 voice mails. I lost track by late afternoon. Called Peg. Headed to Atrium Mall for a little retail celebrating.

Atrium Mall, Brookline, MA

Found nothing I was crazy about, but did stop in to get my face dolled up at the MAC store. I wear so little makeup, when she was finished I barely recognized myself. I looked like a clown hooker. The sales women looked at me like I was the Electric Light Parade: "You are goooorrrgeeeeous! Oh my gosh, you look ammaaaaaaaazziiiiiing! Oh, woooow! Wooooow!" Sorry ladies, I'm just getting the lip gloss.

3:00 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2007
Arlington, MA

Came home with a chili cheeseburger and fries from Krazy Kary’s. Watched one episode of Flip That House. Went to TJ MAXX and found my birthday dress for $30. None of this Anthropologie stuff for me. Oh, and got adorable shoes to go with for $20. It’s a birthday bargain! At TJ MAXX!

3:30 – 6:00 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2007
Arlington, Somerville, Cambridge, MA

Phone conversations. Lots and lots of phone conversations.

7:15 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2007
Arlington, MA

Doorbell rings. My date is here. Going out to dinner at a surprise location. Still got my clown face on, and I’m wearing my skinny jeans.

We drive to Frank’s Steak House. My baby took me out for a steak dinner. I mean, am I lucky, or am I lucky?

Here we are at Frank’s.

My date had flowers and a beautiful card delivered to the table by the Maitre’D.

Yes, I cried. You know what? I’m old. Old people cry. It happens. What?

Here’s my steak.

Um. Here was my steak.

Here’s where they came out with the birthday cake.

Do you see how easy it is to make me happy? Chocolate, people. That's really it.

A chocolate mousse torte, actually.

Um….there are no words. It would cheapen it.

9:45 p.m. Friday, July 27, 2007
Davis Square, MA
We saw this.

12:15 a.m., Saturday, July 28, 2007
Davis Square MA
Then we saw this.

We laughed and cried and laughed and cried again! Awwwww....

3:00 a.m., Saturday, July 28, 2007

Fell into bed after 45 minutes in the bathroom with the eye makeup remover and a sander.

I also had a birthday dinner on Sunday evening! Photos and post coming up soon.

I love TJ Maxx. And steak. And chocolate cake.

Ooops, haven't been to your site since last comment. Yes, 08/04. It was nice and low key. Looks like you had a blast in NYC! I miss you like mad every time I come to this site. Ugh, guess that means I'm going to have to get some moula together to come to Boston.
