you're about as easy as a nuclear war

It's my birthday tomorrow, wheee! So who cares if I listened to Duran Duran all night, right? I just did.

Aside from that, I read something interesting in the Times. When you go to the Coffee Bean, and they ask you, "is that for HERE or TO GO?" It's not because - 1)That is a stupid ass question for coffee that comes in a paper cup no matter what, or 2) They have strong opinions about your driving with hot coffee between your legs. No, it's for state tax purposes. If you answer "YES" - they will tax your ass. If you answer "NO", hey - no tax, people! So always say, "TO GO."

You can thank me by buying me a Japanese Cherry Tea. Hot, please. Don't think I won't take you up on this.

Why exactly is that? California's a bizarre state, they tax you on your 'order in' but you can get 39 cent Cheerios?

Duran Duran is still one of my favorites after all these years. My husband took me to see them at Staples on our 10th anniversary this past February. Sigh. Happy Almost Birthday!

I got wise to those guys. It seems that bookstores with cafe's will ask the same.

Happy Birthday a day early.

Happy Early Birthday! Do something fun, like look for the Bible verses on the wrappers and cups at In-N-Out. :-)

Whole Foods does the same sneaky thing. I always feel a little nervous saying "to go" and then sitting down at the little table right outside, about 20 feet away from the person I just lied to.

But I do it anyway.

Yeah, I'd buy you a hot tea so you can pour it on your ever expanding belly! Then your MIL can figure out a way to comment on your weight and clumsiness. Then OG can getcha with that wicked letter opener...who cares as long as the shoes are fabulous?
