December 8, 2014


Where to begin? This has been an extraordinary birthday - right from the start of Birthday Week with the birthday fairy bringing me a dinosaur egg, right through to Hazel's chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, learning the basics of tango and experiencing an amazing tasting menu! All of that sprikled with the most wonderful birthday wishes to infuse not only today but this whole next stage of my life. I think it's going to be awesome.


Birthday Covert Cookie Operation: Behind the Scenes! Yep, this was the chocolate chip cookies, before they were cookies. It's like a prequel! And now they are all gone! Not to self: Put 1/2 in the fridge/tupperware next time so that there are soft ones for yummyness longer.


It was finally revealed at the end of the night at D&D that Reg' first character was indeed dead. I tried my hardest to leave with the body but a druid wouldn't let me. After being bitten and poisoned by a two-headed dog, I figured it was better to retreat and make it out alive. When one of the players fell down a giant shaft, landing on my head deeming me unconscious I was relieved. No more big decisions! It was so much fun. I don't remember laughing that hard in a long, long time.

Sounds like your first foray into D&Ding was a total blast Suzie! I love your persistence and strength of character right to the very end! Sounds like it was quite the exciting campaign.

First (of several) late adds from me!

LOL! Look at that covert cookie operation. Awesome. And I can say they resulted in some truly awesome cookiness - my absolute favourite. Thank you so much for making them, Shannon!

Wow, Suzie, that sounds like a wild adventure. Very intense! I'm so glad it's all accompanied by laughter :)

What a dream and treat-filled birthday Jamie!!!

Shannon, I know how challenging covert cookie-making can be, well done.

Yes, D&D has been fun. Sounds like we need to take a break though so new people can play. I will miss it!

Great picture Jamie! I love seeing you in a dance studio. Did they let you turn on the twinkie lights? I'm so glad you had awesome birthday week and so many great birthday wishes for the bday and beyond ! Woohoo!

I'm sorry to hear you have to take a break from gaming Suzie, maybe new adventures await you :)
