Party of the (half) century

Well I must say…I don’t know if I could have handled any more fantastic surprises. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe my ultra-fab birthday party last night, so I won’t try.

Surprise guests kept arriving — I was blown away! Here are some mementos:

The mastermind, who went through my cell phone address book and invited every name he recognized

I have too many photos (Jane is bringing some more over — I hope I can find some of RD and Bonnie) and not near enough time and space to show them all this morning. Suffice it to say that I have an incredible family and fantabulicious friends — all more than I could ask for or deserve.

OK. I’m off to BFF Kay’s house for tea, then call up Lars & Helen for coffee…then I write a paper. Lovely.

Thank you again to everyone — what a crazy fantastic night!

I was standing a little too close to Stein….I think I’m coming down with a bad case of Stein-Flu.

I think you deserve it for bursting my international soccer bubble. By the way, I was able to watch the 2nd half of a USA victory over El Salvador.

I still feel bad about that Mr. Stein. Being a soccer fan is probably tough enough without people pretending to have an interest. Maybe I should check out this international soccer stuff for real.

So glad the party was a hit! It was a great time :)
Sam and I trying to find the place was quite the adventure…let’s just say our directions ended up being torn into a billion pieces. Ha.

“Meg, I really think that was the right road… there was a soccer field.”

“Nah, just keep going. There’s suppose to be a light.”

So I’m winging my way back to Dallas & purely by accident (read: I forgot to “…disable the wireless feature on your portable device…”) discovered that AA now has in-flight wireless Internet! So I’m reading your blog & posting an articulate and compendious reply at 34,000 feet! It was SOOOoooo good to see you & meet Thriller – wish my stay could have been longer, but gotta take care of family business back in the Big D! Good luck on the discussion & paper! Hopefully NEXT visit we’ll have more time!

**SMEWCHES**

BoomR in-flight!
