Even if the board does not say anything, I know today is Almirena's birthday.:tongue:

Many happy returns of the day Almirena.

Happy birthday! :smile: Did you do anything special today? Dare we ask how many candles adorn the cake this year?

Thank you! It's been a celebration-filled week so far - I had a birthday dinner at a Hungarian restaurant on Saturday, I had a birthday date on Tuesday, I had a family celebration tonight (with cake from my favourite cakeshop in the world,  Laurent - the Van Gogh is the cake I chose, and on this Saturday night, it's party time!

As to number of candles - none. It's a deep dark secret. Not even torture shall wring the number from me.

Thank you for the good wishes, and I'll report on the birthday gift situation with LIVE coverage from Birthday Land - I'll give you LIVE updates, and LIVE recaps, and LIVE special reports.

1. A Korean martial arts film whose name I've forgotten, and I put it upstairs, and feel too lazy to check right now.

2. A study bible that includes archaeological updates and Dead Sea Scroll stuff.

3. A recording called "Tragèdiennes" by Vèronique Gens - I've been hinting about this.

4. The first season of "Inspector Montalban" on DVD. YES!!!

5. Some perfume and conoisseur soap stuff wrapped up so prettily that I won't want to open it.

And that's it so far. There'll be more to report IN THE FIELD later.

This is Almirena, direct from Birthday News, signing off.

Where the night's kiss lights upon her; rose's rhapsodies, / Warm as oils, imbue this bliss-fed hour with trembling note
"Where-? And who-?" Her breath's unspoken soul is light's perdue
That, hidden, seeks the unseen with a sigh… "Ah, L'inconnu!"

It sounds like a great birthday so far!:biggrin: All those lovely presents and activities.

A very :birthday: from me as well, Almirena! :smile: :ng:

Santi, you almost gave me a heart attack.:tongue: I thought the board didn't display the birthday even if she had chosen it in her profile. :bash:

Krss lurks. Her eye sees everything! :nosy:

Sounds like a nice birthday period, Almirena. Would you believe me if I said that I have never seen an episode of Montalban?

Thank you - and I'm reporting LIVE from the field again...

Another gift has come in. It's Terry Pratchett's "Wintersmith" - hot off the press. *resists reading it right now*

They're going into my "Lots Of Lovely Loot" room, with little tags next to each exhibit. You know the sort of thing...

Exhibit 74: Maserati, wicked black. Year, 2006. Generously donated by wealthy billionaire for Almirena's birthday.

Why am I thinking that labelling gifts could be a good idea?
