Another Birthday Month comes to a close.

The only thing I didn't do this month is have dinner with my birthday twin (yes Ennairda, I am talking to YOU!).

Otherwise this has been the most fantastic birthday month ever.

I got my NASCAR/Showtunes Fantasy League Champion trophy which was awesome. The Evil Twin and BiL had martini night at their house. My Dad got me a NASCAR Monopoly game, because you know, face it - I like NASCAR. I've gone out with friends and had enough fun and drinks and laughs to power me through April!

On the actual night of my birthday though, La Maman took me out and indulged me in the most delicious oyster feast this year. Let me just say that I don't love seafood however oysters and salmon sashimi are the most delicious things a person can eat from the ocean.

I suspect that the real reason I love oysters is because I read Consider the Oyster by M.F.K. Fisher, the same writer who got me to go have a nice dinner at a nicer restaurant on my own, without a book.  Anyone who can read that book and STILL not like oysters is illiterate. Oysters truly are the briny pearls of the ocean and I love them.

Delicious Happy Birthday Oysters!


Oh and in case you were wondering how I feel about salmon sashimi, let me tell you that to me raw salmon tastes like butter (buttah! yum!) but cooked salmon makes me gag. Weird, right?
