Birthday Presents

My roomate got me a crockpot for my birthday, which was so very exciting. I'm a nerd and had been wanting one forever, and I think it will get quite a bit of use. Friends have come over for crockpot dinners the past two weeks, and we're going to make it a little tradition now. There's just something wonderful about throwing a bunch of stuff into a pot, letting it sit for 4 or 6 or 8 hours, and tada! you have a whole meal. Not much effort needed. I love it. After dinner this past week, we played Pictionary. I haven't played it in years, and it was SO MUCH FUN. I had the bouts of laughter where you're laughing so hard that tears are streaming down your face. A nice, wonderful, good laugh. You just need that sometimes. =D

Since my beloved pink cruiser was stolen on my birthday last year, and I had been bike-less for a year, I decided (or, Alicia decided for me, rather) that I was going to buy myself a bike for my birthday. It's nothing like my cruiser (can't afford that right now), but a bike is a bike. We've gone on a couple of rides, and it's so nice to get back into doing that. I have quite a few friends around here who have bikes, and am quite tempted to start up a bike club again. Did I mention that I'm a nerd? =D
