Birthday Report  
I finally got the damn ice cream cake I've wanted since I was seven. Huzzah!

I got a couple of really awesome pieces of fanart (warning: one is a bunch of inside jokes for me and Mars). If you want to see them, here they are:

And my grandmother got me a really nice hardcover Hellsing book that has episode summaries, character profiles, and a D&D-style game featuring Hellsing characters. It's really kickass. I'm hoping I can get Jake to play the game with me. (It opens with a highly editorialized essay on Hellsing's place in modern vampire lore. I didn't agree with all of their points, but it was a really good essay and I could see their POV. It also made me wax nostalgic about the TV show Forever Knight that I adored in junior high.)

I also got a lot of IOUs for birthday presents. Oh well. Not like I ever really celebrate, anyway. *Thumbs up.*

Got a job interview tomorrow at 9AM. Wish me luck!

I will probably be done with the garnet rosary today. It's going to be $40-50. I haven't done the bead tally yet -- I hope that's an okay price. That's as close to cost as I can give you for something with garnets. I hope she'll like it. The cross and the centerpiece are both sterling silver and the Our Father beads are pewter. As for the mirrors, we have 2"x3" and 5"x7" ones. Tell me which she's interested in; I'll have to go pull them from Moonbeams in a Jar, so I need a couple days notice. Most of them have a rose motif on the frame; all are framed with metal, mostly pewter. When you tell me what size she wants, I'll be able to give you an actual price. You can email me, comment in my LJ, or catch me on AIM about details. Hope you had a happy birthday and good luck with the interview.

That sounds perfect, and she agrees. I am thinking I will probably pay for the stuff myself as a late Christmas present after I start working (the interview went really well, but it was a screening interview. I have to have an interview with the department supervisor now). Also, you can tell Renée that I finally got another eye doctor appointment. It took my eye feeling like someone was stabbing it and losing vision in it entirely to do it, but I did it! (It's for tomorrow, Friday.) I am trying to determine if I have enough time bumming around here (helping my grandmother's boyfriend with something to pick up some spare cash) to hop on AIM, so I might see you on AIM.

Re: I'm late...
I'm not online much myself these days, so in case I don't get on LJ or AIM before the 21st, Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!
