I know I've used that Anya quote before, but I absolutely love it so have decided it's okay to use it again. (ETA: I just discovered I used same quote *exactly* a year ago, which randomly amuses me.) Especially since this post is about how awesome and wonderful my birthday was - thanks to all of you and my RL friends and family!! But first I must pass along (slightly belated) birthday wishes to two extremely wonderful women: [ profile] lillianmorgan and [ profile] tkp!!! I hope you have both had fantastic days - you deserve much happiness and wonderful things. *throws confetti and hugs you both*

But now let's talk about me! Opps, clearly all the absolutely lovely birthday wishes I received have totally gone to my head and I am imagining myself to be far more important than I am! Seriously though, I am still absolutely delighted by all the kind words from all of you as well as the delightful gifts I received!!!

How I spent my birthday )

Fic recs - truly awesome fic which you must all read! )

Yet again, I must pause and giggle at the quote in the subject line. This is one of the many reasons I love Anya: she says how we all feel. *g*

I had a really wonderful birthday, which has totally been an extended celebration (especially because there are packages arriving in the mail for me!!). Thank you to everyone for their lovely birthday wishes, they contributed to a joyous and awesome birthday!!! I've been feeling totally spoiled, I could get used to this! ;)

On my birthday I excitedly thanked my wonderful friends for their generosity, and today I want to do some additional thank yous!

Thank you to [ profile] electricalgwen for writing me a totally hot Spike/Xander story with fun banter and a sexy dynamic between them, plus park sex: Jolly Good Show. This was a particularly awesome surprise because Electricalgwen had already delighted me with a truly wonderful poem: Reason. Here's a taste of Jolly Good Show:

“There are no teddy bears. It’s the dark of the moon. Giles? What the fuck?” Spike nibbled Xander’s earlobe. “He’s never been to this park in his life and sure as hell isn’t going to start tonight. Quit being ridiculous, and touch me.”

Thank you to [ profile] savoytruffle for writing me a layered, poignant, witty, sweet and moving story: Quiet. This is part of her wonderful Wonder!Verse in which Spike is a barely legal hustler and Xander is a teenage dirtbag (baby). I love this 'verse and I highly recommend reading all the stories. Here's the first line of Quiet to tantalize you:

The beat of the bass borders on ridiculous — scratch that, crosses the border into ridiculous and commits several treaty violations there — but Xander only half notices as his steps fall into time with the thumpa-thumpa.

Besides wonderful fic and LJ flist love, I also was spoiled by family and friends. There were some delicious meals, tasty desserts, awesome gifts and fun times. I must give special thanks to my friend spookymonkey who not only got me excellent gifts and betas my fic, but who also created the Buffytinis we enjoyed at my party AND played bartender. The Buffytini Recipe )

Thank you to everyone!! *hugs and squishes*

I must just take a moment and giggle that my title quote is something that Xander says to Giles. That cracks me up every time!!!

My 29th birthday has started much much better than Valancy's in L.M. Montgomery's The Blue Castle. Here's an excerpt from the beginning of the book:

One does not sleep well, sometimes, when one is twenty-nine on the morrow, and unmarried, in a community and connection where the unmarried are simply those who have failed to get a man.

Deerwood [her town] and the Stirlings [her family] had long since relegated Valancy to hopeless old maidenhood. But Valancy herself had never quite relinquished a certain pitiful, shamed, little hope that Romance would come her way yet - never, until this wet, horrible morning, when she wakened to the fact that she was twenty-nine and unsought by any man.

Even though I'm 29, unmarried and it's raining I can reassure you all that I'm already having a wonderful birthday!!! I'm very thankful that I don't live in Valancy's time, in her town or have her family! (And yes, I am using my birthday as an excuse to quote from L.M. Montgomery!!! *g*)

I'm heading out in a few minutes to go and pick up last minute supplies - I'm having a few close friends over and we're going to celebrate by drinking Buffytinis (ie. chocolate raspberry martinis) and other chocolate-y martinis.

Before I run off I wanted to say some thank yous. I heart my f-list )

I hope to be back in a little while so I can celebrate the birthday of someone else on my flist *is mysterious* by posting the first chapter (yes, you read that right - there are chapters!) of a new fic.

*flails about happily*
