More birthday presents for me! Today (just in time to be taken on my Vegas trip) I got a prezzie in the mail from Random Michelle. It's in keeping with her "Random (but not really)" persona: it is kind of random (I certainly was surprised!) but is for my birthday, so -- not really.
She went on my Amazon wishlist and got me The Years of Rice and Salt, by Kim Stanley Robinson, which I had put on there based on the recommendation from another online friend, belsum. I've been wanting to read it for a while, and because it's a gift, I'm putting it on the top of the "to read" pile.
Thanks so much, Michelle! You are very sweet and I am glad I know you (and not just because you gave me a gift). You are truely Teh Awesome. You will have to send me your address, in case I want to randomly return the thought -- if I have, oh, cookies or something that need a good home. ;)
Later: Oooh, today's my lucky day. I also got my passport back, complete with an Indian tourist visa. Yay!!!!
