you would think i landed on mars


it is my actual birthday, and i'm surrounded by approximately six thousand balloons in three different shades of pink, a surprise from ruggy.  this was a hard won surprise, as the mall he went to had put a ban on balloons.  no lie.  i laughed in shock.  who does that?  the grinch who stole hallmark...

but my ruggy would not be defeated!  he has the lungs of adonis!  and no grinch could put a damper on this day, as i'm still grinning from last night's prom at sew LA.  thank you all, ever so very head-to-toe much, for coming out and celebrating with me, in all manners of reality.  Best.  Prom.  EVER.

evidence on that to come!  but now, i'm going to spend some birthday time with my greek god, and have a little hair of the dog.  how fortunate that several lovely ladies supplied me with several lovely bottles...

a thousand thank you's, a million merci's... the sewing blogisphere rocks the known and unknown universe!

  15. Many happy returns of the day, m'dear! Enjoy your Oona balloons. I'm trying to figure out who a mall would have to pay off to make their environs a rubber inflatable free zone... I can only guess they've somehow tied it to the patriot act? So sad. Well, bless Ruggy and his rugged disregard to the risk of headspins and ID checks, you've got a man who knows how an Oonabirthday needs to be done up, the best present of all :o)

  21. Happy birthday.

    For the banned balloons, I am assuming that if it was banned to have a ballon on premises, it is probably because the ballon can block security camera's? Then if it is a ban of some sort on the sales,it could have something to do with the helium shortage that California is having.
