It’s my birthday. I share a birthday with my teddy bear – Teddy was gifted to me the day I was born – a girl I don’t like anymore, the lovely Ms. Vine and, newly decreed*, Kimba. Happy birthday all – I am raising my glass filled with a Sunset Rose in your honor. Have lovely, lovely birthdays. Tomorrow, killer Miso Chicken. Enjoy!
* Kimba was found on the street, so she does not have a birthday per se. The vet estimates it was around July based on some vet-like test thing, so I have given her my birthday to keep it simple.
