Thanks for the birthday greetings! It was a pretty good day overall -- I met up with [personal profile] minim_calibre for sushi lunch, and she was kind enough to give me an adorable blue Captain America bag, and inside it she'd put her chibi Cap shirt that I had admired when we got together a while ago. I went to the store where she got hers, but they were all gone, so I figured it was no Cap for me, but she wanted to get another one in a color she prefers, so she gave me the shirt off her back!

Then I got home and found a beautiful floral bouquet and chocolates on my doorstep from [personal profile] killabeez, which was so uplifting.

I had drinks with my neighbor, and then watched the first Cap movie while I read fanfic, so all in all it was a very Capilicious birthday, which is a good kind to have. The only bad side of the day was that holy crapballs was it raining -- the streets were mostly flooded everywhere I went, and I nearly got creamed by a large van in Ballard going about 40 through a blind intersection that left me really badly shaken. It was a very close near miss, and I was definitely thinking of the two other people on my flists who actually did get in accidents on or around Thanksgiving.

I got some messages from sis_r's friends, and I haven't heard much from them in a long time, so that was nice. One of the hardest things about not having anyone around anymore is that I feel like I'm the only person left who remembers my sister, like her imprint upon the world has just vanished except for me. So I'm glad that there are a couple people who still do remember her birthday and that she was here in the world.

We lost our power/cable/internet on Wednesday, have been running on emergency generator, and only got intermittent cable/internet back late last night -- still no power from the utility company yet -- which is all to say, "Sorry I missed sending you birthday greetings on the day, but I was thinking about you."

Yay, for a good kind to have!

I made my parents watch First Avenger while we made fruitcake. I kept trying to tell Dad that the similarity, tonally, to US WWII films of the actual WWII era was a feature, not a bug, when he complained about that. (From the point of view of a Canadian who saw plenty of them when, as he said, they were actually new.)

(I knew going in that this would be his reaction, but I think he'll really enjoy Winter Soldier, so I'm getting him ready for it.)

It was great to see you, and happy birthday again, even though it's a day later!

Happy belated birthday! And eeeek! So glad you didn't get into an accident, too! Close calls like that are so scary.
