So, what did I wind up doing for my birthday last week? Thanks for asking. I dedicated myself to yet another one of those Wow I Sure Do Love Austin adventures. To wit:
|Then we had to go walk that shit off. So Warren and I headed over to Town Lake (I'm calling it Town Lake, and shut up if you were getting ready to correct me). Here we saw many things, like a train carrying a bunch of who the hell knows what.|
|We ran into Lionel Richie on our stroll.|
|Given his lifestyle choices, I have always been especially delighted to find SRV waiting for me at a place where folks go to work out and get healthy.|
|This is my cake-- I actually had it a few days before my bday but want you to see it anyway. Henry's ladyfriend, K, made it for me. IT WAS DELICIOUS!|
|After Town Lake we went to the Blanton where Warren fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a professional columnist.|
|This is me in the ladies' room of the Blanton, looking in the magical mirror that shows you what you look like naked and makes you realize we're all art!|
|In the Blanton gift shop, Warren bought me this tiny chicken purse to match the chicken handbag I bought awhile ago. I am super classy with my matching accessories!|
|Outside the Blanton, Warren gave me my other birthday gift-- because a girl needs a way to transport her chicken purses, you know?|
|After the Blanton we went over to the Oakwood Cemetery, off of MLK on the East Side. If you look closely at this headstone, you will find the true definition of Grave Error.|
|I love cemeteries any time of the year, but I especially liked taking a visit on my birthday. |
Quod tu es, ego fui. Quod nunc sum, tu eris.
Truly words to live by.
|Then it was time for dinner at Texas French Bread-- HOORAY!|
