My birthday’s on Sunday! Plus, my sister turned 22 on Monday…which was the 22nd. Weird, no? Whodathunk that both myself and my sister would turn the age of our birthdates in the same year??
I had to go to the post office to pick up a package I’d gotten a notice for last week. I was pretty sure it was the bone marrow donor swab kit that I’d signed up for, so I had to go to the Eagle Rock post office to get it (although, I wish I could tell the post office people that the South Pasadena office is closer). So I got to the office and showed my ID and got… an Amazon box. Whoa.
For a minute, I thought, are they recycling boxes or something?
But it turned out that my buddy Sam had gotten me a book (Growing Up Filipino by Cecilia Manguerra Brainard) and a DVD (the first season of the 4400) for my birthday off my Amazon wish list! Heehee. Yayy! It totally made my day. But really, I hadn’t really meant the wish list to be for other people to use – it was more because I wanted to compile a full list of all the stuff I wanted from different online sources. Like, for example, the coat rack on my wish list is from Target, but I couldn’t find it on the Target.com site. Go figure.
But anyway, thank you Sam! Yayyy! My birthday’s coming up!
