9 More Shopping Days

Yes, yes y’all. I’m clocking four decades this month, and you have just nine more days to find that super special gift for yours truly.

Just kidding. Not about turning forty. That part is totally happening. Complete with me doing a little booty shake to celebrate.

As for the gifts, I’m pretty much good to go—what with the whole “cancer’s in remission” thing. One more booty dance.

If I had to make a wish list for my fortieth birthday, it would be totally unreasonable, overpriced, purely self-indulgent shit--you know, like the list you make for Santa when you still believe.

I’ve got some spare time, thought. So, let’s have a go at my make believe list.

  • 4 bedroom 4 bath house with a pool and a hot tub
  • insanely fabulous DSLR camera that takes grown up pictures
  • trip to Europe
  • a beach house
  • $300 jeans, $700 shoes, $200 bras and panties, and I’ll probably need a shirt to go with that, maybe two
  • a month on Kauai

On my altruistic day (NOT my 40th birthday), I’ll make a different list--one where I wish for world peace, clean water, a special island for Perez Hilton, stuff like that. For now, I’ll keep drooling over the Christian Louboutins.

Seriously, if I had ANY cash at all I swear I'd buy you something sooo fanfuckingtabulous you'd consider running away with me and raising our love child miniature breed of a yapping dog and we'd dress it in little doggie outfits & take it to the little doggie cafe's so it could mingle and sniff & lick all the other mini dog arses...

But that whole remission thing is a pretty sa-weet gift so I say if he's feeling up to it have him play barkeep for old times sake while you window shop online. And if you're feeling frisky, , that may or may not help you.

And in the words of my hubby, "I am truly amazed at how beautifully & gracefully you've aged, like a fine vintage wine becoming more intricate & full of flavor by the year, while all the others have aged like mayonnaise."

Love you girl and hope this year is the best evah!!!

Ha! You totally made me snort. Had a full on visual of us in that doggie cafe with our pooch in a rhinestone-studded ensemble. And I am stealing that wine/mayo quote, for sure. Big love, back at ya.

I want new shoes too.
