|Magrathean Sperm Whale and a Bowl of Petunias for my 42nd birthday.
So the picture above is showing off the hilariously awesome gifts my HB gave me for my 42nd birthday. He also bought me a new desk and bookshelf to increase my studying aesthetic. Can you say spoiled rotten? That's me! If you fail to see the joke with the whale and the flowers, let me enlighten you. The book, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, is one of my favorites. There are some silly plot points that include the fact that 42 is the answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. Also, there is a place where the whale and the petunias have a starring scene, and it is an absolute hoot. So my husband consulted with nerds to find out exactly what one buys a HGTTG fan on their 42nd birthday, and WHAMMO! Did I mention how absolutely blessed I am? *sigh*
We only have one more class day this week before we get out for Christmas break. I'm really looking forward to catching up on some sleep and completing an online anatomy practical and spending some time with my family. Wait. Sleep, yes, and family, yes. NOT looking forward to doing an anatomy assignment OVER THE HOLIDAYS! My feelings about that are pretty much just... resigned. But that's all I have to say about that.
I just wanted to wind this up by saying Merry Christmas to everyone who is following along on this crazy journey with me. I was looking at the number of page views on my humble little blog, and I was blown away. I hope you all have a lovely holiday, and that you are able to be surrounded with love and warmth and happiness. Of course, if you're with your family, there's probably some other stuff thrown in there too, but I hope it's MOSTLY happy. If you find that you're stuck in town alone and need to borrow some family, please let me know, I have PLENTY to go around! Seriously, though, don't spend the holidays alone, reach out to someone and make it a new tradition. I am happy to include any "orphans" in my Christmas celebration. AND I make a killer coconut pie. If I can remember how to turn the oven on...
