Despite the plague ravaging members of the Ellis/O’Brien household, this was one of my more pleasant birthdays. The common cold is preferable to appendicitis- boy, I hope I never get THAT one again- and I got to spend a lovely evening in doing almost exactly what I wanted to do: relax, eat dinner, and watch TV. Dani made me a banana cream pie from scratch, and let me tell you, as a banana cream pie lover, that “from scratch” bit carries a lot of weight in the taste department.
I want to thank everybody truly for all the birthday wishes. They had me smiling all day.
