Just a Quick One

Cuz time is of the essence and all...and I can't tell if I have a fever or not...but this just can't wait:

Happy Birthday Richard!!!
Edited on Sunday March 18th:

Now that Richard and Steve have the package, the fever is gone, and I can type again, I'll post what was inside :).

The first time I met Richard...has it really been 11 years now? It was to drop off my X at his house. They were off to an SCA event and I was off to my last ever Ren Faire Memorial Day weekend. Not only did I get to watch the first ever South Park--Jesus VS Santa--but as I excused myself to use the bathroom, I caught sight of an, well, an altar. A Wonder Woman altar. I was later to learn just how important an icon Wonder Woman was to Richard.

The altar is long gone, or rather, I didn't see it in the new house...but I know (I mean he wrote about her in his book) that Wonder Woman is still a part of his life somehow, somewhere.
So how could I pass up this gem:
I should have snapped a picture of the back cover, the quote is awesome:
"The first time I saw the Wonder Woman, she was laughing.
True, she was fighting lions, but she was laughing.
The audience loved it."

Need I say more about this one?
Maybe we should all have some of this tucked away for a rainy day.

The gum Richard mentions in the comments: Sorry for the picture, the "macro" setting on my fisher price camera is a joke, to say the least.
"Next to the Last Supper" Gum
Yes, I grew up Catholic, as did Richard. Yes, yes, I know, I know, going to hell.

Thank you, my sweet! I got our package and we laughed so much! What a great surprise, the gum especially.

In honor of it, I'm wearing the T-shirt I used to wear when I was doing Catholic youth work... Okay, I also look hot in it now, but whatever.

Feel better. Love, me
