So I don't want anything for my birthday gift-wise, but you know what I do want? Some internet sycophants. Any blather I post here ought to be seconded in the comments with you all posting "I totally agree! Wow Kerry, you're so smart! Amazingly clever!"
Sorry, I've just been reading some librarian blogs and getting cranky. Some of it is left over from Last Tuesday From Hell, but some is fresh.
Speaking of birthdays, the cake will be vanilla and coconut (no lemon filling! I don't like it) from Great Scott's Bakery in Rocky River. I am working 12-5 on my birthday, so it has moved to the evening. I bought a 10" cake, but the owner assures me it freezes.
Otherwise I will be traipsing around town on New Year's Eve doing a reverse version of caroling in which I gift others with slices of cake.
