Thanks again, everybody! My birthday party yesterday was awesome! I have a TON of friends come over and we had a really good time. VFT_lover, I don't know the whole story so I may be makinh too many assumptions here, but you should remember that just because someone didn't remember your birthday/get you something, it doesn't mean that they aren't a friend (if that's what you meant at all...) By the way, I'm totally digging your avatar! PAK, saying you hope I have a cephalotus coming my way... Well, it doesn't sound all too encouraging, considering my ceph history (LOL!)
