Behold the smiling Janna!

I'm excited.
Here's why.
Actually, there are a couple reasons, so have a seat and drink some tea while you're waiting. Or water. Or something with bubbles in it. Heck, I don't care.

There are three things to tell you about:

1) I got a package in the mail on Thursday. It was from Wayne, and it contained CHOCOLATE! He sent some yummy gourmet peanut butter cups, as well as my most favorite chocolate confection in the whole world! Chocolate covered candied orange peel! I blogged about loving it a few months ago over at Jantics, and now I have some of my very own. It's hard to find! It'll be even harder to find once I eat it all. Thank you, Wayne!!

2) Friday, I got a package in the mail from Fab! It's stuff he bought for me while he was in Vegas last week! He went to Quark's Bar (The Star Trek Experience), and I happened to mention that I am a complete Trek nerd. So he got me a GIANT mug with Quark's logo on the side, plus he got me a tribble! When you squeeze the tribble, it makes cute little chirpy purring sounds, and it shakes. Adorable. Thank you, Fab! :)

3) One of my best friends is coming to visit me next week! I went to high school with him many years ago. I graduated in '88, he graduated in '86. And now he will kill me because I have divulged his age to everyone. It's Steve! He lived in California (LA) for quite a few years but recently moved to New York (NYC). He'll be visiting his friends and family in Michigan this week. I've talked him into going to band with me on Tuesday, so he can hear us rehearse. I'll introduce him to my ABC group friends afterward. And Monday I'll be driving him over to Dowagiac so he can meet Morgen! I only get to see Steve every couple years or so. This will be great!

O.k., once again I am incredibly jealous, but oh so happy for you! Have fun with your visitor!

Janna said...

Katherine: I do!

Mr. Fab: It's GOOD! Try it!

Square1: Thank you! :)

Steven said...

Can't wait to see you! We'll have a blast!! But no flashing officers with your boobs while I'm in the car please.

Big hug for Steven from all of us when you see him, and have a great visit with Mo!

P.S. You're featured for my word picture sunday this week.

Janna said...

Steve: You never let me have any fun.

DesertSongbird: I will! :)

Square1: Hooray!! I love it!

Mo said...

1) Aren't those the best peanut butter cups?!?! Wayne is a great friend!

2) LOVED the Star Trek Experience. Don't feed the tribble after midnight or get it wet. Oh wait... That's Fab.

3) Can't wait to meet Steven!

Delurking once again to tell you that I'm TOTALLY JEALOUS of your Tribble--I always wanted one. If yours multiplies (as they do, you know), can I have one? Thanks. :D

Now I have to go to Fab's and boil a bunny, if you'll excuse me.

Turnbaby said...

LMAO at Mo again--you are on a roll sugar!!

Don't you just love little yummy surprises?

Oooooo you so need to put the tribble on the blog!!

Wayne said...

It's fun making people happy! Have fun with Steven. He sounds like a blast!

Janna said...

Morgen: I always knew Fab was a gremlin...

Monty: If my tribble multiplies, you can absolutely have at least one of the offspring. I promise.

Turnbaby: Perhaps one of these days my tribble WILL make an appearance on the blog!

Wayne: Steve is great! :)
