Birthday. (Hey, did you know I recently had a birthday?)

I know I already posted today, and me posting a second time makes me officially annoying, but I have a bunch of mystery gifts from all y'all and I want to know who sent them so I can thank you.

Cardz
You know I don't like a fuss. The redwoods called. Want me to stop destroying them for cardmaking. (Twelvedays, I got your card today. I am out making good choices; otherwise I'd write you a thank-you.)

I know it was you guys who sent me these gifts because they were addressed to June Gardens, which FYI, is not my real name.

So who sent me Abide With Me by Elizabeth Strout? (Cannot wait to read it and ignore the pets tonight.)

Who sent me my Muget des Bois perfume (squeal! Wearing it now.)

And where did I get the MadMen CD? (Cool! I didn't even know there WAS such a thing!)

Who sent the Hello Kitty car decal? (squeal! again! Putting it on my back window tonight. Who is 46? Who cares?)

You should have seen the dirty look the mail lady gave me today, by the way. What lugging of 8934920 packages for the last week? In the Southern heat?

Okay, so everyone confess. And THANK YOU!

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  1. I sent you nothing. Because not only do I not know your real name, I don’t know your real address.
    BUT, Dick Whitman knows both. So, what did he get you?

  2. I think Mother will be jealous of all of your cards…and gifts…and video. Or maybe she will be pleased that you took after her when it comes to celebrating birthdays.

  3. I sent a card which I do not see there! Lost in the mail! Oh noes!
    Otherwise, I got you a new car. Didn’t they deliver it yet? Those fuckers.

  4. Okay, Paula just made me pee my pants.
    What?? June has an honest to goodness real address?? Clearly none of the gifts are from me.
    However I have the MadMen CD and it is very good. I always feel like smoking a cigarette and drinking wine when I play it though. Oh hell, I feel like drinking wine even when I’m not playing it, who am I kidding?

  5. PS I’m 41 and I am a little embarrassed that I kinda like Hello Kitty. I found Hello Kitty “duck tape” at Le Target and had to have it. It’s now wrapped around my hiking poles, which is what we normally do with duct tape – it’s easy to pull off and reuse on the trail.

  6. Mad Man CD from me–Of course, I got you something I wanted. (And one for myself, too.) Are you at all perplexed that you received something mailed from Amazon that was not on June Garden’s wishlist? Apparently, I have previously undiscovered hacker talents.

  9. GardenGirl :: :: ::....If I HAD sent you perfume it would have been Sweet Honesty or Loves Fresh Lemon.. says:

    I didn’t send a gift but I WOULD like to claim responsibility for sending the expensive sounding perfume if that’s okay. No thank you card necessary.

  12. P.S. I’m not responsible for “Abide With Me.” But I’d like to know who is. Truly, a wonderful book.

    June, you have some lovely and thoughtful readers.

  25. Happy somewhat belated birthday, June! I did not send you anything, but your more faithful readers look like they’ve got you covered. I’m not sure if it counts, but when I was flying this weekend, I thought, “It’s June’s birthday!” And whoever said “Happy Antiversary” — yes, that, too.
    (And you’re a pretty awesome gift-giver yourself, apparently. Cleveland Indians coffee mugs rock.)

  26. Mine is the lotus necklace from your Amazon list and flea stuff for the fur balls. I’ve studied a bit of Buddhism and always loves the symbology of the lotus, and the one you chose was so pretty that I almost bought a second one for myself.

  27. I sent a gift from Amazon and forgot to sign it. It was not in the batch of gifts you
    described. Keep describing over these next
    few days, and I will let you know which one
    came from me. It does not involve Julie
    Andrews.

  28. My gift to you is that post right above me from my dear friend “volunteer in Asia”. You are welcome.
    But I have to say in all sincerity it makes me love the world to see so much niceness being spread all around amongst friends and strangers.
    And Hulk, just box those gifts up and mail them to June. The mail lady will thank you for one more package to deliver.

  29. Heya June, Abide With Me was from me, hope you enjoy reading it. It was hard to choose though, you have very pretty taste and I kind of wanted to buy two lots of everything so I could keep a pile of loot for myself.
    Hulk: “I didn’t use that the next morning” hahahahahaaaa!
