I say "sort of" because, you know, a Disney Princess costume party is not usually my idea of a rockin' time; but I'm actually considering wearing my entourage gown from Kate and Alex's wedding, just to go along with my Cinderella-clad daughter. We'll see how whimsical I feel on the day itself.
If you are planning to get me something--and you certainly don't have to, but if you are anyway--I would be delighted to receive any of the following:
Jacqua Sinfully Rich Body Butter in Buttercream Frosting, Lemon Meringue, or Chocolat
Philosophy Ultra-Rich Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash in Vanilla Birthday Cake, Candy Cane, Lemon Meringue, or Vanilla Ice Cream
Shalimar the Clown by Salman Rushdie. I haven't yet bought it myself because it's still in hardcover and I prefer paperback books, but Rushdie is my favorite author and I'm getting antsy waiting around.
a gift certificate in any denomination for Powerbooks, Fully Booked, or Ink & Stone. I kid you not; I got a Powerbooks GC from my sister-in-law two Christmases ago, and it was one of the best and most useful presents ever. An Ink & Stone discount card would be great, too.
a pretty, purse-sized notebook--roughly the size of my hand, so it fits in my purse
Waterman fountain pen ink refill cartridges in green. The smallest size, please, so I can fit a spare into my pen.
sugar-free anything. Candy, chocolate, but particularly drink mix like Crystal Light or Kool-Aid
the collected Mage: the Hero Defined by Matt Wagner. I'm kidding--this is atrociously expensive, so don't get it for me unless you happen to have recently won the lotto.
Given the fact that Sage's birthday and mine come so close together, it is totally okay to just get a present for her and not me, okay? Make daughter happy, make Mommy happy--it's two for the price of one, haha! You can check out Sagey's (longer) list here.The title of this entry, by the way, is a little joke alluding to an early Ranma 1/2 episode. And I don't know why I'm bothering to explain, because either you got it or you don't care, right? Oh, well, whatever.
