Kayso yesterday was a day in which I drove across the entire width of this state and back to retrieve some things from the attic of a place where I stored a bunch of stuff and which is now completely infested with bats. Because my life is really horrifyingly nightmarish interesting like that, and this is the sort of thing you do when you’re me. Other people might spend the day at, say, a normal job, or perhaps enjoying a random late-summer day off, or helping their children get geared up for back-to-school, or buying tickets to attend every upcoming Johnny event (see above!), or simply posing in a window and looking amazing against a cityscape backdrop:

So today is my birthday, and everyone has already been really really nice about that, and since no one has sighed yet or glanced impatiently at their watches no matter how many times I exclaim, “These are my favorites!” as I throw yet another batch of Artistry on Ice picspam on here, probably because everyone kindly recognizes that repeating oneself is a sign of aging, which I’m merrily doing right now as we speak, I’m just going to play my favorites card again today because it’s my birthday (did I mention that? Did we also talk about age-related forgetfulness? I can’t remember. Note: people who correspond with me frequently will recognize these as actual conversational moments), except that these are really really really my favorites. All from the second stop of the tour, Shanghai, bookended by simply stupendous fan art from Guangzhou.
