wait for it... Abby! (who very kindly told me that i'm not old)
I've sent Abby an email. I can't wait to get started on her goodies.
Thank you to everyone who participated!
oh and in case anyone cares: i've been 30 for a few hours and the world has not ended yet. i'm mildly surprised. actually people who should have wished me a happy birthday by now haven't, and people i haven't seen or talked to in years have sent me emails with birthday wishes. kinda weird, but welcome i suppose.
