Happy Birthday Marian?

Since I did it last year, I thought I’d better make a birthday list. I’ve ordered it from most reasonable to least reasonable (approximately). I leave it to you to judge where it crosses over from one to the other, but the curve starts getting rapidly steeper starting at about #5 (which is where my realistic hopes and expectations end).

I’ll leave it there, before I start getting into giant plushy Turian territory. Nobody wants that.

    Turian plushy :D

  2. I will seriously buy you a whole Lemon-Orange Flan next time I’m in Vancouver (this AUGUST!) if you come out with Brandon for one of our sketch jams! I would love to meet you one of these days

    • Marian

      No flan required, for meeting me (though maybe I should re-think that position, in general).

      Sketch-jam-wise I make no promises, but if you can go get coffee with me and Brandon while you’re in town, then that would be great. I know where all the best muffins are hiding.

    I would have to look in storage but I might actually have a first of Earth Sea in paperback

    • Marian

      Don’t think I haven’t seen this!

      I’d like to see her do an Argonian, from the Elder Scrolls games.

  5. Happy (late? early?) birthday!

    I think I’m due for a new pair of gentleman’s shoes too…

    Why sister, the fact that over 50% of your list is reasonable is crazy. More unreasonable!

  8. Fabulous :) May you receive at least half of your list. What is your ideal type of birthday muffin?

    • Marian

      Thank you!

      On my birthday I ended up having, I think, a carrot walnut spice muffin. My enduring neighborhood favourite, though, is raspberry-blueberry banana oat, and that’s probably a better example of my ideal.

      • Both of those sound absolutely delectable, your favorite particularly so. We have a place in Minneapolis that makes amazing, cheap vegan muffins that I swear must have fairy dust in them or something, they’re that good. So light and fluffy and HUGE to boot :)

  9. You gave up so soon after your giant shiny. I was just getting started figuring out how to get all these things for you! :-) Happy Birthday!

    • Marian

      I think I got to “giant shiny”, and became intimidated by how long (and unreasonable) it could actually get, if I kept going. It was like looking into the cold and infinite dark of outer space.

      And thank you!

  10. Even drawn, a lemon orange flan looks delicious!

    Fun post — thank you for sharing this…


  11. simply wonderful! hope you get ALL of the things on your list!

  35. What’s a birthday shiny? Why don’t I ever get one of those? :(

    • Marian

      Well, I’m usually the one buying a birthday shiny for myself. It’s a very satisfying tradition, though.

  36. Wow.. Its so lovely :)

  37. happy b-day… great pics! ;-)

  38. Can someone tell me what he means by “shiny”? I feel very blank.

    • Marian

      That’s my term for any kind of shiny thing, usually a crystal or mineral specimen of some sort. I collect them like a crazy treasure-obsessed person.
