One Year Ago Today

One of the things I really love about having a blog is the ability to go back to previous posts and see what was happening on Mt. Vernon Street. One year ago today, the sky looked like this:

and I was scramblig to find a gift for Maddie. Today, the sky looks only slightly less grey and Maddie's birthday has not only been remembered, but her gift has already been purchased and shipped.

Maddie, like most of my friends (and family for that matter) has a twisted sense of humor. So this year's gift is (she doesn't read this, so I don't have to worry)...

from the weird and wacky

Having a bad day? Boss being a jerk? People just suck? Send your Avenging Unicorn after them! Comes with four interchangable horns (classic spiral, chrome, glow and pearlescent) to spear the boss, the new age lady or the mime through the chest! As the Merch-Bot description says, "It's like voodoo dolls for your true enemies."

The first time I saw this, I lost it. I loved it! Yes it's sick. Yes it's twisted. And yes, it is just perfect for Maddie! Her birthday is Monday. I can't wait for her to see it (sure beats the failed attempt at a wrap skirt)!
Happy Thursday, everyone!
