I have a Fairy Godperson who spoils me at least twice a year; birthday and Christmas every year.
FG got me my KitchenAid mixer after hearing me say that I drool over them in the stores but can't afford one.
FG got me my Nook Color because FG saw me reading voraciously and laughed that I would take 5 books in my luggage with me to Panama.
Then the next couple of birthdays/Christmases, FG got me several Barnes & Nobles gift cards to help stock my Nook up with books.
FG and I are part of a group that has this thing with hand lotion. We are CONSTANTLY using it; we are some ashy people. Others will come to me and grab some off me. So FG went and imported some for Christmas last year from Great Britain. Best. Things. Ever.
So it's my birthday. FG is a world traveler. We were discussing suitcases for some reason and I mentioned I thought those hard-sided ones were very cool.
BAM. Happy Birthday to Me!
Hartmann's new PC4 line. It has TSA-approved locks too, with a key system that TSA uses. It's carry-on sized and has a 10-year warranty.
I'll get to test-drive it in October on my next trip. :)
