My friends are wonderful.
Even though I put "NO GIFTS!" on the e-vite to my party, I was still regaled with CDs, flowers, bottles and bottles of reeeeeeeeeeally good wine and champagne, a Crate & Barrel gift card, Lowe's gift cards, card cards, a gourmet cupcake, a computer game and other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting. All of these things are wonderful, appreciated and make me feel very loved.
But yesterday I got to the office, and a work buddy of mine gave me this:
The first page I randomly turned to said "Wisdom of Ralph" and had the quote, "If rice wriggles, then it isn't rice." I fell to my knees laughing, and soon had laugh/cried all of my mascara off. Everything I read in this book I hear in my head in Ralph's voice, and it makes me grin from ear-to-ear. I love him. My main complaint about "The Simpsons" has always been that there's never enough Ralph. My wishes have come true with this book.
By the way, a couple of the things Ralph wants to be when he grows up: A traffic cone; Mario Brothers; the Secretary of Gnomeland Security.
