Today's the big day!
It's been interesting thus far. Since this blog is properly titled: The Winter of Our Discontent it is only right that I start it out with some bitterness.
Number one/A: It's freaking humid. Merry land weather is redick.
Number two/B: I can not decide what to do this evening. I have plans but then plans were changed and now I have options and when faced with options I like to ignore the fact that I am in charge of picking and hide in a corner. Gah..
Number three/C: This is the big one:
Several co-workers, who I don't even talk to on a daily basis and I am pretty sure don't even like me have come up to say Happy DOB. Thats fine. It's actually very civil. I appreciate it. But I like to keep shit real folks. Three of them have followed the "Happy DOB" with: "I didn't know it was your birthday today, you should have told me!!".
Really? Why? Because you were going to run home and construct me a hand made card?
Now that that is out of the way!
I will say I am so very fortunate to have so many people who care about me. I have had so many invitations today to do things with people it's overwhelming. Thanks to everyone who made me feel special! I also share my DOB with a special gal I have known for over ten years. She is a carbon copy of me in many ways, yet so different in others. We just work together and thats all that matters really! So, to poots: Last year of our twenties...lets do something crazy this year...like go out on Sunday...after 8 pm!! :) Happy Birthday, I love, love, love you!
I think I received one of the most thoughtful gifts ever: Snack purchased me a jar of pickles and a jar of olives!
Jessapiller-always gets me something incredibly radical because we are both big kids. First of all my card from Jzill said: Happy Birthday Grandma. ha ha haha. I also got some really rad guitar necklaces. Including a red one like my JA! Also a bag full of crazy items from the party aisle. Jzill knows me too well.
Other than this I got some delivered flowers, a Coca-cola classic and a gift card, a really awesome necklace and after work I am thinking I will stop by the old Best Buy and finally pick up that ipod touch I have been wanting. I have been asking for it for two years now and finally got the go ahead. Since I am the computer savvy one in my home I get to go pick it out. I am really torn as to which one I should go with. An ipod classic or a touch. The touch does have built in wifi. Again, decisions I can not decide. Good thing I will have a co-pilot with me to help make up my mind.
