Day 6 No Comment


The photo today is from my birthday party LAST YEAR. There is NO party this year. I’m officially closer to 40 than 30 now, and that doesn’t sit too well. Getting old sucks. I did bring in cornetti and pasticciotto for my coworkers but that's required by law. I was a big supporter of bringing in doughnuts for your birthday in the US so I understand the importance of cornetti.
As a little celebration I’ll add the words to “Happy Birthday to Me” by Cracker. The song is hilarious even if it doesn’t make any sense. It just has some good lines in it.

I was having a good sleep…in my car
In the, parking lot of the…Showboat Casino hotel

I say, "I remember you…you drive like a PTA mother"
You brought me draft beer…in a plastic cup

I'm feeling thankful for the small things, today
I'm feeling thankful for the small things, today

Happy, Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me and to you

Happy, Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me and to you-ah

I'm feeling thankful for the small things, today
I'm feeling thankful for the small things, today

I remember you…I crashed your wedding
With some, orange crepe paper…and some Halloween candy

A sometimes…I wish I were Catholic
I don't know why
I guess I'm happy to see your face…at a time like this

Happy, Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday to me and to you-ah

So Happy Birthday to me and to all the other cool people that have birthdays today. For famous people born on this day I found only Ethan Hawke and John Phillip Sousa.

Happy Birthday!!!! I am now in your decade :) so I can sympathize. You look great in your pic from last year. I hope you do what I did on my b-day - I sent out the email to my coworkers (about 40 people) about the treats after my "favorites" all had their pick. That's my rebellion for having to bring my own treats!

Happy birthday.

Almost 40 is not so bad. Just think, you dont have to go through puberty again.

Hope that all is well....

I made it through my birthday and I don't feel any older, really. I'm just happy a little stomach flu I had went away so I could eat some things bad for me.
I think I'm going to have to block Kent from leaving comments!!!
