Good morning, faithful readers! Do you know what today is? Awwww, yeah, it’s my BIRTHDAY, BITCHES! My birthday is the one day a year I get to be completely self-indulgent and be Queen of the Universe. Unfortunately, this year, I am working. Aaaalll day long. Then again, every time I try to plan something special to do on my birthday, something goes really wrong…
For my 23rd birthday, my friends in
tried to throw me a huge surprise birthday party. Three people showed and it was awkward city. It ended ok, at Denny’s with ice cream
sundaes (although, the nuts were stale).
For my 30th birthday, I decided I wanted to spend the day riding roller coasters. I went to Six Flags in
Mass. Of course, it was after I got held up at the
DMV to renew my license, and arrived just as a storm was headed my way. I got on one roller coaster, ate lunch, and
then the sky turned black, and we were flooded.
I left, got lost on the way to my hotel, and finally wound up in a nice

Last year, I wanted to do Six Flags again, but there was talk of rain, so I planned a big lunch at Luca’s in
with my friends. We went from a party of
nine to about 5, the table was kind of awkward, but hey, the food was awesome. Did I mention there was a massive downpour
that day, too?
|Also, made my own birthday cake. It looks hideous, but tasted delicious!|
So, this year I did not plan anything big and spectacular, I figured I’d be working. But you bet your butt I’ll mention it at every chance I get. See, 364 days out of the year, I totally know the world does not revolve around me. I am nothing special. But my birthday is the only day where I am ok with making it all about me. 34 years ago, I came into this world, and while I am still trying to find my place in it, I am going to celebrate my arrival to the hilt.
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOSS!|
Also, a big Birthday Shout-Out to the man who brought us “Buffy”, “Angel”, “Firefly”, and The Avengers. Happy Birthday, Joss Whedon! I love that I get to share the day with you!
