i'm just a literary tease, my reputation's on its knees.

My Birthday. Yay.

December 21, 2004

Do you remember how when you were a kid it was superfly to have your birthday when you had school because you got to take treats to school that day?

I remember one birthday, I was in, oh, 5th grade and I had a tupperware container of birthday cupcakes that I had been carting around with me all day. I was supposed to pass them out in the afternoon but my teacher forgot and the class was watching a movie instead. I remember sitting on the foyer in the middle of the school next to the office crying my eyes out because I was sad that everyone had forgotten my birthday.

Just then, two boys from S.E.A.L. came walking up to me smiling. I told them why I was sad and they told me to come to the S.E.A.L. room with them. I went and handed out the cupcakes there instead. ... Was there a point to my story? Ah yes, geeks are my friends!!!

I was trying to research what "SEAL" stands for online and couldn't come up with anything.. Any guesses? (mine: Southmoreland Elementary Academic Losers, Southmoreland Elementary Accursed Learners... that's all)

No, really, my point is that today is my birthday. Today was also my work Christmas party. So I pretended all day that the party was really my birthday party. Yay! I was going to wear a tiara to work and decided that would be going a little overboard. So I am going to wear my tiara as soon as I get home tonight. So there. Muhaha!

Really. I have nothing to say. I just really want to make 100 entries by the end of the year and I'm kind of stretchin' it.

Oh. I decided to get a degree in Graphics Design from the community college. That's exciting and fun. Yay!

Hey, I know what it's like to have your birthday forgotten... my family forgot my 13th (golden) birthday--I was 13 on Friday the 13th :-) That's rockin'.

But anyway, I hope your birthday was a good one--it must rock to have winter solstice as your b-day :-D

Yay! Today's my birthday (the day after yours). Kinda sucks because I'm only 20. Oh, well. I made it past the "terrible teens."

It has always been cool to have my birthday on the solstice! It's strange though because for a person born on the first day of winter, I sure do hate that cold white stuff!

Karissa - how did you family forget your birthday? did they make it up to you later?

Evan - it only gets better from here! i find that the older I get, the better I get! yay!

Oh, it was an awful story... I woke up and no one was home. When they -did- arrive home, everyone was in a terrible mood, and someone even said that they wished the day would've never happened... I stormed to my room and then they remembered what day it was. They tried to make it up to me the next day and so on, but can you really make something like that up?? *sigh* Oh well. At least no one's forgotten since then, I suppose. ;)

Man that sucks! I bet every birthday since then has had a lot of overcompensation on your family's part.. which works for you ;c)

Sorta... but I tend to get the best birthday parties on account of my b-day being during the summer--I've had pool parties at my house for years, and they end up being barbeques and bonfires, too :)

My golden birthday was on Friday the 13th too! ROCK ON! It only happens in one in 12 million! We are blessed!
