All About Me

I've never been subtle about my birthdays. I've never been retiring, or depracating, or less excited as I got older. I'm more likely to tell complete strangers that it's my birthday soon, than try and hide the date from friends. I love birthday cake and flowers, cards and hugs. I like kiddy-style parties, with crisps and peanuts, and I will always love the little pineapple cubes and cheese on cocktail sticks. Oh, God yes.

It is in such a childish spirit of excitement that I tell you...



Of course, as usual, I'm working. In fact I'm moving offices *chews fingernails* so I've chosen to open pressies later this evening after all that's over with.

But it's still my birthday.

Happy Birthday Anna - hope your day goes well and you're not too tired from moving when it's time to celebrate
And of course you should celebrate each and every year. That's the whole point.
p.s. what's the pressie? - blame Kate for that question ;-)


pss the word verification thingy has ikosz - this should be on Julie's blog (I kissed Oz, super zen)

It's still your birthday where I live! So happy, happy day (even though it's yesterday where you live). Glad you had a terrific one -- and congrats on getting moved at work with not nearly as much pain and angst as such a move might have occasioned.
