the birthday week has officially begun

This year, as I am getting older, I think I will give myself more than a week. The celebrating began over the weekend, and well why should it stop by next Monday? Monday, April 17th, 2006 at 2:30 a.m. (just as a reminder) I will be 32.

Thirty-two didn't have quite the ring to it as 30 or 31 did for me, but I found a way to get around the whole ridiculousness of freaking out about turning a year older. I tell everyone, and I refer to myself, as the new number for at least a month before my actual birthday. That way when the big day does roll around (April 17th) who cares? So, I'm older.
This worked great when I was 29. I didn't tell anyone or myself that whole year I was 29. I kept refering to myself as 30. Ta Dah! No big deal.

So, Saturday I went to a 1:00 baseball game. I had a few $6 beers, a $4 hot dog sat in the sun and enjoyed the game with the Mini Lloyd Dobbler. It was lovely.
I enjoyed the rest of the night talking with a new Mr. Possible and my best friend, Billy.

Sunday I went to a classical piano concert, and I had a dinner date with the new Mr. Possible. It was a great weekend, so why not start the celebrating early?
Nope, I can't think of a single reason not to!

Happy birthday week to me!

Reason why not to #1:

I've been celebrating the "birthday week" for several years now. Since I have several close friends with birthdays very close to mine, it's turned into the "birthday month."

The week of my 30th birthday, I said "why not."

When I woke up, I was 32.

Fuckin' A.
I have to check that out!

...fuckin spam

Reblooded: see, I totally disagree.
I go in with the attitude that it is the anniversary of a birthday.

Last year was the 10th anniversary of my 21st birthday.
(I remember almost as much from both)
This year will be the 10th anniversary of my 22nd. (Here's to hoping for a lot of fun but not to passing out on the toliet.

Cheers.

Will: Be patient grasshappa.
All in good time.
