woohoo~ - Ldy, the lemony, ligerish ducttaparian's Magic Treehouse of Lost Thoughts
A classy broad's life... with footnotes.
I have this thing with birthdays. We just don't get along. I always end up crying for some reason.

It's not the age thing-- heck, I'm only six, and don't plan on growing-up anytime soon. It's just that they're sad. And lonely somehow.

Well, this year, I decided to throw a party for myself, goshdarnit. However, despite my good intentions, I've been getting a little anxious-- the party's in two days, my living room's covered in spackle, I haven't finished calling everyone, nothing's decorated, and I'm totally unprepared for anything even resembling a party.

Oh, no. It's The Return of The Bad Birthday! [ominous chord]

But wait-- no! It's not even my birthday yet, and already it's better than last year's.

Office got me a card1, a cake2 and supermarket sushi.3

We ate the cake first :D (Life's short, you know?)

That guy sent a card that made me laugh, and a book that made me think.4

Bossman gave me a checkarooni for $1185

And my new CF card for my PDA came in today, even though I only ordered it Saturday!

Yup, it's a good Verynearlybirthday :)

So, even if nobody shows up to my party, the beer explodes and cops drag me off, I won't complain ;)

And-- wheee! Look what just popped into my inbox! :D

1 "You shine like a star in your own special way and add a beautiful light to this world," and everybody wrote something wonderful. And it's a pop-up card, how cool is that?!
2 Brownie cake with whipped cream, actually-- mmmmmmm
3 I thought I was coming in Friday for lunch, but, uhm, maybe not!
4 If I don't marry him, I think the rest of my office will.
5 I'm guessing it's $100 + Chai, bless his heart :)

I'm feeling all kinds of: Still think I'll stay six forever and ever
What I hear: ~Ooohoohooh, I wanna be just like you, I wanna walk like you, talk like you-ou doooo~

But if you start crying, then I'll start crying. I'll get my birthday cry in two weeks early!

Oh look... the pirate's a Jack-Ass!

I'm down with DTT, yeah, you know me!

*gasp!* I told you that? Shame on me. Thar's no pirate thar! *cough*

We shall not cry! We shall drink non-caloric fruity beverages, sing badly and party like fools!

I have an idea! I have an idea! Tell'em not to dress up. Or at all. Then when they arrive, give'em drinks and spackle knives and spackle, tell'em to strip off and have at the room! Drunken Spacklemania! Wheeeeeee!

(I'm leaving before the cleanup starts, though ;)

Mine, too :) I keep big bad voodoo daddy's rendition of it on my PDA at all times!

For emergencies, of course.

I've got a bit of a birthday curse myself, except that with the exception of my 19th, the curse has been on my friends--I have great birthdays and they have really shitty days on my birthday. It's a good thing I don't have any friends these days. ;)

Ahem. Although I have never actually posted ON your birthday, and have no clue how that date might have gone for me in the past, I think I can pretty safely say that I'm your friend :)

However, this is not an excuse to have a bad time on my birthday. jftr.
