No Spring Chicken

Can anyone tell me what's different on the sidebar-o-fun today? I'll give you a hint. It's in the bio section!

Give up? It's the age-o-meter! It has officially rolled over from 27 to 28! That's right, it's my birthday today! Have you come to sing the Happy Birthday song to me? You didn't have to do that!

Well, if you insist. You'll have to sing really loud though...some of you are in other countries. Okay, go ahead. I'm listening.

Are you through? Thank you very much. You are a wonderful singer. I really appreciate it. You didn't really have to sing though. You just being here is enough.

Oh, and did I mention it was Tony's birthday too? Yes, I know! Same day, same year. Crazy huh?

Sometimes sharing a birthday is fun. Like, yesterday we just totally impulse-bought a Wii. Just out of the blue. I never would have been able to justify the cost if it had just been my birthday, but because it is both of our birthdays, we were like, "why not?". (We like to do our part to stimulate the economy...we're very selfless like that). Plus the Wii now offers Dance Dance Revolution, and that game will make you laugh until you wet yourself (everyone knows that bladder incontinence is a major birthday must).

Of course, sometimes birthday sharing backfires, because the only thing that can veto birthday power is another birthday power. Like tonight when I was going to use the birthday to blow off going to class (because who wants to sit in class on your birthday), only Tony used HIS birthday power to insist that I go to class. So basically they cancelled each other out, which makes today like any other day, so I'm going to class. A bummer, but what can I do? The birthday rulebook is very clear about these things.

Despite the birthday veto, sharing a birthday is pretty neat, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. But then, we're quirky like that.

Happy, happy belated birthday! Sorry you had to go to class. I don't know what sucks more, being a student on your birthday or the teacher (I've done both!)
