You Say It's Your Birthday?

Hey! It's my birthday too, yeah!

It doesn't happen often, but once again my birthday has fallen on a Friday the 13th. Today I am two-score and one.

Friday the 13th's have always been a sort of unofficial lucky day for me. I remember turning 13 on a Friday the 13th. My family threw me a surprise birthday that really did catch me by surprise and my dad got me a new ten-speed bike. It was great. One of the happiest memories I have.

February, particularly this week in February is a huge birthday time for some reason. It never fails that when I tell people when my birthday is, they always seem to reply, "Hey, my such-n-such's birthday is the 12th/13th/14th/15th too!" I don't know why it's such a big month for births. My guess is it that it's nine months after the previous spring. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

Not sure what's in store for me for my birthday. I think we're going to have a family party at my sister's house tomorrow. My mom's birthday is the 24th, so we may do a dual celebration. (Both of my grandmother's birthdays were the 25th of February too. See what I mean?)

Janet bought me the first four seasons of Lost on DVD and gave it to me a few days early. I was griping that the Sci Fi channel had been playing it, but they seemed to misname a few episodes and skip a few others. I was bummed because there a was a big hole in my understanding of some of the plot. At first I was annoyed that she had spent money on a TV show, but as I started watching them, I grew more and more grateful. I hate when we spend money, especially when it's on me.

You know, my birthday always makes me crave chocolate cake. I think I'm going to see if I can find some somewhere.

Happy Birthday Hobbit!
I got you a foot waxing kit. I hope you like it.
As for the holes in Lost, well, I hate to say it, but your wife wasted her money. Watch it all, and the holes are still there. They actually get bigger I think.

sompted: the act of being soaked by your own hot coffee as it flies up in the air and rains down upon you, usually including at least some of your head.

CC, don't be so darn pessimistic about everything! I really enjoy Lost. It's a fun show, it's very original, and it keeps me thinking and guessing!

Wow! My feet are so shiny now!

I'm not being pessamistic, I'm just giving you a heads up. I love the show. Even when it makes me want to burn my brain.

And what they don't tell you on the package is that after waxing, you can then use the product as a fake beard. Just heat and press. Or you can use it to enhance existing chest hair, or if you are desperate, to cover bald spots.
