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.
