“White rabbit”… as apparently they say…


Birthday Self Portrait: 34
Originally uploaded by Ampersand Photography.

~ Seems here at the office yesterday they forgot it was my birthday [honestly, I didn’t notice]. They all feel disproportionately [though I suspect minorly insincerely] terrible about it. I decided not to milk it. I’m not sure what I’d even milk it for. We’re going out for lunch today. Can’t miss out on free lunch because I “wasn’t vocal enough” yesterday. I think they were more in a panic that they almost missed free lunch. Offices revolve around sacks of chocolate and free lunches.

~ The Sun is shining. I feel like I should run out and soak in a few rays of vitamin D. This year I’m beginning to wonder if I don’t get a touch of the SAD after all. This could be a problem since I dislike the Sun and avoid its invisible tentacles of UV death at all costs. I suppose it’s not worth relative eternal youth to have seasonal depression twelve months of the year. Time to start wrinkling. I’m getting to the age where a little of the Clint Eastwood leather on the cheeks wouldn’t be a bad thing.

~ Dinner with the parents was nice and not half as awkward as I feared. You can chit-chat about snow and storm damage for over an hour. My dad really enjoyed his ribs. And the half-litre of very sherry-like merlot my mom and I shared [I had at least two-thirds of it] got me kind of lit. More lit than the tea lights that kept going out and my mom kept stealing new ones from other tables.

~ I suspect the Urbane Decay covers are printed and waiting for me at Impact. I haven’t even checked due to the snow and I guess because we’re going out for lunch, I won’t be able to pick them up until monday. I also wanted to go to the post office and mail something today. But I guess that’ll have to wait too.

~ Crap. It’s the first and I forgot to pay rent. Again.

    Out of towners get special dispensation. Except for Finx. Whose birthday wishes are noticeably lacking.

    Invisible tentacles of UV death would be a good name for a Barfburn song.

      That is, I have to say, an especially stupendous photo.

      You know, your birthday was the first of the “new year” (and by that I mean the “new school year” which I am used to revolving around) and I was, initially, quite sad that I was beginning “year one” of NOT baking cakes for Navigator birthdays.

      That’s where the cupcake came in.

    The virtual cupcake was better than any physical cake. And not just because I’m avoiding eating everything that makes cakes good.

    happy birthday

    the computer clock here says 12/3, but it’s 4:48 in the morning as I’d just came home from work. Noticibly much belated birthday greeting but nonetheless, have a good one.

    See, I never made the cakes so I always forgot when the actual birthdays are. But very very happy birthday to you! šŸ™‚
