B-Day Blues

Sigh. Tomorrow is my b-day and I've got the B-Day Blues. Yeah, it's one of those milestone b-days...ugh...I'd rather not think about it. HOWEVER, I do have lots and lots of lovely friends who insist on reminding me about the day. The reminders have already begun.

On Saturday at my art opening, Rob brought a beautiful, huge cake for everyone at the reception to share.

Last night at the Farmer's Market, the enchanting Nancy brought a faboo doughnut cake from Bob's, festooned with candles, along with some divine gifties and a hilarious card.

Much like last year, I'm taking the day off from work tomorrow to galivant around the City, get a pedicure, buy myself stuff and generally goof off. Mr. Larry is taking me to dinner tomorrow night.

Saturday, we're having dinner with Mom and my Step-Dad in Playa del Rey. Sunday I'm hosting a small get-together at our house with some of my knitastic friends for an ol' lady knit/crochet bee. We're going to work on a group baby blanket to donate to Stitches From The Heart.

Monday, Miss Rhoda is taking me out to dinner. Tuesday Joan W. is taking me to dinner. I've worked it out so I don't actually have to cook anything for almost two weeks. That's the kind of celebration I enjoy the most....shirking all cooking and cleaning duties.

Have a marvelous weekend, everyone....thanks for all the b-day wishes...I'm trying to forget! Oy!

Happy Birthday! I knew we had something else in common besides the obvious. Mine was yesterday!

How was your art opening? did you sell any more pieces?

You just keep getting better and better,

Y'know, about 3 hours after we left the opening, had dinner, and were seated in the comedy club, I turned to the Jman and said, HEY! We dinnint get none of Ellen's cake!!!

I was very bummed, and wondered how you managed that b/c I am a cake 'ho.

Ah, sweet mysteries of life.

Besides, B-days stop counting after you turn 30, so just celebrate the birth part, and forget about the numbers part.
