Happy Birthday to Me!

I usually meet this day with dread. It's never really been a great day for me growing up, but I do have some good memories:

I think, for my 8th birthday, my mom let me make my own birthday cake (or at least frost it by myself, I don't remember the actual baking). I remember making designs in the frosting with the butter knife. I think I drew an 8 in the frosting.

My 16th birthday was bitter-sweet. We had just moved away from home, but I got to go back to visit my friends for my birthday. We ended up at a rodeo, sponsored by Wrangler, in Billings Montana. Can I just say... Wrangler Butts Drive Me Nuts!!! (ok... I got it out of my system). I think my friend and I spent the whole night watching the gorgeous, tall, lanky cowboys walk around in front of us... or at least away from us... lol...

My 21st birthday ended with me not getting carded... despite my numerous attempts... bummer...

Now, I am 28. This one is OK, so far. I like my job. My office is taking me out to lunch. My husband is far away, but at least he has a job, so I'm thankful for that. I will probably go get a pie or some ice-cream to eat (probably for dinner)... I mean, it's my b-day. I can have ice-cream for dinner if I want (right, Mom?)

Now, you can enjoy a video I found last night. It combines 2 of my favorite things. A "Weird Al" song and Full Metal Alchemist. Happy Birthday to Me :)

You can eat ice cream for dinner even if it's NOT your birthday. Dad can tell what kind of day I've had when I bring home banana splits for dinner. Hey - there's fruit and dairy so they must be good for you!! That's my story & I'm stickin' to it! Happy Birthday!

"Happy Birthday to you". I must say that's the strangest Happy Birthday video I ever seen.

Sorry I didn't call on your birthday. I was in DC all last week working my butt off and with the time differential by the time you got home from work I would already be in bed snoring. Hope it was a happy one.

Love,
Dad
