Today is my birthday

I am not feeling greatly celebratory but I have friends who are not prepared to accept that. My college room mate is taking me out for a big lunch. Other people have been ringing me at work to send their best wishes and I have gotten a number of emails. Of course, I did have to remind my father when we spoke this morning to wish me a happy birthday. That is simply par for the course from the man who bought my mother a St. Patrick's Day card for Valentine's Day one year.

I am going to take myself off after lunch and buy myself a happy birthday tie and a very nice half bottle of something yummy to drink on the train on the way home tonight.

Happy birthday and many happy returns.

Somebody asked me last year how it felt to be another year older. My reply: "I can't be 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure it beats the alternative".

Even if you're not feeling all party-ish, I'm going to wish you a happy birthday all the same - 'cause it's the thought that counts, not the party. :) Good luck and enjoy that something yummy.
