Yay birthdays

I am nice and pleasant and whatever, but I’d be the first to say that not many people care for me all that much. I’m a good acquaintance, but it ends there.

It isn’t true.

There are people in this world – a good many of them – who think that I am awesome.

It is 10:30 in the morning on October 2, 2008. My birthday.

-Anna left me a birthday present outside of my bedroom door.
-My dad sent me a text message wishing me happy birthday.
-My coworker/nemesis (it’s a long story – he is a pain in my ass but I love him anyway) bumbled into my office telling me what a wonderful day it was.
-My darling coworker brought me a Tim Horton’s gift card and a few funny, inside-joke magnets. AND she made me a cake.
-PLUS she and another coworker are taking me to lunch.
-Colleen called with birthday wishes.
-My mom called me to tell me happy birthday.
-Meg emailed me from work.
-Ashley sent me silly birthday text messages.
-I got two happy birthday emails from coworkers.
-Lucy called to tell me happy birthday. (And to say that Chet sends his birthday wishes, too.)
-My mom called me back to tell me that today is also Kelly Ripa’s birthday.
-Our marketing department gifted me with one (1) Los Angeles Kings baseball hat.

The day – so far – has been lovely. A nice reminder that I am loved. That’s the best part about birthdays.
