Happy birthday to meeeeeee

Woo. Happy Birthday to me. Birthday’s just aren’t very exciting anymore. Ah well. (And birthdays should never be on Mondays. That’s just plain evil.)

Nevertheless, my horoscope was pretty decent this morning, I thought…

Happy Birthday for Monday, January 9, 2006: You naturally make the right choices [why, thank you!], but at the same time, you might choose the easier path. YOu have a laissez-faire attitude this year that makes love, relationships, work and life in general far easier [nice…]. You also see the good in others [ha ha ha ha ha], and as a result, you bring out the best in people [tee hee hee hee]. Your creativity surges this year. Tackle that book or project. If you are single…[okay, skip this part]. If you are attached, you might re-create your honeymoon [all right! Another trip to London this year? Hmmm. Maybe they’re talking about our trip to Mexico in November?], while others [hi Jenny!] might add to their family. GEMINI [Ellie?] pushes you hard.

Interesting, yes?

Had a great birthday weekend. Since my birthday is on a Monday this year, I thought of the past weekend as sort of a “PMK Day Weekend.” (Get it? Sorta like MLK Day Weekend?) On Friday, I went to visit my mom in Baton Rouge. She bought me some books I wanted (South Beach cookbook, for one) and we went to dinner at Macaroni Grill. One last bread-and-pasta-and-dessert blowout before tomorrow’s SBD start. It was nice to spend time with my mom.

The next morning, she made breakfast while I lounged around in my wedding dress. One last time to wear it before we send it off to be cleaned!


Then I ran some errands and headed back to New Orleans. We went to the pub that night where I had the most delicious red velvet cake and hung out with my friends. One last alcohol blowout before tomorrow’s SBD start.

Yesterday, a bunch of friends came over and we had a massive English fry-up breakfast. No kidding, heart attacks on a plate. Bacon, English sausages, eggs, bread fried in butter, mushrooms and tomatoes. Yum. One last grease blowout before tomorrow’s SBD start. After breakfast, Polly and Teresa and I played Scene It. Fun! (I won.) Then I went grocery shopping to stock up on healthy foods in preparation for tomorrow’s SBD start.

Tonight, George and I are going to dinner and maybe a movie. I think it’s going to have to be a chick flick. It is my birthday, after all. And that way I can have one more popcorn-and-candy blowout before tomorrow’s SBD start.
