Awww, thanks guys! That's so sweet!

Ray, I am officially blond-ER. That's what my haircolor goddess says. Not totally blonde, but definitely blondER. 4 hours, about a million highlights, super-duper treatment packs that required 40 minutes under a heat gizmo that looks like something out of a toture chamber (and a nice tip for my goddess) and viola! My wallet's $100 lighter!

This is going to be a nice birthday, even though I am 20/18 years old. The weather is glorious and hubby is in the shower getting ready to take me *somewhere*. He won't tell me where.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAROLE!!!

To a fellow Aries girl,
we're different than the rest,
The first sign of the zodiac,
so that means we're the best!

You're fun-loving, impulsive
and full of energy,
Sure hope you have a birthday
that's as super as can be!

Can I just say this? I had a rotten birthday. Yep. It's true. Rotten.

But I thank all of you for wishing me a happy birthday. That makes me smile :)

Perks
04-04-2006, 02:08 AM
Are you telling?

Carole
04-04-2006, 02:15 AM
Yep. Didn't take much arm twisting, did it?

The day started off great. We headed down into Knoxville to do something. What I didn't know at first is that he had no idea what we were off to do. I figured it out about the 4th time he asked me what I wanted to do.

I wanted to go into Barnes & Noble, but I didn't think that would be IT. I asked if he wanted to get lunch or something. He shrugged.

Long story short (before it becomes too late) is that he had no plans. He wanted me to figure out what I wanted him to do with me.

It is awful of me to be really offended by that? He put NO thought or effort into my birthday at all. I didn't want anything. All I wanted is to know that he thought about it for at least a minute and a half beforehand. He didn't. He wanted me to figure it out for him.

We ended up coming home and I cooked lunch. We watched a coupla movies. He played video games almost continually the rest of the time. If he had said, "I think it would be nice to spend the day at home" that would have been FINE. Just knowing that he thought about it in advance. Oh well. Can't have everything, right?

And Ray...your little innuendo close to the beginning of this thread? Nope. Didn't happen, either.

Heavens to Murgatroyd! The guy isn't perfect! (Thank goodness; I couldn't keep up much longer....)

Carole, that bites. I'm sorry. I think even that could be done nicely (e.g. "Here's a gift certificate for a day of whatever-you-want!"), but, well, we've saved up all your he's-so-great stories, just to show you. (They're, um, around here somewhere!)

Either way, you now have one solid gold get-out-of-jail-free card, eh? Plus the emotional high ground -- which you, of course, are too kind and noble to use to advantage. (Well, maybe just a little.)

*followed by the sound of me shutting up*

He just sent me an email. It said:

I did not mean to hurt your feelings, baby. If I did...I am sorry.

Ok, so I still swoon when he calls me baby *grin*

Plus! I get 38 birthday spankins when he gets back home this weekend! WooHoo!

Don't forget about that pinch! If pinched in the right spot - it can .....um, never mind....

Also - think of it this way, Carole. This thread just educated a lot of guys. Any guy that may have thought "What's wrong with that?" (just driving off and figuring it out as you go) will now think twice. There are gals out there that would say "Thanks, Carole" if they only knew that because of you, their significant other made plans. http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif

Ok, Ok, I'll shut up now. But don't forget that pinch...

Not to be contrary, but...

I was stood up on my 29th birthday. Second day in a new country, where I basically knew only one local. She invited me to dinner and never showed.

Not that I held a grudge or anything, he says approaching his 42nd.

It's not exclusively a guy thing.

Carole, I see what the problem is here. He's a man. We expect you guys to do all the planning. Yes...even on your birthday. We're stupid. Even more important, we think you will not like the plans we would make so we depend on you to make the plans. We would be happy driving aimlessly around the world saying, "Whatayawannado?" We are hopeless. Yeah...I'm just making excuses. But, hey, I bet whatever you would have suggested...he would have done. I'm telling you...never count on a man to make the plans. You will be looking at the wall.


And, September, we might recognize ourselves...but we won't learn from this. We will still leave the house without a plan in our empty heads the next time. And while we're driving, we will be chanting silent words into those empty heads, "Please God, for the love of God, suggest something...I'm running out of gas here!"

The mind boggles, KTC. Seriously. Either you are completelty psychic OR you just really know how all guys' minds work. Or at least my guy's mind.

I have printed this for posterity.

Soon you will see it floating around the blogosphere.
Admissions of guilt are hard to come by - so thanks.

And thanks, Carole, for letting us use your birthday thread to get this confession.

Here I am late to the party as usual and I can't even wish youa happy birthday in retrospect 'cos you didn't have one!

What's a girl to do?
Is it any comfort for you to know that apart from a "happy birthday" early inthe morning my hubby doesn't spend a thought on mine wither? Not even on a present?
OK, it's my fault. For years I've told my family not to buy me any presents or spend any money on me so I can't complain when they take me seriously! Last year my son bought me a really huge expensive Mother's Day card, which I kept; when he forgot Mother's Day this year I told him to give me last year's card, and he did! I guess he'll be giving me that card for years to come!

If mine ever did that to me, I'd have to murder him. Why? Well, my birthday is HIS birthday. And our anniversary is 2 days later. If he didn't plan SOMETHING to celebrate, I'd have to beat him about the head and neck. With a big stick.

Nonetheless, here's hoping he made up for it (or plans to). And here's me wishing you a Happy (belated) Birthday!

Rofl!

Sorry about your birthday Carole. If it s any consolation my husband hasn t been home on my birthday for 11 years. It coincides with an annual sailing race that he and his friends enter every year. I don t care, I just tell him he owes me dinner out AND and a great present. Although this year I just want a new floor or maybe some siding - or I just may cast all monetary inhibitions to the winds and tell him I want BOTH!

KTC, I demand to know the name and email address of your local chapter's Mighty Steward or Grand Vizier. I'm afraid that you are in serious violation of international codes (yes even the Canadian Orders adhere to them.)

Expect a knock on the door soon and be ready to hand your man-card over.
