Happy birthday indeed! Just to break up the monotony, how about I offer you hand-cranked ice cream instead of a birthday cake?

Lori's not replying. She must hate us. Alas! And after this thoughtful thread on her behalf!

12-30-2006, 05:31 AM
Happy Happy Birthday Lori!

Many more to you,


12-30-2006, 05:46 AM
Lori's not replying. She must hate us. Alas! And after this thoughtful thread on her behalf!That's because she's busy trying to convince Mac not to ban you. :roll:

That's because she's busy trying to convince Mac not to ban you. :roll:

really? Oh. that's sweet to do, on her birthday. But in reality, I suspect she's off, pardying hardy with the army of Llamas. They can be such animals!

12-30-2006, 06:06 AM
Hate you guys? Not at all. I thought I'd responded already and had planned to come back and respond again.

Everyone's birthday wishes and greetings are a wonderful warm fuzzy.

Let's see, how have I spent my day? I'm getting ready to start what should be my last semester of grad school. My mother had been offering to let me move into her back bedroom for several months and back in November, I took her up on that.

So, today, my birthday, I started the day by yelling at her.

That's not quite as bad as it sounds.

She never uses her living room, so she let me have it for my office. At 2AM, I was at my desk, chatting with Mac, working on the rewrite of my novel, and jamming to tunes on my Christmas iPod. I heard my mother get up. Her normal routine is to trudge into the kitchen, start her coffeepot, and then scoot back to the bathroom to shower while the coffee brews. This morning, instead of trudging into kitchen, she trudged her into the living room to wish me a happy birthday. I didn't hear her until she spoke. As I was clinging to the ceiling, I yelled, "Don't Do That!"

She looked at me, hanging upside down above her, repeated, "Happy Birthday," and trudged back out.

My mother is difficult to phase.

Later, after coffee, after I'd climbed back down and put the iPod away, she better expressed her amusement at my reaction.

I stayed up until 5AM, then went to bed. I decided not to set the alarm and got up a little after 12. Woke up. Had a leisurely early afternoon. Ate leftover Christmas Eve meatballs with Mac&Cheese, was tormented by e-mail by some math, science, and engineering geek-friends. They were making different equations where the answer was my age and I had to figure out what the variables were. As I said, they're geeks. Or nerds. Sorry. Nerds.

Two nerds enter, One nerd leaves.
Two nerds enter, One nerd leaves.

This was the recurring chant one of them had going on.

While being tormented, I also popped onto AW and read some of the nice messages people had left for me.

After finally showering and getting dressed, I ran to the mailbox place to check my mail. My brother called while I was driving so he and my nephew could wish me a happy birthday. My nephew made me two new bookmarks for my birthday. They're very handy and cute.

My brother is starting to find Spongebob Squarepants funny. This disturbs him.

Home again. Out to dinner. Then back home for cake and ice cream. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing and peanut butter ice cream with peanut butter cups and fudge swirls.

Then back hear to read wonderful postings from you guys and work on the rewrite a bit more. Oh, I'll probably break to download more stuff from iTunes for the iPod. One friend gifted me some of her favorite songs earlier today and Medievalist gave me an iTunes gift certificate so I can choose a few things on my own.

Medievalist does not believe I own enough music. I don't think she believes anyone owns enough music.

Thanks again for helping give me a relaxing birthday. I really do appreciate the warm wishes. Threads like this are part of what makes AW a special place.

7 dash 2. I'll take that as another one of your constant insults :D at my manly baconhood, but it won't hurt me 'cause I'm on vacation for a while.

Hahhahaa....signing off now....

Yay, it's your birthday!

Exploding high five!

No, Birol! I said 'exploding,' not 'spontaneous combustion'!

Um, broom and glue in 'Office Party'...

...excellent, my plan to become Queen of the Rep Points by only posting on birthday party threads continues unabated...


12-30-2006, 01:43 PM
And many happy returns!

Sorry for the lateness, but Happy Birthday!
