Evaded The Grim Reaper Yet Again!
I have managed to evade The Grim Reaper for yet another year and had a very nice birthday in spite of the fact that The Bloggess still doesn't know I exist and Lisa & I didn't hang out at Teavana sipping tea and plotting how to get into the room where they keep all of the tea monkeys. Sometimes you just have to settle for spending a nice day with friends and family (not that I am, at all, complaining about having done that!)
Tomorrow I go back to work after having been off work for several days (because I like to drag out my birthday celebration... a multi-day excuse to eat cake should always take place around one's birthday!) Since there are only three work days left this week, it will be exceptionally busy.
I should try to get to bed early tonight because I have been averaging 4 hours of sleep for the past several days and it is not going to work well to try and go to work tomorrow if I can't stay awake.
I don't make resolutions at New Year's but I sometimes set some goals around my birthday (see, that gives me additional time to come up with a list of things I will probably not follow through on!) I hope to get to meet The Bloggess and/or Lisa this coming year. If I could have lunch with both of them I would probably die of happiness which would be bad because I know The Bloggess doesn't want to have to bury another body in her backyard (to clarify, she buried a pet, not a human.. well, at least, not that we know of.... but that isn't the sort of thing someone would blog about... burying humans in your yard is generally considered to be illegal).
Also, by my next birthday (assuming that the latest Doomsday prophecy predicted does not turn out to be true), I hope to have written something (a novel) worth reading. Of course, if Doomsday happens, I suppose it won't matter.
I should be around more now that my birthday has come and gone and the company has gone home and everything will return to what passes for normal. Possible changes (not in a bad way) on the horizon. But nothing I can talk about yet (no, I am not pregnant. I shudder to even THINK of that).
Have a stellar week!
