Birthdays

I'm not a big birthday celebrator type, but this year is a bit different. For one thing, some of you wished me a happy birthday, so I was reminded that today is, indeed, my birthday. :-P My initial reaction was some near kin of annoyance and I wished I had thought to change it temporarily a couple of days ago. Of course, since that is an odd reaction even for a curmudgeonly fellow, I started wondering why I felt that way. I think it is because I have stuff I need to get done that I haven't been doing. My birthday reminds me of that in a way that New Years never seems to do.

Well, in thinking about it, of course, I realized that it was crazy to be bothered by it. I should either do the things or officially decide I would rather be doing something else. I'm sticking with the former. So, I thank those if you who reminded me of my birthday. It has basically turned into a reminder that I need to kick some ass, and that is a handy thing to have!

The careening car you posted about is my current image of a thunderbolt-from-the-blue death. I'm also inclined to put that off til tomorrow, too.

My not knowing today is my birthday can't be taken as authoritative. After all, I didn't know today-was-my-birthday-yesterday until cluebyfour posted about it.

Just thinking about what a crazy world we'd have in such a case makes me smile. ;-)

Thanks!

if I had more time, I´d see what sluggy reference would be appropriate. I´m sure it´d be better than my meagre "happy birthday, Scrooge" ;)

"Stay good, tinyfellow! Stay good!"

Birthday comics are easy since they do one every year on August 25th for the comic itself...

BTW, this candy heart should have occurred to me earlier, but better late than never.

That feeling really gets to you when you're birthday is on New Years Eve :-P
I love that icon by the way ^.^ Mr. Bennet rocks, my favorite P&P character.

Coincidentally, I usu list 1/1 as my birthday whenever I need to enter one on some online thing...

It's a great pic, too, what with the gleam in his eye and all. I started using it when it occurred to me that his style of finding fun is pretty much the mode I usually post in. To paraphrase that common justification, "If it keeps even one person from getting offended at some innocent jape, it will be worth it." ;-)
