25 and counting

Back to work today...for a three day week:-) Such a tough life these days! Next week is a short week, too (but that is surgery-related, so don't get too jealous). The weekend was awesome, partly because it was my birthday:-D Twenty-five years sounds like a long time, and I think leads to some natural introspection. Nothing new there, I am kind of an introspective person sometimes.

Truth be told, it was a very happy birthday. I am basically happy with who I am and what I have done and what I continue to do, and there isn't a lot that I would change if given the chance. So "sit and take stock" moments are not all that scary, especially when I am surrounded by so many of my favorite people:-)

I am not real sure who wins the "first person to tell me Happy Birthday" prize. Which is good, because I don't really know what the prize was...I have a picture of Smoking Hot Roommate's boobs, that could have been a good one...hee hee. The Boy's Twin Sister was technically the winner, but since I had already talked to her that day, she doesn't count. Scotty was the first blog-person to say so, but he got the date wrong by a day. Brandy was the first one to correctly identify the day, but she said so a day late...so I don't know that we had an actual winner.

The rest of you, however, are clearly losers!!! (I'm kidding, of course:-))

Except for Nicole D., who gets a super-special shout out for being the most observant reader of all. She correctly guessed what my gossip was gonna be (or, at least she got really close) based on a little note I wrote a long while back. BFFb (who The Boy has long accepted will always be my favorite boy in the world) and The Mouth (one of my best friends from college, who now lives in Los Angeles) have always had kind of an electricity between them. As well they should...they would be great together. But, they obviously never really spent a ton of time together, and even when they got the chance, one of them always had some kind of a complication.

But there was always a really clear chemistry, and they did hook up a couple of times, but nothing ever really serious. However, I knew they were both coming out for a couple of days, both are totally and completely single, and I was just guessing that something might happen. And it did:-) I'm so good! I really wish they lived closer together ( and closer to me!) because I think they would make a great pair. But alas...ships passing in the night... [Nicole had guessed him and The Body, which was a really good guess]

Best "blog-related birthday gift" came from Smoking Hot Roommate, and went right onto the back window of my car. I got some other gifts, but the best gift was just having most of my special people around me for the whole weekend for some good times. I also got a couple nice phone call wishes, including one very early in the morning from Tinkerbelle:-) That was a nice way to start the day!

And now the wedding excitement has begun! Big Sis is cooler than ice cream, but even she is starting to get a little bit excited. I will give some more details tomorrow, but basically the wedding is at their beach house, and lots of family is coming in this week to spend a couple days. So it is part family reunion, part wedding, part big fat beach party. Munchkin is part of the welcome committee, so she is down there all week, breaking the hearts of more little boys...lol.

Me, well, I gotta get a little bit or work done, I suppose. Contrary to popular belief, I do not get paid simply to look cute. Too bad...

Glad you had a wonderful birthday! Thanks for the shout-out! Now that BFFboy and The Mouth have had a little more time together to develop the chemistry, anything can happen...no one knows where life will take us, as I am sure you can vouch for AM, ;). I am looking forward to hearing about the wedding.

Scotty said...

I clearly won. Look at it this way... I just looked, and I posted at like 1:30am your time. Which means... that when I posted it was 10:30pm my time... so it was still your birthday! :)

Scotty said...

Wait, now I am not even sure what I am talking about.

Ally said...

Happy Birthday (and short work week)!! 25 does seem like a bigger birthday deal than a normal birthday, so I'm glad you had a good one (and sorry I missed the exact day and all).

e.b. said...

well happy freaking birthday!

Nicole - First I need to get them both into the same time zone...he lives in Chicago, her in LA. And I really want them both to move here...lol.

Scotty - We checked with the judges, and while we appreciate the effort and the rationale, the panel has rejected your petition. But maybe, if you are nice, we will send you a picture of like one boob. (SHR is gonna kill me for this, btw.)

Ally - Thanks:-) Now every time I can see a "25 year retrospective", I can know I was alive when it happened. I feel old.

E.B. - We can swear around here:-) No need to clean it up.

Happy (belated) Birthday! You are now quarter of a century old...

And I want to see SHR's boobs too...

I missed the CNN breaking news about your two best friends bumpin' uglies. Clearly, they under-estimate the gravity of the situation!

brandy said...

Ahhh hell. I wish I would have been a little more on the ball. I knew it was the 22nd (we had discussed this before since MY birthday is also on the 22nd), I was just slow typing it up. Either way, I'm glad it was a great day!!

Michelle said...

I've been browsing around your blog, and I absolutely love it! You're great, I'm quite excited that I have another good blog to read! :)

Happy belated birthday! Enjoy 25... it's a good year (or so everyone says). I've got another six weeks before I make my final decision on 25.
