HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Stop counting my candles.

Yes, yes, it's true.  Several years ago today, the Earth and I came to an agreement that she would let those Aliens drop me off and bless her with my presence.




My Earth parents are still not buying the story.  My mother insists the hours of premature labor and c-section were not imaginary.  I explained to her that my alien physiology wouldn't allow her body to carry me to full term.  And there is the difference in blood type. (XXX) No wait, that's not blood.




Anyway, wish me happy birthday.  I'll get so excited I might pee my pants...but let's hope not. 




IMPORTANT: I WILL BE OFF NEXT WEEK.  YOU WILL NOT SEE ME AT ALL.  I WILL NOT BE POSTING.  I'M TAKING THE WHOLE WEEK AWAY FROM HERE AND WORK TO CELEBRATE MY BIRTHDAY.  I WILL MISS YOU ALL. 





REASONS TO EMAIL ME:

1. You're reading my book. (Please do email me.)
2. I'm reading your book.  (Ditto)
3. You like me.  (Sure.)
4. Something incredibly cool is happening and I need to know right away.  (Please do.)
5. You heard a funny joke or feel like chatting and can't stand another day without me.  (Ok,if you really must...)
6. My bloggerly presence makes you horny.  (Not a good idea.  Hubs wouldn't like it.)  

SERIOUSLY, IF BY SOME CHANCE YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTACT ME, SEND ME AN EMAIL.  I LOVE EMAILS AND DO CHECK MY PHONE ON A REGULAR BASIS.


                                   Have a fantastic week!

  39. Happy Birthday!!

    I know that may not mean so much to you coming from a completely random stranger on the internet, but just know that some completely random stranger on the internet took 5 minutes of her life just to wish you, another completely random stranger on the internet, a happy birthday.

    Great birthday post btw <3

  40. Does having a birthday have something to do with your last post?
    Hummmmmm, does seem a bit connected. Some people do react in a bitchy manner to upcoming birthdays. Not me, I am at the age that I collect them like trophies............ have a wonderful lycanthropy free week!
