I should have written this yesterday, but yesterday was busy.
Friends, family members and beloved blog followers, I have important news. It is T-minus one month until my birthday. There are many people who wish to celebrate the anniversaries of their healthy and successful arrivals in this world in a quiet and unassuming manner. Those people are adorable, and I mean that in a slightly condescending tone (mostly in a joking tone though. Diff’rent strokes, right?). I’m all about April 22 and not because it’s Earth Day (freakin’ hippies, crampin’ my style). Last year was my golden birthday, so I threw a party where the theme was “Maggie Mello.” Oddly enough, people’s costumes consisted of a lot of very casual clothing. And at least two bike helmets.
This year, my birthday falls on Good Friday. A day of fasting and abstinence (wait, Maggie, aren’t you always…yes, but that’s not what it means in this context, my non-Catholic friends. Here, abstinence means abstaining from eating meat on certain holy days). Never fear, however, my good and caring friends. I know I’m supposed to be living simply, constrained by a tight budget, residing in what you might call an isolated location, and living at least 1,500 miles from the majority of my friends, but seriously, nothing like that will ever get in the way from me partying on (or a week after) my birthday. Not to mention there will be two special guest stars to be announced at a later date.
Less than a month to go!
Oh yeah, and as for other aspects of my life, stuff is good and stuff.
