|06:44 pm - Because I can. . .|
You know, I turn 25 on Friday.
Usually, I don't ask for anything. Usually, I avoid my birthday. In fact, I tend to dislike it.
But I turn 25 this year. Therefore, I have decided that celebration might be in order, what with me being a full quarter of a century old.
And what with the fact that I don't plan to celebrate another birthday until I turn 100, I thought this was as good a time as any to celebrate one.
For those interested in helping to make my birthday happy, feel free. I won't complain this year as I have in the past, promise.
I'll even link you to my Amazon.Com Wish List. You know. For convenience.
As far as why I usually don't like birthdays? I don't like people feeling the need to get me stuff. I don't mind receiving things, or having people buy me stuff, but I mind that people feel that they MUST buy me things because it's my birthday, or because I graduated, or because it's Christmas. Really, I hate all the gift giving holidays for just this reason.
So if you get me something, do it because you want to, not out of some misplaced obligation. It'll mean a lot more to me. And it'll mean a lot to me if you just don't get me anything simply because you don't want to. That's the point, after all.
What will I do to actually celebrate?
Shit, I don't know. Got any ideas?
Whatever I do, though, you'll all be invited.
Watch this journal. When I figure something out, you'll know.
Unless I get lazy and forget.

You already know that I get to spank you, I've your permission. If only I could get to Ohio on Friday!! Any way I can get a rain check for October?!
In case I'm not around a computer on Friday, happy birthday. :-)
On Friday, Mike'll turn 25
and a lot of us are glad he's alive
He might be a chaotic nut
and a parrot head, but
he's just depraved, not deprived
Best I could do, sorry. And about the only gift I can afford. LOL
I am totally up for anything (nearly) ... Party time. Want me to get together with Judi, Leesa, and Jenni to plan something? *grin*
I love buying gifts. So, you might get one from me.
If only I could be in Ohio on Friday.... Judi, Leesa & Jenni planning a gathering would be a blast! :)
Personally, I love celebrating birthdays. Mine, others, doesn't matter. Getting a year older beats the alternative & anything that serves as an excuse to get together with friends & have a good time is a fine, fine thing, I think. :) (Mine's the end of March. There will be a party this year. You can all come & feel free to crash in the living room)
I really like making gifts for people. Unfortunatly, I''m so behind on things at the moment that you wouldn't get it until you're 30.
oh man....you are 25...wow....
me in the next two months or so..I'll be celebrating my 11th anniversary of turnig 21...grin...
Oh oh..you must go to the strip club...share your happiness with the dancers...and well if you girlfriend wants to go to...then share the vuluptousness with her too....should make a fine good time. My hubbie treated me once..and I will never forget it....but then that is another story...grin
Do you like chocolate?
Really, I'm just curious. I'm not up to anything ^.^
I like white chocolate, but really dislike most other chocolates.
Vanilla is the name of my game. . . :)
Who would have guessed that, huh?

Ah, turning 25. I dimly remember doing that....
I'd be happy to help you celebrate, if I'm free. It's kind of a busy weekend. I am definitely planning to go to the rite on Sunday, though!!

with age comes bitchiness
And I'm supposed to help you celebrate... um, the fact that you're NOT less than half my age? That you should now move from the ridiculously high 18-25 age/male bracket for auto insurance? (You do know that is the last milemarker you get to celebrate until you qualify for a Golden Buckeye Card at age 50, don't you?) That from here on out you lie about your age by pretending to be younger, rather than older than you really are? That you haven't yet been devoured by one or another entities of chaos despite your overt attempts to do so?
Hmmm... my choices currently are that I could (A) attempt to kidnap our SD and haul him off to a strip joint [shudder]; or (B) go have free food and drinks at the firm's annual golf outing like I've been planning for weeks. [yawn]
Let's just hope someone comes up with option (C) before tomorrow evening...

Re: with age comes bitchiness
Gee, thanks. Now when February comes around I can joyously lie about being younger.
Well, I've been told I look younger than 24, so I guess I'm not worried. My mom could pass for 45 and she's 52.
As for celebratin' stuff ... Ehm, I can't think of anything. I'm not much good for that ... All I can think of is Hound Dogs and Outland.
Damn. Well, I found out that my uncle from North Carolina, who I haven't seen in, like, 5 years, is in PA and is only going to be there through tomorrow night. So I'll be in PA visiting. I'm happy I'll get to see my uncle, but sad I'll miss your b-day. :*(. I'll give you a call when I get back, though. I'll take you to Danny's Gold Fox. The girls will show you a great time. :)
But I heard there was only one hot one there, and she's taking a break. . .
:grins: True, that. But there are some other girls there who are almost as hot. I'll see that they treat you well. ;)
happy birthday, you. (oughtn't you be doused in mass amounts of glitter as part of the traditional birthday festivities? i think yes.)
it's strange... when i got up this morning, i found schmendrick perched on my desk, browsing some amazon wishlist with one of my credit cards under his paw. when he saw me coming, though, he quickly tabbed back to some kitty porn site, so i didn't get a good look at whatever it was he'd had up before. sheesh. cats these days.
