It's Almost Time!

Ah, we once again gather to anticipate the anniversary of crappy things happening on my birthday. Oh boy! I can't wait to find out how it's going to suck this year!

I, too, have experienced bad birthday karma although not to the same degree as you have.

On my 19th birthday, I awoke still as a board from a tentanus shot I had received the day before. (I had shot a staple into my big toe with a pneumatic staple gun at work and had to drive myself to the ER.) I remember that I literally crawled to the phone, called into work and verbally submitted my resignation. That day I also made the decision to run away from home and join the circus.

I read your account of your birth. I loved your description of it. You definitely have a gift with words.

Have a happy birthday.

January babies have all the fun. I'm January 22...but I've never had such bad birthday Karma as you.

I hope you have a happy, and bad karma-free birthday tomorrow, MB.

The World is Ending!!!! Oh nooooo...the World is Ending! Tomorrow's the 15th of January...Blonde Champagne's birthday...run for your lives. I'm gonna go out and spend all my money on stippers, whores and drugs. Oh wait that's Al Qaeda. I'm Irish Catholic. I'll say the Rosary, go to church and not actually Read the Bible...while drinking some nasty Guinness of course (Eating some Host and drinking the cleansing blood of Christ just isn't giving me the same buzz ever since I turned 14. I actually think they're using a cheap Zinfandel for the blood of our Lord and Saviour).
Here's to a few more years of hoping the world doesn't self destruct on your birthday...Salut.

My birthday reigns as the day my parents put their beloved Lab to sleep.

My birthday is January 17th, a day which has the Northridge Earthquake and the birth of Jim Carrey to its shame. I certainly empathize.

Raising my hot chocolate in a toast to you with best wishes for a wonderful day today. Happy Birthday!

My birthday is on St. Patrick's Day (which is amusing since I am Irish, my skin is a less-than-white greenish-blue hue, was baptized Catholic and raised with a good old fashioned sense of Catholic guilt, and the not-so-fresh aroma of stale bear). So, of course I have no recollection of any events that have occurred on my birthday since the age of well....21 of course (I'm thirty, but I've been 21 for 14 years). Sorry for all my typing errors...my brain cells have had a lot of time & chemical help to erode at this excellerated velocity. God gave the Irish beer to keep them from taking over the world after all. I'm doing my part. Happy birthday. Here's to getting perfectly shit-faced on your big day...cheers.

Hey, Happy Birthday :).
Mine's the 13th of January ... received a most ticklish card from a friend in Michigan saying, "Aren't you just revelling in the irony of YOUR birthday being on Black Friday?" Yes, yes I am, moohahahaaaaaaaaa ;). I turned 13, in a delightfully and equally ironic fashion on Black Friday many moons ago, and it's all been downhill from there ever since ;).
Have a good one :).

birthdays are for wimps. i have the worst birthday ever: december 30th. that means every christmas present from relatives included a card that said " for christmas and your birthday too," not that it ever equaled two presents like my sisters got. throughout elementary school, i never ONCE has the birthday party where mom brought cupcakes, 'cause we were on christmas holiday (this tells you how old i am; it was before "winter break")..and in college, every one of my friends was off skiiing in colorado or some such shit...and even when i had friends close by, they all said the exact same thing. "we're going out tomorrow night for new year's eve and we'll celebrate then!" i'm well into shirley maclaine age, and i've never ONCE had a birthday party that didn't include only immediate family members buying me presents they bought on christmas clearance...
