Today is my birthday, a whole day to celebrate the birth of me, fabulous. Fun birthday fact for you, today is also the birthday of Charles Dickens and Ashton Kutcher and I’m only slightly less successful than them. There must be some sort of study out there to prove that means we’re soul bonded in some way, right? I bet Charles had some blowout birthdays.
One thing I don’t like is this timeline feature on Facebook, you can now view all of the ‘Happy Birthday’ posts you receive from year to year. My quick study shows that in 2011 and 2012 my popularity was stagnant at around 62 well-wishers. This year however, I am slightly flagging at only 37 ‘Happy Birthday’s’ thus far. I’m not sure if my popularity has decreased, the popularity of Facebook has decreased or it’s a combination of both of these factors, but I’m worried. For all of those cheese-dicks who wished me happy birthday over text: I hope you burn in hell.
On a serious note, I am having a lovely birthday and feel very blessed to have such special friends and family. Here’s to another year of inadequacy, poor decision making and drinking far too much wine!
