It's Mah Birfday (again)!

Contrary to what some people believe (yes, Janey, I AM looking at you!), today is my 59th birfday.  It was Labor Day 1954; my egg donor labored and gave birth to me at 10:30a, 6.5 pounds.  Oy, WTF happened?  :)

So what am I doing to celebrate?

Well, I took today and Monday off work; 4 day weekend, bitches!  Besides, I AM worth it! :)

I share my birfday with Jane Curtin, Pippa Middleton, and Roger Waters.  Jane and Roger are older than I.  Pippa is only 30 (only).

My to-do list looks like this:

car state inspection
laundry
dishes
vacuuming
bank
write checks
get 3 more estimates for some yard work
post office
knitting
baseball on the radio (even though we are having a losing season...only 22 more games to go before I hibernate til next February!)
reading
haircut
BBQ on Sunday
misc. bullshit

Already had a nice pedi (courtesy of my MIL) and BIL gave me an Amazon gift card (bought new cordless phone set for living room and upstairs bedroom).

Spouse gave me a book on Marian Anderson, and the cat girls gave me a CD of Oscar Levant playing my fave Gershwin piano pieces.  High culture, I haz it! :)

At some point today, spouse will take me out for cock-a-tails (a nod to the mistress) and dinner.

Wish we could get away someplace, but no money stops us.

ETA: so we had lunch and cock-a-tails at Bacco.  A cosmo and a shot of limoncello for drinky-poos.  And chocolate gelato for dessert.

So THIS year is quiet...but NEXT YEAR when I am officially 60...there MUST be a party to end all parties!  Who's with me?

    1. undies are overrated; I haven't worn any since 1977! MWAH to you, sweetie!

  2. YOur to-do list looks like mine of the past few years. Chuck all that and treat yourself to something different. If you weather today is as beautiful as ours, plan something outdoors. Lunch at a cafe, or photo expedition in some lovely natural area.

    In any event, make it a memorable one. Cheers!

  8. Oh, Anne Marie (you surely deserve your full nomenclature on this day above all!) - VERY many happy returns to you.
    I am doubly shamed because not only did you tell me when your special day is - and prompted by my very own asking! - but I DID put it on my list, which I've unusually and unaccountably forgotten to consult for several days.
    Don't forgive me 'cos I don't deserve it.
    If I survive until next year (no, there's nothing 'special' that you don't know) and, heaven forbid, were I to forget yet again, I'd deserve to be cast adrift alone for the remainder of my tenure on earth.

    But hang on! This must be about YOU.
    Do enjoy your cocktails. (Have just one more before the 'stop' message starts flashing red.)
    Then you can get on with your 'fun list'. What a hoot it all sounds. Never a dull moment!
    I'm a-gonna dedicate my next twirl on the carpet to you - which might even extend to doing a 'twerk'!

    I send you b'day kisses to be received wherever you want 'em - well, within reason of course.
