You say it's your birthday?

Well, it's my birthday too, yeah!

I think I'm the only woman in America that loves her birthday. I have to admit part of it is the me-me-me quality of the day. As I get older, though, the celebration of life factor is part of it as well. I got to have another year to play around on Earth, and God willing, I'll have lots more. It probably doesn't hurt that I look younger than 33, too. :)

Today I'm running on the treadmill, maybe going out for breakfast, window shopping, then heading to Biaggi's for dinner. I've been craving butternut squash ravioli for a while, so I'm having that and foccaccia and wine and perhaps some chocolate cake.

Tomorrow at work we're celebrating me and another co-worker's birthday with Papa Del's pizza, cookies, and german chocolate cake. For those who haven't had it, Chicago-style pizza is like eating a loaf of chewy/crispy bread loaded with cheese and a gallon of tomato sauce. It's heavenly. And then I'll be going to the gym tomorrow night after work, no excuses.

Happy Birthday, Kelly. Glad you enjoy it, and aren't hung up on that "I'm a year older," thing. In reality, you're only a day older than you were before, and that's not as hard to cope with. In any case, time is simply a construct we linear beings use to cope with the processes of a universe we can't really understand. With that in mind, there's no reason to put too much stock in it.

I hope this coming year is filled with happiness and success for you. Good job on the exercise bit, too!

Y: Thanks, dude. I'm still full of food and good cheer ...

Bridget: Thanks! Bet you miss Papa Del's.

Patrick: Dude, that's deep. I like it. I'll have to pull that out when the ladies at work start whining about how old they are.
