Oh… is it my birthday? Why, I had completely forgotten…

Luckily, I had Jolene and Moses and Lis and Shannon and Earl Grey Tea (you know you’re special when a TEA celebrates your birthday) and someone who’s a little Out of (her) Mind and my fellow Goddesses and about ten zillion e-cards to remind me. Oh, and let’s not forget the wrapped present from Athena, which I opened this morning, and was THRILLED to find The Best of Friends. Athena knows the way to my heart, yes indeedy. I also opened the wrapped present from reader Laura in PA, who sent me this Sherman’s Lagoon book (LOVE me some Sherman’s Lagoon. I bet you didn’t know that about me.) I opened both the wrapped packages this morning instead of when I got them, because the rule is that I have to wait until the actual day to open presents, if they’re wrapped. Well, that’s the rule I made up for myself, anyway.

My birthday is kickin’ ass, and the day’s not half over yet!

I was awakened early this morning by the Governor of Alabama, who’s been harrassing me about wanting to change the name of the state to RobynBama, despite my insistence that he’s a nutball. I had to put my foot down, because really – if they’re going to eventually rename the country the United States of Robyn, I don’t want just a state named after me. That would be silly.

The weather gods are behaving today – it’s close to 50 right now, and I expect it’ll get even warmer. Maybe winter’s over? (Ha!)

Of course, it’s a state-wide holiday, and the people who deliver the mail are thrilled to have the day off (especially MY mailman, as you can imagine). As I told Moira the other day, the banks don’t actually shut down on my birthday, but they do spend the day printing money with my picture on it – there’s usually a brawl or two when people feel they aren’t getting as many RobDollars as they want. But y’know how it is. There’s only so much Bitchypoo to go around!

I bet y’all are wishing like hell that the day was over and I’d go back to normal, aren’t you? 🙂

Okay, that’s it for today. I’m going to go lay on the couch and watch me some Friends, and try to convince Miz Poo to snuggle with me. Thanks, y’all, for all your birthday wishes and e-cards, and everything else. You’ve helped to make my day especially special!
