For anyone who doesn't know, I love my birthday. I think my birthday is the best holiday ever. I love everything about my birthday. I love balloons and streamers and confetti and cake and presents. But even without balloons and streamers and confetti and cake and presents, my birthday would still be totally awesome. I would love my birthday even if no one else knew it was my birthday (but forgetting is different than not knowing, Mom).
Quick fact: I share my birthday with Jessica Alba, Penelope Cruz, Jay Leno, Saddam Hussein, Harper Lee, Lionel Barrymore, Frank Cavanagh, King Edward IV, and Tim Boisvert.
Here's a brief list of presents I wouldn't mind getting today:
- Big, colorful, helium-filled balloons
- Flowers that thrive in the shade
- Interesting books
- Refrigerator magnets
- A chocolate milkshake
- Picture frames
- Anything sent by mail
- Breakfast cereal that doesn't turn my milk funny colors
- Advice (in limited quantities) on which printer Christian and I should buy
- Board games
And coming later today: my birthday present to all of you. I just need to find something first. Stay tuned!
