Happy Birthday, and some other stuff

Sam's birthday was today. She is now the age that my mother claims to be (26). It's a little bit odd of my mom to claim that age because I'll be 29 this summer and my younger brother will be 26 himself. Mom needs to find a new age.

I took the day off from work and made sure Sam was happy to avoid any repercussions. The kids weren't necessarily nice to her, but they did sing "Happy Birthday" a couple of times which was fun. Andi and Dylan made her birthday notes, and Dylan was even nice enough to permanently enshrine part of his note on our couch. I guess he missed the paper a little bit. Overall I think it was a good day. It will really stink going in to work tomorrow after taking all day off today. But it was worth it.

On a side note, who am I kidding, everything I put on here is a side note. Anyway, I logged onto my Google homepage this morning and saw the following quote on one of the widgets. Usually the quotes are pretty lame, but this one fits in quite nicely with my life right now...

"I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which uh..is odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words." - Ellen DeGeneres

Another completely different subject. Have you noticed how quickly society is degrading because of bluetooth headsets? Back in the day if you saw someone having a one sided conversation with someone you couldn't see, you knew they were crazy and you should avoid that person. Nowadays so many people have the headset thing that you can't spot the crazy people. How are we supposed to tell the difference between a looney and a yuppie? Honestly. We went to lunch today and I saw a couple come in and sit at a table close to us. Both of them were wearing the stupid bluetooth things. I almost went up to them to say that they didn't need bluetooth to talk to the person right across the table, but I wasn't sure that they weren't crazy.

I'm not so sure I'm happy that he jumped from talking about my birthday to talking about people who need to work out, and crazy people! It does drive me crazy too, though that in the "olden days" when you heard someone say something, they were usually being friendly, and a conversation was started. Nowadays, if you hear someone make a comment behind you, and you turn and say "what?" to them, they give you a dirty look, like you've interrupted or eavesdropped on their conversation, just as you notice their bluetooth ear thingy.

i can't believe that i was so lame as to forget your birthday. i'd like to use the old "I'm pregnant and brain cell deficient" excuse, or the one where we just haven't transferred birthdays from last years' calendar YET, but I don't know if you'd buy it. Happy belated birthday, Sami.

Don't worry about it BeckJune! I even had a reminder on the computer set up, and we forgot to call Matt. I'd say, we're even...
