Year 2005 Day 300

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Thursday, October 27, 2005 at 11:35 am by flerly.
  • Woken up by mom’s morning birthday phone call — Well, Mom, you did wake me up because, see, since I work from home, I don’t have to get up early and get ready for work anymore. I just sort of roll out of bed and go downstairs.
  • Many happy birthday cards received. I realized today I’m plenty old enough to get those harassing your 29 again? cards, which I always used to send to the siblings, so I don’t mind so much, but it occurred to me that my brother who wrote “34?!? Wow!” on his card to me might be freaked out by me getting those. How can baby sis be THAT old? But, as I reminded the girls last night, if baby-sis being 34 shocks him, I should remind him that he has a 32-year-old daughter.
  • iTunes seems to be a steaming pile of crap, but that’s probably because I just don’t know how best to use it yet. Guess I’ll have to get used to it, though, since it seems to be necessary for use with this brand-spanking-new iPod I got for my birthday! Squee!
  • On the day I most want to goof off, work becomes busy again. That’s all right… need something to keep me occupied so I don’t spend the day perusing for iPod accessories in a new addiction fit to rival my Pfaltzgraff addiction.
  • I feel very lucky today, because it says a lot when your friends can restrain themselves from punching you in the face when you are completely innocently screwing up their very carefully planned birthday plans like an ass. I can’t believe the trouble you girls went to, just for me to end up sounding unappreciative before the event even went down. You both rock and you should know that, complain or not, secretly ever since I noticed the purchases on my wishlist I’ve been anxiously awaiting a UPS truck to deliver them to the house, and had already made places to store them in the cabinets! I think my complaining about “too much pattern” was 99% bullshit designed to ward off concerns that I might be an addict. I LOVE THE PRESENTS! Kit & Maggie, you both are too sweet to put up with me, and I love you both!
  • I also have to shout out to folks who aren’t on LJ for offering up what now amounts to three bottles of wine for use with that new set of wine glasses I just got. I’ll be a raging alcholic yet, with your continued assistance.
  • And tonight, the coup de grace present… tickets to Nine Inch Nails. Already it’s been a birthday to remember. Thanks everyone!

    Half the fun of those wine glasses is now going to be teasing you about not liking them. It seems to me this joke has the shelf like of beef jerky. =)

    Happy Birthday!

    Happy Birthday!

    Forget out iTunes – its useless junk cobbled together by moron software engineers. Use Anapod Explorer (PC) to transfer files to your iPod.
