It's my birthday!

Today is my birthday and I wish that I were not at work!

I am listening to the new Lily Allen album and wishing that we were best friends. I love her. I just can't stop. Everything she sings, I am like, "man, YES!" I love the way she describes being in love: that it's all staying in bed and playing video games and eating Chinese food and making fun of each other and accidentally calling me baby. I don't know. I just love her. I read her entire Wikipedia entry today and want to be her best friend.

Except that I already have a pretty awesome best friend: Michelle took me out to lunch today and we ate sandwiches in a dark dining room near a fireplace, and talked about . . . well, what ladies talk about. Michelle, we should do that more often. I love Michelle.

Also awesome today: my parents sent me flowers. When I went out to warm up my car this morning, Andrew had scraped the ice off of my windshield and was attempting to write "Happy Birthday" on my side window, because he is cute and thoughtful. Chris is cooking steak for me tonight, and he bought me a genuine work of art for me for my birthday. It is a painting of a grilled cheese sandwich.

Today is sort of . . . mild, weather-wise. For a string of four or five years (back in the late nineties/early aughts) the weather was unseasonably warm on my birthday each year. One of those years I took a physics exam whilst wearing a tiara. That stopped for a while (the unseasonably warm weather I mean -- but I guess the tiara-wearing stopped as well, and I haven't taken a physics test in years), but maybe this is a new beginning.

Happy my birthday, everyone! I love everybody! Life is great!

Thanks! I will be sure to take a picture once it's in my possession; at present it's still hanging in a gallery. Maybe I'll leave it there until the end of the exhibition, and ask them to post a tiny sign that says "From the Collection of Kerry Washu."

Happy your birthday to you, too! I have been thinking that your birthday was coming up for a while but then I woke up this morning nervous that it was yesterday but it's not!

Happy Birthday, and more than that, the gratitude of a thankful nation for using the conditional subjunctive accurately! For that, among many other reasons, you are one in a million.

The subjunctive mood is one of my LiveJournal interests!

Happy Birthday Kerry! If only I had gotten up 5 minutes earlier, I would have completed my message.

Thanks Andrew! Yes, if only. S'okay though, it's the thought that counts, and that was a great way to begin my birthday!

I think I like Lilly Allen too. Maybe. I like that one song... "The Fear".

That one's pretty good! I like some even more, though. You should check out her first album, the songs are a little more "fun" on that one for the most part.
