A few (okay, two) of my MSN friends have encouraged me to use this blog thingy more often. So I’ll copy & paste my GJ entry (since it’s friend’s only) about my birthday, yesterday.
Subject: Oh, happy day!
Entry: I had a fantabulous day!
My mom came up around 8am and was the first voice I heard. She wished me a happy birthday and said to get ready to go, soon. We went to the cemetery to put flowers on the graves for Easter. I took lotsa photos. It was chilly. Got gas at BJ’s, first. Left the cemetery, went to Wal-Mart and mom let me get my ears pierced (instead of in NY) for the fourth time. She walked around in crafts while I had it done (both at the same time, this time) and she said I wouldn’t believe her, but when I was getting it done, she had a pain in her ear, where her earring is, enough for her to put her finger there when she felt it. Weird.
We went to K-Mart, I got food, went home and she gave me my ring (10k white gold with 8 hearts and a tiny diamond in each heart). She gave me a pretty card with a poem/story about Daughters on a little card that comes off the actual card. She wrote a nice note, inside. I opened the card from my cousin, the one from my gram, got a vegetarian cook book from my cousin and a Frasier episode guide book from her, went outside while mom weeded in the yard and I noticed one of the diamonds was missing from my ring. She called to make sure they had another (only one white and one gold one left) and they held it for us. We went back to K-Mart (a couple hours later) to exchange it, so I took more photos of the new one and all. There were Easter bunnies at K-Mart and mom said some little kid said that’s not the real Easter bunny cos that one has a zipper on the back of him, lmao!
I got more food, we stopped at McD’s and mom got food and I got a soda. Saw a huge stretch limo across the street at dunkin’ donuts. Mom said it was Jay Leno, lol!
While in the yard, I opened my card from my friend Katie (fuzzy monkey card) and my package from Mel (thanks!) with lotsa cool goodies in there. Candy I can actually eat, little piggy, Soy drinkies, ear wash for Lucky, cute card, lil’ hat.
Mom tolerated me all day. We played some Mahjongg on the computer in the basement. Tried to beat each others’ times. She watched my Mulan DVD that I got for my birthday, she gave me my clean, ironed Let It Be and younger Beatles shirts and my two Bob Ross, Happy Trees shirts. We just recently had cake and ice cream, took a lot of silly photos and pretty much talked about poop puns the entire time we ewer eating, lmao! Good times!
My mom called my gram, in Florida, and I spoke to her. She sang the birthday song to me, we argued (in a nice way) about me being a vegetarian only because people came to my school and showed films (mom said it was in Health class) and said how bad animals are treated for meat and that’s why I became a veg, but I don’t even remember that, at all. I was into Paul McCartney, he kept mentioning it, I looked into it, saw videos and stuff he was involved with, and that’s why.
Some people online gave me birthday wishes and I had no idea I told anyone it was my birthday, lol! The Wal-Mart girl said I needed ID for my earrings and I didn’t have it, but luckily my mom signed for me (she didn’t think they’d have the earrings I wanted, lol) and then she ran off cos she didn’t wanna watch. The girl said I don’t look 27. The waitress at the Olive Garden (the other week) said the same thing. Mom took me there, yesterday, to eat and I didn’t get carded. Go figure.
Oh, I got a soda at BJ’s, too. Skipped one at Wal-Mart cos I still had the first one. Mom ran into a bank teller at Wal-Mart and it was funny cos she said they always joke about going there all the time and how they’ll see each other there, and this time, they did, lol! I was gonna get a watch there, but the one we saw was at Target, so mom said the earrings were instead of the watch. They had a cool Eeyore one that was like a chain bracelet and the heart watch part hooked on. Looked neat. The one at Target is like a really wide band and the watch is in the middle, with the band behind it. Different pastel colours. Blue was my fave. But I don’t wear watches that often to really need another one.
My gram gave me $20, my dad gave me $30. My mom ran me all over town the past two weeks, lol!
All in all, I had a blast!
