It’s my birthday!! One of my friends jokingly reminded me to write it all down. As if!
Well, I’m one more year closer to 30. Eek! Actually, I’m just a year away now. They say if 30 bothers you, then 40 won’t. 40′s gonna be awesome, then.
I know, I know, my older readers will say, “Oh, please, 29′s not old.” But, there will be younger readers thinking, “Like, OMG, 29? She’s like ancient.” I’m aiming for those just like me who are looking down the tunnel toward 30 and realizing that dang, that light’s bright and there’s not much tunnel left. But, really, it’s okay.
I’m not going to reminisce about my twenties yet…I’m not done with them, but I will tell any of you in position that I empathize.
Anyway, how have I spent my birthday, you wonder? Well, I’ve gotten an oil change. I gassed the car up because Texas is supposed to be hit with a nasty ice storm in the next couple of days. I’ve talked to both sets of grandparents, and that’s always fun. I’ve gotten lots of b-day wishes from friends (you guys rock!). I applied for a freelance blogging job. Oh, and I did this:
A friend posted a fun thing on Facebook today (my FB friends can find the pic and instructions on my page). Basically, you go to Wikipedia, click “random” and that’s your band title, then you go to a quotes site and pick “random” to get a quote that you take a portion of and that’s your band’s first single. Then you go to Flickr’s Creative Commons and borrow a photo, put it all together with an editor and ka-chow! It’s your imaginary album cover for your imaginary band’s imaginary first single.
Mark my words, if I ever form a band, this will be its name and first single.
What? It’s my birthday. I’ll create fake bands if I want to.
Thanks to all for the birthday wishes, if I haven’t had a chance to say thank you yet. Love you!!
