It's Good to be Loved

Oh, I got my birthday groove on last night. You know how it is, you’ve had two-past-your-limit drinks and everything just seems so damn funny. Then you wake up the next day and wonder what the hell you spent so much time laughing about. Yeah, that was my birthday.

We had so much fun. There was a great little partner-group of two guys with acoustic electric guitars playing obscure and not-often-heard songs. I cut a rug to “Feel Like Making Love” with my new almost-birthday buddy named Paul (cute, single, my age AND employed!) Nothing much developed between us, however, because he said something really strange on the dance floor. And then he left. C’est ca!

Not to be discouraged, Jamie and I danced to a quite a few songs, totally ruling the dance floor. At one point I did a ninja move on her (in a skirt no less!) and landed a rear high kick right in her tum-tum. Luckily, her legs were too short, and her foot couldn’t reach my ass. Otherwise I’d be skewered on the end of her elf boot. Later she made fun of me by making faces and I caught a totally Rosie O’Donnell moment on film. Mom and I squealed we laughed so hard. Mom, you gotta post those pics. We need to share the wealth!

All in all, it was probably one of the best birthdays I’ve had in a quite a few years, which honestly surprised me. I would not have picked this year as a good birthday year, that’s for sure! But I got three singing Happy Birthdays on my voicemail, two calls from my daughters, a huge gift bag from my co-workers and dinner plus drinks from my mom and sister. And several really nice cards. Which all adds up to one very big thing: it truly is good to be loved. Thank you, everyone, for not letting me forget that. You took what could have been a very gloomy and sad day and made it really, really special!

Hey, who the "F" needs a special man in their life when they have family and friends like this, I’d like to know!

As a person whose birthday is 9 days before xmas, I can relate to both the dread of holiday blues revelers and the relief when people actually come through!

PLEASE leave the bad pics in the death grave where all digital deletions go. PLEASE. There are about 4 where I look like a cow - speaking of which I had the WEIRDEST dream last night. OMG, I've got to go look it up online to find out what it meant. It's so strange, I don't even know which effing symbol I should look up. All of which I pulled right out of my...never mind. Can't share.

Im so angry, Im so at ease said...

Happy birthday!!!!(Iknow its abit late, but then I was hardly alive at the big event:)

ISA,ISE...you wouldn't be implying that I'm OLD now, would you? Cuz I'm not.

Being the designated driver didn't hurt my sense of humor one bit...you haven't lived until you watch bunnyjo and shortensweet turn on their charm in a room full of spectators...a few more highlights were shopping, the first Yeager Bomb ( I know I am not spelling that right ) and the bar owner fawning over us all night long, because, as Jamie said, "We were attractive, well-dressed, decent, we spent good money,etc..." and BTW he asked us to come back not once but several times! Yes, Laura, we do love you, that is what we have been trying to tell you all along...now if someone out there didn't get a chance to tell Laura how much they care about her on the occasion of her birthday, the tail-lights on her car are not working right and that could be dangerous in a snowstorm...any mechanics or pretenders out there that could take a look at Laura's (car) tail-lights? Just askin'.

Im so angry, Im so at ease said...

No no, not at all; I was only implying that I was too hung over to even catch it... (that is I couldnt even bare to raise from bed untill like when I was supposed to at work....

bunnyjo georg said...

In that case, ISA ISE, you are forgiven. :)

Hey, I checked out your "arty farty" blog and was totalling effing blown away. I LOVE your artwork. Now, I'm saying LOVe here and that is not too strong of a word. If anyone is out there and paying attention, they should check it out. I've made a link on my blog up there above his other blog link.

Im so angry, Im so at ease said...

Now Im speechless*...*! Thanx for the nice compliments and a happy new year!!!!

shortensweet said...

TOTALLY TOTALLY TOTALLY check out that blog. I couldn't even comment I was so amazed. Magnificent

bunnyjo georg said...

We're fans now, ISA ISE....can you handle the pressure of having two witless females fawning after you? Cuz we are....

Im so angry, Im so at ease said...

*blush* No way I can handle this rationally; its to good for my ego! Just a question; since ther are two of you; can I call you a club; like a fan-club? (ouch, my ego is too hard to handle..)

bunnyjo georg said...

:)

shortensweet said...

Sure...fan club it is.
