Happy Birthday to me

Some people choose not to tell people it's their birthday and hope people remember.  This is a risky strategy.  I prefer to tell as many people as possible and then, when they wish me happy birthday, I can pretend they remembered.  Well today it is my birthday.  I'm mediumly old but in my head I look like a supermodel so, as long as I stay away from mirrors, it will be a glamorous birthday for me once again.

    Never mind the mirror--mirrors aren't an accurate reflection of your pure awesomeness! Get funky with your bad self! Live life so when you're old and senile you'll enjoy the ride again!

  106. Happy birthday! Hope you had a great day and your family spoiled you.

    I like your philosophy, but personally I'm one of those ones that keeps quiet. Instead, I bake myself a cake and buy myself a present, which is really all you need, right? Though maybe your way results in lots of cakes and lots of presents? Now that would be a good day! :)
