It's July!


What my birth month means: JULY

Introspective and intense, you tend to be a deep thinker.

You are quiet and spiritual - and you have a unique perspective on life.


Your soul reflects: Lightness, luck and an open heart

Your gemstone: Ruby

Your flower: Larkspur

Your colors: Green and red

Yes, it's my birthday in July !! It will be on the 11th .. neat eh? I do like birthdays, don't you? I'll be officially 47 on that day, which apparently is the ideal age. Old enough to know better and still considered young. Go figure.

But this is odd, because I used to think I could imagine what 47 would feel like, and it’s just not like that. It’s not like that at all.

It’s just like being 25!

In that you feel like you’re twenty-five, but look at all the other 25-year-olds and wonder why they’re all acting so very young. Lol!

Well mainly on my birthday I am going to be working, because it’s a Saturday. I will, however, be taking the afternoon off to do some shopping and buy something for a special dinner with my kids. I don't normally celebrate birthdays with friends. It's always a quite celebration for me.

I will spend most of the morning, inbetween bouts of work, sitting in front of my computer, probably doing some serious blogging because it's important to keep yourself occupied as you reach advanced age. Ha ha ha, as if it's something new! And I will open my cards and open some presents, MAYBE.

And I will be grateful for all of that.

OHHH. That reminds me, someone asked where my wishlist had gone. It is now here and is filled with things I am meaning to buy at some point when I’ve got some money. But I don’t think you can use it from Canada, whichever nice anonymous person was asking, so thank you, I am grateful for the thought.)

So yes. IT WILL BE MY BIRTHDAY SOON.

And that is the end of it.

Glad I've found your blog, one of the very best of the kind.
Have a blossom blessing from this blogger's heart!
And if you do drop by at mine, I sure hope you at least blogbang me
by watching my french creativitees from beginning to end
and mind my paypal donate boton for milk and nappy-diapers
for my two daughters, one of seven months and the other of three years.
What's two or three bucks or euros to you?
Do note it means my salvation for I am desperate for survival
and that close to die from dispare and misery in this Crisis.

I realy need your help badly and your help is that simple, but then
we all need eachother one way or another sooner or later.
And you can allways count on me and my big hurted heart.
Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours in a Mystical
and Misterious Way, oh blessed one!

[Up to now from whom I call upon only one person
dared to donnate me 15 euros! Everybody else is frightned
to be fooled by giving or then again I'm nothing but a dum ass by begging.
Yet is that so hard do give two dollars or euros or pounds away
helping someone unemployed, hungry, in pain and utterly poor?!
Not everyone can understand and dress this situation as if it was his own].

I can't really remember a time when I liked my b-day. It's just another day to me. For many many years, that and all holidays have been nothing but a source of agrivation and stress for me.

And wtf is up with that jack-off joshua and his spam? I'm gonna ask him to "donate" some of what he gets to me, a true broke ass man. :D

Odette said...

AA,
we create our special days. it's not the trimmings or the flickering lights, not the buntings, not the fireworks, etc. it can be festive around you but if you feel lousy it won't be special.
i feel inner joy on my bdays because i know i am special, unique, and utterly indispensable. no person alive, no person who has ever lived, and no person who shall ever live, can fulfill the specific role God entrusted in me.
ok ok! lower your eyebrows now. can't i even gloat on my birthday?!!!
Ha ha ha!
