It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To

I can honestly say that I’m not one of those people who claims an entire month as their “birth month”, or who posts on Facebook “27 days until my birthday!”  You’d probably expect me to, since I’m an only child and we often fall prey to negative stereotypes. I do not do those things. I will say, though, that I do place a high level of importance on my birthday. Because of this, you can imagine that I was very upset when I heard that the world may potentially end this evening, because my birthday is still a few days away (it’s this Tuesday).

The potential apocalypse, combined with the fact that my birthday falls on a work day/weeknight has made it so that I am celebrating my birthday this weekend. That way no earthquake, meteorite, or hefty work assignment will prevent me from enjoying the day in which I arrived on the scene.

C has once again proven that he took good notes in Boyfriend 101 as he has planned a nice, semi-surprise dinner. It’s only a semi-surprise because I am also semi-neurotic and therefore I like the idea of surprises but don’t actually like not knowing what’s happening next, so I prefer to have a general idea of where I’m going, what’s going to happen, what I need to wear, etc. but still like to have  a few elements of surprise. Does that make sense? I don’t really think it’s supposed to.

After dinner, we’re meeting a few friends out downtown at a bar/club.  I’ve always wanted to be a part of a Britney Spears music video, so I think it would be really terrific if we literally could be dancing when the world ends.


On the actual day of my birth, we’re going to my parents’ house where my mom is cooking dinner. Then next weekend we’re going to New York City to meet up with our friends from college (lots of them live there), so we’ve got all the bases covered. I’m really, REALLY excited.

Any fun weekend plans? If the world were to end tonight, how would you want to spend it? I don’t think dancing would be a bad option. Also, if only 3% of the population were to be saved…who would make the cut? Oprah? Michelle Obama? Maria Shriver for all the crap she’s put up with?
