Sixpence none the wiser
There are the types of personalities who get fixated on particular times of year. For some it may be Christmas with an overload of holly and ivy to make even Santa seem like public enemy #1. Or maybe Halloween is the obsession of choice with full fledged jack o'lantern excess. For me? Ever since I was old enough to remember, it was all about the natal day. Not like I needed an extra excuse to focus my OCD for a good cause, but it was just plain fun. Planning my beauty appointments and crossing them off my checklist in preparation was being like a kid in a candy store. There was the all day spa pampering, getting my hair done, indulging at one too many cosmetic counters and toasting it up with friends. What's not to love?
But call it maturity or just being too cash strapped to act the fool, this year I've got a serious case of the blah's. I don't really care and for some strange reason... it's not even bothering me. I'm still in sweats, hair's a complete mess and I have no intentions of stepping outside my front door. Is this what getting older does to you? Do you need to consciously suppress the kid within or is it a necessary trade off as the digits climb higher on the age ladder? Maybe it's the thought of transitioning from my 20's sooner rather than later that has my ass in a tailspin.
Regardless of mixed emotions, I do still believe in counting my blessings and hoping the coming forecast is better than the last. And today holds quite two significant milestones that can still make a jaded bitch like me smile. Just a bit.
- The Giants can take their first step back to the Super Bowl in 7 years at Lambeau Field this afternoon. Here's hoping that cheeseheads end up sobbing in their beers and the fairytale of Brett Favre ends like a pumpkin at midnight when all is said and done. Go Big Blue!
- The fascist regime better known as the Bush crime syndicate will have their reign of lies, theocracy and bullshit come to a permanent end exactly 365 days from today.
Happy birthday, Aquarius! Peace and goodwill are your two best friends. Striving to attain a harmonious environment comes naturally, and that's why you are blessed with many good friendships. This year will be one in which you're able to strengthen your domain, tie up any loose ends, concentrate on family and home, and lay the foundations for future happiness, personal and professional triumph. The world is your oyster.From that astrologer's lips to God's ears. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a few red velvet cupcakes to devour in rapid succession.
