CELEBRATING AN UNBIRTHDAY

Thursday, February 28, 2013




I was born on February 29th which comes once every 4 years therefore I celebrate my birthday only in years divisible by 4 and this year isn't. Folks, I am only 19 and 1/4 years old starting to plan for my 20th birthday on February 29, 2016, but some people are just pushy and insist I am a year older this year so, against my better judgement, I am going along with them. (And some people think I am not nice--HA!)

Though it wasn't part of my unbirthday plan I was surprised when I decided NOT to write/post a blog either Tuesday or Wednesday but even more surprising the world didn't end nor did I suffer any withdrawal pains! I might release myself from feeling I have to post every day--oh stop the cheering!!


Just some quick notes about the above pictures--this week was like any other week with a few additions which I wouldn't mind every week.

#1 I was at home waiting to find out whether I was getting tickets to see Stephanie Powers in "Looped" which was opening at the Parker PLayhouse. I got a call asking if I would be home as they had a delivery--I explained the situation and he said he would be over within 40 minutes and he was with a package in his hand. He told me to put it in the fridge which I did knowing it was a carrot cake just from what the box said on it "Sweetsdaybakeshop.com" and I was right!! As it turned out I never got the theatre call BUT I didn't even have a slice of the carrot cake.

#2 & 3 I had received a gift set box of movie musicals by Rodgers & Hammerstein including "Carousel", "Oklahoma", "The King and I", "State Fair", "South Pacific" and "The Sound Of Music" a few weeks ago and was waiting for a special time to watch them. I figured between the DVDs, the carrot cake and my unbirthday I would stay in this weekend but look at picture 2--obviously I have mice in the apartment so I have to eat the cake before it is gone!

#4 & 10 Tuesday, before going to see "Les Miserables" we grabbed a quick bite at the DRB (Democratic Republic of Beers #10--don't ask--see my review Saturday) and this afternoon we had lunch at Wild East Asian Bistro--#4--(see my review next week).

#5 & 6 Gift cards to Subways and Home Depot

#7, 8 & 9 At "Les Miserables"--#7 is a publicity still--#8 Are Charlie, the PA, and Charlotte, PR, for Broadway Across America at the Arsht Center opening night--#9 is something I have to stop doing--it is the cast taking their curtain call! (Next Tuesday we go to see the stage production of "Flashdance" before it heads to Broadway.) You can see my review of "Les Miz" at broadwayshowbiz.com now

#11 My unbirthday table--can you see the blooming February birthday/unbirthday cactus?

I would like to say "Thank You" to those who posted happy 'unbirthday' wishes as part of your blogs and those who added your comments. I love the ecards many of you sent and, of course, those who sent snail mail cards.

Okay folks start saving your pennies to come to my 20th birthday party on Monday, February 29, 2016--well actually I celebrate that birthday all week long!

    Happy unbirthday. May you be blessed even when the calendar doesn't reflect your special day. God bless you & remember age is only a number anyway.
