The Day Of Larger Than Life


There used to be this great coffee shop in Cape Cod called Mrs. Wyatt's Tea Room. It was a very eclectic little restaurant with mismatch tables and chairs, big soft bean bag chairs, crayons and coloring books for the kids and lots of cool books everywhere. It was the kind of place you could get a great home cooked breakfast, homemade bread, quiches, and peanut and butter and jelly sandwiches with the crusts cut off. It was there, many years ago, that I read this enormous Birthday Book with detailed facts about every day of the year. The caption for today's birthday read, "The Day of Larger Than Life." That's today and it's my birthday. I always remembered it because I thought it summed my personality up perfectly because when I do things, I never do them small.
Other "Larger than Lifer's" born today:
Brittney Spears-27
Lucy Liu-40
Nelly Furtado-30
Stone Phillips-54

Looks like I am in good company!

To celebrate my birthday, My Guy is taking me to a fabulous Caribbean destination for the next six days. It's a kid-free, stress-free, blog-free, (I may pop in unannonced from time to time) much needed, birthday getaway and I can hardly wait to hop on the plane tomorrow morning and be ON the beach, a cocktail with an umbrella by noon.


Can you guess where I am headed? I'll give you a hint: I will be spending some time at the casinos and if you don't see me pop up anywhere by next Tuesday, let's just hope I didn't disappear off the face of the earth or get sold into sex slavery. (My Guy will keep a watchful eye on me ;)

Have a great week everyone! Peace!

Changes in latitudes / changes in attitudes.

If we weren't all crazy we would go insane.

And so HELP ME, if you are wandering over to my blog instead of enjoying the sun, sea, and fruity drinks, I will so SMACK you around like my STEELERS did your PATS onm Sunday!

Oh SNAP! He went there? Oh yeah. One of my teams FINALLY beat one of your teams in football (still hurts ND/BC) it has to come up sometime.

And just so you know, you don't share a birthday with the likes of those folks, they share it with YOU!

Enjoy the vacation. (My post tomorrow on "Lincoln Park Trixies" will still be there, waiting for you). :-)

Happy birthday! Sorry I'm a few days late. I blame that Secret Dubai guy. Anywho, hope you had a nice trip.

Lisa said...

Congrats! Have a great time and don't forget...

a hangover starts 8 hours after you stop drinking, so while on vacation, don't forget the bloody marys for breakfast. ;)

Scope said...

Welcome back. You have been missed.

I saw you just ping over at Gwen's house, so I thought I stop by and say, "Welcome home."

And GO STEELERS! ;-)
