|Beware the Dog|
|2003-07-16 || You FOB|
Were you wondering why I didn�t update yesterday?� It�s because it was my birthday.� I am twenty-seven.� Twenty-seven years old.� It has been twenty-seven years since I was born in Teaneck, NJ.� And, no, I was not born in a hotel or motel or in the back of a Chevy.� I was born in a hospital or that it what my parent�s claim.� Although, suspiciously, I have never seen any record of this hospital birth.
Yesterday I had the best birthday EVER.� I planned it myself.� This is what I did;� I woke up at 8:20 � sleeping late, hey now, took care of the dogs, drove the boyfriend to work, worked out, walked for fifty-five minutes with the Pappers dog, showered, had a massage, shopped for four hours, picked up Maggiano�s carry-out for dinner, picked up the boyfriend, took care of the dogs and got silly drunk.
I found out that I love massages.� Love them and can�t wait to go back and schedule another one.� After today, I might need to do that soon.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
When I got back to the office today I was slammed with e-mails and voice mails.� Apparently the world nearly ends if I take a day off.� Irate volunteers and even more irate potential volunteers and a near threatening potential community service crowded my day with complaints of calls that had not been returned in the past day that I was out of the office.� One guy even came up to my work and wrote me a note this morning.� Too bad that I am unable to help him.�
I was verbally attacked in a morning staff meeting.� The party that I threw on Monday did not meet my boss� expectations.� She was hoping that more people would show up.� My powers of persuasion have apparently let her down again.� Shucks.
I bought myself new pants, watch, two shirts, a bra and a sweater at the mall.� My parent�s had given me a gift certificate to the Gap.� My sister and her fianc�e bought me a new Kate Spade bag; the nylon medium shopper.� I carried it to work today.� I love it.� Very much.
I just got a call from my landlady.� My last gift � a new Coach keychain � is waiting for me at home!
