In Which I Survive Another Year

I turn twenty-four years old today.

Considering the events of late, I consider that to be an accomplishment.

I purposefully didn't make any extravagant plans for today. It's going to be a pretty laid back day, consisting of watching the Patriot's game, grilling up some hamburgers and hot dogs, and just taking it all in. Both of my sisters and their spouses are coming up, too, so that should round out the day pretty nicely.

I'm not holding my breath for a new iPod to be among any of the presents I may receive, but I am hoping for the season one DVD set of "Fringe". I want to scour all of the scenes in every episode and every bonus feature to see if I can catch a glimpse of any of my pictures.

The highlight of the day (you'd think seeing all my family on my birthday would be the highlight) surely will be the ice cream cake. It's homemade, and it's almost better than sex.

Almost.

Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to postpone the New England area blogger meet-up that I had scheduled for next Sunday. When I had scheduled it originally, I thought that all of this allergy stuff was behind me. With it all flaring up again, I think it's best to put the meet-up on hold and get my health back on track. I still want to make it happen, and it will happen. Once I'm on the road to recovery, I'll take a look and see what is possible to do.

I hope you all had a good weekend, and thank you for all your well wishes on my previous post. It's encouraging to know that I've got such kick-ass people rooting for me, especially when things aren't looking so bright.

Happy Birthday, kiddo! 24? Geez, I got freakin' shoes older than you....seriously, lots of them.

I didn't hear any more about the meet-up. Did I get eliminated from the guest list because I'm too old?

Kim said...

Happy Birthday and hopefully this year will be allergic reaction free.

My aunt makes AMAZING homemade ice cream cake.
However nothing beats the crunchy things on the store bought ones.

Happy Birthday, Geek! I just found the awesomeness that is Fringe and watched the whole first season this weekend. What should I be on the look out for?

The Peach Tart said...

Very Happy birthday!

MIT Mommy said...

Happy Birthday! I certainly wish you a great year ahead and MANY MANY more to come. I'd say something about squeezing your cheeks and patting you on the head but it just doesn't have the same connotations over here as in my sweet little mommyblog. Ooops.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Happy Birthday again, sweetie. You deserve it.

world of sekimachihato said...

happy birthday!

for the love of pictures said...

Hey Badass :) Happy (belated) B-day! I hope you had a good day and that you were able to relax a bit.

I am so sorry that you still have to be dealing with this allergy stuff. Hopefully that will resolve itself soon so that you can concentrate on enjoying year 24 :)

Badass Geek said...

To All: Thank you all very much! I had a great day, with the only sour spot being that the Patriots played a sloppy game and lost. The burgers were excellent, the ice cream cake was supreme, and I got almost enough birthday money to afford a new iPod. All in all, it was a really, truly good day.

Thanks again, everyone!

Tammy Howard said...

Always a day late and a dollar short - glad to hear you had a happy day!

Shoot - I thought the Patriots won - I better check my meds...

Little Ms Blogger said...

Happy, happy belated birthday...

Homemade ice cream cake sounds yummy, but I'm sorry the allergies are still a problem.

My birthday wish is that they find out what's wrong with you soon, but until then, enjoy the cake.

JennyMac said...

Very happy birthday M!

Aunt Juicebox said...

When my daughter got her ipod, we bought it from Amazon, which was cheaper than even Walmart, and even got free shipping. Also, they gave her some free music from their download store. You might want to check it out when you have all the money for one.

Happy Birthday! Homemade ice cream cake is the best! We'll just forget about the Pats debacle, shall we? That's my plan, anyway. That and more ice cream.

O hai! I'm the asshole who came late to the party!
