today is my birthday.
i have this thing with my birthday.
i can’t even tell you why…but I have seriously considered canceling facebook for the day so no one can say happy birthday to me.
(i’m such a scrooge! ha!)
(random sidenote: i missed saying happy birthday to a few friends on facebook…and now I tell NO one happy birthday in fear that the ones i have missed will see that i’m wishing someone else a happy birthday and wonder why they didn’t get one.
I’ve got issues.)
So, to cheer me up…and get me out of a birthday funk…I like to do random BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAYS!!!!!
