It's My Party And I'll Cry If I Want To

I forgot to write this post up in advance so it's a little late but it's also live, so there is that. If you've been around for a while and you have a good memory then you know what day today is. It is the anniversary of the day I vomited forth from my mother's womb. Or, to put it nicely, my birthday. Don't worry though I don't plan on doing any crying.
I even baked my own cake this year. Here it is before I put it in the oven.
I feel much better about this birthday than I did the last one. Last year I was a damn emotional mess on my birthday because I felt I had lived 25 years and not really done anything worth a damn. Today I actually earn an income, even if it is only a moderate one, and I'm in a much better place overall. Except my weight really. After today I'm entering a competition with my friend to lose the most weight though. Her own weight is getting away from her and it's best to nip that in the bud. We're going to compete to see who can lose the most weight by the end of the summer.
Here is my cake in the oven
I planned on not doing any work today for that matter. I'm still stuck with some though. I did get a few nice birthday wishes from clients who know it's my birthday. That was pretty awesome. I don't dislike the idea of working on my birthday. My boss did it yesterday. I'm just going to have a very busy day even outside of my birthday. I'll be out of the house for a good 4-5 hours today. I have my weight loss stuff, I'll be buying birthday stuff (I'm getting a PS3) and I get to cap everything off with a doctor's appointment.

My cake when it was done. Not absolutely absolutely awful. I'll let you know if eating it kills me
Well the day got off to a decent start. Let's see where the rest of it goes.

PS Yes; a part of me does enjoy the fact that I'm "26 on the 26th".


  1. Ayy I knew it! (Thanks Skype, at least you're good for something. (^: )
    The good old "generation behind" gaming. All the fun, less than half the price. Enjoy!

  2. Happy Birthday, Mark! And yes, this will be a special year for you -- 26 on the 26th -- it's a Harmonic Convergence! Enjoy that cake!

  3. Happy Birthday Mark, have a wonderful day and enjoy your cake! I really sense a new maturity in you, in the past few months!

  4. Happy birthday!

    I try not to worry overly much about accomplishments. I'm having an interesting time in life, and I believe that's more than enough to keep me going.

    It's going to be a great year!

  5. Happy birthday Mark. Hope you're having a great time. Remember life is a journey not a destination (I got that off a fridge magnet).

  6. I'm glad you're happier Mark, honestly I think the weight thing that worries you now won't worry you forever. You're doing everything to combat that so be proud of yourself. You're going to need to update your information now though, that 13-25 age range is gone!
