Another Year...

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.~Reverend Larry Lorenzoni

That's one way to look at it. The last few years, I wasn't very happy about getting older. This year I'm ok about it. I'm just in a general bad mood about my birthday this year. I think it's not having a house of my own right now. There is nothing to say that the first day of a new year sets the tone for the whole year. Besides, it's a beautiful sunny day outside today. And I get to eat cake and not feel guilty about it.

A few famous people who share my birthday:
Christopher Marlowe (1564)
Victor Hugo (1802)
Not bad. Very literary. I'm going to read Les Miserables one of these days.

Johnny Cash (1932)
William Cody "Buffalo Bill" (1846)
Hmmm... Rebellious.

Erykah Badu (1972)
She's a groovy chick. I'll have a piece of cake for her.


  1. Happy Birthday, Chris!!

    I don't share yours, but mine is tomorrow. :) Hope you have a fabulous day and lots of cake!

  2. Thanks! Happy Early B-Day to you!

  3. I think Elizabeth Taylor also shares your birthday, but I'm not sure. Happy birthday! Maybe you'll be settled in your own place soon.

    I used to lie (by a few hours) and tell people I was born the day before, which is Emily Dickinson's birthday.

  4. This means you're a fellow Pisces, yes? Birthday's to me are always great. I look at them like Christmas for 1. I'm such a heretic--oh, well. And I love your Lorenzini quote! LOL! And just think, your next birthday will be your first in your new house.

  5. Hey Chris! Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great trip! Just will have a house soon!

  6. Bybee- Liz Taylor's on the 27th. When I was a kid, I wished I had been born a day later. Susan gets to share it with her though!
