Happy almost birthday to me!

Tomorrow's my birthday. Weird thing, I almost forgot. So, I guess today is my birthday eve. I'm pretty sure that I was in the process of being born XX years ago, so it's sort of an unofficial celebration for me. And, less pressure than the real birthday. At least, it's not triple digits! I wish I had a cool birthday like on Halloween. Then I could dress up like a goblin and all my nonsensical behavior would be excused. My daughter has the coolest birthday ever. New years day. She sees the neighborhood fireworks on New Years Eve and thinks they are for her birthday! I don't plan to tell her any differently. I wish someone would celebrate me like that. Do you have a cool birthday, like a Christmas day or Fourth of July birthday? Do you celebrate your birthday on Mylot with your friends, or just privately in your own home?

Happy birthday for tomorrow beautyqueen. My hubbys birthday is New Years day too and it's his 40th next year. Not sure what we are doing as money is tight but we shall see. The three of us usually celebrate it together :)

Having a movie night in, for two might be fun. And it doesn't cost anything, except movie rental fees.

Happy....happy...birthday to you. Well a year older is surely going to make you wiser. I have not been celebrating my birthdays for many years now as whenever my birthday comes I feel sad and happy at the same time. Sad? because it reminds me that I am reaching my twilight period. A period of many uncertainities, onset of old age sickness is all in my mind. I am no longer spring chicken and have to be careful on diet and health. On the positive tone, well, it is a grand welcome for a new digit to our age . It is a blessing we are able to reach a new chapter in our life. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY and wish you many more years to come".signed: angel

My birthday was in August. It's not a cool date or anything. But it is the 29th, so when Labor Day falls on the first, my birthday is the Friday of Labor Day weekend. That's the way it was this year, so my husband actually had the evening off, so we got to go out. Normally we wouldn't have been able to, since he works second shift.

That is cool birthday! I wish my spouse were off work on my birthday! He's not. But, funny thing is, most of the world is off work on my daughter's birthday. We got the girl gift basket at the hospital where she was born for first baby girl born in the new year there. She made the other girl babies wait until late that night to be born. I've always thought she was busy getting her hair fixed!

I guess even if I want to my birthday is on the side dishno money no honey. So it's typically just a normal day for me. Nothing cool..Sometimes I myself forget it. Oh well...Anyways, hope you have fun this day like what you wanted.Take care!

Well happy slightly belated birthday BeautyQueen :-) I'm still missing net access at home, so excuse my being late with my greetings. Better late than never though eh?! It was my birthday this week as well, and my son's, so shall I send up a birthday cheer for us all? **** HURRAH!!!! ****

Hope you had a great birthday. My birthday is at the end of August so I have to pt up with the August bank holiday when celebrating my birthday. I wouldn't like my birthday on Christmas day, New Year Eve would be cool, a double celebration!! I think its sweet that your daughter thinks the fireworks are for her birthday. It will be a shame when she's older and realises that they weren't for her at all, but I suppose by then she will be too old to celebrate her birthday with fireworks!!

Hey, I'm answering this today, so I can say Happy Birthday and it really is your birthday. I hope you have a good day, and hopefully someone has decided to treat you with a special gift, or maybe a cake? As for being born on a holiday, I have a friend born on October 30th, the day before Halloween. But one of my uncles was born on Christmas Day. Poor guy, he got shafted on gifts because of what day his birthday fell on. lol

My birthday two months ago was no biggie to me. But, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you Queen! My son's birthday is on flag day here in our country. As a small child I told him how special he was to have everyone put flags out to celebrate. LOL That is until he learned otherwise in school and called me on the lie. I hope you have a fun filled birthday and whatever you wish for comes true.

Hello there, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Beautyqueen! I wish you all the joys life could bring! In my case, I always want a very simple celebration of my birthday, that wiht family members and few friends only. The most important thing for me on my birthday is going to the church to hear mass in thanksgiving for another year added. May you celebrate yours the happiest this year ever!

Happy birthday to ya!!! I don't have a cool birthday. I'm July 19th. But it works out kind of nice half the year away from Christmas so I don't all my presents at one time of the year. ;-)

well... first thing's first! Happy birthday eve!! lol and no, I really don't care too much about my birthday, and I don't have too much negative comments about it. Birthday is just a day that tells me I was.. born! I don't really celebrate my own birthday on myLot, as first of all, I joined myLot like 5 or 6 months after my birthday (I joined August I think, so my b-day is March) and I really take it seriously special. I just think of it as... "ah, I'm getting older.. lol" and just let it pass by haha happy posting :)
