31 in the hizouse! Word! *

Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to me!
Happy Birthday to MEEE!
Happy Birthday to me!

Today, I am officially "in" my 30s. I suppose you could argue (and Friendster Guy would) that I've been in my 30s since turning 30 last year but I disagree. 31 is infinitely different from 30. It doesn't hold quite the same transitional mystique, and it's certainly much harder to find a Happy 31st Birthday card. I personally wasn't afraid of 30. I got all the drama out in my 20s (marriage/divorce) so I had nothing to be afraid of. 31 is kind of a let down really. It's not exactly special.

But I am. Today, I am fabulous. Today has already been great:

I woke up just before my alarm clock which meant I got optimum sleep time but not the rude awakening.

It's a gorgeous sunny day.

I've spontaneously decided to take the afternoon off (only a couple more hours) and I might hit a matinee.

I realized that the more candles there are on the cake, the bigger the cake!

And, to top it all off, I got to hear Pat Benatar rock out to Hit Me With Your Best Shot this morning on my commute in. As my birthday present to you, here's a little live Ms. Benatar. Rock on people of the internet!

* I may have a had a little too much caffeine this morning. I'm totally wired.

I didn't know you were THAT much younger than me! I'm only 3 years away from 50. Happy Birthday!!!!! One week left in the Smokies. :) and :(

That's because I'm wicked mature. Or you're immature. Or both.

I think we meet in the middle.

Plus, age is a state of mind and you're definitely not closing in on 50 to me.

And, 31 is a prime number!

Happy Birthday!!!! The thirties are way better than the twenties, believe me (and I am very soon going to be on the back side of the thirties)! Hope you have a fabulous day! xoxo
