Tagged? On my Birthday??

Hell, this is almost like work! ;-) Army Wife has decided to get me to tell a few tales by hitting me with a Birthday Meme.

Hmmmm - let's see what we've got here, shall we?

Birthday Meme

1. What is your favorite birthday cake?
Long time ago, Mama used to always make me Butter Brickle Cake with Butter Brickle Icing. It is, hands down, my very favorite cake. (I put the link to the recipe just in case someone wanted to make it. hehehe Just don't forget to call and let me know when it's ready!)

2. What has been the best gift you have ever received?
Hmmmm - that is really tough because I have been terribly spoiled over the years. But, a friend gave me "a day of peace" one year. I was having a rough time adjusting and well, just having a tough time period. It was a day of nothing more than excellent company, beautiful scenery and good conversation. No one had ever done anything like that before. Yeah, it was the best gift ever.

3. How did you spend your favorite birthday?
Well, this is a twofer.

One of my favorite birthdays was my 10th. I thought I'd told this story, but can't seem to find it anywhere. Anyway - My Uncle's birthday was the 26th so we had a combined party. All the family, together, laughing, singing, eating. I played until I just couldn't go on anymore. In the basement was my Uncle sharing a bit of his homemade wine with the other men in the family. I felt duty bound to help clean up, so I finished off all the stuff in the glasses. Hehehehe. It was a wonderful day. It was also the last birthday Daddy and Uncle John were a part of. So it will always be extra special.

The other great birthday was my 40th. My friends and I went out on the town. It was the first time I'd gone OUT to celebrate my birthday. We had a ball. And I had never felt so special as I did that evening. I still have the pictures up and have to smile every time I think of it.

4. Do you make birthday wishes?
Yes, yes I do.

5. Has a wish ever come true?
Yes, yes it has. I'm a big believer in wishes. And I'm not tellin' any tales on THAT one. ;-)

Heh. That wasn't so tough after all. And made for a very easy post for today. Thanks AW. For everything.

Congratulations on surviving another trip around the sun!

It’s hell, they say, when you get old.
Your toenails all are caked with mold,
Or maybe other kinds of fungus.
It’s hard to breathe with ancient lungus.
All bloodshot are your rheumy eyes,
All weak and stringy are your thighs.
Your pancreas is stiff and sore,
And buttocks droop towards the floor.
With exercise, your muscles ache,
It feels like all your bones will break.
You day by day get soft and flabby,
Your disposition loutish, crabby.
Digestion, once a simple task,
Becomes a chore (and please, don’t ask.)
Shoulder joints all get bursitis.
Your bladder wakes you up at nightis.
Your backbone gives you many pains.
Increasingly sieve-like grow your brains,
Until you cannot keep in mind
that “this is your elbow, that’s your behind”:
Getting old, it is not kind.

But whene’er these thoughts go thro’ my head,
I think: “It sure beats being dead.”

Of course, you're waaaay too young to be thinking like this...
