We celebrate Groundhog's Day around here EVERY year. Yep, every single one... we never miss it. of course the small ones think it necessary to blow out candles whilst looking for my shadow... but the older I get I have shunned the "birthday" element somewhat and just reveled in the groundhog part of the day.
besides, this little song has a lot more musicality to it than "Happy Birthday to You"... seriously - I'm pretty sure I've never heard a really good rendition of that one. and yes, I'm including M. Monroe's breathy "Happy Birthday Mr. President" in that list of train wrecks.
and no, I'm not ignoring the fact that I'm a titch bit older as of 7 something this morning... I'm just reveling in my 30-something status for as long as I can eke it out.
next year - for the big 4-0 I'd like a huge surprise party... anyone willing to throw it for me?
What? me? ruin the surprise by planning it myself? that's unheard of!!! (just let me know when to have the cake ready...)
I have it on good authority that my lovely S.I.L. Sher has dedicated her entire blog to the awesomeness that is me today (although I haven't read it as of this writing...) You should check it out... and let me know if you decide to follow suit (I kid, I kid...) I know that she had a hard time finding pictures of me where I wasn't making funny faces though... and for that I am sorry... and really... I have no idea why I'm always participating in ugly face contests when Sher is snapping pictures ::) (see, even my smilie is all screwy just for the occasion!)
