I’ve gotten some awesome gifts over the years (psst it’s 15 days away) but here are some of the best I’ve received:

My  Hebrew Name Tattoo: Manly Man got this for me for Chanukah one year, what’s weird is the place turned out to have Hitler on it’s business cards…

A Bag Of Goodies: My SIL got me this for my birthday right after I met her when I joined the company she worked at. It is still one of the best gifts I’ve gotten and I try to do that kind of thing for my friends every chance I get now.

My One-of-a-Kind Moon Stone Necklace: Manly Man had it made for me at a jewelry store years ago, it’s one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.

Flowers At Work: That always makes my day, it’s happened a few times. Even better would be like an Edible Arrangement.

Personal Cupcakes: Twice Gwen has sent me cupcakes, nothing says love like cupcakes that look like boobs.

I pretty much always get electronics from my parents, which is awesome because otherwise we probably wouldn’t have a laptop or tv.

Other than all that, there is always my Wishlist (yes I’m pimping it, screw you)

Next week is a crazy week for me:

14th – 7 year anniversary. Not sure if we’ll do anything. I wish we could go away but we can’t afford it, not this year.

15th – FIL’s birthday, we’ll probably go out to dinner at some point.

19th – My bday and my SD’s bday.

21st – My 5th anniversary at my job *thud* that was me hitting the floor out of shear paralyzing horror.

I’m kind of needy this year, I haven’t cared much years before but this year I kind of wish I could have a real birthday for once. I don’t know what that means, I just want to feel like I matter a little and that I’m worth some effort. I haven’t felt like that since my wedding really (other than by Manly Man) and even on my wedding I never really got to feel that way with all the crap that came along with the whole event.

However, I still don’t want happy birthday sung to me, that shit has to stop at least after you turn 30. It’s the only humane thing to do.

22 Thoughts on “Best Gifts

  1. So you DON’T want me to call and sing happy birthday? Damn.

  2. Oh yeah – I made the list! I feel like I win. Yay!

  3. Why would anyone put Hitler on their business cards? Even a tattoo shop?

    You DO matter. I hope you get what you want for your birthday, though, and not just the material things, but the feeling! I mean that.

    • @Shelli, I don’t really care about the material things, it’s feeling like you matter and thank you.

      Yeah I think the Hitler thing was supposed to be a joke but since I was getting a Jewish tattoo it was not quite funny.

  4. The best gift is that you have your health, assuming you’re not terminally ill or anything. If you are, then at least the cupcakes are a nice consolation.

  5. “Flowers At Work: That always makes my day, it’s happened a few times. Even better would be like an Edible Arrangement.”

    Yes! Edible arrangments! That would suit me just fine too!:)

  6. You really wouldn’t want to hear me sing ….

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR ROBIN, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

    How’s that?

    I hope you get lots of cool presents so you can take pictures and tell us all about them ;)

  7. I’m usually late with birthday wishes so this I just wanted to be the first to *sing* Happy Birthday to you. I’ll just have to mark my calendar and come back on the 19th and *sing* it again. ;)

  8. It is your Birthday Month and you should celebrate it all month long. Right? I think I need to celebrate by having a cocktail now. ;)

  9. I think it is a requirement to drink extra during your birthday month. CHEERS!

  10. That’s kinda jacked about the Hitler on the business cards…not really appropriate in any instance, one would think.

    I LOVE edible arrangements. Mmmm.

  11. It’s still fun to have happy birthday sung to you, even when you’re older – don’t be so grumpy. :)

  12. oh lots of celebrations!! enjoy!! :) I love bdays, I am 25 forever!

  13. Don’t worry — I’d never sing Happy Birthday to you because you might get an ear infection. Yes, that’s how bad I sing and who wants an ear infection on their birthday?

    Birthdays are somewhat anticlimactic, for me, anwyay, so I hope yours is really special this year. (((hugs)))

    P.S. – There’s nothing wrong with tooting your own horn, shameless plugs, and pimping your wishlist.
