A birthday on the world wide web

My blogging friend Jenny has a birthday today
She’s hocking silly stuff in her shop, hooray
She cusses on her blog and people comment back with praise
What in Heaven is this world coming to these days?!
I’m not really upset at the sentence above,
I tease and I write purely with sisterly love. 🙂

I wake up this morning, and what do I see on my Facebook? A friend is having a birthday. For some reason I do not know, my creativity switch turned on, and this poem is the result. (Actually, I knew before fb told me, but then, along with the masses, read her blog. I’m not sure why it almost took a mean turn, just looking for words to rhyme on the fly. She’s a dear and fun woman, especially in person. Hehe I can be so silly sometimes. Gotta love me (or not..whatever). 😀

I survived another year – gotta celebrate!

Yep, it’s been a whole year since I last blogged about what happened on this day a *cough* while ago. So, excuse me for a moment as I say “Happy Birthday” to myself. *repeats in a whisper: Happy Birthday, self* 😀

(uh-oh…looks like I choose a cake [above] with candles that never go out..I’ll be blowing all night long! heh-heh)

I had a few audible mentions when I went out tonight for dinner, which helped make up for the lack thereof online (*mock-glares at my so-called blog friends* Probably too busy with Fun Monday – LOL). *grin* I went out for a delicious dinner at BJ’s Steakhouse – totally delicious!!! And, they gave me a birthday dessert (for free), too. All the food was totally yummy, the servers were really nice and I highly recommend the place. I even ran into some family friends, which was really cool. All in all, a good day was had–even if I had to work first (hah!)–and exhausted I will fall into a deep sleep tonight I’m sure.

I end this entry with a fun poem that I’ve enjoyed reading (over and over again).

The ABC’s of Aging…

A’s for arthritis;
B’s the bad back,
C’s the chest pains, perhaps car-d-iac?
D is for dental decay and decline,
E is for eyesight, can’t read that top line!
F is for fissures and fluid retention,
G is for gas which I’d rather not mention.
H is high blood pressure–I’d rather it low;
I is for incisions with scars you can show.
J is for joints, out of socket, won’t mend,
K is for knees that crack when they bend.
L is for libido, what happened to sex?
M is for memory, I forget what comes next.
N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low;
O is for osteo, the bones that don’t grow!
P is for prescriptions, I have quite a few, just give me a pill and I’ll be good as new!
Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu?
R is for reflux, one meal turns to two.
S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears,
T is for Tinnitus; there’s bells in my ears!
U is for urinary; big troubles with flow;
V is for vertigo, that’s “dizzy,” you know.
W is for worry, NOW what’s going ’round?
X is for X ray, and what might be found.
Y is another year I’m left here behind,
Z is for zest that I still have– in my mind.

I’ve survived all the symptoms, my body’s deployed,
And I am keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!!!

Even though I’m not quite that old (thankfully), it’s still good for a nod, a giggle, and an OMG! moment or two. 😉

Oh, and Happy Birthday also to one of my favorite baseball players, Mr. Adam Cowart. 😀
PS. I’m still plurking pretty regularly…do say “hi” when you stop in for a visit. – click here to plurk (sorry, the widget won’t insert, hence the click-thru).
