Don't feel alone my mind ran off years ago. It doesn't even send a card or check in at all.
I don't even know what I did to piss it off.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

Yep, this April was the first one I did not get at 10:04AM. It was like the day did not start.

The last B-day I had was 2/12/1995 my mom was in the oncology unit an was put on a ventilator that day. She made my family promise to not forget, they didn't. So in reality I have never had a b-day since my 33rd. She passed 7 days after, complications from allergic reaction to morphine, the bone marrow transplant did work. But the Dr's didn't know she was allergic, none of us did.

Maybe that explains my Peter Pan syndrome.

33 is a good time to stop having birthdays. The key that you found was to keep living and enjoying life. We don't really need the birthday thing.

Now Karen Carpenter, Sam Cooke, Ray Gillen, John Belushi, Jesus...they didn't get the memo on "keep living". It happens.

Or maybe you need a new and clean mirror?

With 38 polling respondents we have ourselves a pretty good bell curve going there.

I see 39. If I was still participating in polls, I would have totally fuxored it.

I made it up a decade or so ago. Not really sure the base etymology any longer. It seems to have grown in the intervening time.
