Is the Rumour true??

Monday, 4 February 2008

It really was a lovely day. Who wouldn’t want to start the day waking to this?


One especially nice side-benefit of Facebook is the birthday reminder on the right side-bar. How wonderful to be greeted by a slew of birthday greetings from the most unexpected people.

Unlike my experience from the other residents of my home.

Poppyseed gets a pass because she was out-of-town for much of the weekend. So does Peach ’cause he doesn’t talk.

PC: “You didn’t give me a chance to wish you happy birthday!!”

[After I asked if anyone had anything to say to me.]

Beernut: “It’s your birthday today??”

[Um, whose responsibility was it to tell the kids??]

Got a great card from one of the religious school kids. We share a birthday so we’ve got a special connection!!

Anyway, spent much of the day at work. Took a yummy babynap with Peach. And then…dinner and a movie!

Yeah, I need to get out more often. But PC and I haven’t actually made it to the movie part of a date in a looooooong time. We’ve just been to tired. ‘Course we went to dinner at about 5:15 in order to make it but hey, whatever works, right?

Dinner was yummy and PC even managed to inform the waitstaff that we were celebrating a birthday without my looking. Of course, no one could make it to the bathroom and back that rapidly so I wasn’t surprised. But that’s OK. What was really strange, though, was that the server came by about three times and asked if we wanted dessert. Figuring that they’d put the candle on whatever we chose, we decided on a Brownie Sundae. Which they brought IN ADDITION to the slice of Mud Pie with the candle. To tell you the truth, that was a little annoying. There was no way that two people who had just completed a meal could possibly consume two desserts. I hate wasting food. Plus, it was a waste of money.

We saw Juno. I had heard very good things about Juno. And I was not disappointed. PC had heard that it was a movie championed by the Religious Right because it promotes adoption over abortion and wasn’t really interested in seeing it. Major points for taking me!! Plus — he enjoyed it!!

Funny thing, though. When we first see Bleeker’s room, I noticed this hanging on the back of his door.

Thought I was hallucinating but no, there it was again in another scene in his room.

Maybe it’s true. Maybe we really do run Hollywood…

    Oh my… what a beautiful little boy! HaYom Yom Huledet l’Rivster!

    I LOVED the movie, Juno, too! Hubby and I whacked each other at the same time when we saw the aleph bet chart! Great birthday flick! I hope it was a wonderful day!

    Um…says Rob Petrie who was originally meant to be a Jew but that didn’t play so well so he was recast as a WASP with Jewish friends!!!
