My Birthday on Thursday

Yes, boys and girls, Thursday, December 20th, 2012 will be my birthday and I’ll turn 56 years old. The bad thing about these ages is that when I used to be 54, I’d backwards it and say 45. But I couldn’t do that at 55 since they stay the same, and for sure I won’t be doing it at 56, cuz that would make it 65. So the aging thing is not giving me a good lying about my age opportunity. I guess the bad thing too is that I probably now look my age – kinda depressing since I used to look younger than my age.

Aside from that, Christmas is coming up and I’m buying nothing for anyone. Mostly my reason is because throughout the year I end up buying all kinds of things for all kinds of people, so because there’s no reason for me to be buying for them, I end up saying, ‘ok, that’s your Christmas present’. Too bad some people get a bunch more stuff than other people, but I guess they should be happy they got anything for free for no reason.

Today I had my computer guy come over because I had him installed Windows 8 and reformat my computer since it was running slowly. However, in that time Windows 8 seems to have disappeared at times and put me back at Windows 7. For some reason there’s a computer issue happening and I don’t know why. So this time he’s told me what to do if it happens yet again, so he doesn’t have to come over and fix me up. I’m just hoping that it doesn’t happen again – cuz WyTF does it happen?

Anyway, that’s it for me. At the end of this month I finish my chemo after a year of being on chemo. I guess we’ll find out what happens when I’m not on chemo. Kind of a scary thought to me, but I’m hoping at the very least that my body (and brain) feel better than they did on all the drugs. Please, please, please, let me feel good next year regardless of brain cancer and I’ll take that as my birthday present :razz:

    Well, since you brought it up already, I’ll take this opportunity to wish you a wonderful birthday and a relaxing Christmas! (I was going to wait until the proper date.)

    My parents had apparently discussed that we would do the no-presents Christmas this year (because my sister and I are no kids anymore), but just guess if my Dad’s actually able to follow through something like that… nope. I only asked for one thing, though, (Halo 4) but then he kept digging for more wishes. Sigh. It’s so difficult to buy something for my parents because they (especially Dad) usually go and buy whatever they need/want, whenever they need/want it.

    Bestest luck for next year! Looking forward to updates.

  2. Hey jafer… just got caught up on the past three years of idiot on a stick. Wow. I hope 2013 is treating you well.
