TWENTY SIX

Happy Birthday to ME. Happy Birthday to ME. I somehow survived for 26 yea-rs. Happy Birthday to ME. Gee it feels good to spend the first moments of my birthday blogging. Yes, that is a lie. I don't know why in the hell I'm even home right now. I should have gone to Brooklyn to watch an old friend's jazz trio play but for some reason I can't get myself out of my apartment tonight.

My birthday party was in Central Park Sunday. A lot of friends came out and we had a good time prancing about the park for a few hours. It was lovely weather until that random set of clouds rolled in and rained for fifteen minutes. That was odd. Then it went right back to being beautiful. My favorite picture of the day is from my sad attempt to do a hand stand. Awesomeness.




We rocked it on out we did.



My dad sent me an e-card for my birthday. He is the best.



Ha ha ha. I guess he would know. He was there.

Happy Birthday!!!

Only 4 more years until you hit the birthdays that count! OK ... they all count ... but I want to see that handstand when you are 46! And I bet you'll be doing it!

happy birthday!

even if you had trouble getting the handstand down, you manage to look fantastic doing it --- THAT is an accomplishment in itself. most people look ridiculous.

e-card = amazing. therefore your dad = amazing.

happy birthday!

26 was my most favorite year ever. Take advantage of it and celebrate for the whole month. ;)

Awesome handstand.

Happy Birthday!

Looks like you had a great time. I would'a been there, but that damn Tink never showed up here to pick me up like she promised. You just can't count on some people I guess... :P

Jay said...

I hope you don't mind if I add that picture to my very inappropriate collection of photos of you on my wall?

HA! I could totally make my own SomeEcards. LOL ;-)

For some reason I was thinking that your birthday was tomorrow otherwise I would have given you a birthday shout-out on the blog today. So, I will tomorrow, which will actually be posted tonight, so it won't really be late, right?

Anyway, Happy Birthday gorgeous!

g-man said...

Ha, I do like your dad's sense of humor. Glad you had fun in the park. :) Enjoy 26.

Mike said...

Hi, you don't know me I just surfed my way into your blog, but let me say "HAPPY BIRTDAY TO US" because June 2nd is my birthday too. I hope you enjoy 26 as much as I'm enjoying [cough] 60. Burn your candles at both ends and enjoy being young!

Came over from Jay's to wish you a Happy belated Birthday. But, I do hope you're still celebrating. You know the rule: if your birthday falls on a weekday, you have full rights to celebrate the weekend prior to it until the weekend after it. :-)
