Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…

I am twenty-four years old today. Woo.

My parents gave me a sweatshirt (handpainted with a stack of books; I didn’t have the heart to tell Mom she spelled the word “Heroes” wrong in one of the titles), a pair of hand-knitted socks (I collect them) and money to go get myself a massage. Meh. I will wait to see what Michael and his parents have in store for me.

Last year my friend Jeff gave me a $150 bottle of absinthe. Then I accidentally broke it before I could try any. I was seriously pissed off.

    Ah, I remember my 24th birthday. I really didn’t celebrate it that much because I had been to a birthday party the day before for someone else and drank some alcohol laced kool-aid which didn’t hit me until after I had consumed WAY too much. The hangover and the knowledge that I could never speak to those people at the party again pretty much put a damper on any celebrating I had planned for the next day. When my mother called to wish me a happy birthday the next morning, I said I had the flu. Glad those days are behind me.

    Just remember, if you get seriously wasted, drink plenty of water before you go to sleep, even if you feel it will make you vomit. A hangover is your brain feeling the effects of dehydration, so water consumption will lower the intensity of your hangover to something you can manage. This is experence talking.

    Once again, happy birthday.

    Am so sorry I missed your special day yesterday; Hope your birthday was fun-the sweatshirt alone sounds….fascinating! Nice to know you have a mom and dad who love you enough to make such a special treasure for you! Just wear it when you visit them and keep hidden in a drawer at home! 🙂

    Ahhh, 24…geez, I just turned 43 and can not remember what 24 felt like. Oh wait, it felt…young! Enjoy your dewy skin and lack of white hair while ya can!
