If a tree falls....

I have just had a birthday. Try as I might to not want to acknowledge them (advice given by Absum), I fear I must always give a passing nod to the renewing of another year of existence.

As opposed to New Year's, I do tend to use birthdays to take stock of my life and make resolutions for the coming year. This year, I would like to
(and in no particular preference or order):
- buy a property
- clear my credit card debt (did I mention realism in any of these?)
- investigate ovarian tissue freezing and begin the required drugs if able
- undertake and pass exams in music/singing
- see more movies
- read some great works of fiction and not just commercial pap
- get a fabulous relationship (hmm, tried this one last year... but can't beat a girl for trying)

So how did I celebrate my birthday? Well, not very well I have to say. Most of my friends were either otherwise occupied with prior plans or just plain forgot. Although I have to congratulate one girlfriend on remembering and not only sending a gift from interstate, but calling as well. Her only downfall is that she thought that I was a year older than I am! My birthday evening saw me at home, cooking dinner from whatever was available in the freezer and dismissing the advances of a recent date (#1).

It then begs the question, if one fails to properly acknowledge a birthday - could one pretend it didn't happen?

Argh! Guilty, I forgot your birthday! Sorry, Cath... Anyway, I hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable one.

I have a question though: Why isn't "get a cat" on the list?

Can I suggest changing "cat" to "Boston Terrier Size of a cat, short haired like a cat - but this one you can take out walking and I kid you not - people will cross the road to come and say hello.

Sorry Miss C, I am a little preoccupied at the moment and have no diary with me, hence I did not send a HAPPY BIRTHDAY. But please take this as a heartfelt one anyhow. Pear.
