It's My Party, I Can Sleep If I Want To

Things to do on your 41st birthday:
  • Wake up at 7am, but only because the cats haven't caught on to the idea of a time change.
  • Go back to bed after feeding said cats. And the dog. And the birds.
  • Wake up to your phone ringing a few times. Ignore it.
  • Wake up because someone is knocking on the door. Find out that Ponch (aka "Hot" of "Hot & Hotter") is on the porch asking if today would be a good day to fix the hole in the overhang.
  • Make up some lame-ass excuse to explain the fact that it's 1:30 in the afternoon and you've obviously just woken up.
  • Do the dishes.
  • Eat some leftover Halloween candy.
  • Read.
  • Make pumpkin curry. Meh. Maybe it wasn't very good because of the three ingredients that weren't at the store. Or maybe it just wasn't a great recipe.
  • Read twenty variations of "Happy Birthday" written on your Facebook wall.
  • Read some more.
  • Bake the pumpkin seeds with cinnamon, sugar, and pumpkin pie spice. Decide that you like plain salt better.
  • Continue reading.
  • Consider going back to bed.
Yep, another pretty exciting day.

Happy belated birthday! Too bad about the pumpkin curry, I've got a good recipe if you ever want to try it again.

Thanks, AFM. I'll take you up on the pumpkin curry recipe since I'm sure I'll get another pumpkin in my veggie box...

too bad you don't get bacon, you could make 'bacon jam':

I think what you meant to say was "too bad you don't have standards, you could make 'bacon jam'."

That would be disgusting, even if I ate meat.
