My Birthday List

My birthday is a week from today.  Usually this means that I create a list of presents that I would like to receive on that day and send it to my family, giving them their second biggest laugh of the year (their first biggest laugh is my Christmas list).  Of course, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve only made these lists so that people who are already planning on getting me something have an easier time shopping for me.  And, the lists have gotten smaller (though perhaps more expensive?).

This year, my list is very simple: I don’t want anything.  Sure, you can send me a card, but apart from a high-paying, enjoyable job, and a wonderful girlfriend (and more friends) to spend some time with, there’s nothing that I really need (well, I don’t NEED a girlfriend, either, though I certainly want one–but I have to find a way to support myself, first), and certainly nothing in the way of material possessions.  As it so happens, though, one of my friends (and fellow bloggers) will be walking for the March of Dimes on May 8th.  So, if any of you out there want to celebrate my birthday in a meaningful way (or just want to support a good cause), I’d suggest sponsoring my friend, or donating money to the March of Dimes.  That’s all I really want for my birthday.

Oh, and this CD. πŸ˜‰

  1. Let me hasten to wish you a happy birthday in advance lest you announce that you don't want to be wished either! AND the materialisation of some of your Dreams of Literary Grandeur!

  2. I think your walk was originally scheduled to be on my birthday (which is why I got the idea to do this), but since it's now a couple weeks later, that gives people more time to donate. I might be making a contribution, myself, but it depends on how generous my readers are (hint, hint). πŸ™‚

  3. Well, since you've said it's alright to wish you happy birthday, then Happy Birthday! {Early though it may be!}I am a little curious… why do your wishlists get laughed at? πŸ˜›

  4. Because of what's on them. One year for Christmas I printed out photos of the exact CDs (conductor, composer, work, singers–if any), video games, and books that I wanted alongside their descriptions. Also, I think the length or price of the items might have something to do with it, too. πŸ˜‰
