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. 😉
