So I want to thank everybody here who sent happy birthday wishes my way yesterday. You all are awesome!
I can't quite say the same about the actual day, though, unfortunately. It was kind of crummy, actually. If memorable.
One of my aunts passed away that morning. I didn't know her exceptionally well, but I'm still kind of sad. I visited her semi-frequently when I was a kid. (And made good use of her old Playstation to play Spyro games until the wee hours of the morning.) She had brain cancer, so it's not like it was out-of-the-blue and a sudden, complete shock, but... I hope she's at peace now.
Also, I twisted my ankle while out running that afternoon and did a nose dive onto the sidewalk. Friction burns on my knee! Woo-hoo!
Aaaand, my poor kitty, bless her, managed to get herself tangled up in the strings from some balloons my mom had bought and went ripping and tearing down the hallway trying to escape their evil clutches. (I didn't actually see the incident, just heard it.) Anyway, long story short, she broke a bone in her foot and now has to wear a little pink cast so her foot can heal. Poor thing doesn't like the cast, and she looks so pathetic hobbling around all uncoordinated. I just want to hug her and comfort her forever.
Thankfully, there were some good things amidst all the bad: I got to have dinner in a nice restaurant with my family, my parents got me a super cool black messenger bag for my laptop, and I got to eat angel food cake. A LOT of angel food cake.
And of course, all you guys filling my profile page with birthday wishes and awesome emoticons and other graphics.
Seriously, you guys really did a lot to make my day so much better than it was(n't). So again, THANK YOU!!
Yep, so that was my day. Yee-haw. Here's to a better one next year! xD
