I don't hate my birthdays, but I hate the expectation that I celebrate them in ways that overwhelm me (i.e. by gathering with a large group of people, in a loud, brightly lit and chaotic atmosphere, where I'm not supposed to disappear because it's "my" birthday party.....).

I hope you have an ordinary day, and that it's enjoyable for what it is.

Have the remainder of an noneventful day following your usual routine, encapuzado.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NILES CRANE! :jester: :mrgreen: :alien: :pig: :sunny: :cat: :flower: :farao: :joker: :queen: :king: :brilsmurf: :smurf: :smurfin: :bigsmurf: :elephant: :dwarf: :nemo: :fish: :colors: :elephant: :rabbit: :pr: :pl: :cheers:

To both of you born on this day, according to my fortune-telling birthday book:

October 1: You can adapt yourself to circumstances and environment, but you enjoy luxury and ease. You are sociable, magnetic, and a loyal friend, and you possess a happy disposition. You are idealistic and sensitive, and you like music and art and derive much pleasure from both. Do not marry in haste. <-- [This book appears to be from the 1940s so you can ignore the marrying part if you want.]

Just another thing that I hate and have forgotten until it happened at night:

- Phone callings just to say happy birthday. "Lots of health, wealth, peace and love in your life"

Don't like phones.

Its my birthday today.
I am not big on them at all, it seems that its more for other people.
I don't like all the attention, the phone calls from relatives that i dont speak to all year is very pointless.
My mum just rang and i answered gruffly "What to you want ! !!" - she thought that was hilarious - it wasn't really a joke.
A friend of mine has insisted on taking me to the mall to get me a present - the mall is my most hated place on earth.
Oh well i am going anyway cause its just to make them feel good and my birthday is no big deal to me so its not like i want to do other better stuff on this day.
my daughter did paint me a brilliant picture - now that was awesome - I love real gifts that people actually spend time on rather than just go out and buy something for the sake of it.
Ill do my best to have a relaxing, low key birthday,
