birthday preparations...




In six more days I'm turning 19 for the eighth year in a row. I am actually quite happy about it, though I am pretty sure that the reason for my joy has more to do with the fact that it is a long weekend and I am going away rather than the actual birthday itself. Also the fact that I've been opening birthday presents for a week now doesn't hurt either ;)

In standard Annush M.O. I am going to have two birthday soirees and random events to follow: the soiree in New York (Thursday night) and the one in Santo Domingo (Saturday night). Then on Sunday a lazy day at the beach, and then next week the raspberry tiramisu party...

...it will be good :)

The thing that's really bothering me about my NY birthday celebration is that due to the long weekend most people will be away and what could have been a REALLY good party will end up being a very upbeat, albeit small, gathering. Happens every year. It's kinda sad in a way. As if it's not bad enough that my NY friends make a small pocentage of my friends in general, I can only have a fraction of them together at the same time. So sad!

But whatever. I'll go out, I'll have fun and it will be great. At least I know for a fact that my two best and oldest friends (Dan and Kristhina) will be there with me making sure I have a damn good time. Everyone else will be a welcome addition and all of those who won't be able to make it will certainly be missed.

As usual, I won't have that kind of problems with the Saturday night soiree ;)

Nobody ever says no to a day at the beach, and next week, we'll have my raspberry tiramisu party.

I have spent the past week all bummed out about the ghosts of birthdays past and I failed to notice just how lucky I am...indeed, lucky I am.

RDA and my pot stirring self cannot be in NY for the big bash so we will lung a fatty in your name. Happy anniversary of your 19th. By the way there is nothing wrong about getting old only a selected few are allowed to anyway.

I agree with pirate. No problem getting older - the alternative sucks.
I hope you have a wonderful repeat 19th!! I know what you mean about people being away on your birthday every year because my daughter just turned 19 (for the first time) yesterday and we've always gone through the same thing trying to organize parties for her.

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy mi pequeña amiga bonita.

Speaking of your birthday. I was at Boyfriend's yesterday, and your little sis was picking pics for her 15th birthday party video (next year). And yes... I saw you in the pics with that late 80's / early 90's look (you weren't chubby as you said!)

Well, I think you're really turning 19 this year. :)

Hugs from Santo Domingo, DR

I'm SOOO jealous that you get to spend your 19th on the beach in the DR... I've always loved visiting the DR.

Have a great B-day Annush! I'll have a drink for you at the cottage.
