My birthday is in 2 days, on Wednesday. I don't like birthdays, not really. I mean yeah it's nice getting cards and presents and a cake just for you, but it makes me feel awkward. I don't like people making a fuss over me. I feel like I'm not worth it. :/ I do love the family dinner party thing, too. I love parties in general, but not when I'm the centerpiece.
(I was That Kid.)
I told Mum that my birthday dinner out should be my present (family birthday tradition: not only do you get the at-home family dinner of your favourite foods, you also get a dinner out at your favourite restaurant). Mum is taking me to one of my fav restaurants ever (Esty Street) and since I know it's expensive and we don't really have any money, I think that is a perfectly nice present and I don't need her to spend too much money on me.
Mum was offended by this.
So today at work I made a Birthday Present List with pictures, and gave it to her when I got home. (Mum's reactions are in purple):
For my birthday, I would like
1.) A big horse
...so I can ride it into battle with
2.) An antique Colt Peacemaker.
["YOU DON'T NEED A GUN."]
3.) I would also like eternal winter.
4.) Stephanie March
["What happened to the magazine I gave you?"]
5.) Jeff Hardy
6.) This fabulous Christian Lacriox dress:
and Lacroix shoes to go with it.
["And wear the hell would you wear them?"]
7.) This first edition of Andreas Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica libri septem.
["It's HOW much?? For a bloody BOOK?!?"]
Seriously, it's only $375,000.00. Just throw it on the AmEx.
Hope you're all having a good start to the week. I feel like a bloated sack of protoplasm since the shore trip, and eating rubbish all weekend. And eating too much today. I want to not eat tomorrow AT ALL. Really badly. And then eat nothing on Wednesday to prep for the birthday dinner. And eat nothing Thursday and Friday to make up for the birthday dinner.
Idk how I'll do with food the next couple days, but will try my best not to go crazier, or collapse in public.
