Why I Hate This Day

[blog Dysgyzed] isn't going to leave me alone until I make a birthday post. So, as I dread this day coming around every year and have a bad attitude towards it, I figured I would share some of the rich history of my birthdays during my adult life.

1980: I go out to the car to go to work. I have a flat tire. They don't believe me because it is my birthday. Heh.

1981: I go out with friends. Hit a pothole, the universal bar bends, I have to drive 50 miles home in second gear.

1982: A few days before, I got my oil checked and filled at a gas station outside the Holland Tunnel. He didn't put the cap back on the crankcase. So when the oil light came on, I didn't think anything of it, I figured it was a short, lights went on in that car for no good reason. Heh. The engine blew on this day.

So I stop driving on this day, just to make sure nothing really bad happens. Minor things happen, nothing newsworthy until...

1987: "I can't see you anymore. By the way, have you met (name deleted)? We're getting married and it would be nice if you'd come."

1988: I wake up with a dreadful pain under my left arm. It's my very first boil! The size of a baseball cut in half. Two weeks of that damned thing before it could be lanced, I still have the scar.

1995: My mother dies a week before my birthday. Well, a week and a day.

2000: The big 4-0. No one remembers. No one really cares. Even my sister forgets.

2001: A week before my birthday, another fucktard guy. This one I find out is writing to one of my other handles at the time. One who was to weed out sickos. One who started to get even at a practical joke someone played on me. She really likes dogs. Seems, so does this guy I'm dating.

2004: A tooth breaks, out of the blue. It has to be extracted. Painfully. Even with gas and novocaine, it hurts. No cake, no ice cream. Just a mouth with a hole that refuses to clot for 5 hours and the taste of blood and cotton. And no pain killers either. "Just take ibuprofen." Just take ibuprofen my ass. I needed codeine. I was on soft foods for a week.

I've blocked out last year. I don't remember if anything happened or didn't happen. I know I did sit home alone, as I'm doing this year. My ankle is still in no condition for me to do anything that isn't necessary. I'm afraid if I even cross the street, I'm going to get hit by a bus or SUV. Or abducted by aliens.

Oh well. Maybe the Netflix that were supposed to arrive yesterday will show today and I'll at least have those tonight.

Oh yeah, something I forgot...

When I was working at Macy's EVERY SINGLE FUCKING YEAR ON MY BIRTHDAY what did they drag out to rush the season? SINGING SANTAS! Where did they put them? AT THE EDGE OF MY DEPARTMENT!

Every fucking year, I had to start listening to "Jingle Bell Rock" for the next six months!

Try to have a good one. If your movies dont't ship today they are running horror movies on Sci Fi channel.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 2:23 pm:
The movies did get here, I was too wiped to watch them. And today, it's a Twilight Zone marathon on Sci-Fi!

Happy birthday.

I wonder if my future birthdays will be as eventful as yours seem to be? I should hope not.

On my last birthday, I had to get the oil changed and the serpentine belt replaced in my car. Ouch!!!

On one a few years ago, my brother wrecked my mom's car, showing off for his female friends.

Those are the only ones I could think of. The others went ok.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 2:24 pm:
Oh, I hope your birthdays remain uneventful. I truly do.

Well, I won't say it. I'll just say that I'm glad you were born, and that I really appreciate what you leave here for me to read. Hugs, and may you be abducted by an alien that looks like Superman.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 2:27 pm:
Thanks Kelli. Sadly, no aliens. Of any kind. So no implants and my kidneys are intact.

Happy Birthday, Ann.

I hope you stay inside and rest your ankle, hopefully take it easy.

Make sure you get something to eat.

Don't get caught outside in the heat, esp with the crowds this weekend.

Yes, Dysgyzed made sure everyone knew ahead of time.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 2:35 pm:
Yes, mother, er, I mean Div. I ate breakfast. I was too exhausted for dinner. I waited until it was under 85 to go outside. No crowds in town, as everyone has gone to the shore. I rested my ankle most of the day.

Yeah, but haven't you noticed, when you work your birthday or major holidays, the people you have to deal with are twice as nasty?

Well, because you were born I can say you've made this place more interesting...and [blog fastfifties] sent me. And I thought for old times sake I'd sing this for you...

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell
jingle bell
jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time
it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse
pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell

That's the jingle bell
That's the jingle bell rock

I hope you have a great day....and I hope you don't kill me!!...

I didn't hear it from Dys...but JOE made sure I knew, by plastering it on HIS blog.... {He did say to make sure he got full credit/blame on there! I hear HIS b'day is coming up soon....}

I'm with the person that said just pick another day if the day you have it on isn't 'working' for you. Quite doable, in my opinion. Hope you have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 2:42 pm:
Thank you, Baroness. It wasn't a fun day, but everyone here made me feel better.

Thank you, Lianna. That reminds me, buy a detachable penis. The ones that are attached that I meet are turning out to be jerks.

Eh, ya know what, it would have been my dad's 73rd B-day today. Although yes, b-days are sometimes overrated, be comforted by this...

My dad passed away less than 12 hours after my 17th b-day and subsequently caused me to not celebrate for the past 8 years.

Though you may have had some crazy odd b-day events (minus the f-ing christmas stuff that's just nuts!) just know there are other people out there who feel the same.

OR think of it this way. Yes the 4th may be in a few days...but see it as everyone gets to celebrate WITH you on your b-day b/c of all the fireworks (unless you hate fireworks) and parties!

Ya know what though? Let's just settle back with some nice cold drinks and have a good laugh at things and maybe enjoy the fireworks some I'm stuck at home b/c of work while my friends and boyfriend have a 2 day party without me(and it's b/c they don't want to go to work with hangovers...wussies).

N E ways...Happy b-day Ann! Many many more to celebrate!

I'm leaving the site end of March. To those who want to keep in touch, see blog for details.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 3:05 pm:
I'm so sorry to hear that. Before my mother died, my father had already had her sign a card for me, as she was in the hospital and wasn't getting out anytime soon. Her death was a shock to the staff too. But he insisted on giving me that card on my birthday. Which was kind of sweet, but disturbing at the same time.

Yes, the fourth is coming and the idiot kids with the ground crawlers have been in the parking lot across the street every night for the past week. Late at night. I managed to sleep through it last night. I didn't even know until this afternoon that for my birthday, the Governor shut down the state until further notice! I wonder if this means there are no state police on the interstates for the holiday... Damn. No car. I can't drive 150 with no fear.

I like to think that Canada celebrates my birthday. Screw Victoria Day! It's really Miss Ann Day and they just don't know it!

Thanks popmuse. I hope your birthdays get better with time, too.

Hey we have somethin else in common, I have bad B-days too, every one between 7 and 24 I broke somethin "ON ME" bones that is. Once I quit having them I quite breaking bones too LOL so I won't say those dreaded words. just glad you're here

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 3:14 pm:
Thanks cru. My only broken bones were hairline fractures in my right foot, Memorial Day weekend, 2002. When anyone who could have taken me to the hospital, or even picked me up was out of town. I can't even imagine going through that every year. But I am curious as to how you managed that every year.

Birthdays are a bitch. I love to spoil people on their birthdays, but when mine rolls around, ppphhhhffffttttt. Oh well.

Have an uneventful day.

MissAnnThrope replies on 7/2/2006 3:15 pm:
Yep. I used to do the same thing. These days, I just send virtual crack. But does anyone ever send me any?
