Birthday Poll
Today is my birthday. I am 32 now. To be honest, I'm not really all that thrilled about this birthday, and I'm tired of constantly growing older, year after year after year.

However, friends are what make our time here worthwhile. So, in an effort to feel a bit better, I'm blatantly stealing an idea from cynnerth. I'm asking all of my friends (and anybody else who comes by) to please indulge me by filling out this extremely narcissistic poll -- and hopefully thereby making me feel better about my ancientness.

You don't even have to fill out the whole poll if you don't want to...I mostly just like the idea of a bunch of people wishing me a happy birthday. That would be awfully swell of you.

Poll #140764 Renniekins' Birthday Poll

First, the easy part.

Have a happy birthday!
4(12.9%)
...and many more!

Do you think I'm old now?

Please tell me something you like about me.

Tell me something I should aim to improve about myself this coming year.

What is your birthday wish for me?

If you could give me anything at all, what would it be?

What would you like to say to me today?

What have you always wished somebody would give to you or do for you on your birthday?

And finally (fair's fair), do you have any questions for me?

Thank you!

You're welcome.

Birthdays

So what are you doing for your birthday?

Do you want to go see Great Big Sea on July 12th?
I already have a ticket!

Is Siri Girl that person with the great set of lungs who beat us at underwater spinning albeit only by holding her nose?

Re: Birthdays

Yes, that was me with the killer lungs. I have an official sluggy journal that I never update at trillfreelance. I really should update that...

anyways, how you doing?

Re: Birthdays

Pretty Good

I ran a convention at the library where I work called GenreCon.

We had 2 Horror, 2 Mystery and 1 SF author no comic people yet.

We had our annual Stilyagi picnic last weekend in about 50 degree weather with a high windchill and we started planning our next Confusion which will be our 30th one.

Last night I went to see a local blues/rock combo called Wilson/Getty and ended up partying with a trio of 20 something women fresh out of university.

Thats all for now.

What's new with you?

Re: Birthdays

I worked, then ice skated, then had ice cream, then had dinner. I will post about it in a bit. It ended up being a much nicer birthday than I expected it to be.

Perhaps....I have it entered on my calendar with a ?, I need to see if C wants to do it too!

Yes, that's her allright!

btw, you are younger than my wife;)

Yay! Thanks for filling out my poll.... ***hug!***

Hmmm, I didn't get to take the poll. However, happy 2 to the power of 5! Now you are finally old enough for people older than you to take you seriously, and yet young enough to enjoy life vigorously. This is a very good age.

Thank you very much! 'tis a good point....thanks. (:
