Party pigs

Happy birthday to me
Happy birthday to us
Happy birthday dear party pigs
We love all this fuss

That was the song my grandfather sang for my birthday growing up. I have no idea where it came from (I thought it was from a book). I tried googling it to no avail. But to me, it's the birthday song.

I have never cared so little about the arrival of a birthday. Generally, I'm not one of those people that demands a big deal be made regarding her birthday. But I usually am at least vaguely aware that it's coming and consider planning something (or hope someone else does so). But, honestly, this year I just don't care. Maybe it's because I'm now 31, which seems like one of those who-gives-a-shit ages. You're just another year older. Or maybe I just have other things on my mind. I wonder if my family will even remember.

Happy bithday!

Even though it sounds like -- this year anyway -- you're not exactly loving all the fuss, such as it is.

Happy Birthday, I hope it's a great one. Every birthday is important even if they're a quiet one :-) (NCLM)

I turned 31 this year as well, while pregnant, and also didn't feel like doing anything at all for it. I was happy to just let this one go.

Even so, happy birthday!

(By the way -- thanks for your comment on Israeli security -- it's funny, because I was last there in '99 as well, and everything I told my husband to expect was conditioned with "but that was before the second intifada, so....")

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Even if you're not in the come-to-my-party mood, it's still a wonderful day!

I'm coming up on my 31st next month. I've decided that since this should be the last birthday that I celebrate without children, that I'm going to be a spoiled brat about it. THROW ME A PARTY! ;-)

Happy Birthday, K... I hope it's way more than you expected.

Are your ribs getting pressed yet? Mine are, and it's no fun.

Should I wish you a sorta happy birthday? I really do understand how you feel, though.

Happy belated b-day! What a great adaptation of the traditional song love it!

I loved your post about your dad and since I am around your age, the pics came me laugh, like mine do- man the 70's were funkalicious!

You are lucky to have such a great dad and thankfully I am too! See ya round, glad I found your blog today.
