Birthday (Blues?)...

Why my birthday is a happy one!
Yikes-a-bee! Today is my birthday and I've gotta admit that I'm feeling a little bluesy about birthdays now that I'm thirty seven -- I can no longer honestly say that I'm in my mid-thirties anymore! But, since a fun day has been planned (lunch and a movie with my hubby, sans the rugrat!) and a red velvet birthday cake made by my fabulous mom-in-law, I've decided not to dwell on what really is just a number...
With no card to share (pretty much all my crafting supplies are sitting in a warehouse in Jersey right now until our new apartment in San Francisco is ready), I thought I would share ten things you may not know about me from the last thirty seven years of my life...
  1. I've moved four times in the last four years, all the way from one coast to the other and back -- and I'm not married to a military man, so I'm scratching my head about it!
  2. Places I have worked: a radio repair shop (my first job!), a dormitory, a theatre, a publishing house, a literary agency, a library (my favorite!), a notary company (my least favorite!)
  3. My son's birth story was published in Pregnancy magazine. I still love seeing his sweet face in print!
  4. I've been married to my college sweetheart for nearly 13 years, though we've been together for nearly 20. I'm looking forward to the next twenty.
  5. I absolutely refuse to eat these foods: celery, alfalfa sprouts or rye bread. The first tastes like wet straw, the second like dirt, and the last gives me hives.
  6. I once sold Brad Pitt theatre tickets (alas, he wasn't nearly as cute as I thought he would be!)
  7. I wish I'd gone to art school, but I don't regret not going.
  8. I think Twitter is the beginning of the end of the civilized world (sorry, all you Tweeters!)
  9. My current favorite commercial is for Joe's Crab Shack -- for some reason I think it's really funny when the woman gets hit by the giant crab claw!
  10. I am extraordinarly good at using scissors and if I could figure out a job that requires that skill, I'd be set!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is as happy as mine!

Hi Stampin Bean (aka Regina),
Now this is really interesting...my name is also Regina, I live in Massachusetts (I have travelled, but always come back to the East Coast,) and MY birthday is TODAY too!!! (I'm not 37...) I also don't have your skills, but I do enjoy being inspired by your lovely creations.

Wishing you a fabulous day and a wonderful, joy-full year ahead!!

Happy Birthday, Regina. Thanks for those 10 things about you. I agree with you on the twitter thing and I like Brad Pitt - but I always figured he'd be just average looking in person :)
