Another time around the sun

April 27th, 2009

Today is what my friend MC calls “Welcome-to-the-world Day”. Does 34 mean I’m officially in my ‘mid-30s’? Eeep! Really though, there’s a ton in store for this next year — all very exciting stuff. I’ll surely blab all about it here :)

A few fun birthday facts:

  • I share the same birthday as Sheena Easton. This is annoyingly fitting: her “Morning Train” song is one that I too often get stuck in my head for days.
  • I was born at 6-something-A.M. on a Sunday. This is ridiculously not fitting: as indicated in the pic above, I am and have never been a morning person, especially on a weekend.
  • Some of my favourite childhood memories are the b-day parties my parents put on for us kids, especially the homemade piñatas my Dad put together.
  • I was born in the year of the Rabbit, something I shared with my Grandmother whom I was named after. Her husband (my Grandfather) was a Monkey, and so is John; I find this amazing, and also somehow comforting. I just know my grandparents and John would’ve liked each other.

When’s your b-day, and do you have any arbitrary related fun facts?

Postscript — As some of you already know, my sister (whose b-day is on Wednesday!) and I are having a giveaway; you’ve got until 11:59 P.M. tonight to enter. We’ll draw SIX winners and announce them tomorrow!

Post-postscript — May as well torture you too, since I can’t get this out of my head now:
