let's have a birthday recap

i've learnt to realise that sometimes the "problem" with starting celebrations of your birthday early is that when the actual day rolls along, not many people actually remember it.

it was really sweet of my (now ex) party girl to text me right at the stroke of midnight despite being half a world (and timezone) away. she said that she wanted to call but ran outta credits. but i did have long distance calls from my good friend (the one who is going through a divorce) and another friend who i met through another friend and have been getting closer to her lately (mainly 'coz i found out that she's interested in attending the kind of work events i do and also 'coz work had me making relatively frequent flights to where she's currently based for work). while my best friend did not call me long distance, i did get a text from her bright and early in the morning.

and of 'coz the online social utility site is awesome as it broadcasts one's birthday to the world at large hence ensuing that i had a whole array of birthday wishes. still, it's nice.

anticipating a busy day in the office, i didn't take a day off. i was greeted with birthday wishes and had a card and cake presented by the company as well as a gift from my immediate boss. she's lovely. i really like her.

after a busy day at work, i headed out for dinner with the alpha boy. my joking suggestion of "are you going to get me flowers?" was met with a "i couldn't find a shop" when we saw each other. we went dutch for dinner (which okay fine, he did spend a fair bit already on friday). we did nothing else.

it was like any other day, only i suppose it wasn't exactly supposed to be...

just another normal day on your birthday huh?
every year, somehow i think rainbows and unicorns will come out and celebrate with me for my birthday but that only sets me up for failure.
Well, at least you got a lot of greetings and wishes. It's the thought that counts.
By the way, August birthdays rule.
