Happy Birthday to Me!

Tonight I was going to post a lovely Bill Pullman/Bill Paxton quiz I'm working on when I suddenly realized that most of you will read this tomorrow which is my birthday. I knew you would be much too distracted trying to construct the perfect happy birthday comment to be bothered with Bill Pullman-Paxton nonsense.

Since my last official birthday was in 2004 when I turned 49, I still haven't decided on my exact age. You may choose from the following:
  • The "3rd anniversary of my 49th birthday"
  • My "49 plus 3" birthday
  • My "Reverso Birthday Age" of 46*

* Subtract a year each year since I turned 49. It's physics. You wouldn't understand.

29!! It's the same when I do the math on my age. Happy B-day!

TexasGal said...

Tough One! But if I have to choose I'd pick the last one, Reverso - 46.

Larry Jones said...

Happy Birthday, baby! Your age doesn't matter at all.

Jen T. (soon to be E.) said...

Aging is for mere mortals. :) Happy birthday!!!!

I like reverso. That means on Sept 28, when I turn 46 we'll be the same age and we can tell people we're twins...LOL

I, too, have elected to employ el reverso when I've decided that I am as old as I want to get.

Happy Birthday! Next year we should plan a two-week long party stretching from my birthday to yours. We can start at the beach, move it to New Orleans for a while and then on to Vegas! People can just join the party along the way and stay as long as they want!
