Here I am! Still alive and able to process coherent thought 55% of the time!

Thank you to all of you who left me good wishes as I rapidly descend into the pit of senility turn another year older.

My current Twitter status is this: Hey, now that I'm old and senile, wanna trade dentures? I'll even wipe mine off first, if you want.

To describe part of what I did today, I'm going to copy and paste this e-mail I sent to Morgen a few minutes ago:

I've had a good birthday; nice and peaceful.
Mom and Dad took me to Olive Garden, and it was soooo goooood.
Everything was nice. The service, the food, everything. I had that new "mezzaluna" (half-moon) pasta. It's half-circle ravioli stuffed with melty cheeses and covered in a yummy sauce (garlic, cream, white wine, ooooohhhhhh.) with shrimp. Mom's was the same mezzaluna pasta but she got the sausage version. I tried a piece of the sausage and it was heavenly.
For dessert I had that "black tie" cheesecake torte layered thingy. Wow. Like all the chocolate in the world, exploding in your mouth all at once. OMG.
Highly recommended. :)

And..... yes..... the employees simply had to come over and clap while singing their birthday tribute song loud enough for the whole universe to hear. LOL. Embarrassing yet still somewhat fun, in a "shoot me now" kind of way.

I had a good day. :)

Speaking of embarrassing, check out this bozo's idea of a Happy Birthday song. I mean, is he crazy? Stupid? Bored?

(putting in the right link this time :)

Happy Happy JannaDay!!

My daughter's favorite dessert is the black tie cheesecake - she'll take 1/2 her meal home just so she can have dessert there.

Have an amazing year...and a wonderful life! (Not necessarily like the movie of same name, but wonderful the same)

I'm glad you had a great day and may your days be filled with "hot chocolate!"

Glad you had a good day! I am a huge Olive Garden fan.

I was thinking about you the other day when I saw a commercial for Burger King's new "Angry Whopper". Supposed to be really hot. Have you tried it yet? I want to hear if it's really as hot as they say!!!

Happy Happy B-day, Janna! You won't know senility til you get to be my age! Stop whining! :)

As a woman who welcomed 41 on the 8th with open arms, I can only say this... women are like a fine wine or cognac or whatever your poison may be. And like them, we only get better with time, unlike men who seem to regress to the Ice Age and fail to remember that women are the superior beings! ;)

I hope your birthday was brilliant!

Don't push 40 away. Embrace her, and you'll see that life truly does get better with age. ;)

Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday!! Sorry I'm late. I barely heard the singing and thought it was my nephew watching Teletubbies.

Travis said...

I haven't been to Olive Garden in ages. Happy Birthday!

Janna said...

Travis: Thank you!
