Hello, my name is Jean and I am 57 years old...

today.

Not a bad day at all.

My boss baked a birthday cake for me.
One of my best friends gave me a book about Tennessee.
At the end of our shift, another co-worker gave me a birthday
card that all my co-workers signed.
Took myself to a wonderful restaurant for dinner and margaritas.
Got several phone calls and emails from siblings and friends.
Bought and watched the movie 'No Country For Old Men'...
loved it.
Bought and started reading a book Sparrow recommended a
while back, 'Eat, Pray, Love'... love it.
Found out I'm going to get flowers tomorrow from a very special friend.

A day full of love and good wishes. What more could a woman want?
ok, ok... a really good lay would have been the candle on the cake.
Maybe next year.



ooooohh... almost forgot.
GOT AN EMAIL FROM THE PROSPECTIVE EMPLOYER
IN TENNESSEE.
THEY WANT TO SET UP A PHONE INTERVIEW!!!!
ASKED WHEN I MIGHT BE WILLING TO RELOCATE!

What a birthday, eh?

AHA!
Actually, I remembered it being March....and, of course, that you're an older woman....more experienced and sophisticated and all, but, I forgot the actual date. 13? Gosh, how lucky!
Well, at least as far as getting you into Tennessee!

Erica said...

Have a wonderful rest of your birthday...and may every day for the rest of your life be just as wonderful, but with lots of awesome, hot, sweaty, aggressive, bedpost thrashing nookie that lasts a really, really long time.

Jean said...

Berry, you schmoozed your way through that one :-)
Next year it will be on Friday the 13th. Those are always good ones too!

Erica - HA!...that is one of the, if not THE, best birthday wish I ever got!

Jean said...

p.s.
Berry, it was sweet of you to remember! Please let me know how your show goes this weekend, k?

Joan of Argghh! said...

Bedpost-thrashing nookie... yeah, definitely a good wish. Make it a two-fer, why be stingy with a birfday wish?

Many, many happy returns of the day!

ps - a good lay is not something to be saved just for birthdays...like the good china...if you don't use it...you'll eventually die with it all intact ;)

Once again, late to the party, but I hope you had a very happy birthday, and that your telephone interview went spectacularly!

Please email me your address so I can send you some Jones maple syrup!

The phone interview hasn't been scheduled yet, Lee... hoping for this week.
Thanks for the good wishes. Good to see you peek out of the bushes once in a while!

Jones maple syrup? oh, yummmm!
