"Go, go, go, go
Go, go, go shawty
It's your birthday
We gon' party like it's yo birthday
We gon' sip Bacardi like it's your birthday
And you know we don't give a f**k"
It's not your birthday!"
IF MARCH 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Everything seems to happen at once this year! This creates an atmosphere of excitement, which is what you live for! Your new attitude brings a shift in your finances next month. Another positive influence is introduced in May, most likely in the form of romance, but this could also be a teacher. Lucky love signs are Cancer and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are 2, 14, 39, 6 and 35.
Now back to dealing with selfish teenagers who won't go to bed. Beau and Phil aren't getting along. I think maybe they're just burnt out on being stuck together in a little room and not getting enough sleep. Or it could be that Beau is spoiled, (Hmm, whose fault would that be?) and expects his smart pal to do all kinds of computer stuff for him, and Phil is older and wants to get out and do other stuff.
I always think about my birth mother on my birthday. I've always felt like we were connected on this day, like she remembers and perhaps thinks of me, at least on this one day out of the year.
I was searching for notable people who share my birthday -- people who are born on March 29 -- and came up with the usual list; Lucy Lawless, Elle McPherson, John Popper... and then I found Karen Ann Quinlan. Is anyone around here old enough to remember her? I used to think about her a lot when I was young, something about her story really tugged at my heart way back then, and now I'm struck by the parallels with Terri Schiavo's story.
Karen Ann Quinlan was the first modern icon of the right-to-die debate. The 21-year-old Quinlan collapsed at a party after swallowing alcohol and the tranquilizer Valium on 14 April 1975. Doctors saved her life, but she suffered brain damage and lapsed into a "persistent vegetative state." Her family waged a much-publicized legal battle for the right to remove her life support machinery. They succeeded, but in a final twist, Quinlan kept breathing after the respirator was unplugged. She remained in a coma for almost 10 years in a New Jersey nursing home until her 1985 death.
I have the TV on one of the HD channels, there is this incredibly trippy spawn of the Teletubbies on called Boobah. I swear if you were on any kind of hallucinogenics this would just freak you out. I really like it, and there's a great website you should definitely check out. The cats are going crazy, they're all watching the TV, when normally they couldn't care less. Blackie is sitting on top of the TV trying to fish things out of the screen with his paw, and Buggie has tried to jump into the screen at least a dozen times, Malibu is craning his neck to get a better view, flinching and startling when these little animated blobby creatures zip around. You should see this, it's so weird, I wonder if the more condensed, imformation-rich signal looks more realistic to them.
Happy Birthday to my birthday twins Linzee and Romperwebby!
