Another Birthday, Another Slight


Yesterday was my birthday.   Depending on which calculation you use, I am either 64 (the same age as Cordelia’s Mom), or 2 (the age of this blog).   Today I’m feeling more like 2.

Yesterday, everyone was happily celebrating CookieCakes’ birthday.  She got cards and presents from the family, and lots of good wishes from her readers.

What am I, chopped liver?

Listen, people, it was my birthday, too! Not one single one of you thought to wish me a Happy Birthday!

Sure, you all come around when you want a good laugh, you come around when you want someone to spar with, you come around when you want to read something that makes you feel like a better person because you’re not me.

But don’t I deserve a little human interaction, too?  Would it have been so hard to drop a simple comment expressing your happiness that I was born?  You are happy I was born, right?  Right?

Now I’m just pissed again.  I will find a way to make you all sorry.  I will find a way to make sure no one forgets me next year.

The game is on.

  1. Reblogged this on Cordelia's Mom, Still and commented:

    oops, I might have committed a faux pas. How could we all forget Not CM on her birthday ?!

    Aw. Happy belated birthday to you, too.


  3. Call me crazy, but I remember wishing you a happy birthday. With the caps lock on. So here it is again:



    • Ha, see how confusing it gets? You wished Cordelia’s Mom a happy birthday, but everyone (including me) forgot about the alter-ego. From BOTH of us, thank you for the birthday greetings, Marilyn!


  4. A “single comment”? What? No couple of comments couples welcomed? (Or was that supposed to be a birthday comment in a couplet?…will let a better poet compose that)
    Long live birthdays!

    Hey NCM! Happy Birthday! Great picture of the cat in the box with Teddy.


    • It’s actually a gift bag turned on its side, Paul. Other than that, the picture turned out well …

      BTW, I heard you had some issues with CookieCakes not reading your posts. Wanna come on over to my site and blast her?
