Tomorrow is my birthday! Happy Birthday to me!

As usual, people have been asking me "Gary, what do you want for your birthday?" and I have been saying "voices in my head/invisible people who hound me - just tell me Happy Birthday".

Which of course is total lie. Because, there are some things I want:

(1) My Pittsburgh Steelers are playing the local team, the Tampa Bay Bucs, tomorrow. I would like the Steelers to win. If you can somehow arrange that, major thumbs up.

(2) That thing that has been hanging over my head is still there until Oct 2nd, at which time I will find out if it is going to drop on my head or disappear. If you want throw some good thoughts toward it disappearing - that would also be appreciated.

(3) Idol related - I want this post to have at least 100 comments. :)

(4) Those of you who are eligible to vote this week: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/784297.html do so!

(5) Have people sign up for Last Chance Idol! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/782944.html and submit their entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/783873.html for Week 1.

(6) If you have the interest, and the means to do so, become an Idol Patron! http://www.patreon.com/user?u=70027

(7) If you feel like getting yourself a little something special at Amazon, do so through the Idol Store link: http://astore.amazon.com/li0cd-20 (there is a ton of Idol-related stuff in there, plus you can click-thru to your regular shopping)

(8) You can find my wishlist at Amazon by searching for clauderains@rocketmail.com :) (seriously though, I'm just throwing it out there to be funny. Unless of course you're serious. :P)

(9) I'm serious about that at least 100 comments thing.


What are YOU doing this weekend to celebrate my birthday?

Sleeping, trying to fight off a rotten cold.

And writing, of course.

Happy Birthday-Eve, Gary. :)

We are in the Columbus area still. We went to the Ohio RenFaire today and had a lovely time. I didn't buy anything except food and beverages, but we enjoyed ourselves and watching some of the shows.

Currently reading entries at the hotel, and waiting for the new Dr. Who episode to come on.

Our housemate and her husband were supposed to be arriving with the U-Haul sometime tonight. Turns out that they can't fit most of their furniture in the U-Haul so they had to get a storage locker near their now previous residence. They also rented out a storage locker up this way too. ANYWAY instead of arriving sometime tonight they'll be arriving sometime tomorrow...and they both have work on Monday (her husband starts his new job up here promptly at 8AM).

Aieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

And their dog whom we're looking after is coming into heat. Poor Max has no idea what the heck is going on with her (he's fixed, so he's looking at her with this "What the heck is going on with you?" expression.)

ETA: We supposedly had a meetup this afternoon with some of SO's friends. One showed an hour early and left right before we got there. Nobody else showed :(

I want a Steelers win, too!

As for my celebration of your birthday... well, yesterday, I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and, tomorrow, I'm planning on going to the Museum of Art and Design.

1) Your Steelers are playing the Bucs and you want good wishes? LOL... It *IS* the Bucs... you think you need help? I'm from Florida and even *I* don't root for the Bucs... (only snowbirds do!)

2) Good thots for your thing. May Oct 2 come quickly and quietly.

3) I believe (altho I'm lazy and I'm not going back to check, so I'm not sure) that this is my first ever Green Room comment (at least it's my first DIRECT comment--I *may* have replied to someone previously). So, I am helping the 100 count.

4) Not eligible to vote, but I *am* trying to read everything ... I kinda fell by the wayside since grandbaby arrived last year ... sorry :(... 10 lashes with a wet diaper.

5) See above reference to grandbaby. If I'm not able to keep up reading the entries, what makes you think I would have time to actually WRITE an entry (and have you seen my LJ lately? Last post was .. um... *sigh*)

6) I wish I had the means. Refer to #4.

7) I need to check out that link. Thanks!

8) How about I just wish you a Happy Birthday instead? :)

9) Should I comment twice?

I had my granddaughter from Friday evening to just a few hours ago, and she didn't sleep well last night. So I'm going to take it easy the rest of the weekend and enjoy my solitude (SO is at her mom's for the weekend). So, you do some partying on my behalf.

10 lashes with a wet diaper

Eww! Better than a poopy diaper, though. :)

Welcome to the GR, feel free to take part as much as the grandbaby allows. :)

Tomorrow is also the birthday of one of my good friends who has currently made The List. We made plans Monday to do something tonight. Fifteen minutes before I'm ready to leave the house, I get word that he's decided to do something two hours away instead. So I shall give him a frosty silence and you, Gary, shall get the wishes he was going to get instead.

If my computer decides it's going to behave itself, I may actually get my voting done as well.

Between a dog and a kid, I have been up since 5 this morning. I am unamused. I am ready to crawl into my bed.

I took the kids over to the neighbors Frozen birthday party this afternoon at the park. They had a goo time. Princess Anna came to the party also. Nasjae, the 5 year old from next door and and new semi-permanent fixture at our home, rode with us to the party. She wanted to know when Princess Anna got a tattoo.
