Thanks, yes, it was 10/8. I hate birthdays. Not my own! I just can't get excited about them, mine or anyone else's. You're only one day older on your birthday!
Birthdays suck, I know. I always try to be alone that day. Some of the worst days of my life have been birthdays. It comes down to expectations that are inevitably unmet coupled with the specter of imminent mortality and people annoying you. Generally, it's the time just before my birthday that I enjoy most. For instance, my birthday is in December and around now (or July) is when I feel most "in-season".
