6. Wore my (real) diamond earrings
7. Sprayed myself with perfume
8. Listened to Led Zeppelin, AD/DC, and Tom Jones
9. Danced in the kitchen
10. Ate more of Kathy's brownies
11. Visited with family and friends
12. Read birthday cards, e-mails and messages on my facebook wall
13. Ate Indian food with my mom
14. Ate cupcakes with my mom
15. Cut myself a hyacinth for sniffing purposes and stuck it in a tiny vase
16. Made dinner--steak, baked potatoes, steamed aspergas
17. Read funny bits to my brother Jim out of ANGLO FILES
18. Played cards
19. Danced some more (thanks for indulging me, Q!)

I add my "true dat" to the comments about how glad I am you were born. And what an inspirational mom, to get her boys breakfast on her own birthday! So unselfish.
