The birth of meeeee! [Jul. 25th, 2013|08:11 pm]

Tomorrow (Friday, July 26) is my birthday. I’m telling you this now because one of the main ways to celebrate my birthday worldwide–by which I mean it happens in both Eagan and Apple Valley–is to have something unusually awesome for breakfast.


I am a big fan of breakfast. No matter what a crappy day I have had, I can go to bed and think, “Well, in the morning I get breakfast.” Even when I have a stomach bug or food poisoning, I go to bed thinking, “Maybe in the morning I’ll feel good enough for breakfast.” Sometimes it’s really very simple.


So! I always felt weird about having no better answer than “Thanks” when people said happy birthday to me, so now I answer, “Happy my birthday!” Because really! There’s no reason you shouldn’t have a happy my birthday as well as a happy your birthday. And one of the best ways to do that is with a croissant or apricot breakfast crisp or weird fruit fridge porridge or french toast or…breakfast stuff. It’ll be good.


I am like a twelve-year-old when it comes to my birthday. I have been poking at the packages on the hearth for days now. Poke…poke…pooooooke…. It also turns out that Amazon will display your wishlist with the items obscured, so you just see how many there are, which is like the digital version of poke…poke…poooooke…so, being mentally 12, I do that too.


I love birthdays. I really think this is going to be a good one. For all of us, I hope.

Happy your birthday. My present this year appears to be a txanne.

I knew I had forgotten to use the Amazon Universal button on something.

Happy Birthday, a little early. French toast sounds wonderful.

Happy your birthday! I shall feed m'beloved raisin-and-cinnamon bread what I made, likely toasted. She may make some snide comment about the British fetish for toast, but she'll eat it.

Yay! I love having my birthday and I enjoy having your birthday as well! And I love breakfast. So in your honor I will make John pancakes for breakfast tomorrow since we like those but don't often make them.

Aha! I shall begin applying the psychic rays to Andres so he will make me French toast in the morning. (Then later I will do the baking for Morgan's birthday, which will result in delicious muffins I will happily eat for breakfast several days in row if they do not all get eaten at the party. Maybe I should make two batches.)

Also happy birthday! I got distracted thinking about muffins and French toast and like that.

Muffins are like that. I have made some myself, so I know.

Happy your birthday in approximately 49 minutes! Tomorrow for breakfast, I get to have bananas which is REALLY exciting, because Host-Family hasn't had them in WEEKS, and I've been craving them almost daily since I got back from Tanzania. Where they were consumed daily.

So in honor of your birthday, and wishing you happy adventures like I had with bananas, I will blissfully chomp down a banana with breakfast!

Happy birthday!

I'm normally not a big breakfast person, just a bowl of cereal (these days usually Kashi Cinnamon Harvest). I'll see what I can do tomorrow, maybe go out and have a sweet roll.

Happy Birthday!

As I read your post I was finishing my first cup of smooth, dark coffee, after a bowl of the sort of muesli that's half dried fruit.

Happy Birthday! I didn't read this in time to plan anything special for breakfast this morning but I did open a new packet of muesli and was pleasantly surprised to find that as well as dried fruit it contained a little bit of cinnamon, just enough to make it fragrant.

Wishing you a great birthday. I'll try to find something especially scrumptious for breakfast for myself and my family so we can all celebrate and have a happy your birthday. :)
