I am 28

It?s my Birthday today and in the vain hope of some online attention I thought I?d post that fact here although the fact is that today is no different from yesterday or tomorrow. I remember when birthdays were such a special time, a day devoted to solely to yourself, but now there are so many special occasions that it gets lost. In a word we are spoilt. We can go out whenever we want. We can buy whatever we want. We can do anything, anytime of the year, so why wait until a Birthday?

I guess I?m just in one of those moods. To be honest work was fine today, I got some ?happy birthdays? from quite a few people (due in part to the tradition of bringing cakes into work on your birthday), and I?m going to have a couple of drinks tonight before my party on Saturday. I guess I should be in a better mood.

Am I coming across as gloomy? Moan, moan, moan, that?s all I seem to do. From now on I am ?Happy Adem?! Just watch me!

Update: Here?d a link to photos from my party on Saturday.

    I remember being 28. Those were the days?

    Nah ? I totally agree with you mate. It?s for similar reasons that the prospect of Christmas this year fills me with a sense of impending dread?.

  3. I gave up having birthdays when I was 29. I?m still 29. Honest I am!

  4. Sorry ? forgot to say ?hope you had a good one?!

  6. Happy belated birthday. Now I?ve discovered (via twitter) that you are back in the land of the blogging.

    Well, happy birthday then!

    I don?t celebrate much to be honest now. It?s just another year? I celebrate other milestones.

    Online attention shall be paid!

    Happy belated b?day.

    And oh, I never liked this self-indulgence trip of the b?day either. But then again, it?s a special day, no matter how you turn it. You feel that the day after: it?s not your birthday anymore and that?s just bland. So I hope you had fun. Cheers!
