Illness is the worse thing in the world ...
Hehe, well, I'm glad I ain't got Cancer at the moment. It's more of a ... cold, mixed with a dry, bad throat, stuffy nose and a horrible cough. And my skin is more sensitive than usual, and I feel a little feverish :(
Today is my birthday :) Bit freaky 'cause last year, when I was 'Sweet Sixteen' I was ill then! Gaah ... and now I'm ill this year :(
I remember when I was 10. Waking up at like 7am, running in my parents' bedroom shouting 'Yay it's my birthday!! I'm double figures!' - haha .. and now, seven years later ... I don't even feel .. happy :(
I'm glad I'm not working today ...
Good timing, eh? It's my birthday - if I wasn't ill - I'd HAVE TO work .. and because I'm ill, I don't have to :D hehe ...
:( Ow, my throat ...
I've got £40 in total of 'Birthday Money' - Some still to come from my nanny ... and my sisters' presents. - And my friends? Hehe, they forgot! Oh well, I don't care. I don't want presents. I've got a job now, with lots of money - .. so presents have stopped becoming important to me. I know it sounds weird ... but last year, My family were buying my clothes. I got a pair of suede boots for my 16th and I was so chuffed; whereas now, I can just go and buy some at any time.
My parents haven't given my present yet. I don't know what I want. No, I DON'T want money :P .. I'd like to get a dvd/cd. I might ask Daddy if he can buy me the new Pink Floyd dvd for £13. It's rare Pink Floyd footage from 1966-1967; Includes footage of John Lennon and Mick Jagger walking about, being interviewed about their views on the lightshows. Pretty cool :P
I didn't see him today. I guess before I was ill, I was hoping to see him Saturday; But I'm too ill. :( He hasn't got me a card/present I bet! :P hehe. I don't care ... but I keep all my cards :) I might pop out later, out town ... spend some of the money. So perhaps I'll catch him ...
Well, that's all for now I suposse ...
Oh - and my snails are happy. Colin gave me a card ... but it had slime all over it. And he baked me a chocolate-cake; Which I could eat ... apart from the added leaves :-\ So I declined the cake ;)
LOVE YOU COLIN!!!!!! XXXXXXXXXxxxXXXXXXXX <3
(Colin is my pet snail for all who didn't know. There's a picture of him in previous entry(ies). Also, he has a cousin called Norris.)
Thanks for the presents everyone :)
I learned the truth at seventeen
That love was meant for beauty queens
and high school girls with clear-skinned smiles
who married young, and then retired
The valentines I never knew
The Friday night charades of youth
were spent on one more beautiful
At seventeen I learned the truth ...
... We play the game, and when we dare
we cheat ourselves at solitaire
Inventing lovers on the phone
Repenting other lives unknown
that call and say 'Come dance with me'
and murmur vague obscenities
at ugly girls like me, at seventeen ...
... To those of us who knew the pain
of valentines that never came
and those whose names were never called
when choosing sides for basketball
It was long ago, and far away
The world was younger than today
when dreams were all they gave for free
to ugly duckling girls like me ...
