Having already made arrangements to forgo the pleasure of working on my birthday, I thought I’d extend an invitation to the DC area Dopers (and others who like to travel, I suppose, if any are so inclined) to join me for my 37th birthday celebration.
Date: Sunday, July 15th Time: TBA, probably dinner, but I am open to doing lunch if a majority of folks indicate they’d prefer earlier. Location: The Tortilla Factory restaurant in Herndon, VA. Possible post-meal gathering at my home.
Note: In an attempt to ward off posts of the “Gee, I’d love to come but I’m a newbie/lurker/victim of terminal low self-esteem” type, I wish to emphasize that ALL Dopers are invited. That includes you.
You’re not the only one who was surprised. I am developing this inability to read stuff at various times in the day and I read “37” and thought “Okay . . . I think now I need to see a doctor about this, because I’ve read 37 five times.”
Anniz is in her late 30s, too, and you would not know it in either case from looking at them, talking to them, etc.
There are people 30 years old who wish they looked as good as Geobabe does at (apparently) 37.
And hon? You really should lie about your age, 'coz you could get away with it. Bad:)
[sub]Hoping that got taken the way it was meant . . . [/sub]
jarbabyj, have I told you lately that I love you? Take good care of my fella, OK? Wouldn’t want him to get damaged in transit or anything.
And to everyone else, though it is a birthday party, and as much as I like prezzies, it is really not necessary to bring one. Though, of course, if you absolutely INSIST on bringing something, I’ll take it.
Thanks for the compliments, boys…yes, I could lie about my age, but it’s so much more fun to watch the shocked reactions.
