Free for All 40 & Fabulous Friday, October 14

So today we take a break from books, literature and what not.  Why? Because it's my birthday!  While you're reading this, I'll be getting a massage or a pedicure or getting my do done.  Eventually I'll have a late lunch with my father and maybe take in a jazz concert later.

I know that most people make resolutions for the new year, I make mine on my birthday.  So here are a few of my resolutions.

1. I'm shedding one-sided relationships.  That includes friends that can't remember my birthday, though I remember not only theirs, but their kids as well.  I know it will come as a shock to some of them.

But honestly, if the only time I hear from you is when you need to borrow money, you need a new gig, you're between boyfriends, you want to vent about your kids or you're selling product XYZ that you'd like me to buy, consider yourself gone, because we're not friends.  Hell, we're barely even acquaintances.  Buh-bye.

2. Toodles Debbie Downers. You can't find something to be happy about ever???  I've known you for years and that scowl on your face is etched so deeply that you've got well defined lines like you're sitting up on Mt. Rushmore.  You're like the piss fairy, just waiting on someone to come along in a good mood so you can rain on their parade.  What is that all about? I know misery loves company, but damn.

 You can hop on the goodbye bus along with One-Sided Sally.  You are no longer a factor in my world.

3.  I plan to enjoy life to the fullest. I've spent  a lot of time and put a lot of effort into raising a productive member of society.  She's off in college getting her party study on and I plan to do the same.

What, if any, changes have you made in your life recently? Are you already thinking about New Year's resolutions?  Was I too harsh?
