I turned 30 over the weekend, which ordinarily should be a very important event, aside from the fact that I completely forgot it was my birthday. I got a call early in the morning from my aunt in Sri Lanka and it took a few seconds for me to grasp she was wishing me a happy birthday. This is the fourth time it’s happened in my life.
My age is finally starting to catch up to my gray hairs and forehead lines. It’s all downhill from here, but it’s a good thing I already had my midlife crisis last year. That sort of thing really puts a monkey wrench in your plans. Or lack thereof.
I didn’t have a party and only a few friends knew, but my mom got me something nice.
Now I know where I get my sense of humor
This is the sort of thing she does when she knows it’s time to cheer me up. And it worked!
There’s a whole bunch of stuff I wanted to catch up to, but with all the Sandy stuff happening lately and the fact that I couldn’t use the subway for almost two weeks, I’ve been inundated with work that had to be completed at home. Between two dozen calls to San Francisco and a bazillion emails to respond to, I’m almost glad I kept the Blackberry for a second line… almost.
I’ll do a proper update when I get the chance.
I never thought I would see the day where a child icon is being used by nefarious types to further their agenda of allowing illegal aliens into the country.
It is just disgraceful how proponents of illegal immigration are twisting young minds to accept these foreign hoodlums and vagabonds as members of our community. How dare they think a nation of justice and virtue will stand for it.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against immigrants. In fact, I am one too. But it’s the idea that people can simply walk across a border or step out of a train and simply become assimilated as one of our own… It’s just preposterous! How could they think that any person (and I use that term loosely as they don’t deserve the complement) of that calibre can simply become a contributing member of society when they don’t even understand the culture. Heck, most don’t even understand the language.
How many “mistakes” or “errors in judgement” must they make for the rest of us to realise the threat they are?
It just goes to show how far the media has gone in manipulating the public. Who would ever suspect little Paddington Bear of being a job thief or potential terrorist. This shows once again at how far the Liberal media has sunk its claws into the psyche of the public.
Happy 50th birthday Paddington Bear!
