|I'd give valuable things to be that person right now.|
One thing is: trying to plan a celebration/party for your 30th birthday... in December. Everyone already has plans! It's ridiculous. To be fair, this time last year, a certain person said she was going to plan a really awesome party...with out-of-town family, renting out a room at a nice restaurant, the whole shebang. I asked several times throughout the year if she needed help planning and was turned down because, "I'm going to plan it". And now here we are, birthday week, and I'm stuck trying to plan something last-minute because someone didn't do their job. This is why I'd rather just plan things. At least I know they'll get done. A little livid? Yes. A little.
(And again, to be fair, this person's birthday is three days after mine, so it would be a celebration of her birthday, too).
The next thing is: My family thinks I'm psychic. "What does so-and-so want for Christmas?" "When are So-and-So coming up to visit?" "How does so-and-so like his job?" I don't effing know. Ask SO-AND-SO!
While I know that neither of these things is earth shattering and it's like "Dude, could your problems be any more First World?", I'm still annoyed. It's my right as a person.
In other news, for my birthday yesterday, Lee sent me the most unique and amazing thing ever.
I cannot wait to try some of these recipes! Most of them sound delicious, like Capitol-Grade Dark Chocolate Cake and District 3 Dinner Rolls, and then there are a few that are...questionable, like Small Critter Casserole and Grilled Tree Rat with Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce.
This Friday is our Holiday Luncheon at work, and I'm thinking of trying out one of the desserts. I'll definitely be posting about it when I do. I also told Lee that I'd send him some of the baked goods that I try. So. Excited.
What's one of the most memorable gifts you've received?
Is there something your family does that drives you insane?
