Tick Tock: the birthday countdown begins

My birthday is coming up. It's this Saturday, the 10th. I have mixed feeling about this. I'm going to be 29. That's entirely too close to 30 for me to be comfortable with it. I know, logically, that I'm not old. I know that there's many more years ahead of me and that age is but a number. I know that I've got plenty of time to have children. Yet the closer to 30 I get without being preggo, I hear that damn biological clock ticking louder and louder and LOUDER. 

I bought myself a birthday present. Last year I purchased my car, a pale cream convertible VW Beetle. This year, I went infinitely cheaper, and much more practical, and got myself an amber ring (wondering how a ring is practical? That should just show you how impractical that car has turned out to be). Similar to the one pictured. Mine doesn't have all the fancy looping around it. I've always loved amber. The age and the history of the stone is interesting to me. The fact that my husbands first reaction to is was "is there anything in there we can harvest DNA from?" makes me ridiculously happy to have a dork for a hubby.  Also, amber was believed to possess magical powers because it was warm to the touch and produces static electricity when it's rubbed. It's said to ward off negative energy and protect from evil. I definitely need that right now. I've got more negative energy in my life right now than I have in a long long time. 

I've been thinking about baking myself a birthday cake. I love baking so I don't mind and none of my friends are really bakers. So I may be whipping up this strawberry cake with lemonade cream cheese filling/frosting. I know it's not healthy, but it's my birthday. That's my justification for it. Maybe I'll decide against it. We'll see. 

Anyways, here's some of the truest things I've read about being a Pisces that directly relates to myself:
This zodiac sign is acknowledged as being the Saint and the Sinner rolled into one; the trendsetter of fashion or art, the lost soul, the philosopher and the psychotic and the visionary. They fantasize about situations, people and particularly romance - and because they spend so much time in their own form of 'fantasy land' this can catch them short in other more worldly areas.Pisces often need to take lots of holidays (or time off) to recover from life's many diverse pressures. You are the zodiac's most sensitive sign, so you need to take extra special care of yourself. Nobody can beat you up, as much as you can beat yourself up within your own mind. In your purest form you are psychic, visionary and a guiding light to all who know you. But, in your "out of tune" state, you become depressed, obsessive and confused.

Pisces, the fish


  1. My first thought about the amber ring was the same as your hubby...garh!
    29 is still pretty young in todays standards, ya have buckets of time left...BUCKETS!! (not sure what that even means)

    But post pictures of your birthday cake please :)

  2. First, I'm gonna need that cake recipe. Second, happy early birthday!! Third, I love that amber ring!! You deserve a nice piece of jewelry because you're a peach :) Mwah!

  3. So I'm glad I'm not the only one that buys themselves a car as a birthday present. I did that a few years ago with my Mustang. Everyone thought I was weird. "Who buys themselves a birthday present like that?" Well, I pose the question, who the hell else is going to buy me a Mustang?

    Oh, and I'm coming up on 29 too, which means I can relate to this all too well. I know we're far from old, but it's funny to be on this end of 30. My biological clock is ticking loudly too, and theoretically, I can impregnate women when I'm 80 (I'd really rather not...).
