Only six weeks until my birthday! I will be the big 2-8. What what. [That was in my gangsta voice.] For my birthday, I have asked two things of H. First, I would like my present to be an iPod Shuffle. Second, H will go with me to see the movie coming out that week starring my boyfriend (John Krasinski) and Mandy Moore. I told H the Shuffle and the movie are the only things I want, but he said that it is not enough and he must get me more presents. So I told him he could download some songs onto the iPod. Still not enough for him. It is my birthday [in six weeks] and that's all I want, so that is all I should get! Don't I get to choose how much I get for my birthday? Apparently, if history is any indication, the answer is no. H and I always set budgets for birthday and Christmas presents. Then H always goes at least $100 over the limit. Then I get mad. Then H gets mad at me for getting mad at him when he was trying to do something nice. Then I get mad at H for getting mad at me for getting mad at him and for thinking that busting our budget is nice. It is a bad cycle. Maybe this is the birthday we can break the cycle! I have high hopes.
Speaking of my boyfriend, I only saw the last ten minutes of the season finale of The Office! I didn't worry about it at the time because we taped it, but it turned out that our connection was defective and we taped an hour worth of black screen! Noooo!
