Maybe celebrity years are like dog years...

Dear Britney Spears,

Why did you have to be born on my birthday?

I don't think 28 is old at all. Well, at least not until I look at you. I mean, you're a year younger than me, and you've already gotten famous, seen your star begin to fall a bit, gotten married, had two babies, gone mental, gotten divorced, been to rehab, made out with Madonna, and gotten your life "back on track." I mean, none of that really appeals to me (at least not at the moment, except maybe the getting my life back on track part), but you're starting to make me feel like I haven't accomplished anything in life.

I guess I do have a pretty sweet Corolla to show for the years I spent in school and working rather than pursuing a pop music career. Ha HA! Take that, Britney!

Happy birthday anyway.


P.S. Internets - I will officially turn 28 in less than 18 hours. I figure at that point, I will have to start considering myself an adult. (Dammit.) Any suggestions for things to do before I'm officially in my late twenties?

fist off, did you see her 1 hour debut last night on MTV? HAH! that's some time i'll never get back :(

secondly, yes i have something for you to do before you turn "adult" age: take a bath in jello. or pudding, either one will suffice.

Happy Belated Birthday! I've been pretty much absent from the blogosphere.

And do you really want to compare your life to Britney Spears? Come on. You're better than that. You're a good writer but more importantly an awesome friend.

Hope you had a most excellent birthday!
