In exactly ONE week it'll be my b-day. Hint: it's a BIG round NUMBER! I don't mind it's ok, it's ok (repeat ten times, stop, repeat again.) But really I actually don't mind because I still look 17 and trying desperately to dress appropriately and even put away my very mini-minis just so I can arrive at looking my actual age! People say, Oh it's GREAT! you're so lucky you look young, when you're 50 you'll look 35. Yeah right! I'm sure it doesn't work that way... I'll probably look 20 till 35 and after that I'll start looking 50. So basically I will skip out on everything between 35 and 50!? That's not fun.

Lets see, here are advantages for looking way younger...

1. Paying for a 16 and under juniors pass to go to the pool... at 26
2. Skiing at a big discount on a junior pass (16 and under).... at 28
When I was in my senior year of High School my family moved from NY to Chicago. I got hit on by ALL kinds of FRESHMEN! Imagine the embarrassment when some little boy with his cap on backwards would stroll into my AP English and hand me a note from his "friend". YES a NOTE! Like, if you like me check the BOX. But I thought it was funny... I always kinda had a thing for younger men.... Though maybe its because they were the only ones that would approach me...

However, I annoyingly had to try really hard to look older (my age) to be taken seriously... like wearing fake glasses to a job interview (I got the job... then slowly fazed out the glasses). Getting carded EVERYWHERE (well now in Europe this does not happen of course). Here I can drink all kinds of drinkies to my heart's delight and not have to show my id. I can have like 21 beers a night and no one will even blink! Just kidding! That was only that one time! (ok, two times..)

Well before we party hardy for my birthday.... we shall party on over a 4 DAY WEEKEND for Easter! whoohooo! Also my b-day party will have to be sometime in April since many of my superfabulous and glamorous friends are traveling.... China, North Carolina, Paris... Sydney! (Ha! don't you love it, NC is now an exotic destination!)

Hope the weather will play along. Snow is expected on Saturday! BTW the picture above, I took in my neighborhood this winter. It never actually snowed, but it was just FROSTY everywhere.

Weird Holland.
