Fine Whine by pandab on 29 July 2006 3:43am
Sorry, folks, I just gotta whine. Let off some steam, if you will.

Today is my birthday. And what a day it has been.

First, I overslept and was 30 minutes late to work. Then I had hell's own day.

To top it off, as I pulled out of the parking garage this evening, my car (faithful Blue Boy, an '89 Celebrity) gave a horrendous screech that vibrated the whole car and died. I managed to get it to the mechanics (by the grace of whatever god looking out for elderly vehicles) where it rests still.

Now, I'm car-less, waiting for tomorrow morning to find out whether Blue Boy can be revived and, if so, how much it will cost.

Happy @#$%& Birthday!

Thank you for letting me grumble. Now, pass the cheese for my whine. :)

What a terrible birthday, pandab! I suggest you change your birth date for this year to August 28th so you can celebrate properly when things have settled down.

Well, many happy returns, anyway....

Don't blame you for having a bloody good whine - what a horrid day. All good birthday wishes to you.

Sometimes the worst birthdays become the most memorable ones and you'll laugh at them years later. Happy Birthday. :)

Happy Birthday, Pandab! But what a day you've had. Things can only get better!

Oh, man! Are you sure you weren't on your period, too? That would have made it PERFECT!

Well, Happy Birthday, panda. You get to have a raincheck, any day you feel like trying the birthday celebration again. We'll be here!
