There is still no cure for the common birthday

Approaching my birthday this year was interesting. I didn't look forward to it; I didn't dread it. There wasn't anything that I really wanted either.

I received some nice shirts, a tie, and Mario Galaxy for the Wii (I am actually really excited about playing that). Nothing major. But, as I said, I didn't have a list of items I really wanted.

I started thinking about my indifference to my birthday this year and came to the conclusion that it is probably because I am generally content and happy. I don't have any great needs, I am in good health, and I don't have much stress in my life. What more do I need.

So all in all, this has been a good birthday and the day isn't even half over.

There is still no cure for the common birthday.

That's exactly how I felt about my birthday this year--indifferent. Not excited, yet not dreaded. Loved it!
