A palindrome birthday wish


I suppose I should start this post by first defining the word "palindrome" for those of you who can't remember back to third grade. Palindromes are words that you can read forwards and backwards. Like level. Or racecar. Or go hang a salami. (That last one is I'm a lasagna hog backwards, in case you're wondering.)

So... I'm turning the big 33 next week. (Let's not talk about it too much. It will be the last year that I'll be able to say I'm in my "early 30s," and I'm not happy about it. But now you get the palindrome reference, right?)

Anyhow, I thought it'd be fun to try to get up to 33 "official" blog followers/readers to commemorate the big day. (I know you're out there. I have a blog traffic tracker.)

Whaddya say? Check out the box right over there (<----) and just click on the "Follow this blog" link above all those squares of folks who have already admitted to following my sad dating life. It's not hard at all! (That's what she said.)

Hope to see you following soon! (I mean, it's really not that much to ask for my bday, is it? It's not like I asked you for a new Louis Vuitton. Or a boyfriend. Though I'd take one and/or both of those too.)

P.S. Should we be at all concerned that the original version of this cake picture (before my *sweet* image editing skills kicked in) said, "Happy 30th Birthday, Dan"??? Yes, you read that right. DAN. True story.

UPDATE: Yeah! Got my wish! (And within less than a day. You guys are great!) But, I hope that doesn't deter you from following too if you want to sign up. I'd love to know how many of you are reading the blog with some regularity!

UPDATE 2: Hmmmph. Someone unsubscribed. (The nerve! HA!) So disregard my jubilance in the above update.

Christina - I know! Fun! But I hope that doesn't make other people not sign up (just because it would push it OVER 33... unless that means I get older too). :)

What if your boyfriend designed Louis Vuitton?

Did I just blow your mind?

Jane Doe - fun! Thanks!

So@24 - Whoa. I need a drink after that one. (BTW, do you know a guy who designs Louie's? Sign me up.)
