Cake or Death

As you may have surmised from the musical excess above, today is my birthday. (Also Sophia Loren’s.  That bitch – she never calls!)

It’s been probably the hardest year of my life, given the D-I-V-O-R-C-E (and the P-O-V-E-R-T-Y ) but from where I stand today, I feel downright optimistic, which I never would have thought a year ago, for sure.

No small part of that is due to you, my dear online intar-webs compadres. Thanks to you all for hangin’ out with such an old broad. You do indeed “make me feel all shiny and new…”

If you’re expecting some virtual cake, you’re out of luck. As the birthday queen here at the office today, I’ve requested a change from the usual birthday fare, so we’re having breakfast tacos, not cake. (Okay, so there was a little question of a fire hazard with all the candles….)

Anyhoo, should you be feeling gifty in my direction, I’d be honored if you channeled that generosity with a donation to any of these fine groups:

Noah’s Wish – unique animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to rescuing and sheltering animals in disasters.

The Gabriel Foundation-Promoting education, conservation, rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and sanctuary for the needs of parrots everywhere.

The National Domestic Violence Hotline– Safe homes and safe families are the foundation of a safe society. Taking calls 24/7 every single day of the year. That’s about 20,000 calls a month folks.

COLAGE – Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere. To engage, connect, and empower people to make the world a better place for children of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender parents and families.
