The Unbirthday Song
Statistics prove, prove that you’ve one birthday,
one birthday ev’ry year.
But there are three hundred and sixty four
That is why we’re gathered here to cheer.
A very merry unbirthday to you, to you.
A very merry unbirthday to you,
It’s great to drink to someone and I guess that you will do.
A very merry unbirthday to you
When I was a kid, I loved Alice In Wonderland. This probably shouldn’t surprise you by now. My best girl friend and I would have unbirthday tea parties every chance we got, taking turns being the lucky unbirthday girl for the day. We sang that little ditty above over and over while eating pretend pink cupcakes and drinking water out of our tea cups in our best dress-up finery. So as you can see, I have a long standing fondness for a good unbirthday celebration.
Today, as it happens, is my Unbloggyversary Day! This is different from what I call my “Official Bloggyversary” (back in October) which is merely the day I blogged here for the first time. No, the Unbloggyversary is special in its own right. On this day last year I suddenly got serious about blogging for reals. Unlike previous fits and starts I’d had in the past, this time it stuck. It’s become an important part of my life somehow. And what better way to celebrate that, than with a contest for all of you? Sure beats eating pretend cupcakes in big girl clothes!
So here’s how to play: Leave me a comment, asking me anything you’d like to know about me, my knitting, my life etc. and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a kit to make these and whatever other little treats I can find to put in:
The deadline for questions will be February 16, 2008, a week from today to give everyone who doesn’t visit very often a chance to participate. I don’t suspect that I have that many readers so you have a pretty good chance to win if you enter ;) I’ll answer the questions everyone leaves in a post (or posts depending on how many of you there are) so you can all enjoy the answers and most likely discover that I am “curiouser and curiouser” than you ever imagined. So, here’s to Unbloggyversaries and pink cupcakes! Can’t wait to celebrate with all of you!
BTW: I’m not that clever. I got this idea from Robin and I really enjoyed it when she did her contest. She graciously allowed me to copycat her. Thanks Robin!!
A very merry unbloggyversary to me…. and you!
