August 17

I'm 31 this year.

My mother called me and asked what I wanted this year for my birthday. I couldn't think of anything other than my baby pictures that I've been asking for. I poured on the guilt by saying to her, "The only thing that will make this birthday great would be to see how happy I was as a little kid blowing out the candles on my cake." Much to my surprise she just dropped off an album full of pictures from my early childhood. Man, I was a cute kid! (if i do say so myself)

I really hate this word. I can't think of a positive way to use the word, busy.

I'm busy. -- hate it.
I'm not busy. -- hate it.

J couldn't even give me a sentence where busy is positive. Well, I think he just didn't understand the question and gave up. Or maybe he was busy.

The store is not busy. -- I can see where this is positive to the customer. Sadly, the store isn't making money.

The shirt is a little busy for my taste. -- Need I say more? Although this is usually a subjective comment, I would probably tend to agree.

Let's get busy. -- Although this could have a positive outcome, "let's get busy" sounds like something a man wearing a velour jump suit should say.

Yup, I'll keep brainstorming about this one. (if I'm not busy)
