Today, I am old. I am as old as mom. Well, not how old my mom is today, but how old my mom was when I thought she was an old lady. She wasn’t an old lady though, but just a young mother, and I am not old, but I used to think that the age I am today was so ancient and so far away that I would never be that old. Well, I was wrong…today is my birthday and I am that old.
I’m not going to say that ‘O’ word anymore, but instead I’m just going to share a bit of wisdom I’ve learned over the years….which is that time flies whether you are having fun or not. You better make the most of things and have some fun goddammit, so you don’t wake up one day, when you are actually old (like 84), and wonder what the hell happened. That’s enough preaching for today, on to funner things.
In Indie Fixx tradition, it may be my birthday, but today I am giving away the presents! I have TEN PRIZES to give away to TEN WINNERS! You can see the prizes below as well as visit the shops who donated them.
How to win?
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post wishing me some birthday cheer! Also, make sure to share your top 3 shops from all the prize choices below and tell me what you would put your gift certificate (or winner’s choice) towards for each of your top three shops.
I will choose 10 random commenters to win and hopefully it will work out that each winner will be able to win one of their top three prize choices.
This giveaway will end Monday, June 22nd at 11:59 am EST. Good luck to all of you and Happy Birthday to me! I hope I get some birthday loot that’s as wonderful as all these prizes!
