My Forever 39 Party




Plus, I just HAD to soak my pudgy aching footsies...at 2AM.



I think I may make my next "40-year quest" to soak my feet in as many tubs as possible.

Biggest surprise: A bracelet from Tiffany's. (Even though I said no gifts! I was floored.)

Funniest moment: My mom tucking 2 quarters into her brassiere at the dinner table, for "slots" even though they no longer take coins.

Ocean's 11 moment: They wouldn't let me bring the balloons onto the casino floor.

Win/Win: I only almost teared up twice. But no tears were spilled! Mostly because we were all laughing too much for me to feel even a serious moment of sadness. Yay! Mission accomplished.

Friends moment: HS friends met after-HS friends...and the worlds did not explode! Yay! I'm not George Costanza after all. I am sure you are all much relieved!




Family: Special superduper thanks to my sisters for putting on their "gambling faces" and playing along with me even though they don't gamble. We had some great moments of laughter.

Overall, I felt very blessed and warm, surrounded by love that has spanned 40 -freaking- years.

How lucky am I?! Priceless.

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
