I forgot my Birthday :(

Maybe it's an age thing, although I don't think so, maybe it's because I have had a lot to concern myself with this year...prolonged illness, best man at a wedding back in UK, baby in the family, out of work, changing house 3 times....but I actually forgot my birthday this year.

It was on the Tuesday, and the Friday before someone wished me happy birthday saying that they wouldn't be near a computer and after the weekend's fun would forget by then anyway, so was being on the safe side, which I did very much appreciate.

Hmf, I actually forgot my own birthday.

Anyone else had this happen

Of course :-)
I've never celebrated birthdays, I just don't understand why people do. What exactly is being celebrated?

I don't celebrate mine, but I know when it is! Just another day.

Looking forward to this year though, coincidentally the day I need to resign is my birthday! Best present ever!

ME !!! I think mine to me means, being able to take a day off to reflect and move on in life a bit wiser.

Time to take a 'chill pill' and get away from it all just for one day to do what the hell you like

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.

Re: I forgot my Birthday :(

Belated Happy Birthday

And no I haven't forgotten my birthday yet, though the last year I didn't want anyone to know it was my birthday. Does that count?

Nope, not done that yet

Larry, we just use it as an excuse to get pi$$ed

Personally, I think the rest of you should be celebrating MY birthday, and sending my parents gifts of gratitude and thanks :-)
