26 Feb

Yes, today it’s all about ME – and any other person who has a birthday today…nope, just about me..me me me – who cares about anyone else today –just ME…..
I am shameless – yes, I am shameless about touting my Birthday.
Now, being a Pisces, I don’t want gifts because I am not that way… but, I do want everyone to know I AM SPECIAL BECAUSE TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY AND I’M A PISCES! …..
Happy birthday to me
happy birthday to me
happy birthday dear me
happy birthday to meeeeeeeeeeeee
me me me me

At 53 – omg I’m 53~! I’m a Granny Kat – oh! But! At 52 I had my debut novel, TG, out and became C0-Editor Publisher of an online journal (Rose & Thorn), and my first biological grandchild, little Norah Kathryn was born. Now at 53, I’ll have my second book, Secret Graces, out!
And being a 53 year old Granny Kat – I did a nekkid reading! And it did it with atrophied upper body muscles due to my injury – haven’t been able to work out for going on 6 weeks now -oh dear! How Brave I am! My beautiful (almost) Michelle Obama arms gone to flab….haw!
So, what’s next in this year besides novels and editorial do dahs? Well, I don’t know, but I’m ready.
Happy birthday to meeeee – it’s all about me m e me – oh me me me — and a big side of ME…..
Now, since I am quite the healthful eater, for my birthday I am eating something BAD. Although I just had my b’fast of plain brown cow greek yogurt with fruit and granola. But later? Yes, later I eat something like french fries! and cake! whoop whoop!
Happy Birrtthhdayyyy toooo meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ME ME MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Now, folks – one bit of business today and then it is off to do whatever I want for ME ME ME — birthday ME: I’ve been on blog tour – yesterday I was at Sharla’s Place – did a porch reading, with clothes on this time *laugh*- and I hope you stopped by and said “kat sent me” *smiling* — I’ve put my blog tour stops on a Page – yes, blogger has pages now, like a website – you can see them above-there’s Home, there’s Video/trailer page, and there’s Blog Tour Page . . . I hope you’ll stop by those places who hosted me on blog tour and say a big hello: I’m grateful for their support. I’ll be stopping elsewhere, too and more on what I’ll be doing and where and how I’ll be doing virtual book readings, and on the contest with Gumbo Writer later — because today IS MY BIRTHDAY AND IT’S ALL ABOUT me me memMEMEMEMMEME!

I'm with Deb above… load up on the grease and carbs today, it doesn't count! Go for the burger and gravy fries, cake, and add some ice cream with whipped cream and hot fudge dripping all over it. And then for supper…. :)

    Happy Birthday fellow Pisces! Just like you and dear Suldog, we share the same Zodiac sign. And while both of you are/will be 53, I shall be 35. Reversed numbers! How much of a coincidence is that?

    Happy Birthday DearMe! And hope that the next one will even be greater:) Happy bad eating today!

    Happy Du-Wop Birthday, dear Pisces! My daughter is one, too, Feb. 19, just made it in. And she said on HER birthday–IT'S ALL ABOUT ME! And she was right and so are you. You are so young. I don't want to hear another word about your age. Your post goes up tonight. Don't forget to wipe the icing off your mouth before you go to bed! Chocolate, I hope.

    Happy Birthday Kat! I enjoyed seeing you doing a reading in your Birthday Suit. Somehow it seemed very appropriate. Perhaps it should be mandatory for every author to do a reading in their birthday suit on their birthday?Or, on second thought (various authors I would not want to see kekkid coming to mind) perhaps not.

  27. Alissa February 28, 2010 at 11:25 am #

    Happy Birthday! I've even given you a little present, there's an award for you over at my blog.

  28. Deb Shucka February 28, 2010 at 1:46 pm #

    I love birthdays in the same way you do, Kat. I hope this one is full of joyful, fun-filled celebrating for you. I'm married to a Pisces, my mom is a Pisces – so needless to say, it's one of my favorite signs. Love!
