Preface: 7 AM

Birthdays are always a little exciting. 

From the second the clock turns midnight, I wait for my first phone call or text.

(above: my cell phones circa: 2001, 2003, 2006, now)
I fall asleep only to be woken up at an obscenely early hour. 
As I listen, the noise on the line starts off rather quiet...

Dun nun nun nun nun nun .... dundundunddunAHHHHHHHHHHH!!

I never need to set an alarm because my mom calls me every year just so she can hold the phone up to the speaker. It's from this 1984 album (and when I say album, I mean record):

Wherever I am, I listen to the entire song. 
Keep in mind, I am turning 29 - that's almost 25 years she's been doing this!!!

I have the best mom ever.

You know it's going to be a good year when you accidentally get a little snippit of the next song -"Digital Duck." 

This is the sort of life that I lead and I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. I'm going to have that Happy Birthday song bouncing around inside my head all day!

  2. Haha! I know...it's catchy right? I feel guilty for listening to it early this year :\
