I woke up bright and early at 6 am and watched music videos on Youtube. I was just in that mood. I read a few blogs. I got a few calls by around 8 am and attending to those took up a long time, so I reached the office by around 11 am. I sat down and read my mail while my team members went on their way to pretend to ignore me and act like they didn’t know that it was my birthday! Silly thing really; a few days ago, one of them actually checked with me to confirm that it was on the 2nd and I told her that we would all go out for lunch that day!
Well, the woman, the one I like, called me at around 12 pm to sing me ‘happy birthday’ and wish me for the day. She wanted me to go out and have some fun and not think of anything else. I said that it was impossible and I also asked her not to say ‘may all your wishes come true’, because my biggest wish wouldn’t come true. She was still trying to keep me in good spirits.

They came in together, singing and wishing me and gave me the gift. It was a nice clock cum table lamp that is in the shape of a old style ship! I love it and it sits next to my computer now. We then went to cut the cake and splat! I was covered with chocolate gooey cake & cream – it was in my eyes, my nose, my ears and all over my face. It took two thorough washings to get rid of it.
We then went out to lunch and had a good 2 hours there. Then it was back to the office & later a couple of us went for some drinks at the Velocity bar. It was nice and the food was good but extremely pricey. Remind me never to eat food from there again!
