...so in honor of all of you wonderful people who make my every day awesome, comment here with a prompt of some kind and I will write you a fic in twenty-two sentences or less (because I am apparently twenty-two now and not just two like I thought).

But seriously, guys. Thanks for all of the well-wishes and general sweetness. Y'all are amazing.

Mom and I celebrated early on Sunday by going out of gorditas, buying underwear, and then having dinner with Gene at Red Robin (YUM!) and then she decided to stretch the celebration over until my real birthday. SHE GOT ME A CARD WITH A PINK HIPPO ON IT EATING A CUPCAKE. (Like I said, I'm totally two.) This morning I woke up and had a dance party with my cat. And now I've been sent to my room and

Okay can we talk about how flawless my mom is? She color-coordinated my card, cake, and flowers. AND SHE GOT ME A TOY STORY BALLOON.

I think my [livejournal.com profile] hogwarts_elite app may hit the sorting comm today so I am excited/anxious for that. Excxious? Anxcited? There has to be a word for that somewhere. [eta: Apparently not, I am further back and realize I miscounted the number of apps that had dropped already. 20 is not 30. Hello Megan!] It's also Elvis' deathday and Jason Todd's birthday, so my tumblr dashboard has been filled with that kind of awesomeness.

Later today Beth and I are going out to be fabulous together. We're just not yet sure what that entails lol.

Watching Where the Wild Things Are right now. I think Bernieboo thinks he's a Wild Thing. I should not let him watch this movie. It is a bad influence on him. (Seriously, as soon as the movie started he turned into a little furry terror. Wtf cat you were being so nice.)

Anyway prompt away and have a fantastic day ♥

('cause getting there is half the fun)

Got off work today and then went to Chili's with Mom and (gasp!) Chaney where we had a (double gasp!) very friendly dinner with NO ARGUMENTS (woo hoo!). Had a pina colada (though it was still technically illegal lol my birthday is tomorrow) and then came home and found out that one version of its origin has it being introduced on AUGUST 16TH. WHUT. So now I have a "birthday drink" lol.

Then we came home for cake~

cell phone pics because I was too lazy to look for my camera )

I forgot to take pictures of my balloons (Mom got me a Toy Story mylar, a 21st birthday mylar, a girly happy birthday mylar, and a single blue latex). The latex one will probably be down by the time I wake up (idk when exactly it was blown up, but unless HiFloat or the like was used, those things have a strict floatspan of about 10 hours max), but I'll try to remember to take a picture of the mylars tomorrow.

After I get off work tomorrow Gene's taking me to Outback Steakhouse, and then I'm going out with Beth and Rob on Tuesday. I think Belle mentioned wanting to take me out this weekend. Lol, I'm so popular now that I can drink. I just hope no one's disappointed when they find out I fully intend on continuing my not drinking motto as soon as the celebratory invitations have dropped off. Everyone keeps telling me that now that I'm ~legal~ I'm going to nix my non-alcoholic policy, but tbh I was eying the strawberry lemonade more than I was the pina colada Mom bought me.

DJ weirdly bought be a book of poetry. It looks really good, but I think he only got it for me because he wants up my skirt. Idk. I'll have to watch how I act with him. I'm too flirtatious naturally I think, and it gives people the wrong idea. SORRY I DON'T WANT TO SLEEP WITH YOU, I JUST LIKE FLIRTING WITH YOU.

Okay okay okay I am tired and am going to bed. God, this got so fucking ramble-y at the end. Sorry. Work was a bitch and Mom really wanted to go out to eat. I think I probably would have enjoyed just chilling at home with her while eating a pizza, but she wanted to treat me and I didn't want to hurt her feelings. It was nice though, the whole evening. Best not-birthday ever, so even if tomorrow sucks I can be happy with my new year.

UGH OKAY BED.

Lol noooo....

When you understand, Megan, that what most people really, really want is simply to feel good about themselves, and when you realize that with just a few well-chosen words you can help virtually anyone on the planet instantly achieve this, you begin to realize just how simple life is, how powerful you are, and that love is the key.

I actually hate having my birthday acknowledged. I really try to not tell anyone. I prefer to do things for other people and I always feel awkward receiving gifts and things (not that I don't appreciate it, I just prefer getting stuff for other people as opposed to getting stuff myself). I mean, yeah presents are great, but I'd prefer to buy myself a cake and share it with everyone I care about than having people buy stuff for me. It's like...I feel really selfish. But when I get stuff for other people (especially unexpectedly) their faces light up and I feel as if whatever amount I spent on them, they gave me double in return. But when I receive something, I just feel as if they went out and put all this effort into finding something, and now I need to return the favor because how great is it that they've gone out and thought about me unnecessarily?

Yeah...I'm weird like that.

For example, last night I brought cupcakes to work to share for everyone. And when Kayla found out I brought them because my birthday was the next day, she asked, "Why are you buying yourself cupcakes? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?" BUUUUT~ all night long everyone was coming up to me and thanking me and giving me hugs and they were all just filled with so much gratitude for my gift to them, that I felt as if they had each gone out and bought me something.

Crazy, isn't it? The way we can reward ourselves by simply giving to others what we ourselves would enjoy. ....AMAZING!

So the next time an occasion rolls around when you feel the need to receive things from other people, stop. Look around. Buy them something instead, and feel how good it feels to be doing the beautifully unexpected.
