Guess what this WEEK is? It's my birthday WEEK.
Yup - I get a whole week. One day just isn't enough for this diva. And yes, you can bet your skinny asses that Rambo is completely on board and down with this WEEK. I'm quietly and slowly and sneakily making my way into making it a whole birthday MONTH..but for now - it's a week.
Speaking of birthday months...one of my dear friends, Mrs. Fatass, has a birthday MONTH. (She's my hero.) And since she's my hero it's only appropriate that I steal her idea for a birthday suckhole extravaganza on my blog too. I had the honor of being part of her "suckhole" last year and now I want my own - just for a week.
Here's a little excerpt from her post about what a birthday suckhole extravaganza is. If you want to read the whole post, go here. It's brilliant I tell you - brilliant.
Here's how she explains it for herself:
You know those people in the world who just NEED NEED NEED attention? It’s like they have this giant suckhole in their heart and if you are to be friends with them then you just have to accept that you will be called upon to shower much love and attention their way, because they are needy.
Well, I like to pretend I am NOT one of those people.
But that sound that you started hearing last night when the clock struck midnight and August officially ended was the sound of my giant suckhole, well, starting to suck. Because September is my birthday month and I’m ready for some good old fashioned attention. Fill my giant suckhole people. It’s what I want.
(Now THERE is some quality writing, huh?)
Freaking brilliant right? For me it's October and it's this WEEK.
She had her mom post for her, good friends, her husband, and even ME! I had the best time writing a suckhole post for her. And as part of the deal, the next year she graciously wrote a birthday post for me here.
This year I'm hosting my very own full-fledged extravaganza with posts from 6 women who fill my giant suckhole of a heart with love, wisdom and wit. I love them each more than they will ever know.
So stay tuned for the suckhole. And if you don't like the word suckhole - please blame Mrs. Fatass. It was her idea - I just copied it with her blessing of course.
Let's the suckhole-ing begin...........Monday!
