a new rule.

i'm making a new rule.
wishes are to be made before the big day.
that way they can have enough time to come true.
i wish for snow.
i'd like a nice covering of thick fluff, and big flakes falling between 7:30am and 8:15am tomorrow morning.
again.
1 out of 26 so far.
lucky 27??!!
not the best odds, i know.
especially with the weather forcast i especially tuned in for last night.
but a girl can dream.
can't she??!!
and i really did blow my candle out.
closed my eyes and everything for added luck.
...
is 8:19am too early to open up the advent calendar?
i think not;-)
welcome december.

WELCOME.
so glad you're here.
...
PBS, i understand you need to earn money for your station, but why did you choose 8am to do your fundraising.
i don't watch you that early.
i barely even listen.
ok, that's a lie.
i know all of the songs and names of the characters.
the pork loin really watches though.
and super why is not on.
your talking people are on.
and super why is not.
did i mention super why is not on?
let's not let this happen again.

If we can't have snow for your birthday then it has to be a rule that we at least get it for Christmas right?

You look great! I blow up like a blimp throughout my pregnancy. And a Happy Birthday to you tomorrow...if I dont happen to get on the internet tomorrow at least i wished you it one day early. Have a great day, and think snow?! I am praying for sunshine here...i am not a fan of being cold.

I must be completely out of it. I don't even know what super why is.

W-H-Y that spells WHY! Super WHY, he's your guy!

And, I have to ask, besides the berries and candle, what else is in the mug?? Something yummy I hope.

Happy Birthday! As for your wish, doesn't it make it void with you tell people your wish? Isn't it supposed to be thought and not spoken? You can't tell a wish or it won't come true? Or was that just me and my childhood? Because in marriage at least, I better tell my wish or it sure isn't going to be granted! Happy birthday and big wishes for big fluffy snow!
