Friday Five

1. Do you really make wishes when you blow out the candles on your cake?

Well, yes, but these days I usually just wish that we all stay healthy and safe.

2. Have any of the wishes ever come true, if yes?

I think it did the year I got my tricycle. :-)

3. How do you feel about birthdays? (e.g., love the attention, just another day, don't want anyone to know my real age, etc.)

Usually it's "just another day" because it falls during the week. It's impossible to "feel special" at work. What's this real age business all about anyway? You are what you are, whether you're 20 or 50. Can't get away with it. All the lying, face cream and workout sessions aren't going to change it, although the latter will at least keep you in shape.

4. Tell us a favorite gift you've received, or something you'd really like for your next birthday.

Well, my tricycle. :-) Her name was Joyce. :-) One of my best presents was the money James gave me to get more webspace at Simplenet, which got eaten by Yahoo, which I have now escaped from.

What I'd really like but which are too expensive for most anyone to buy are the Taaschen "All-American Advertising" books, which have the "swellest" graphics in them. James said he might manage one if there was a good coupon. I don't want all of them, just the 1900-1910 volume, the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s.

5. What flavor cake?

Chocolate forever! (And not German chocolate; it's not chocolaty enough and I only like coconut fresh or in a Mounds bar. A nice double chocolate fudge cake. It doesn't need frosting; powdered sugar on the top will do. Frosting's too sweet, even the chocolate kind.
