My birthday is coming in 8 days. I was writing my birthday lunch invitation, and I suddenly realized how emo and negative I am as a person. It´s horrible! I have everything I can ask for in my life. I´m a lucky girl who has a beautiful family and good friends who cares for me! I´ve been traveling to unknownnumber ofcountries, having the time of my life here in Buenos Aires and my best friend is coming on Thursday. What more can I ask for?
But I have to say that the invitation I wrote did give me a good laugh. Well, well... I guess you can't be happy 24/7? Thats just creepy.
This is my cozy birthday invitation:
"Unfortunately, I´m leaving my 23, turning 24 and getting 1 year closer to half way to 50. G-reat. Im not much of a party animal who throw huge party and celebrate my birthday like a rock star. Cause I'm not a rock star. I´m just a regular female human being who´s getting old and grey. My wrinkles start to show, my skin is getting looser which effecting my eyes, they look even more like wide screens when I smile. My bum is not that tight any longer, I don't even want to talk about my breast. You get the point?
So, no. No big birthday party. In matter of fact, it´s nothing to celebrate. It´s gonna be a simple and casual lunch at my place. And you, my friend are invited. For your information this is not a birthday celebration. This is a gathering where we can comfort eat and drink away the sorrow, my sorrow. The lunch will take place on my rooftop where there is a pool (bring your speedo) and a 360 degrees view over the city. Come at 5 pm so we can have a meal together and catch the sunset from the rooftop. Cozy and tranquilo.
I´m going to pull out some eatable dishes :), but I appreciate if you are willing to bring something light too.Hope too see you all on this crappy day.

Have a nice day! I´m trying to make empanadas. Being the positive person that I am, I don't think my empanadas is going to be eatable. It´s good to know that the hospital is just nearby.
