Happy Birthday to Me

To hell with my wishlist, I had the most mind-blowing birthday! So the just started on a usual note, and I was generally at peace with myself, musing about how old I am and what I have achieved so far in life. I spent the better part of the day chilling with a couple of friends and family. Then by evening I was all disappointed that I hadn't cut a cake for my B'day. I didn't want to be whiny and be a pain cuz I thought "Ok everyone's busy being a working day and all. "
Then I got home and mum also was around, and I started smelling a fish cuz she was not her usual self and was trying really hard to make me stay put in my room. She was very sweetly making conversation with me about everything under the sun. And I even heard a few stray noises which I conveniently ignored. The doorbell rang at one point and mom said it was just the neighbourhood kids being bratty. Then I thought "Alright its just my imagination and nothing really was happening around." Finally, after two hours of my initial suspicions, my mum says "Lets go watch some TV" and I followed her with a broad grin on my face. Then SURPRISE! Alafia, Saleema, a, Sakina and Yusuf were crooning Happy Birthday with very broader grins of their own. There were balloons everywhere and some fancy decoration and I was SOOO thrilled. And the cake! Goodness, it was just waiting to be dug into, but some of it ended up on my face (see here) :/ There was a huge pile of pizzas and I kept counting and recounting them wondering who on earth will eat so many. We all settled down to have pizza and juice and fish tikka and then walked in another SURPRISE, Hema Ranjani and Prabu!
And the evening went on with lot of cheer and excitement, I was all hyper hyper flitting from one person to another. I felt so good to have such wonderful beautiful friends and parents who made my day such a special one. Kudos to all of u! I'm open to more surprises and gifts in life :p

Tere liye kya kuch kiya...allu and me felt like terrorists in your house! BTW we also discovered that you are far too dumb than we thought!! 2 terrorists in your house for 2 hours and you "conveniently ignored". Hell! your mom should appoint a watchman to take care of the house! lol ....
