Earth Day, Schmearth Day


Yeah, I know it's Earth Day, Okay?

Save the earth, yada yada, yada. Or, as my five-year-old says when he sees litter, "be a good earth protector" (pWotector, is really how he says it).


But you know what Earth Day?


You're hogging my spotlight!


I don't care if it's your 40th anniversary this year!


You know why?



Because today is my BIRTHDAY!!!


And I don't want to talk about being green on my birthday. But I do like the color green.


I want to drive all around town in my SUV, with the air conditioner and radio on full blast.

Eat tons of meat and dairy products (no, not organic).

Turn all of the lights on in the house.

Run the water for eons.

Wash all my clothes in hot water.

Get rip roaring drunk and throw the wine bottles away in the same big garbage can as the other trash.

Oh, and use tons of plastic bags!


There I said it. That's right. Uh huh.


*slinks away to hide in the corner with a big ol' piece of cake*




Just kidding, earth. I am proud to share my birthday with you!

See what happens when I deprive myself of carbs for so long?

Happy Birthday, Christine!

The best thing about it being your birthday is that you can do whatever you want. Okay, maybe not everything. The cops might not go for the 'it's my birthday' excuse. ;)

Have a great one!!!

YOU TELL THEM GIRL!!! It's your birthday and you should be able to do whatever you want!!

Try not to get arrested, so have legal fun!!!

I do love how your son says to be a good earth protector though, that's very cute!

Pamela said...

Well Happy freaking New Year to you!!!!! I love how you socked it directly at the Earth. You crack me up you crazy chick. Any big plans? You know, aside from all meat and wine you'll be consuming?

Every time my hubs catches me throwing a plastic bottle into the trash he shakes his head and says, "rebel."

Happy Birthday. I was going to say you need to eat a real bread-wrapped sandwich.

Happy Birthday!!!
I have a friend who gets so angry when she hears "save the earth." She said and I quote, "The audacity of people who think they can actually save the earth that what is...a billions of years old."

Happy belated birthday!!! I really do appreciate your continued kind words over on my blog -- they do make me feel like we're in that contest together.

Have a great weekend and hopefully we hear something in normal time, not slow-as-freakin-molasses-publishing-time : )
