Unbirthday

According to Wikipedia, an unbirthday is an event that can be celebrated on any day that is not the person's birthday. It was originally coined in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, which became a very well-known song (at least to me) "A Very Merry Unbirthday to You" in the 1951 Disney animated feature film Alice in Wonderland.

And although tomorrow is my official birthday, today is my unbirthday. So, a very merry unbirthday to me, to me!

To those who are celebrating their unbirthdays today, I wish you a very merry one.

To those who are celebrating one tomorrow, just realize it's a national holiday in Canada, commemorating my birth.

By the way, cash is the birthday gift that keeps on giving. Just so you know...

If I were closer, I'd bring an unbirthday uncake to your unhouse to uncelebrate your unbirthday by unsmacking your unpretty unarse. Unhappy Unday to Unyou.

blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...

you are so predictable, doing anything for cash. first there was the dancing, then there was the drinking, then there was the celebrity bashing, and now it's celebrating the anniversary of your cruise down the birth canal. I guess that's as good a reason as any to slip you some bucks.

so, next time I see you, loonies will be placed strategically.

25 oh so young. I think it's the upper limit on chicken though.

I guess I had an unchristmas then. Much how I prefer them.

It is already your unbirthday again at this end of the planet but happy birthday to you (and Canada) at your end.

Now that it is Saturday, I'm hoping you're having a great birthday. Is it weird that I set an alert on my computer to make sure I commented today? Okay it might be.

Many happy (belated) returns. But 'official birthday'? I thought only the queen had one of those? If it's a 'queen' thing, I think I will have one too! Pip pip =]

Steven, I have just spent a delightful afternoon reading your blog, and want to tell you how much I have enjoyed reading it. Also laughed throughout Interview With a Vampire, and wishes I were half as bright as you. I hope it will be OK to link to your blog, so I can find it again! Thanks =]

You learn something new everyday. Now I have a reason to celebrate something today: I've been unbirthed.
