Get in Shape, (Birthday) Girl!

Today I was planning on sharing a post in which I present to you an Eminem rap with a vegan slant, but you’re going to have to wait for my debut as Veginem for two reasons:

1.) I got a surprise invitation to hop back over to the Powder Room to talk about my extensive experience as a youthful “Get In Shape, Girl!” instructor. Apparently my first visit over there didn’t scare them away because I was invited back, so I’ll polish up my ghetto lyrics this weekend and you can read about Lyrca instead.


2.) It’s my birthday today so I can do whatever I want, which is basically to pretend it’s not my birthday. But a fun fact is that I was born on 8-1-81 and weighed 8lbs 1 oz. In other words, I was totally OCD from the womb.


Crown. Food. Not much has changed.

But as the birthday girl I’m going to be bossy and tell you to head over to the Powder Room and read my post, check back here soon for my tentative debut as a vegan Polish rapper and maybe buy my book if you need a nice coaster, doorstop or something to read on the crapper.

And if you want to get me a gift, my favorite flower is pesto pizza.

Peace out, yo. (Sorry. Just practicing.)

  1. 1981! I thought that you were older (from your cool smoking picture).
    Happy Birthday.
    Sorry, no present. I love pesto and pizza, too.

  2. Hahaha!! Your posts never fail to crack me up.

    Happy birthday! Make some ridiculous requests, and do some ridiculous things, and after everything you do today, follow it up with, “It’s my birthday.” That’s how I like to roll on my birthday. 😉

  3. Happy Birthday Happy Birthday Happy Birthday!! WOOHOO!

  4. I am jealous of you womb OCD. That’s freakin’ awesome.
    Doc is booking my c-section soon & she’s not giving me an option to choose a specific (evenly numbered) date. WHAT IF MY BABY IS BORN ON THE 7TH or 9TH? HOW CAN I LOVE IT? IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?

  5. For my birthday this year I started pretending it wasn’t too. It’s one less hassle in life I have to deal with. All the same, Happy Birthday, Abby.

    • Yeah. I’ve been this way for about a decade, but no one seems to listen 😉 It’s nice to hear nice things though so I tend to give them a pass…you included. 🙂

  6. Happy birthday!
    OCD from the womb. Awesome.

  7. Happy Birthday, OCD Princess!

  8. Happy birthday, you young thing!

  9. I look forward to veginem. so much.

    sending you all kinds of hugs and love and thank yous and virtual pesto pizza (wish I could – non creepy – show up at your door with one), hugs and more hugs.


  10. Wow, I am taking a bit of a rest from Blogging owing to writing duties but I like to wander over to my favourite bloggers on occasion and I’m so glad I did that today because it means I can wish you happy birthday. Lets hope you get some treats and fun. Very best wishes from across the pond

  11. Happy birthday! And congrats on getting a gig at In the Powder Room 😀

  12. Is it weird that I’m so numerically OCD I’m kind of jealous of your birthday #’s.

  13. Happy Birthday.

    Damn. It feels good to be a gangsta.

  14. Usually the about page is fittest for general compliments, but this is just as good. Besides, you have the same birthday as me, except yours was probably on a Saturday.
    I like your humour. It’s calm, quite and gives me time to pronounce my laughs, but more importantly, you have many posts which should keep me busily entertained from more important tedious things.

  15. Happy Birthday, Abby!!!!!!!!!

  16. Happy Birthday, Tiger lover

    I want to see what you do with “I’m Not Afraid…of Okra”

  17. Happy Birthday. In the interest of pretending it wasn’t your birthday, please strike my original statement from the record.
    8-1-81 and 8.1: you didn’t stand a chance.

  18. I’m late as usual, but hope your birthday was as special as you are, Abby. Now I’m heading over to see what kind of trouble you’ve stirred up at “The Powder Room” my prolific friend. 🙂

  19. I missed your birthday! Crap. I suck. Well, happy belated anyway. You have 8181. I have 22775. Math is fun. 😉

  20. Happy belated birthday! My due date is 11/13/13 and the obsessive in me is hoping for the lovely, clean 11/12/13.
