It's funny isn't it how you can fool yourself and at the same time fool no-one!

Felt such a sense of pride over the last few days about my little site - my little 15 fifteeen minutes of fame - then what do i do today? Forget my dad's bloody birthday. I forget to call him until 11pm - what an asshole! I suppose i did remember in time, but not enough time for him to hear his grandson sing happy birthday! All this philosophical and theological bullshit means nothing unless you actually embody what you rant about.....it's been a sobering hour.

happy birthday dad, just wish I'd remembered sooner....

Spookily it seems that our fathers share the same birthday.

Maybe we could make a pact to remind each other in future years?

I'm always paranoid I'm going to forget. I think it's the proximity to Christmas - you haven't quite recovered enough to start thinking about yet more celebrations/gifts/cards.

Like the blog btw :-)

Liz - that sounds like a very prudent idea. How early though? a week?

Happy birthday to your dad too. Pray some peace also.....

A week sounds about right.

I will try and remember...

Alternatively, I guess theorretically there should always be a second Monday of the month, just about the right time - maybe we can get the GB Mgmt Grp secretary to schedule a reminder for the pair of us in the Agenda?
