It's My Birthday!

The Entire KBW means the Blog to me & please don't feel left out because some fast folks got wind of this sooner & decided to surprise me. Hugz 2 U all!
11/22: the day I celebrate my birthday. Yes, a year older & hopefully wiser. Behind me lies a year full of stuff I'd love to remember for the rest of my life...as well as some sh*t I'd rather not, but that's life. A new year full of hope lies ahead, will take it as it comes & make something greater out of it.
Strange but every year since I was 16, my birthday has been the busiest of all days in November. There's got to be a reason behind it, I may know it when I turn 40...That's when life begins, right?LOL!
Today I'll be working around the clock to beat two deadlines for clients in two different time zones so I will officially celebrate my b-day tomorrow. Do feel free to join in the fun if you have my address(wink!), know my phone number, IM add, email or you'd like a blog meet up. If you happen to be around the block then you'll mos def run into me & T-Joy(ful), Matt & Wei getting into some crazy fun stuff. For everyone who kept asking, nagging, threatening & even blackmailing about unedited(?) pics of this blogger here's a peek into some of my fam & circle of friends I hang with on the regular. (Best viewed L-a-r-g-e)

Thank yous (in no particular order): Mom & Dad for bringing me into this world and for raising me right. My siblings represented by Dada Aisha(middle left column) for the early morning B-day greetings (N'nani kama wewe Dada?) T-Joy(ful) (middle right column): dearest babygal for having my back(love U to bits hon!) Thrity: for the beautiful e-card(kisses 4 U & hugs to Pervez for me). Poi: for being 1st KBW to get thru call at exactly midnite(how nice of u fellow scorpio?), Abeid in Cotonou: thanks for the card (glad u remembered), Farhiyya: calling while tired & sleepy (U blaze up Toronto!).Guess: for the early morning email & msgs & for shouting me out in public jana(thanks rub-a-dub babe!), Nick for IM wishes(bro #3, u rock!), Milo untouchable on IM (bro #2, mention them plz!) Adrian IM sting (fellow scorpios sting!LOL!), FarmGal on IM, (stay strong:)!), SpiceBear on IM(thanks in b/n doing papers!)

Thanks everybody for your patience while my computer was acting up. Now it's up & running like Paul Tergat. Back with replies to comments & yes, I have to meet two photo requests from last post. Coming up in next post, promise:)

A bell that marks the coming of
A time of festive joy and love,
A time to treasure life and love.

(disregarding anyone who had a day off or lives in Kenya, I am here first, if you have any objections (Aunties, much respect, you dont fall under this 'Claimer')see me outside, we can sort it (proferring a girly lefty here).

Akiey, babe - U know this is a great day for you and your special self should enjoy every surprise it garners (wink wink). Hope you have fun and run outside and roll in the snow (I would recommend a roll in the hay but what do I know, eh?). Life, as we know it, is unpredictable, but whatever it chucks your way, enjoy the day, and celebrate that you are alive, healthy, happy and warm - and if you need warming up.... hmm.. er..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABE/BRO/BLOGGER :)

Happy Birthday Akiey!
I made sure that I made it here before your special day ended. You know that I didn't forget, but I was just like you today, extremely busy. Nevertheless I have some special things planned for you, so being busy was not in vain. So baby sit back, relax and let me take over the steering wheel....LOVE YOU!

Happy Birthday rafiki Akiey do you know that it was a special day when you were born I have some friends whose son and daughter were born on this day but different mwakas. So you are now on the lsit of my favourite people. I hope you had a wonderful time . Yes and life really does start/begin at 40- the things that will bother you at 39 suddenly shift and move from being problems to challenges at 40!!! Uwongo mtupu live your life at this age like you are meant to. Happy Birthday

Thanks for adding me to your list of favourite people:) I feel very special already & also to know that I have "twins" on your side of the world? Super good, don't know anyone born on this day so thanks for the insight!

Milo-Bro#2!, After your escapades from kina Kinyonga's relas, Having Car Trobles, Pouring when it Rains etc, can't blame you for getting here when we're about to cut the cake, LOL! Now, grab yourself the biggest piece of Kipepeo-prepared Tiramisu!
- U bet it was full of muenjeyos some of which can't be elaborated,LOL!

K.i.d.a.d.a, No way can you be left out of the fun side of things so always sneak in & rave to the max! Glad U got here & mob thanks for the wishes & am sure God/Allah is watching over me/us. Thanks for the reminder K.i.d.a.d.a :)!

-Had fun, the much that my exhausted body could allow but am glad I did. The drinking part U know I leave out. Who knows what I'd do if I drank,huh!?
-Thanks for the lunch invite, am bringing my favourite chop sticks, let me know when so I can work my appetite:)!

Shiroh No shame so long as you got here gal, second(out of respect for Nick!) or last, glad U made it. Thank you much!

Shiroh Pt2, It's a very small world & it wouldn't shock me if you do actually know me. Pray tell if you do..or if you know someone who knows me...:)

Kipepeo Now U know there's no way KBW members could mention cake without naming Tiramisu, and there's no mentioning Tiramisu without thinking of Kipepeo, right? Thanks for the vitually delicious cake & forgive me for munching away on the biggest chunks of cake..tis my b-day isn't it? Asante sana & please have mshakiki, kaimati, vitumbua & madafu for me when you go home in Dec:)

This is your robotic God-son here! You are welcome. G might want you to believe that she is the resourceful one but she never appreciates, or acknowledges anything that I do - and takes all the credit for herself. The cheek of the woman :(

If it wasnt for me, she wouldnt have remembered your Birthday, or even sent them flowers. I have to push, prod, shove and even scratch her with my robotty hands to make her comply.

Anyway, we (I am including her in this) are glad you had a nice/fun/roll in the snow with hay day. How about some stale cake to show your gratitude.. hmmm.. you humans have such selective memory..tsk tsk :)

Enjoy the rest of your year G'dad LOL

Wassapangaz, Thanks for the wishes, I had a very nice b-day & I too pray for a great, blessed year ahead:)

Marvin, Nice to have you come around rob G-son:)! You crack me up with your insistence that G wouldn't remember such a day if it wasn't for your push-kick-prod....hey,easy boooy, don't hurt the fair lady now. She adores you U know and she wouldn't mind taking you along on her upcoming vacation.

Stale cake huh? How would your robotty self know about such delicacies son? Go see what G makes in the morning in her skylit kitchen as neighbours gawk wondering 'what she got cooking'.
Take care g-son & get packing b4 it's too late!

The Acolyte, You can never be too late either Aco. Thanks for getting here & asante for the wishes.

Medusa, You are 1st here, mos def...won't dare burst ya bubble Medusa...even if you got here 1st coming in the side door.
-Geee! I am pleased to know I share such an important day with someone that special to you:)
Infinite thanx for the wishes, looking forward to a greater year, more chances and getting better at everything....same wishes to you Medusa!
