Watch Out! It's Ellen Eve!

Yes it's Ellen Eve!

Also known as the day before my birthday. As the sun goes down on August 27th, people all over the northeast coast begin their Ellen Eve rituals of making mischief as Ellen does all year long. Some practices include:

1. making long lists of things to do and never getting them done.
2. trying desperately to fit into a pair of size 6 pants that never did and never will get past your ass.
3. totally missing in their entirety the Star Wars epic, any reality tv or talent show series, spinning, various high strung yoga practices and any Disney movies in the last fifteen years.
4. having sex while praying to God that your seven year old son doesn't wander into your room in the middle of the night to discuss steam train engines.
5. pretending you still have things like a memory, an attention span and a social life

Cheers!

Ellen, I hope I am as cool as you are some day... a girl can dream! Here's to you and Brian getting some solid alone time between jaunts to the beach and super-hero action figure play time.

Happy happy happy birthday!

xoxo, Heather (and Neo, who, coincidentally, has developed really bad breath since you've been away.)

I made my list and tried on my size 6 pants then drank some G&T's to toast your birthday and to take away the pain of the size 6 pants. I can't believe another Ellen Eve has come and gone and Labor Day is upon us. I think this is going to be your best year yet! A belated happy birthday and all my love
