I love myself today

Well, that special day is here. The day when all of Karenworld rejoices at the anniversary of the birth of their empress. Stores are closed and all essential services have been cut back for the day. Ah yes.

The day started out strangely since at about 12:05 this morning the cat showed me his appreciation and undying devotion by puking on my floor. At least he had the decency to jump off my bed before he started that dreadful heaving. Thankfully, Scott, being my obedient servant (at least for the day) got out of bed to clear up the mess.

Then at 8:50 this morning I had a dentists' appointment. Why I knowingly scheduled one of the things I detest most on the one day I love most is beyond me. At least I got to leave the house and tell everyone who I came in contact with that it was my birthday. I keep telling people that it's my "first 39th birthday" but I don't believe in lying about my age. Why should I when I look so effing awesome?

So now the rest of my special day is laid out at my feet. Scott suggested we all go out for a meal later and I think that'll be really fun. And I baked my most favourite ever cake for dessert. Yes, I baked my own birthday cake. Is it my fault that in Karenworld no one can rock an oven as good as me? Or speak english apparently.

Anyhoo, no family gifts yet but I'll keep you posted. I did get an awesome bunch of CDs from my best MySpace pal Chris which arrived yesterday. Thanks, sweetie! I got birthday calls from my best friend Kathy in the UK, my dad and my friend Paula. And I know that Live88.5 played my favourite Bif Naked song just for me to belt out in the car on the way home from the dentist. I'm in heaven. No, better yet, I'm the Queen of Karenworld.

I Love Myself Today

You left me like a broken doll
In pieces as I took the fall
for you, you dumb chump!
You left me free-falling like space junk
Burning up in the atmosphere of life

Well I sound like a philosopherbut I'm a fool who's off her rocker
'Cause I let you in my heart that one last time
I've had enough, made up my mind
I'm gonna get up and out and wahhh!

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever

Well look at you you're all puffed up
In that big red truck- but you're outta luck (this time)
Well, that's tough
'Cause I'm on fire- too hot to touch
with a chatroom full of lovers on the line
Gonna step right up. Spit shine my soul
I'm gonna be proud and loud and outta control!
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever

I'm lookin' in the mirror and I like what I see:
I've lost the fear & the horror that's been eating at me
'Cause being with you is like a hangman's noose
I was living my life in dead man's shoes
I've had enough. Made up my mind
I'm gonna get up and out and wahhh!

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
I'm cool, I'm calm
I'm gonna be okay! Uh huh
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now

I love myself today
Not like yesterday
You're dead and gone
I'm gonna get my way
I love myself today
Not like yesterday
Take another look at me now
'Cause it's your last look
Your last look forever!!

I love myself today!
