Birthdays & Me

Two weeks right before my birthday and the questions begin "What would you like to do on your birthday?"

After last year's mega success of a surprise birthday party perfectly managed by sister dearest..it was THE perfect birthday...and too hard to topple..we're talking about finding crushes I had in high school that she somehow managed to locate and convince them to come! It was a BLOODY BLAST!

This year..I'm lost and can't decide what I'd like to do? I come from a family who is a great believer in the importance of celebrating birthdays...I mean I could put on this show of "Oh..no..not another birthday...who cares..I'm not going to celebrate" but I'd be lieing...'coz I do care..It's my very own New Year..it's the day that I was born..only me...at that exact time..I came into this world...nobody was born at that moment..that second...but me, that exact day...that exact year except ME...so I'm gonna celebrate it damn it!

The question is...how? Do you stick to your nearest and dearest and have a cozy dinner and end it just like any other dinner except they tell you "Happy Birthday" and give you a few gifts?...Do you attempt to break the routine and invite people that you haven't seen in ages...frantically looking for a DJ who has an extemelly funny name that you can't even pronounce and who shows up with only half of his stuff because some other big party was going on and the rest of his stuff is "over there"...Do you pretend that it's not even your birthday and secretly feel sorry for yourself that nobody cares! OR...and this one is my favorite...Invite all the bloggers to celebrate with you at a Starbucks that's been especially reserved for you then watch who actually does show up with a gift knowing that they're giving the gift to a total stranger that they know so well?!:)

I have two weeks to make up my mind and I'm so tempted with the last choice..what do you think?

I do not require extra food, am sure most gurls will just stand and not eat, hence, food is always there, even though I do not eat much.

I can't waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait!
2nd option!

At 7:12 PM, Blogger LaiaLy_q8 said...

the last one 7adda 5oosh fekraa i guess you could do it if your that kind of person :D hehehe

 
At 9:22 PM, Blogger The Solar Alchemist said...

Well i guess you choose the option that would make you the happiest!
oh & does your b-day happen to be on the 6th cause if it is it's one day b4 Krispydixies'

My suggestion would be as follows:

Keep March 8th for you, your family and extremely close friends! Then go out with a BANG on the 9th!

You could use the following schedule:

9th AM:
Breakfast with the family

9th PM: (LUNCH)
Have close friends invite you to lunch

9th PM: (late afternoon to early evening)
Blogger meet-up at a coffee shop! (Prefferable a meet-up where gender is not an issue! In other words guys and girls can come! If you want to make a blogger mee-up for guys then for girls then you would have to keep it hush-hush and meet up at 2 different places)

9th PM: (late evening)
I can hold an S&M session dedicated to you! ;o) Invite close friends!

9th PM: (Night to early moring)
PA-TAY! Hay! Ho! :oP

WHAT DO YOU THINK? SOUNDS GOOD? CAN I START PLANNING?

 
At 9:40 PM, Blogger samboose said...

I am SOOO touched on Miss Cosmos behalf!!

 
At 9:50 PM, Blogger The Stallion said...

Me glad you like! *blush*

I still want to know what Ms. Cosmo has to say though!

 
At 7:02 AM, Blogger Delicately Realistic said...

Guys! Don't worry there won't be a gender issue :P you are all welcome :P

At 10:19 AM, Blogger MissCosmoKuwait said...

jan6a...you rock! I'm much rather have you come and finally meet you than the Fedexed gift...but that was sooo sweet..:)

purg...how about you be in charge of catering...Leos always have the best taste..:)

toomz...so you're in? Starbucks or Costa...and which neighborhood would you prefer?

the11muse..hail to PISCES! Aren't we just the best!..:)...so would you come?

Samboose...thanks habeebti...but I think I'll need your input as to what to finally do...you know us pisces can be a tad indecisive sometimes..:)...I would love balloons...you think Starbucks would be offended if we got our own food?!!

7tenths...naaa...Starbucks coffee won't cost that much..;)

Dr. Lost...Bloger gathering sounds like so much fun....so when do you get your exam results? I don't wanna be there incase you don't do so well and blame it on my birthday!..:)

 
At 10:28 AM, Blogger MissCosmoKuwait said...

Stallion...aaahhh...aint that just about the sweetest thang you ever heard..you are too special man..:)...thanks for the lovely gesture..I am soo moved by it..you are just way too sweet for this world...I'll keep you posted what I decide...but in all cases I'll definately need your help...i.e. in the event I end up having it at Starbucks..I will be in need of bouncers that screen at the door...and I'm nominating you to be in charge...you get to tell the 3agad...mamnoo3 el de7'ool...and you get to let the cool people in...that includes cool guys too...hhhmm...on second thought maybe I'll have you screen the girls and a female blogger screen the guys...that way we guarantee good looking girls and guys...wouldn't want you to be the only good looking guy there..:)..so...whatchya tink? :)

At 9:24 PM, Blogger The Stallion said...

I don't know what movie it was from but the quote goes as follows, "I says, is that what you say is what I say!" :oP

In other words what you say is always right! I am with you!

I have a suggestions if you wanna to Starbucks! We can take over the top floor of the 3dayliyah Starbucks! Shrayich?

 
At 9:57 PM, Blogger ZinZinQ8 said...

I say start out with breakfast with family & cousins at Zait oo Za3tar OR Waterlemon Marina. After that, go to Spa Time and get a scalp message. It is AMAZING! Go back home and watch a really great movie with siblings. Then at night get ready to go to Blue Elephant with friends and pig out like crazy on Thai food. A lot of that road is just truck drivers so sing your heart out with your freinds on the way back home.

At 9:59 AM, Blogger 7tenths said...

No I meant as in for the gift, not that cheap! :P

 
At 12:47 PM, Blogger MissCosmoKuwait said...

the11muse...in London huh?..how exciting...even if you end up in class on your birthday!..Thanks so much for your good wishes and wish the same to you..just remember when you're sitting in class...someone is wishing you a Happy Birthday all the way from Kuwait across this blogger world!..:)

Nunu...LOl..that's so sweet...thank you...a red head at my party..a red head at my party...:)

DR...7abeebti...yubba 3ezmay...khalas...chiny qarart a3zim el kel...feeeeehaaaaa!..:)

Stallion...I've been sitting here for ages wondering what movie that was...I know it..but I just can't remember!...so here's the deal..I believe you and Samboose had a beter idea of another place...I'm leaving it up to you guys..

zinzin...thanks love for the suggestions...but I was trying to find something completely out of the ordinary...scalp massage at spa time....eating with my siblings..picking out with friends...all the time...are things I do on a weekly basis..ya3nee ma akoon sawait shay yideed..know what I mean!

 
At 12:58 PM, Blogger MissCosmoKuwait said...

Dr. Lost...for a second there..I did think you were serious!...afaa...you mean that private jet idea wasn't real..it sure sounded good though..but if you offered it to me to fly out to Paris to do some shopping would've sounded even better..:)...It looks like I'm close to making up my mind..but I figure I'll keep hearing more suggestions just in case..:)

laialy...lol...akoo matha 3an taking risks...but I can't remember it now...bass ana tesara3t o mo qasdee athen feech...I like your shoes too much..:)

purg...shino short notice...it's two weeks from now! Leos are usually more hospitable than that..you must have a Capricorn rising sign or something..:)

7tenths...I knew daaaat! Just meant that no gift was necessary...work with me partner..we're supposed to have our comedy act ready by now and be in sync...:)

 
At 10:34 PM, Blogger Purgatory said...

Not this time, next time once I have an idea.

 
At 2:08 AM, Blogger 7tenths said...

My bad..

 
At 2:59 AM, Blogger U.E. said...

Stay late, stay late, I wanna join! But what's with all this 'good lookin' peeps only'? It's the plain-janes like me that make you look so deliciously exotic! So open the doors and shine on my friend. ;-)

 
At 11:16 PM, Blogger MissCosmoKuwait said...

purg...gotta any ideas lately??

7tenths...no..my main man...you not bad...it takes a while to perfect an act like ours...so practice makes perfect..:)

unknown...plain jane?? honey..you are far from that! Aren't we being modest..:)...you my dear would be one of the guest of honors...and I'm pretty sure our bouncers would see to it!..:)

Nope, sorry, waiting to see what happens
