Is it wrong...
 
Is it wrong that for my birthday today, all I want is to sleep late, do nothing, and not be bothered/annoyed by anyone?

I don't care about celebrating my birthday either. Although it's always nice to get a cake. ;)

eta: happy birthday.

You can try hiding out in your home Runner, but the Sandmen are gonna get you eventually. ;) Nice avatar, BTW. I'm assuming that means you're turning 30?

No, there's nothing wrong with that, if that's what you want to do.

Happy birthday.

No it's not wrong

On my birthday last year I wanted the same, my sister et all wanted to take me out to dinner, I told them I didn't feel like going anywhere and just wanted to stay home and eat ice cream and watch a movie, guess what I did, I stayed home. I didn't want to be bothered, I didn't' want to go anywhere, and I didn't want anyone to call me. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it.

All I want is to have my birthday be an ordinary day. I don't want cards, gifts etc. I find it amusing that other people think the day of my birth is actually worth acknowledging, let alone celebrating. It's one out of 365 or so days, whats the big deal?

I'm getting the best of both worlds. My birthday party will be Saturday, when I will get a big birthday breakfast and all my presents. My actual birthday will be on Wednesday, when I will sit around the shanty, mama, with some Twisted Tea and a good book or two. Maybe a DVD. Very likely a stroll in the Blue Hills or something.

Depends on if he's a fan of the book or the movie. But I'm guessing 30. :rommie:

I got a new lawn mower for my birthday (which is next month). I'm also easy to please.

In any case, happy birthday. Since it is your day, do nothing if that's what you want.

If that's what you want you should do that, Data. You aren't obligated to do something just because it's your birthday. However, you only turn 30 once and I threw a party when I did.
Personally, I prefer to do something nice on my birthday, even if I do it by myself, e.g. going to the cinema.

Anyway, happy birthday!

It's not wrong but on the other hand, if sleeping and doing nothing is your idea of a good time, maybe it would be interesting to check if you are suffering from depression.
