I love my job

Being a Birthday Fairy has to be the best job in the world.  Well...maybe the second best.  The Big Guy in Red who lives at the North Pole has the most awesome job.  Think about it:  he gets to eat whatever he wants, he has a really cool uniform - I'd love to get my hands on those glam boots and that wide shiny belt - and he only works one day a year!

Birthday Fairies, on the other hand, are pretty much always on the job.  We speak dozens of languages and get to travel all over the world.  Oh boy, do I have the stories!  I've worked my Birthday List Magic on kings and queens, presidents and senators, ministers and prime ministers.  But my favorite birthdays are for people just like you.

Someday maybe I'll be assigned to your Birthday List.  Won't that be fun?

Until then, keep making those wishes and don't forget to write them down.  I think it's important to know what you want in life.  Who knows?  Maybe you won't need a Birthday Fairy.

You're smart, strong and beautiful.  Start making your own wishes come true!

Copy Cat

Dear Blog,

Today Abby Jensen came to school dressed exactly like me.  Actually, her outfit was a really cheap knockoff of mine and everybody totally knew that.   It must have been so humiliating for her.  Score!

I live to humiliate Abby Jensen so it's a real time-saver when she does it to herself.  She's been doing that a lot lately.  I think the closer we get to our 16th birthdays, the more desperate she is to enjoy it.

Last Tuesday in homeroom I heard her talking to Jay Kepler about how she wanted her 16th birthday to be -- and I quote -- "the best birthday in the history of 16th birthdays!"

Give me a break.  Her birthday is going to be totally forgettable.  Mine, however, will be so awesome some cable show will want to film it and launch my new TV career.

That will really drive Abby Jensen bonkers.  Score again!

PE hates me

Badminton is scary.  As is volleyball, softball and basketball. I am, admittedly, terrible at sports, but I particularly abhor games where an object hurtles toward you, threatening to put out an eye.

Jay loves sports and is naturally good at almost everything.  I think it's annoying to him that I duck when we play tennis instead of even trying to hit the ball.  Personally, I think ducking is justifiable behavior when a puke-yellowy orb made of carpet-covered ROCK comes flying at your face.  Jay says all I need is a good forehand.  I think I need hockey pads.

So, naturally, I hate PE.  And PE hates me.  Or maybe it's just Miss Duffy, the girls' gym teacher at my school.  I'm sure when she was my age she had bigger dreams than being a whistle-blowing tyrant.  Or maybe not.  Maybe she achieved her life goal when she got a job thinking up ever more painful ways for us to spend an hour of our young lives.

Jay says I'm the most unathletic person he's ever known.  Sometimes I wonder, if I was good at sports, would I like PE?  Would Miss Duffy and I become friends?  Would my quads stop burning after one stupid lap around the stupid track?

I mean, correct me if I'm wrong:  I think shopping is excellent exercise.

Love you!
Abby

I Love Rock & Roll

...but Rock & Roll doesn't necessarily love me.  Yet.

I know I have musical talent.  I can feel it coursing through my veins.  But when I open my mouth to sing a song I made up, it doesn't exactly sound like it does in my head.

Please don't tell my sister Abby what I just told you.  She already thinks there's something wrong with me.

See, the only guitar I have is this toy I got when I was nine.  She thinks I'm fooling myself and wants me to give up my dream.  But she doesn't realize a Real Rocker never gives up on the Music.

One day my musical muse is going to visit and something magical is going to happen.  I just know it.  Until then I'm givin' it all I've got with what I've got:   a toy guitar and a voice that seems to be changing by the second.

Besides, it's fun to torture her with my recently perfected power strum.

Next week:  stage diving!

Birthday Fairies Unite

Who here thinks Celeste should be able to blog if she wants to?  It's a free universe, right?  If human beings can speak their minds, I can too.

But the comments are pouring in from my fellow magical beings.  (You, dear human readers, can't see those comments because they're written in invisible type, which also bugs me.)  They think I need to be a little more discrete.  More mysterious.

For instance, they don't want you to know how much Birthday Fairies like me love pizza.  They're afraid if you humans knew that we crave the cheesy tomatoey bready goodness of a perfect pie, you'd try to bribe us with it.

I think a simple warning will suffice:

Please do not leave a pizza under your pillow along with your Birthday Wish.  it's messy and won't get you anything you want.  Even from your parents.

Thank you.  That is all.

Parents from Another Planet

Sometimes I think I'm adopted.  Ted, my lab partner from freshman bio, is adopted.  Nobody knew because he never talks about it and he looks EXACTLY like his parents.   Really.  You know that website where you can take two people's pix and do this digital mashup and come up with what their child would look like?  If you did that with Ted's mom & dad, you'd get Ted.  Glasses & all.

One time I did that with pix of me and Logan but the baby was kind of unattractive so I deleted it.

With me and my parents, it's crazy -- we look kind of alike, but emotionally and everything, we're completely different.  I'm not even sure we share any DNA -- except the basic stuff that makes you a human instead of a chimp,  I don't even think we speak the same language.  Sometimes when I talk, they just stare at me, like I just switched to Swahili or something.  Occasionally, they get it when I speak slowly enough.  It's exhausting.

That's why I made it one of my 16 Wishes.  When I'm sixteen, my parents will finally understand me.

A gal can dream.

Love you!
Abby
