Hey there, Awesome Readers!
It’s my birthday and I’m actually working on a “real” post, which you can read later today because it’s my *gulp* 50th and I have a lot to say about that. Meanwhile though, I wanted to share this creepy thing that happened to me this morning …
I woke up like every other morning (which already proves it’s going to be a great day because ALIVE), and as always, went through my routine in a state of still-half-asleep-and-groggy …
Let the dogs out … fill the dog bowls with food and water … let the dogs back in … press the Keurig button for coffee #1 … let dogs out again … grab coffee cup and settle in front of computer to write …
All of which takes about 13 seconds. (Apparently half-asleep is my most productive time of day.)
Except that I must have Googled something last night because when I woke my computer from sleep mode, the first screen to pop open was the Google page and low-and-behold I see this!
That’s when my ninja instincts woke up because HOW DOES GOOGLE KNOW IT’S MY BIRTHDAY?
And then I heard myself say, “Awwww. Have you been waiting up all night to tell me that?”
Which only further creeped me out because since when am I on a talking basis with Google?
So here’s what I’m thinking:
One, either Google spies on me during my sleep. Or two, since I was born at 12:30 a.m., something happened to my brain at precisely the time that I turned 50 and I am now senile.
PS. I don’t usually post twice in one day but since it’s my birthday, I’m inviting you to come back later today for It’s my birthday – Part 2. Kind of like a party only instead of cake and balloons and those annoying blow horn thingies, we’re going to celebrate like grown-ups: with words and words and more words. It’s a BYOB so feel free to show up with a glass of wine. Ah heck. Bring the whole bottle. It is my birthday, after all.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONA!!!!!!!!!!!!! MUAH!!!!!!
Haha! Kinda creeped me out when that happened on my last birthday too! Happy Birthday even though it’s your 50th, in fact I love my 50’s and I only have about 3 more weeks as a 50-something…talk about “Gulp!”. 🙂
I am looking forward to Part 2 of your birthday post.

Happy day, Mona!! Don’t worry, you’re not the only one Google spies on. There’s a reason I turn my phone to airplane mode when I go to sleep at night… 😉
Happy birthday!! I hope you have a super day!
LOL. Happy belated birthday, even if the scary Googlebots are spying on you.
It is Louise that left you that message. She did not know if you got it or not.
