Okay, it’s not really, but it sure felt like it on Saturday, October 17, 2009, when I celebrated Practical Paralegalism’s first birthday in California with the Los Angeles Paralegal Association at its 33rd Annual October Conference, “Powering Up for the Future”.
They even made me my favorite dessert: chocolate mousse.
Well, to be honest, they made it for all the attendees, and some of us ate ours and thought it was so delicious that we seriously considered telling lies to get more of it. But I think the waiters had heard that lame “Hey, I didn’t get any dessert!” more than once already.
And you won’t believe what I found in the hotel entertainment center while searching for the TV remote: a big tray of treats THAT I COULD EAT ANY TIME I WANTED TO. It really was my birthday, except that I had to pay for what I ate if I decided I wanted those Cocktail Jelly Beans. (Despite having lived in the South all my life, I did not fall off the turnip truck yesterday.)
Do you know how hard it is to sleep at 2 a.m. with a super-sized can of peanut M&Ms in your room?
I’m going to be blogging more about my wonderful experience with the terrific Los Angeles Paralegal Association, but I just wanted to tell you, “It’s my birthday!” (even though my Mama would give me the evil eye and say that’s not very good manners.)
Hey, I think over 500 posts deserves another round of chocolate mousse. Just sayin'....
