changing your birthday whenever you feel like it.

i just was on amazon.com, under my personal, account page and i saw a rather odd link that read: "CHANGE YOUR BIRTHDAY." now, correct me if i'm wrong but wouldn't it seem a bit shady for someone to go through with that link? I mean, is that a cheap ploy (coy?) to get people and catch those hackers trying to assume other peoples' identities? "Oh that's right, my birthday isn't July 14, 1982, it's actually January 3, 1969....how could I forget?" there's something fishy going on here, and i don't like it one bit. i'm stupid about things like this, so maybe there's a good reason for this link...i just laughed, shook my head and couldn't believe it when i read it. oh well. i'm sure it's probably just me. (but really...since when has anyone had the freedom to just up-and-change their own birthday????)

I always liked the idea of having an un-birthday like in Alice in Wonderland. hey - did you know shorb's my neighbor now?

I'd change mine to sometime in the summer or spring... right now it's just way to close to Christmas... (Dec 22)

Yeah chalupa, i just found that out yesterday. You're lucky. Shorb is sooooooooo coooool. Seriously. And Matt, i wouldn't wish too hard...i'm a july b-day and when i was young, the whole 'celebrate the school birthdays' thing was just painful in my elementary years. i always envied those people with fall or spring b-days....us summer ones always got the shaft. but i suppose at dec. 22 that's the worst b/c you are off school and it's by christmas. sorry bud...my mom's is the 23rd. i've come to realize though the most selfless people have b-days around x-mas. so that's a very good thing right?
