08/08/08

Eight, or ba, is the luckiest number in Chinese so 08/08/08, the day the 2008 Olympics begin in Beijing is sure to be one helluva day for that part of the world...and ours. But especially for me. If you didn't already think I was lucky enough, well, this August 8th, 2008 also happens to be the day I turn 30!!!

THIRTY??? Really??? I never would have guessed. I was thinking more in the low-twenties. Wow!!! Keep up the good work. :)

When I was a kid, I had a dog that was born on 8/8/88. We tried to come up with a creative name for him, based on the number 8, but we eventually settled on "Jed". Happy birthday.

I have a friend getting married on that day. The number 8 is considered a lucky number in Asia. Maybe you're luck will be tripled when you are 30. Thirty isn't as terrible. I just turned 31 and my sister gave me an over the hill card. Now that's mean!

Welcome to the club! Women are like good wine, they just get better and stronger with age! ;-)

I'm actually on a red-eye flight that night so I hope it's lucky for me too!

Sounds like good things are coming your way. I shall be joining "the club" in about a week, so we'll both be in good company.
