Happy February 23! This day holds a very special place in my heart because…dun dun dun…it’s MY BIRTHDAY!!!

Thus, on this most glorious of days, I ask you to join me in celebration of all things…myself (if there’s ever a day when it's ok to be self-centered it’s today, right?).

That means that I ask you to:

Eat some cake (I haven’t yet, but it’s only a matter of time).

Run outside (yep – check – my morning run was a bit of a struggle, but as always, I’m glad I did it).

Read a book. Or at least start one. I’m almost done with mine!

And finally, I have one big birthday favor to ask of all of you. Just think of this as your gift to me – I provide you with daily amusement, decadent pictures, and witty prose all out of the goodness of my heart – and all I ask in exchange is this one birthday gift:

Tell people about EatRunRead! In honor of my birthday, post a link to my blog as your facebook status, tweet about me, email your friends, poke your head over the edge of your cubicle and tell your coworkers, send an office email to those people you like (not that I advocate neglecting your work duties!), and if you have a blog - link to me!

So just go ahead and do that now. I’ll wait.

Ok - I am now forever in your debt.

And now, all you new readers, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with EatRunRead. Awesome, right?
