How the hell did it get here so soon

Yesterday was my birthday.
After birthday-walk, birthday-cake,
birthday-talk I must have felt
some need to cope with the
inevitable, so I made this:

That´s me, on my first day at
school, 47 years ago...

I used a tea-dyed napkin, and I didn´t
crochet the cobwebs, of course.
And I went to bed much too late again,
of course...

There are problems here with
uploading a video, so please go

for the source of the writing
(I don´t wanna be a good girl scout,
I don´t wanna learn to count,
I don´t wanna grow up...)

I finally made it to have a look at your post-birthday entry. Well done, I like the idea of stitching some lines of a Tom Waits song. And I watched the video, it is really silly. Nevertheless, next time I'll show you how to link with Youtube.
