    Never Say Never

    I have never been thrown a surprise birthday party in my 47 years,but by no means have I ruled out having one. I think it might be fun to come home or go out and hearing family and friends saying "surprise" when I least expect it.

    Nothing But Disappointment

    Disappointment.  That is pretty much what I expect for my birthday this year.  If it weren't for my family, I wouldn't have anything to look forward to on any birthday.  I never really wanted a surprise birthday party, but this year will be a "milestone" birthday, and I think...

    And I Like It That Way.

    I can't stand my birthday. No, it's not because I'm middle-aged and don't want people to know the exact number - I'm not even 20 yet. I just hate the whole birthday atmosphere as it relates to me because: 1. People are fake. I despise getting generic birthday greetings from...

    Never Had One

    I've never had a birthday party in general. I've never had a birthday cake.The last time I got a birthday present was in 8th grade when I told this girl I didn't get birthday presents anymore and she gave me a scented candle the next day (even though it was several days after my...

    Never, But For Decent Reasons...

    My parents always ask me what I'd like to do for a party, so while they're never a surprise, it's not bad. Better than being thrown a surprise party doing something I don't like, and then having to be falsely nice and thankful all the time...

    I guess it's because I've never been really close to the people that I go to school with and my parents aren't really the party throwing kind of people. All I've ever really done for my birthday was get presents, cake, and hang out with my family. As soon as I'm out of the house...

    I guess no-one dares to surprise me, I don't like surprises. So it's no surprise that I have never had a surprise party!

    I had only one birthday party in my life... and it was an nightmare! So, I pretty much shy away from such things, when it's my birthday. =p I do wonder what it's like sometimes, to have a surprise one. But, then I'd probably have an heart attack, if I walked into a room and...
