It really sets my heart a beating
Reading all the birthday greetings
From friends and family far and near
Whose voices I adore to hear
Thank you all for your kind words
Who says birthdays are for the birds?

Are you a neophile or a neophobe? Or a bit of both?

Neophiles have the following basic characteristics:
  • The ability to adapt rapidly to extreme change
  • A distaste or downright loathing of tradition, repetition, and routine
  • A tendency to become bored quickly with old things
  • A desire, bordering on obsession in some cases, to experience novelty
  • A corresponding and related desire to create novelty by creating or achieving something and/or by stirring social or other forms of unrest.
