Miss Bunny

another belated birthday surprise for me last night

owh~~~she's so cute, not???^^

billions thanks to all my friends who planned the surprise
thanks for the melted, gross-looking but still yummy Secret Recipe's yogurt cheesecake
thanks for the birthday card with heart-tugging messages:')
thanks for this adorable bunny

im strongly against the tradition of torturing the birthday girl/boy on their big day!!!
i've gulped in concentrated sugar solution and lime juice last night!!!
oh no~my weightT.T

my piggy roomie asked whether i was expecting this birthday surprise as they didn't give me any present on the night of my real birthday but only a simple celebration with a mini card+fake cockroach...

honestly telling...NO

maybe because of im stupid
or maybe because of im an easily contented person
im happy to know that my friends cared and celebrated birthday with me
no matter it's a big/small celebration
with/without birthday present
there aren't really important to me

i've read an interesting article here

Short Sleeper

Short sleepers, about 1% to 3% of the population, function well on less than 6 hours of sleep without being tired during the day. They tend to be unusually energetic and outgoing. Geneticists who spotted a gene variation in short sleepers were able to replicate it in mice -- which needed less sleep than usual, too.

Christopher Jones, a University of Utah neurologist and sleep scientist who oversees the recruiting, says there is one question that is more revealing than anything else: When people do have a chance to sleep longer, on weekends or vacation, do they still sleep only five or six hours a night? People who sleep more when they can are not true short sleepers, he says.

To date, Dr. Jones says he has identified only about 20 true short sleepers, and he says they share some fascinating characteristics. Not only are their circadian rhythms different from most people, so are their moods (very upbeat) and their metabolism (they're thinner than average, even though sleep deprivation usually raises the risk of obesity). They also seem to have a high tolerance for physical pain and psychological setbacks.
"They encounter obstacles, they just pick themselves up and try again," Dr. Jones says.

i think i might be one of them...
because even if my alarm clock is off
i can't sleep more than 6 hours per day 
and almost every morning i'll wake up before the alarm clock rings=.=
my friends are shocked when they get to know about my sleeping pattern
i get less sleep, yet i seemed more energetic than them
owh no~my gene is mutated

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery.
 And Today? Today is a gift.
That's why we call it the present.
