I turn 33 today. My friend Sharon Mesmer calls it that: “you do your best work, but you get crucified for it.”
Stayed up very late last night assembling a mix CD to give to the friends I see today, since I believe firmly in the importance of giving people presents on one’s birthday. A lot of that time was spent in a teeth-gnashing sequencing difficulty, which lasted until I realized that my problems stemmed from my neuro-compulsive need to make mix CDs last more than 73 minutes and 50 seconds and less than 74 minutes. Deleted one brief, irritating track, and then a longer, good but not-really-appropriate-here one, ended up just over 72 minutes, hit “burn,” and so to bed.
Speaking of which, one of the many other people who’s adopted Movable Type for a weblog in the last few days is Samuel (listed to the left in “people”)–worth a look.
I’ve said it already, but happy birthday! And I’ll be watching your back around Eastertime. xo l.
(Must I be the one to point out that you are also now a full legal adult in hobbit terms?)
Haaa ha ha! “Vulgarweed” beat me to it!
the bank’s been slow to process my freelance checks of late but sometime early next week I’ll be sending you along those R&B CDs. happy birthday!
