Quick Birthday Loot Update
As you can see, I have my new glasses. They were part of my birthday present.
Laurie has ordered this for me:
You'll notice the description "exotic Middle Eastern/ Neo-Classical melodies & tribal rhythms" which is a good encapsulation of the kind of music I used to listen to.
It's a marvelously beautiful album which I owned many years ago and lost somehow just after it went out of print. I was extremely excited to hear recently that after a decade it's finally back in print for a limited time and I made a huge fuss and stink over how much I would love to own this album again. Laurie is making it happen.
My birthday was very nice. The whole family went out. Gina brought Stefan and we even managed to get Tony to come, which was nice. I had a giant veggie pizza. There may have been singing with the dessert, but if there was, I've blocked it out.
I am 33 years old and in spite of the less than ideal situations in my life at present, I'm fairly pleased with where I am in my life. In this inevitable week of reflection, it strikes me that I should write more, but other than that I'm pretty happy with where I am at 33.
