its my birthday (almost) so leave a comment
birthdays are like new years - every year i wake up full of resolution thinking this year will be different. i tell myself: this is going to be the year i get a new, fabulous job. this is going to be the year i get in shape (a shape other than round, that is). this is the year i stop working 7 days a week. this is the year i stop waking up drunk in the bathroom of a bar i dont remember going to. that sort of thing.
i sort of love my birthday more than its okay to at my age. its so nice to see all my friends together in one place at the same time, buying me drinks and doing exactly what i want, no matter if they want to or not. its so sad that it only comes around once a year. my sister and i tried to implement the celebration of our half-birthdays, but, sadly, no one bought into it.
yesterday i took the day off to do absolutely nothing, which im never very good at. it always sounds like more fun than it is. i ended up getting my eyebrows threaded, and spent the birthday gift certificate from my dad from last year (i got the islands cd and a book on easter island - thanks pops!).
my friends and i were meeting for happy hour at 6:30, but naturally i had to pre-game, so i met some friends for dinner, then we moseyed over to drinks. the gals and the gays were out in force with a few straight men thrown in to keep it interesting. after happy hour we went to see a show at the black cat which was a hot mess. a band i lurve, !!!, was playing; ive seen them before, have their album, and am mildly obsessed... however... the show was atrocious in an i-can-only-sit-back-and-laugh-to-keep-from-crying kind of way. and not only were they bad, but, they were 90 minutes late. to their own show. at least they were merciful and only played 6 songs. but, in the end, a good time was had by all, and im looking forward to additional celebrations tonight!
