I'm thirty-seven years old today!
I'm indivisible, with liberty and justice!
And I skipped my run this morning
so I could sleep in a little
and write myself a birthday post.
Even though the three middle fingers
on my right hand
are aching from overuse
because I wrote a whole five-hundred page book in four months!
I write that in my notebook a lot:
Also: I'm doing a great job!
I'm proud of me!
And I love me!
Sometimes I even draw myself a heart.
What can I say, I'm sappy.
I mean, happy.
For the most part.
With my life, at least.
Which is really ridiculously good.
If I thought I had it good last year
I don't even have an adjective for how I feel this year.
Oh, wait, yes I do:
I kind of want to take the day off today
and do my Instant Bellydancer DVD
and read the Project Runway recap on TWoP
and maybe go shopping for sneakers
and lay around and see which cats climb up on me
and how long I can pet them
before they turn into little worn-away nubs of cat meat
with no hair on them.
I want to go to the karaoke place
downstairs from Kat's
with a hundred dollars
and sing all afternoon.
And get a massage.
And eat candy.
Thirty-seven, and I still love candy.
Like, more than just about anything.
BUT because I am so close to finishing my first draft
and nothing in the world will make me feel happier than that
I'm going to work now.
And having lunch with Amanda.
And then Bill's taking me out to dinner.
Because he's mah HUSBIN.
I got a husbin this year
and a book
and almost another book
except for the last thirty pages
so I'm gonna go write them right now.
