22nd of January

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Alone; banana pancakes and a steaming mug of chocolate mint; watching The Social Network and The Tourist while taking delight in the lovely birthday greetings sent by friends on Facebook; an afternoon nap; several chapters of Anne Enright’s novel The Gathering with Offenbach in the background – that's how I celebrated my birthday.

My birthday may have been uneventful, but the weeks leading to it were not: I was given a chance to spend marvelous time with my dear childhood friends. And, freed from the confines of propriety and self-imposed solitude, I relished every minute of the most uninhibited fun I’d had in years - which left me breathless and intoxicated.

Hi Angeli, so good to read that you had such a great time. Apologies for not commenting recently. I've been busy - my lame excuse. Those are great photos you posted on your facebook and the fun element is all there for anyone to see. I don't know that I'll ever get to that side of the globe or even if I even had a notion of ever trying to, I like it here seems to be where I'm at.

Loree and Kayni, so we share the same astrological sign, huh? or not? i don't even know what sign i belong to now. those shifting stars have messed it all up. hahahah

happy birthday in advance, Kayni. :)

unstranger, i will look you up when i go to your part of the world. i've always wanted to take a James Joyce walking tour following the footsteps of Leopold Bloom as he goes around Dublin. maybe someday, huh? :)
