Almost Done Celebrating

Thank you for the birthday wishes, everybody!

I celebrated by doing only the things I enjoy, such as

  • Sleeping in.
  • Going to a playground and for a walk in the woods with my family.
  • Visiting a bookstore to buy a couple of trashy chick-lit books.
  • Reading the Thatcher biography. I’ll be reading it until the next birthday because it’s three volumes, a thousand pages each.
  • Going to the gym. (This is the part of the festivities that made my mother exclaim, “who are you and what did you do to my child? I don’t recognize this weird person!”)
  • Going to an upscale restaurant. Klara behaved quite well but we did have to take turns taking her out on exploratory trips of the surrounding areas throughout the meal.
  • Reading my new trashy chick-lit book.
  • Steam-poding my hair.

It’s sad that celebrating isn’t a profession. I would have risen to the top in no time.

  1. Did you tell the waiter that it was your birthday, so you’d get a free piece of cake?

    I always do every year, and they only asked to see my driver’s license once to prove it.

    How long did it take you to finish Ducks, Newburyport again? :-p By the way, are you reading Shuggie Bain or any of the International Booker nominees in their original languages?

  3. When I google steam-podding I get results for steam pudding. I trained my google well. What on Earth is steam podding?
