Hey! I'm old, WHEE!!

I have some pretty amazing friends, I must say. My old boss from my improv comedy clubs day made a video of him lip-synching "Happy Birthday" to some crazy-ass song, I've had lovely messages sent, the ever delightful flaming_muse wrote me a STORY and it is SO SO SWEET and I LOVE IT, and I will share it with you: Forever.

(And now I'm a sobbing mess because the door just rang and she sent me TULIPS because she remembered that they are my favorite, and HOW DID I EARN SUCH GREAT FRIENDS?) I love you guys. <3

And I am not going to lift one damn finger today to do anything! Well, I'll brush my hair and stuff, but no dishes or laundry or anything else. GO ME! I'm going to play Skyrim and eat fruit, no: cheese, and I'm going to drink some wine tonight and I made an apple pie for Emily's birthday yesterday, and I'm going to have some of that, too and I'm going to have it with ice cream. (make sure you say that all like Judge Smalls' grandson. And if you get that, then you are my special love for the day.)


I had plans to write up a navel-gazing post about what all I've accomplished in 40 years, but my air conditioning died and I've had workmen all morning long. FUN! (One of them is from Jordan and we talked about his beautiful children and coming from large families, and he was DELIGHTFUL. And then he showed me the estimate for replacing the system and he stopped being my friend. Lol.)

I still want to do that, because I've been down in the dumps for several days now, and it's good for me to remember that while I've had a tough row to hoe (despite how I present myself) there are a lot of great things that have happened over the (many many) years that I've kicked around on this pebble.

But for now: I GO EAT THAI NOODLES. Like a boss.

Aww, thanks so very much! I will take well-wishings from whichever corner of the globe they come from. Hugs back to you, and I'm so happy to share my fic-present with everyone! Isn't she awesome? :)

<3 Happy birthday!

(Although a busted A/C is not a good present, boo your HVAC system.)

Thank you so much!!

The complete replacement of our A/C system was DEFINITELY not on my wish list, but hey - now I won't have to fret about the rest of the hot month and potential doom?

Happy Birthday!!!

I'm sorry I didn't comment upon the actual day - I have been a in a Red Cross Humanitarian Aid Training vortex the last few days...So , at least, if I couldn't respond, it as for a good cause...?

I hope you had a wonderful day! :)

Oh, for Pete's sake, like I would care! you are wishing me a happy year to come, and I sure don't mind WHEN you tell me! :D

And especially not for such a reason, how wonderful of you! Thank you so, so much (and go, you! on your training!)

Happyyear then woohoo.

I am, I should probably mention, tipsy. I can still type, so that's a good sign.

I would love to get into aid work but it's VERY difficult to get into. You know how everyone says film industry is mist difficult to break into? I'd say no. (I am the daughter of film producers/documentary makers and all our family friends are film people/childhood friends are children of film people, so I may have skewed idea to be fair). It's not until I went to uni that I realised how... small that circle is. But, OMG the stories I could tell!!! (I can tell you - but in PM.. I don't know how to do - i'm LJ stupid bahaha). Sadly, I am not on the rich famous side - i'm more on the struggling artist side - with no romantism just hard times. I'm actually quite worried about my dad - there's no money where we are.

So, yes, aid work... I speak French, but have no real idea how to 'break into' the job. It is a privilege to go. I grew up in a family with no 'safe' 9-5 job financially, and instead of choosing a 'safe' option - teacher etc, I'm choosing aid work. BAHAHAHA. I must be mad.

...And i just realised I wrote you a novel.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
