Good times, v. 3.0

Yesterday was my birthday and it was awesome, and now I'm thirty. I'm excited for thirty, since when you say you are twenty-nine everyone assumes you are lying. I've never been one of those who dislikes birthdays--I'm selfish enough to really enjoy the concept of a day that's all about me, though with new people it's often hard to think of a way to tell them exactly what day it *is*. Ever since I was in high school, I've had a clever trick--I wear glitter on my birthday, to work or school or wherever I'm going. Then, when people rightly ask why, I tell them I am celebrating and they are then forced to wish me a happy birthday. Which is all I really want out of life.

I got all kinds of other stuff, too, including a pirate eyepatch (I covered it in glitter), a sparkler that singed some of my arm hair, and many many good wishes from lovely people. Also some good stuff that wasn't even birthday related--the Biblioasis Fall catalogue came in the mail on Thursday, and it is really classy-looking and interesting and CONTAINS MY BOOK, and I can't pretend I didn't flip to that page first. And that arrival inspired the Google-based ecstasy of the previous post--you can now pre-order my book via Chapters-Indigo! This is very exciting to me. Kerry pointed out that you can also find it on, and then I found it on which is awesome in a largely theoretical way, since I don't know many people in the states. But still...maybe I'll meet some!

Later on tonight, I'll be seeing a dance show (may be you want to, too

And it's freaking finally spring. Look how gorgeous is outside. It's all for me, clearly.

A change of heart / don't call me back
