About so I turned 37 and...

Previous Entry so I turned 37 and... Sep. 27th, 2007 @ 10:51 pm Next Entry
...I feel like I did for the last 4 or 5 years, pretty much without difference.

my birthday was acknowledged by phone by my biological father (but not the person I consider my father), by email (actually "myspace message," ugh) by a friend in England, in person by a clerk at the video store (she didn't see my ID, but apparently it's tied to my account. I got a free rental), in a few forum postings by a few people I don't really known on the DROD forums, and in IM by a friend-I've-never-met-in-person in Minnesota (I know her from an MMORPG I used to play).

good coverage of media. not a good head count, but I didn't hold a party like I might have in Austin. but then again:

I guess I don't really celebrate my birthday anymore. I dunno. for many years, it was the last holiday I still acknowledged after my mom died. but this year I just worked, rented some movies, and watched a couple tv premieres I didn't want to miss. I was invited to dinner by my "father", but didn't want to go out tonight... nothing against him, but I wasn't going to miss Smallville unless Tina Fey asked me out.

my friend in England, though, did give me some good ideas about what kind of life I'm missing by being lazy... so naturally, I'll talk about changing, then get tired and read some more and watch some more tv and work too much and days will pass by uncounted, and suddenly I'll be 38 and still feeling guilty inside somewhere. or something like that.

uncounted and unchanged...so far.

And I think it is the message, not the medium, that means something.

With love from your friend-in-England (who surely counts for at least 12 heads),

Well... For what its worth... Its not like I forgot your birthday. Thats just not going to happen. But I've been hearing "I don't really celebrate my birthday anymore" for a few years now so I decided to actually take you up on that for once. Bad call on my part. Live and learn. Plus I kept buying you the wrong games. :)

I know what you mean about change. Its not easy to talk yourself into changing. But I have found that when you actually make the right changes for you, its really not a lot of work. New habits replace the old ones. I can't really just stop doing something, I have to replace it with something else. Then those TV shows just seen so much less important.

Happy belated birthday. Youngster.

not a bad call on your part. I not only said it to you, I also said it again in the very post you're replying to :)
