A day into 35.


Well, for the most part my birthday and came and went. I took the day off, opting to spend the day relaxing (and avoiding getting yelled at by my boss, especially on my birthday.) For the most part it was nice. Not too much pomp and circumstance. A few phone calls, a lot of LJ comments, a shitload of Facebook salutations (Facebook definitely makes it easy to say happy birthday.) A mysterious cupcake delivery to our doorman by a very silly boy.

The best part of my day, hands down, was when Kathryn came home from work. We didn't do anything really special, as we have plans with friends on Saturday night. Instead, we ordered in a yummy Indian dinner, and we sat together, and lived.

I think that was the best birthday present of all. And the best part is I've had it every night for more than two years since she moved in with me. I get to spend my days with Kathryn, my partner for life. I get that present every single day. And I will so for the rest of my life, as the wedding oath goes.

So happy birthday to me. It is somewhat fitting that my birthday coincided with Rosh Hashanah. On a day in which we celebrate another year, and ask God for a year that is good and sweet... I truly got to enjoy another day of a good and sweet life.

Not too shabby.

Aw...

Get much more shmaltzy and I'll think you're quoting Barry Manilow songs.

Oh, so you're looking to be his replacement, then?

;)

(No, I haven't seen him. That's really a shame...)

Happy Birthday, Phil!

I'm glad to read that these past few years have brought you the sort of life that you've always wanted.

That's all I would ever wish for you, on your birthday, and always: I wish you the life that you've always wanted.

*hugs*
