I've blogged a lot about my birthday this week, and I'm not even sure why. The last couple of years I've really tried to make it as much a non-event as possible. This one feels different, like it matters somehow. I don't know why, but I have a feeling I'm looking at a lot of change over the next year.
As a plus, I also share my birthday with Elvis, David Bowie, Soupy Sales, Stephen Hawking, fantasy author Terry Brooks and about 8 people from my high school graduating class. Oddly, I feel strange connections to all these people. So I'm happy to have them as birthday buddies.
Here's what the good ol' Wahington Post has to say to me today:
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (January 8). Commitments are made and kept, offering you a feeling of peace and security through the year. Flirting turns serious this month. Couples sneak away and renew interest in one another before the winter is over. Working at home brings extra money and a chance to invest in something exciting and lucrative in the spring. Love signs are Libra and Aries. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 11, 24 and 39.
Well ok then.
After work today I'm heading down south to find a Waffle House or Crackerbarrel for dinner with a couple people, and then it's all over. Hope everyone has a good weekend.
