Birthday pleasures


Now that my age is the same as "the answer to life, the universe and everything", I should be at the peak of my know-it-all years, right? Why do I feel like I don't know anything at all?

I had a very good birthday today.

It actually began yesterday, when Seth & Tara treated me to Cirque du Soleil. It was an amazing show. I love acrobats and jugglers and I was in heaven. Between staring agape at the daring of the performers, and weeping for the beauty of their skill, I laughed like a little girl at the clowns. Really, it was great. Thanks, Seth & Tara!

Today, I began the day with a donut breakfast and gifts from my mother and Tod's mother. Then I had a good long walk across town, seeing some white dandelions en route, to Nishi Azabu where I picked up expense reimbursements and enjoyed lunch under the cherry trees and a sunny sky with Rob, who gave me tofu yogurt with a candle in it! After that, I spent my expense money on reflexology and hand massage. Then I came home, read a book and ate the last few pieces of my Valentine's chocolate. Well-wishes from friends poured in all day, including a blog entry from MJ, chats and and many e-mails.

The one down spot in the day was that the washing machine lies. It said my clothes would be ready in 90 minutes, but when I checked it after 80 minutes, it told me 56 more minutes. That ruined my dinner outfit plan. But Morsbags to the rescue! In the piles of donated fabrics was an old Marks & Spenser suit. I'm not sure who it once belonged to, but it was just my size. I don't think it would have made a great bag, so I appropriated it. When I am tired of it, I will put it back into the bagging mix.

I met Tod at his office and he took me out to dinner. He wouldn't tell me where we were going, but I guessed. It was a gorgeous yu-dofu place in Hakusan called Goemon. We've talked about going there for years and finally we have. It was very good and private room and garden setting was stunning.

Thank you to everyone who remembered my birthday and made it special for me.
