Today I am 41. I feel no different than when I was 40. Birthday loot includes a lovely silver-and-marcasite necklace, money from Mom, a Best Buy gift card which purchased "The Simpsons Season 6" (surely one of the best seasons of all), "Ren & Stimpy" first and second season uncut, a Liam/Angelus doll (he does NOT look like Elvis! Much...), and some rain checks because nearly everyone I know is in a state of perpetual brokeness (which includes me). The day was spent playing Baldur's Gate and then doing a little yard work.

My clothes are starting to fit VERY tightly again. I did, I admit, gain a few pounds on vacation, but not that much; so I assume it's because my workouts have been somewhat less than what they once were. I can't afford to re-join the gym, but that is really what I may have to do if I can't get my butt in gear to do a full-on workout at home. Trouble is, I don't have the weight equipment, and doing pushups is just beyond me. Motivation? Yikes.

My CD burner is acting up badly. I think I need a new one. I tried to burn a disc today and it first failed the testing portion of the burn process, then refused to work at all, and I had to reboot everything. SIGH.

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you got some great gifts. Now if the CD burner would just cooperate...

Thanks! I did. :) Happy camper, here. I really do think it's the burner, though, 'cause the programs all seem to work (I stress =SEEM= to work... I need to do some more experiments).

Ack! I need to set my computer to pop up reminders or something because apparently it isn't enough to write people's birthdays down on the calendar.

Hope you had a fantastic one!

{grin} No problem. Birthdays aren't usually confined to just one day anymore, I've noticed.

Happy, happy, joy, joy! :)

I sent and e-mail before I read this, so I really did remember, but I forgot to call until it was too late. I do have gifties to send, if I can just get some more wrap and get to the post for a mega-birthday package!

I have to get to working out myself; I'm just so tired all the time, and my ankles are hating me when I have to sit all day!

I got the email!

Heck, we still have your Christmas presents here, so don't fuss about getting things into the mail. I was actually thinking of the possibility of giving up on the notion of King Tut (with heavy sighs and all) because of the difficulties in getting tickets, and aiming for later in the year when maybe Maggie can join us and trying for a sort of Christmas-ish visit.

Happy birthday! (Probably for yesterday, by the time you read this).

My clothes are fitting tightly again but that's because I have been out of control eating for nearly a month.


Or walk around the block or something.

not that I would, but maybe thou art more inspirable than me?

Thanks!! And for the motivation, too.

I HAVE been eating, but I don't think more than normal, it just feels like more because I haven't been getting good exercise. On days when I do work out, I don't feel as bloated.

Still, with rahirah out of town this week, I'm thinking I'll try living on yoghurt...

Yeah, kid, 40, 41 they're easy. The speed bump is still ahead of you.


Happy birthday!

That's what I was figuring. At 41, I'm not even halfway yet. :)
