Was it really that long ago?

Today, of course, is the 35th anniversary of Super Bowl III. Many happy returns to all you Jets fans out there!

And many thanks to everyone who sent good wishes -- it really means a lot to me. When I was in prep school and college, my friends always forgot my birthday, as it was right as we were getting back from Christmas vacation, and by the time everyone got settled in and started paying attention to each other again, my birthday had come and gone, and it really hurt.

I'm still feeling pretty un-fabulous, though. Ever since serenejournal had a truly amazing party slash WomBoink for her 35th, I had thought that for once, I'd try to have a big celebration this year for my 35th. That sort of fell by the wayside when I failed to find work in time, but I had at least thought that we could get the house cleaned up in time to have friends in for a party... and that fell by the wayside, too. Lately, I've felt like I've been neck-deep in molasses: however hard I try to get my "to do" list cleared off (job hunting, thesis, housekeeping, and the rest of my life), I never seem to get anywhere. And not having a Really Big Deal Celebration like I'd planned is throwing that into sharp relief.

We're going out to dinner (for Chinese, which I'm really not in the mood for, but it's the thought that counts) with my friends, and that will be nice. I just wish I could shake the nasty case of the blues that I've caught today. I've whined to my sweeties about it overmuch; I hope I can at least desist from whining for the rest of the night.

I was pretty wound down for my birthday, too. Maybe it's something in the air or something these days.

Happy birthday! With all due respect to the most fabulous serenejournal, I think 36 is a more notable number than 35, in terms of being a perfect square, so now you have a year to prepare for a big bash *then*. :-)

Sorry about feeling all mired down, though -- things are much the same here in a lot of ways, including having had yet another birthday just go by.

Happy birthday, sweetie! I think the birthday glums are actually pretty normal, even if you do have a big party. I will eat chocolate and send celebratory vibes in your general direction.

Want to get me something extra-special for my double-trey in 2 November? How about a new president? That would be nifty...as long as his name isn't Lieberman.

Sorry I spaced and put up your birthday wish late. It's been hectic here as I've been playing phone tag with this good job lead, down to my absolute last dollars, trying to figure out how to start up a relationship in the process of all this.

Oh, Ohayocon is coming up next week. I won't be able to register, but I plan on hanging around with any friends who are around.
