My Jesus Year

Hey, remember that time I had a blog?

So, today's the 4th of July and also my birthday. I am 33. This seems totally implausible to me, seeing as I don't really really believe I ever turned 30, and am still kind of amazed I'm even of drinking age.

Ish bought me the Flight of the Conchords DVD and the complete third season of Columbo. You may not think this is romantic, but I am absolutely tickled by Columbo (bad hair, crazy lip gloss, hilarious dialogue, smoking in offices, rich drunk people, and a certain kind of objectification of women you just can't find on tv these days -- what's not to love?). He also got me Rock Band for the Wii.

Our only plans for the whole day are to enjoy these gifts, perhaps with some booze.

This was never how a younger version of me would have expected me to spend my 33rd birthday, but -- save for being a little closer to my family -- I really couldn't be happier.

Happy Fourth!

  4. Happy Birthday! This could be a Hallmark moment, but no, drink up! Party like a rock star! At some point, you just stop counting. I keep turning 23 -- again, and again, and again . . .

  8. Hope your birthday was fun, and just wanted to tell you about the tv series called Mad Men. It is set in the late '50s or early '60s and the objectivication of women is unreal. Actually it is so real I can't watch it. Lived and don't want to go there again. However, I did really like Colombo...and still do.

  9. Happy birthday! I have recently become a HUGE fan of Jermaine and Bret's! You got that AND Rock Band? Those are my kind of presents! I can just picture you and Ish pouring cocktails and rocking out. Awesome.

  14. Happy Birthday. Columbo, you are cracking me up, I thought I was the only one. I am 39 this year, still don't fully accept I am in my 30's.

  15. Happy belated birthday!

    Also, I am totally addicted to wii. Is there a support group? :D

  16. Happy (belated) Birthday! It sounds like it was the perfect day.

    (Also, from Conchords, you must have been the prettiest girl in the whole wide room. I love them. I'm pretty sure my boyfriend is jealous of my love for Jemaine...which is kind of ridiculous.)

  17. You are fantastic! You inspire me, and make me feel great about myself. I've just been reading your archives and I love your candor and depth.
    You also made me almost wet myself laughing when I read your caption about "In memory of 'Name'". I'm pretty sure everyone who has an office on the same hall as me was wondering what those snorting noises were.

  18. The older I get the more I realize that age is only a state of mind! Happy Birthday!

  19. Happy (belated) Birthday!!! You yung'uns being worried about your age crack us oldsters up. (I'll be 41 in September and it doesn't hurt as much as I thought it would to say that.)

    I'm so glad you are happy. You deserve it. :-)

  20. Happy belated Birthday too. Loving the Columbo- I never understood why they show who the murderer is at the beginning- and then I realised it's so that we can just sit back and ENJOY watching Columbo work it out. Brilliant stuff.

  21. Yes, to say I'm late to the party is an understatement Kristy, but I sure hope you had a Happy Birthday and rocked you're little socks off.

  22. Happy belated birthday! So you were exactly one year away from being a bicentennial baby! Yes, I was born in '76 so it's a topic rather fresh in my mind ;)

    Hope you had a great day!

  24. Well, hell. Better late than never, right? Even though I don't *know* you? Is that creepy? Happy Belated Birthday! :D

    Your blog makes me laugh on a regular basis. And cry sometimes, too. Thank you!

  25. hope your birthday was everything that you wanted it to be. i am glad that you were born!!

  26. Mmk. So I recently discovered your blog...and loved it. And then proceeded to read every last drop of the archives...and now I have run out! What else am I supposed to do at work?

    seriously-if I were a publisher, I'd publish you. But then if I were a publish I probably couldn't pay you becuase I budget by thinking about pink unicorns..but never mind. I'm officially a fan and whenever your life calms down, I'd love to read more!

    p.s. I know I commented on this entry twice...and I'm just now saying Happy Birthday. I'm a bad friend.
