Birthday Followup: welcome to my world

When you're an adult, nothing much tends to happen on your birthday unless you plan it yourself. I planned a day off -- blocked off on my calendar, no commitments at all.

Except when I woke up that morning, I really wanted to call Verizon and work out the problem I've been having with missed text messages and voicemails, and then I had really been looking forward to getting to the post office during the day when the lines weren't so long, and also it felt pretty good to get another comedy show booked and catch up on some math problems that needed done (that's what mostly pays the bills around here), and then finally, I decided to go eat something fun and get a massage, so I had some Indian food and did more math problems while waiting for it, and then I went to get the massage and when I was all settled into the little massage room and the lady came in, she asked "How long?" and I said "Sixty minutes," and then immediately thought, "Damn, maybe I can get this done in 45," and then I realized that that is the utter opposite of the attitude one is supposed to have when getting a massage, so I tried to relax more while this nice Asian lady worked a bunch of knots out of my neck, during which time I mostly fantasized about investing in real estate.

Then I drank some wine and did some more math problems. So it was kind of a lot like a normal day, except I didn't make any money. Also, my darling mom sent me a box full of novelty candy (including candy lips, whee!)

I mean, in my view, if you choose to spend your day off much like a regular day, that means you have set up a pretty decent life for yourself in the first place. In contrast, people who are just dying to take vacations usually have pretty horrible jobs.

p.s. - I'm going to be in a TV pilot! We're filming in January.
