Today we bought our house. I’m also a year older. That’s right, your beloved Contrarian has now traveled around the sun 34 semi-glorious times. Strange, I still feel 25 in my head. (Chhaya talks about this phenomenon a bit on her blog.)
I find it somewhat remarkable that my birthday falls in between Morrissey (yesterday) and Bob Dylan‘s (tomorrow). Us First Decan Geminis sure are a talented and literate bunch. So what if we’re a little cranky from time to time?
Tonight we’re going out to dinner (again. . . seriously, we gotta cut this out — we have a mortgage now!) then to see the new Indiana Jones flick. I have pretty low expectations, so I’ll probably enjoy it just fine. (I’m also one of the few people in polite society who can tolerate Shia LaBeouf.)
Tomorrow, we paint. The next day, we paint some more. Man, homeownership is hard work!
