Tomorrow is my birthday. I'm chewing an extra-strength TUMS and drinking tap water out of a plastic tiki mug.

- Birthday 2001Today is a milestone birthday for me.
Don't congratulate me.
This is my first birthday ever that I don't feel happy, or at the least content. I am filled with dread. Because life, huh? Life.
MORNING UPDATE: I'm feeling a lot more optimistic today. I just checked my "Your Birthday Today" horoscope and it says, in part:
"It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings."
This fits in perfectly with my secret plan of turning the old TV room into a den with a big desk so we can park our work laptops and piles of bills and valuable junk mail there. I can't do that until I clean out the wooden laundry racks that seem to have taken permanent residence there and let go of the wing back chairs from the parlor. Also the piano - can I get rid of that?
The horoscope also says that I'm ruled by Mars this year so look out. I would hate to have to get all war-like on your asses.
UPDATE 2: Bob Hope has fallen off the list of "Famous People Born on May 29" and has been replaced with Melissa Etheridge and Annette Bening. Ain't that a hell of a thing?
