How dare I forget

the people who share some weird psychic energy with me. Whenever I think about them alot, they turn up. Seriously, you just know when you're on my mind. How the fuck do you do that??!

Anyway, thanks Jen (and Jay too) for contributing to this friend-filled birthday experience!

Thanks mom for poppin' me out.

Thanks to my homies for getting my birthday celebrations started 6 days early, to Emeril for pouring glasses of Prosecco and starting my birthday with a BANG (HA! couldn't do it), to candles in chocolate cheesecake, to Lewis and the band for the huge bouquet, to Robert for carrying all my flowers, and to free PBR at the Hogpit.

To Quinn and John for still being good friends and letting me tend to your wounds.

To Karen and Jon and Cheeky and Laurea and DY (by phone counts) for ringing in the first few minutes of my new year!

To Nick for being a meticulous tile layer and growing me a sunflower. To Pop Tarts and Gatorade, and the water taxi!

To Karen for always showing up no matter what!, to Marco the MINI convertible, to driving with the top down, to the sun and the monarch butterflies (38 of them!) flying down Washington Street, to Karma Kafe's lunch buffet, to Danny for holding down Hoboken with that same stoned smile, and to the Egyptian singing car attendant for the lil' diddy.

To Genevieve for patiently waiting, Charlotte for showing me dead mice, Sophia for dancing, Terhune Orchards for having the best apple cider donuts and apples- Macouns, Jonathans, Macintosh, and Jonagolds. There's gonna be some baking this weekend!

To my momma, Billy and Zari and Amanda and my Uncle Brian for sending me birthday wishes.

THANKS ALL!!! My birthday's always a big deal to me and this one was no disappointment.

The vibe is energized by the presence of my spirit.

This birthday started almost a week early but I guess that's cause there's so much fun to be had- couldn't possibly cram it into only one day.

Holy shit these days have be FUN!!!


For the first time in my life I truly and thoroughly derived pleasure from driving a car. Jay would be proud.

Like that scene from Ferris Bueller's day off, we just cruised around the city with the top down and wind in our hair and tried to find fun places to catch some speed. Coney Island, the Verrazano and back, and all around Brooklyn and Manhattan. It was really swell and we'll definitely do it again. ZipZIPcar we love you!

Say you just can't live in a negative way!

Speaking when I've got something on my mind. Knowing when to hold my tongue. Feeling all I've been working on come together. Keeping my eye on the bigger picture, the picture keeps getting bigger! Realizing who's always by my side no matter what goes down and loving them unconditionally. Finding people who inspire me. Listening to the wisdom falling from wise lips. Laughing at the lessons I'm learning that I wish I would have learned the first time. Longing to see what's coming next and after that and after that.
