This afternoon kicks off my 29th Birthday Weekend Extravaganza! My actual birthday is on Sunday, but I’m one of those really annoying people who celebrates their birthday for a week. (…Or a month.) This afternoon John and I are going to see Sleepwalk With Me at the IFC Center, and I have to say, I’m kind of ridiculously excited about being in the same room as Ira Glass and Mike Birbiglia – two of my favorite humans ever.
Tomorrow we are spending the day at Coney Island with our friends – including my BFF who is coming up from DC for the occasion! I decided to basically have a child’s birthday party this year instead of an adult one. It seemed fitting for my last 20s birthday. And on Sunday, John is taking me to Del Posto for my actual birthday dinner to kick off the slow march toward 30. (How is it humanly possible that I will be 30 next year?! I thought I just turned 20 like five minutes ago.) And hopefully there will be birthday gelato somewhere in there (I don’t eat cake).
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend as well! And feel free to have a glass of champagne in my honor. ;-)
