live, love, loafe

My best friend Marianne, who I’ve known since we were both 14 and freshmen in high school (holy shit that is 16 years now, holy shit), has a diaryland page that she updates on a pretty regular basis. And while I try to keep up with it, the past two weeks or so were pretty crazy for me, so I wasn’t able to read it. But I just caught up right now and I have to say that it really is good reading. I say this not just because Marianne is my girl, but because Marianne is a great writer and has great insights and is very honest and real and an admirable and beautiful woman. She is also extremely intelligent. I am lucky to have her in my life. She’s off on a family vacation right now and I hope she’s having a great time but I will be glad when she gets back.

In other news, the first monsoon storm of the season is about to hit and I am very happy. Monsoon storms in Tucson are grand, glorious things to witness and to smell. For all the bad, there is some good.

And for those of you concerned, we managed to hook up to our neighbor’s illegal cable, so now we have TV to watch. For some reason, it only works in the bedroom outlet. I don’t particularly like the idea of a television in the bedroom, but I don’t like the idea of no television at all. Life is about compromisies, people. No TV or TV in the bedroom? Easy decision there.

Tomorrow is my ultrasound. yay!

Also, in 10 short days I turn 30. Horrible awful ugly 30.

I can tell you from 2 days experience that 30 feels exactly like 29, but with different numbers.

It's not so bad. Thanks again for coming to dinner! I had a blast! Mmmmm, PF Changs.

I can tell you from almost 9 years of experience, the 30's are tons better than the 20's. Really. No, I'm serious. They ARE!

I thought turning 30 kinda sucked. I don't dwell on it, but the actual birthday itself was not my fave.

Hey, I know something that will make you feel better.... I'M turning 32 in 3 short weeks, HA! so atleast you'll always be younger than me :-) really though, the 30's are sooooooooooooooooo much better then your 20's, atleast in my case and I believe is the case for most women. So stand tall and stand proud and greet 30 with a big ol' hug n' kiss! Yee Haw!!!

They are all lying. 30 sucks.

I do not know how you feel.

I will turn 30 years old in the future. Also I will go back to Japan and find a wife in the future.
