Age Ain't Nothin' But A Number, Right?

Well, as of today I'm no longer a thirty-something. I've been angsting about this milestone, but today I've decided that it's all right. New decade of my life, bring it on...

Huge thanks to estellye, cookiefleck, agentxpndble, thrihyrne, and homespunheart for the snailmail goodies, and to zmaddoc, internet_sampo, homespunheart, and The Sage in Bloom for the virtual goodies, and to everyone who has posted good wishes for me today. I am blessed to have such wonderful and thoughtful friends! *huge hugs*

Happy birthday wishes to three friends who share my birthday, doctorwho42, barbedwriting, and savageseraph. Happy early birthday wishes to metal_aria, as well. May all of you enjoy many happy returns of the day!


It seems fitting today to share a couple of songs with you.

First, if I had an official theme song, this would be it: Marian Call's "I'll Still Be A Geek (After Nobody Thinks It's Chic)." Click to listen.


Second, a song near and dear to my heart, another one that would appear on the soundtrack to my life: Tori Amos's "Flying Dutchman."




In other news, a couple of cool things:

* Librivox.org has some new, unabridged recordings out, and some of them are especially of interest:
-- The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes, Vol. 1 by Various Authors
-- The Gray Phantom by Herman Landon
-- The Colors of Space by Marion Zimmer Bradley

* Ah Pook the Destroyer has a new album that's a musical interpretation of H.P. Lovecraft's work: The Silver Key.


I have some exciting professional news to announce soon, but for now, I'll just wish everyone a wonderful day. I'm grateful for you, my friends!


"I have been a nerd
Since long before anyone heard
That bookish girls should look and act a certain way.
And I'll still be a geek
When I am utterly antique
Because I do not care what normal people say."
- Marian Call, "I'll Still Be A Geek (After Nobody Thinks It's Chic)"
