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 shiny_elfriend, 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)"
