Birthday #35

monkey business

On Saturday night Lori and I had a big ol' joint birthday party. It was our first party in our new apartment, and it turned out pretty well. There were probably 50 or 60 people, with lots spilling out into our courtyard and driveway.

Lori wrote up a little thing about the party, and took a bunch of pictures. Ally said some nice things about it, too.

I was a bit overwhelmed by it all, frankly. I remember things pretty clearly before the party started, watching the Star Wars Holiday Special with Ally, Mike, Lori and neck, but then... I only have an hour's worth of memories to cover the next six hours. And I only had one drink.

Maybe it's cheesy, but I can't help but view that party as a milestone. Three and a half years ago I moved to LA to start a new job. I knew two people in town. I was afraid of how things would turn out. Now I'm successfully running my own little business and I'm friends with a frightening number of top shelf people—generous, passionate, creative people.

I think it's important to realize how good my situation is, and enjoy it.

And then, of course, one can't help but wonder what's next.

what kind of business do you run?

Man, "apartment" and "drive way" just don't click for me. Sort of how "reasonable rent" and "Cambridge" don't either.

Maybe it's time for a change of scenery!

Congrats on the sucessful bash!

Dude, I told you, you are KING GEEK! Sorry we missed the party. We will come down and visit sometime during the next couple of months.
