I don’t FEEL thirty-… something
Another year older, etc, etc. It should be just another day, but it never feels that way, does it? Admittedly, the only places where your birthdate really matters is government type services, job applications or loyalty programs. Otherwise, it’s just a day where my license is liable to expire, but not for another 4 or 5 years now!
I was up far too early today, work has ruined my ability to sleep in past say 7:30 or 8 in the morning. Doesn’t matter when I go to bed, drunk or sober, full or hungry, I’m awake not long after sunrise. It’s been a fairly uneventful day so far, I’m still grumbly about my computer dying, I went for my Starbucks, I got some text messages, tweets, instant messages, facebook wall posts and calls to say “Happy Birthday!”
TV has been really letting me down lately, so I was really missing my PC for both my music and my videos. Thankfully my DVD player is DivX compatible, so anything that’s on my flash drives, I can play through it–no need to miss Corner Gas! Still, I have to make a decision on what to do about the PC thing. I could easily put my drives into an enclosure and retrieve/reorganize the data for connection to a new machine, and I still have a Mac and PC laptop here, so I can connect externals to them and be ok, but I really enjoyed having a Home Theater ready machine, so I might have to get another one in here. It was so much fun having a PC connected to the HDTV that I’m sure I’ll miss it. For now though, I have to deal with getting the data, the rest will sort itself out later. Sadly, my iPhone is also off the update cycle for now until I properly move my music around. I could update it with my Mac, but that might delete all the data from it and leave me music-less, which is not an option right now!
I’ve got a lunchtime barbecue this afternoon and hopefully I’ll find places to head out tonight for food and mostly drinks! It’s my birthday, it would be criminal to go to bed sober*.
* I think it would perhaps only be a minor infraction to go to bed alone, but I’m sure I’ll be let off with a warning for that one.
** Looks like I may fail that one on both counts… 😕
