I'm having a bit of a belated birthday celebration. According to the interwebz the aquarium is freefree after 3 pm and I've never been to Coney Island. Planned day off work (first vacation day this year!), and I almost didn't do anything because I'm zonked and because just the freedom not to think about work seemed like vacation enough.

But, you know, sun. And who needs friends when you have anemones?

I'm toying with going to the NY Tolkien Conference tomorrow. I really want to hear Dawn and Janet talk, and the other talks look good too. But it's also a tough anniversary and that's already pulling me down (part of why getting out today was so hard). So we'll see. dawn_felagund, I know this is very last minute, but if there's any interest (or more aptly time) in getting together this weekend, let me know.

Work has been crazy-making, but for the moment I'm very tired of dwelling on that, so I shan't. It's my birthday week, after all. And speaking of: THANK YOU for all the well wishes. I'm a bit too blown under to reply to them all individually, but they did make me feel surrounded in a good way. I appreciated it.

Would the people involved in the tough anniversary want you to stay at home, brooding? Or would they want you to be out with people, discussing a subject (a multitude of subjects) of interest, which have given you so much pleasure over the years? Will your staying home tomorrow change anything about what's happened in the past?

Easy answer, but I'm not sure it's the right question. I'm not contemplating sitting at home and being miserable. It's more that I am really and truly drained, and when I get in that mood, I tend to try to play at being happy, and it ends up being even more draining than being alone.

The question is, would being out and about be energizing or draining? I am leaning toward the former, just because the people wouldn't really be folks I have to pretend for.
