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.

Happy belated birthday! I'm sorry I missed sending wishes on the day, and I hope your celebration plans go as expected.

I'm arriving in the city tonight and leaving Sunday morning, but if you don't make it to the conference and want to do something after the conference, I'd definitely be up for that! :) I plan to have dinner after the conference with whatever fellow Tolkien fans I can rally up to eat food with me. (Which may be no one! I have lots of partial plans and nothing set in stone yet, thanks to trying to do all this on top of the chaos of moving.) If you'd like to meet later for a drink or coffee, I'd be up for that too.

I can email my cell number if you'd like; just let me know!

Please do! I'm hoping to make it to the conference but would love to meet you for dinner or coffee in any event - conferences don't make for great friends-time.

The aquarium didn't work out, but I stumbled on a beach WHICH IS BETTER and am currently in line for a rollercoaster, so... I can honestly say I'm good.
