I'll celebrate tonight by going out to dinner with some of my closest friends - Judy, Paula, Chris and xmxsuicidex to my favorite Thai restaurant Old Siam :) Hard to beat good food & good company for a nice low key evening.
Nothing could come close to topping last year's birthday so I won't even try =)
I usually get really depressed on my birthday thinking I'm another year older with not much accomplished, this year it really helps to have the new job approaching May 1st and feeling a little better about myself in that they obviously deemed me worthy of hiring. And at least I look a lot younger than I am :)
My horoscope in today's paper sounds appropriate, at least the career part:
Today's Birthday April 19: It's your year of self-acceptance. This creates the congruence you need to move forward with full power toward your fondest wish. Next month brings a turnaround in your career environment (how true!!) You come out of changes on top., Family life improves in July when a disturbing element is tamed. There's a brilliant spark between you and a Leo or Sagittarius.
