Birthdays

It's my birthday today and I've spent the day wondering what to do, how to mark the day. But somehow the day got away from me--I spoke to my parents for an hour, Evan's sister, her husband and children ad then another friend for thirty minutes, received and replied to several emails and birthday texts, spent an hour IMing with my brother and then it was 4 p.m. By that time, I couldn't make it to the Natural History Museum or MoMA, so it looks like dinner with friends and maybe bowling will be the way I mark the day. I did get some work done, but overall, I fear I just relaxed, listened to four hours of Ricky Gervais (happy birthday to him), Stephen Merchant and Karl Pilkington and probably wasted the day! But the expectation for birthdays may be too high for any of us to sustain after the age of 10 or so. So maybe this was the best way to spend the day.
