birthday recap

my birthday celebration was a great success. it provided a long-delayed incentive to clean/organize the apartment and get some of my stuff packed in preparation for moving. karaoke was super-fun. here's my set list:

1. into the groove - madonna
2. wind beneath my wings - bette midler (once again, my biggest hit)
3. the sign - ace of base
4. downtown - petula clark

this adorably nerdy boy at the karaoke bar bought me a drink because it was my birthday, and at the end of the night he asked me if i wanted to hang out sometime. i felt really bad turning him down ("first, i already have a gentleman friend; second, i'm moving to new york"). i know that it takes a lot of guts to go up to someone you don't know and take that kind of risk, and any rejection will pretty much leave you feeling like an idiot, no matter how nice the person tries to be. oh well. i gave him and his friends the last of my cupcakes right before we left, so i think that helped.

and then i woke up today with a full-on cold, including sore throat. maybe from the long plane ride? anyway the timing is perfect so i don't care - i'm just going to watch TV and eat soup all day and recuperate.
