"the Jesus year"
I turn 33 today. My friend Sharon Mesmer calls it that: "you do your best work, but you get crucified for it."
Stayed up very late last night assembling a mix CD to give to the friends I see today, since I believe firmly in the importance of giving people presents on one's birthday. A lot of that time was spent in a teeth-gnashing sequencing difficulty, which lasted until I realized that my problems stemmed from my neuro-compulsive need to make mix CDs last more than 73 minutes and 50 seconds and less than 74 minutes. Deleted one brief, irritating track, and then a longer, good but not-really-appropriate-here one, ended up just over 72 minutes, hit "burn," and so to bed.
Speaking of which, one of the many other people who's adopted Movable Type for a weblog in the last few days is Samuel (listed to the left in "people")--worth a look.
