The Mondayest Monday

Is that a bit too Dr. Seuss? But that is the best adjective I can think of to describe the day I had. Going back to the daily grind is always such a drag after a vacation, especially a great vacation. Nine lovely days spent in the Bay Area where the climate was gentle and perfect. I did so much yet feel like I didn't accomplish everything I wanted to, see everyone I wanted to.

Oh, I'm 30 now. Wow. Feels weird to say. I had the biggest birthday party I've ever had. I need to say thank you again to everyone who came, or e-mailed or called on Saturday, which was my actual birthday. The fact that people remembered is a big enough deal for me. It was sweet of so many people to ignore my "no need for gifts" declaration. One of my favorite gifts was... a new UCLA license plate frame! Someone read my previous blog entry and took it upon himself to get me a new one. I won't make him turn red again but kind sir, you know who you are. I thank you very, very much. It makes the frame even more meaningful in some ways than the one I previously owned. Now, let's see what happens if I blog about wanting to inherit a $100,000. Kidding.

Well, I didn't think it was possible but I will be going on a cupcake hiatus for the week at least. I have never eaten so many cupcakes as I did in the last few days. And I still haven't gone grocery shopping. I need to detox this week--go buy some salads, leafy veggies and lay off sugar unless it's Weight Watchers bars. Detox time!
