Actually, my friends helped me celebrate last week (thanks, sorry I's be late, I's be slow inda hade sum-tymes) at The Lamp Post Tavern. Pretty good jukebox (Springsteen! The Smiths!). Tasty Guinness. Nice open windows to watch the world go by and the snow come down. (quote of the night: M.B., looking at the slushy-snow fall down, "Amazing how something that looks so beautiful in February can look so ugly in March." That stuck me somewhat melancholic and poetic, really.) An all-around good neighborhood bar to take a friend or six.
Thank you CC, MC, MW, MB, DH, BH, RS, and K for that night. And for the Lilly Treats, Guinness and CDs (Endhits by Fugazi and Closer by Joy Division).
And today for lunch, I treated myself to a yummy Rare Roast Beef Wrap from Love's Something-Something at the food court, rather than the same old McDonald's I have (day in, day out). MMmmm, roast beef, gooooood.
Happy Birthday to me.
