I've been so busy with the Buddhist Festival that I never got around to sharing a birthday photo, and here I turned 40 almost two weeks ago now. I couldn't have asked for a better send-in of a new decade. I shared some time with friends younger and older, they gave me a few presents, I blew out the candles and missed one...but I had a chance to redeem myself a little while later with the second cake. Yes, I had two cakes. No, we didn't put 40 candles on each...not even 20. One was vegan so my vegan friends wouldn't be left out. That one was chocolate. (That reminds me, I still have a whole bunch left that I put in the freezer over in Steve's pad.)
Maybe this will be the year I can finally get cracking on my novel. It sorta got sidelined several times by this community activist stuff. Maybe (will I dare?) I will serialize it here. I work well with deadlines. Maybe an audience clamoring (will they clamor?) for the next installment will keep me at it this time. Eh...it's a hobby. As long as I think of it as a hobby, I'm happy.
For more Half Nekkid Thursday, go here.
Oh yes, the tiara was a hit. I have some much more adorable photos of some of the kids trying it on.
Happy HNT, all.
