Birthday Week Take 2

Since I was sick most of last week I’m considering this my birthday week take 2. I’m going to see two movies (Sex and the City 2 and Splice) read a book I don’t have to read, and I’m also going to buy myself a new summer outfit thanks to my late mother. Around 15 years ago I gave her a gift certificate for two tickets to a Broadway show which she apparently never used (typical!).

I recently got mail asking me if I was ever going to use the gift certificate or did I want a refund? It took me a while to remember what they were talking about. I’m so happy Broadway shows are so expensive and I had more money at the time!! It’s weird, but every once in a while something like this happens. I get a little bit of money by way of my mother. It’s like she keeps giving me presents from the afterlife. Thank you, mom!

Another view from my publisher’s office. This is of the Carmine Street pool, which is a little bit evil. (I tell the story here.) They haven’t filled the pool with water yet. I thought they always did that by memorial day.

  1. You have a stronger stomach than I if you are going to Splice. I watched the previews at the movie theater and all I could think was how far Adrian Brody had fallen since the Pianist.

  2. Please let us know what you think of “Sex & City 2″…haven’t seen it yet, very curious! ENJOY your belated b.d. week.
