2 weeks and hardly counting

My birthday is in 2 weeks. Usually, I’m atwitter with excitement in the countdown–this year, I suddenly looked at the calendar and thought “Shit! My birthday’s in two weeks!?” I finally gave my mom some suggestions for gifts, and they are the lamest I’ve ever come up with. I’ve asked for a belt. Actually, two belts, one brown, one black. My old belts don’t fit anymore–though i can not figure out why. (I’m not much smaller or bigger than I was when the belts fit.) But I couldn’t think of anything else.

Since I realized how close the 23rd is, I’m thinking about it quite a bit. A little introspective. I’m worried that it’s going to suck this year: day before Thanksgiving, I’ll be flying, will anyone think to email or call? Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I second Laura’s suggestion. Though new belts are always thrilling too. :)

    Happy almost birthday. I find that I’m taken by surprise by the approach of my birthday more and more each year.

    Will you be turning 28? 28 is a perfect number, you know (an integer that is the sum of its proper positive divisors, excluding itself). Isn’t that exciting???? Your last one was 6 and your next one will be 496, so enjoy! (Though when you’re 29 you’ll be prime. Oh god I’m a geek.)

    This is just a guess, but I think the reason your old belts might not be fitting is because pants are fitting lower these days and hips tend to be wider than waists. I’ve experienced this phenomenon myself and I’ve had to get some new belts.
