Slow Sunday Jam 1.12.2014: Birthday Edition

It’s my birthday!!

Today, I’m turning twenty-nine, and I have the great good fortune that my birthday is on a Sunday, that my wife is not on a boat somewhere, that I finished all the laundry on Friday so we won’t have to worry about it today, and we live in southern California, so it’s going to be sunny and pretty outside.

I don’t even think it needs saying, but here it is:  woot!

When Amanda asked what I wanted to do for my birthday, my demands were very specific.

1. I want to go to Barnes & Noble and saunter aisles slowly, with a hot beverage in hand, and linger over books, and read first pages, and at long last, make a decision and get myself a new book.

2. I want her to make chicken tortilla soup, which is one of my most favorite things she makes. I want to pour it over a bowl full of tortilla chips, and I want to snack on homemade guacamole, which is one of my other most favorite things she makes, and I want to drink two Coronas, with lime. The lime is not negotiable. A lime-free Corona is a sad Corona, yielding a sad birthday.

3. That night, I want to cozy up in bed and watch Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the Golden Globes. Because awesome ladies.

And so since this is my birthday, and the day of Slow Sunday Jamming, today’s list is really just a bunch of stuff I’m into. Which, I suppose, isn’t so different from every other week. Whatever. It’s my birthday!

    1. We did the Barnes & Noble part yesterday, and Amanda convinced me to get two books! I got A Visit from the Goon Squad, and The Paris Wife. Now I just have to decide which one to start first! 🙂

  1. happy birthday! although belated by one day (but i’m early, b/c it’s monday almost before 7 am here, SO CLOSE TO ACTUAL BIRTHDAY). I hope you had a wonderful day doing exactly what i would like to do on my own. Barnes + Noble is one of my favorite places to hang out, except for when i realize i need a small fortune to take everything i want home with me. Always sobering. 🙂
    love your links this week (as usual), although i am not allowing myself to look at the downton quotes as i (in theory) taped it and have yet to watch it OH NO: i wonder if it taped?! I didn’t see it taping? CRISIS.
    in other news, i still call DVR recording “taping.” I just realized that. 😦

    1. Haha! I think that’s a common occurrence. Geez… remember actually taping shows? And then you’d realize you didn’t have a tape, or you taped over stuff you hadn’t yet watched, or the machine was so hard to program that it just didn’t record? Technology. Kind of awesome.
      And thanks for the birthday wishes!! 🙂
