1. mgrasso has something going on today; am I allowed to link to it in a public entry? Edit: Mikey says it's ok. If you're on his friends list, you can get on his iPod War love train.

2. Went to my CBT last night; the session was moving along, as it does (I'm normally a quiet person and so it surprised the hell out of me when I look up and see that I've been talking almost non-stop for 30 minutes) and we started to talk about my wierd headache that I've been having, and then suddenly BLAMMO - we hit upon a core issue, avoidance. I've got a lot of private rumination to do on that particular topic over the next 2 weeks, which I'm not necessarily going to go into here, but, I mean, holy shit - I've been using avoidance tactics to some extent probably since I was 5 years old. This is potentially a huge development.

3. I turn 30 in exactly one week. 30!!! Jeebus. I'm not really that freaked out about it, actually - partly because I'm one of the last people to turn 30 in my group of friends, but also because I never really set up the concept of "30" as being some sort of incredibly important milestone the way I did for 25. When I was in college, I had this whole thing about how if I wasn't fully supporting myself through music when I was 25, I would quit entirely and go back to school (to study... something). Now, however... I'm married to my best friend and soulmate, I'm in a band I really like, my job isn't totally sucking the life out of me, I'm living in a great apartment and I've got the 2 cutest puppies in the entire world... I don't necessarily have any gigantic long-term goals at the moment, besides getting healthy.

4. I guess it's a good thing that there are no Xbox360s to be found in the New York metropolitan area until March, because I went to the eye doctor yesterday; between the eye exam and the 2 pairs of glasses (including, finally, prescription sunglasses), I spent an obscene amount of money. Lenscrafters has this cool 6-month payoff plan, though, which I signed up for, so at least I won't be starving to death.

Damn, I thought I had enough for 5.

Sure, but it won't help anyone who's not Friended. :)
I turn 31 in exactly six days. Turning 30 didn't faze me...but turning 31 seems to be a bit more of an...issue? Maybe it's because now I am "in" my thirties.

Either way, I'm having breakfast tomorrow!
Unless you die in your sleep. Happy almost-birthday! You are 366 days older than me.
30 was nuthin'. 35, however, was a biggie.

Shoo, I was still finishing my #@!$%^ DMA when I was 25! And now look where it has gotten me!

Xbox 360 -- $400.00
Being able to actually see what you are playing -- priceless!
