what 32 is

Something [livejournal.com profile] amarama posted about her age made me think of this. You know the meme where you google your name and some verb? I tried it with my age.

Some things 32 is...
Magic Johnson's retired jersey #. Magic. Johnson! Get it?
The freezing point of water at sea level in degrees Fahrenheit (not that you needed to google that).
The number of places in the US with "eagle" in their name.
A full set of adult teeth.
The country code to phone Belgium.
A "happy number".

And then I thought about all the 32s I already know - encryption, chess boards, flavors at the ice cream shop.

Today's weather makes me feel like the Postal Service. I've been digging my heels in about fall, not wanting it to come, and the forecast calls for happy times for me. It can be fall at night, and in the morning.

No concerns about the world getting warmer
People thought that they were just being rewarded
For treating others as they'd like to be treated
For obeying stop signs and curing diseases
For mailing letters with the address of the sender
Now we can swim any day in November

Thank you for all the happy birthdays. It was a good one.

It's officially my birthday! I now have an enormous photo of myself framed on the wall as you walk into the door of my apartment. AND an artist's rendition of myself on the facing wall. That's right... even my birthday gifts are apparently self-absorbed. And some are gay. Also, no one listens when you tell them not to bring presents.

My peeps are fantastic. They moved my living room into my bedroom. And back. In the time it took me to have a conversation and a couple of cigarettes outside. That's some motivation!

We also had a nice relaxed stage show at Gay Pride this morning. It was not, despite what everyone else in the tribe seems to feel, a bad set - it was just a contained set and on a stage, neither of which we do a lot. Technically, it was much more controlled and well-executed than our usual performances; it was solid, one of the more consistent performances this iteration of the tribe has done. We've just done so many loud, limit-pushing, interacting with the audience things that a technically good set feels weird, less sexy. Lest you think it was completely dry, though, know that every musician wore sunglasses the entire show.

Tomorrow is my birthday!

My icon this week, by the way, is a picture of me at my sixth or possibly fifth birthday party. My parents and/or I have a picture like this from seriously every year from age 2 to... uh, possibly age 21.
