Sort of a day off. I didn't go to the office, but I wrote up an eval, went to the cleaners, did the grocery shopping, registered to vote because my registration was somehow placed on "inactive." Good thing I checked the Cook County site. Also applied to renew my passport, bought cards and wrote thank you notes for gifts from my supposed-to-be-though-actually-not-a-surprise birthday party last weekend, but I still feel like I didn't get much done.
Also, it's f****g hot at 9:00 pm, and we avoid using a/c, but I can't take it, so I turned it on. My resting bastard face was also noted, thank you very much.
On a more positive note, this is my favorite birthday gift. Totally unexpected, and a reason to look forward to cooler weather.
And now I'm going to pop open the bottle of Grey Goose a friend gave me for my birthday, and I'll have a vodka martini without the vermouth*. It's been sitting in the freezer, just waiting. Hmmm... I just realized my birthday gifts had a bit of goose theme. I wonder what that means.
*One of my early jobs was bartending. At one place I worked, we never added vermouth to martinis. They were straight gin or vodka. Not a single person ever complained, except for a couple who complained that they weren't dry enough. Heh. Not making that up. It's all true.
