Here are some party pics as promised. (ETA: please e-mail pictures if you, Dear Readers, took any)

Whoo-hoo! They put me on the sign. I always like public pronouncements of my birthday. Thanks Annie's.
they had a sign for me!

Here's me having just-woken-up, pre-party jitters. What if no one comes?!?"

Thanks!

Thanks everyone who helped me celebrate my 40th Birthday.

Especially [livejournal.com profile] smallstages for keeping me calm and doing so much that needed to be done, [livejournal.com profile] anarqueso for the help with cheese prep and set up, and [livejournal.com profile] cindymonkey for helping transport and set up. I couldn't have thrown that party without you guys. Also big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] amarama for the cake, and [livejournal.com profile] defenestr8r and [livejournal.com profile] confabulator for travelling so far. And to everyone who helped clean up.

The sad part of the party was checking my e-mail right before I left and finding out that Lance Hahn had just died. Before I even made it to the club I got another call and text message with the same news. Maybe 20% of the party knew Lance. I don't know how many had heard the news but most probably did before they left.

Today I'm going to write about Lance and tomorrow or the next day I'll upload all the pics from the party. It was definitely a day of mixed emotions. We had a great party and we lost a good person.

It's been a great birthday week. One of the best I've ever had. Though truly, I am usually disdainful of birthday weeks instead of birthdays, I figured 40 was a good year to stretch a little.

and hey, I'm not sure if I posted about this, but I'm having a party tonight:

Please join me Sunday October 21 2007, 5 PM - 11 PM at Annie's Social Club, Folsom and 5th, San Francisco.

- Punk Rock Karaoke in the back room at 6 PM
- DJ Carolyn (KUSF/Epicenter) in the main room at 7 PM
- *Special Reunion* of Feelings on a Grid at 8:30PM* (ish)
- DJ Very, Very, Jerry Lee at 9 PM.

There will be lots of cheese.

Everyone's invited! (It's a no-host bar if that's not obvious)

Annie's is ex-Cherry Bar, ex-Covered Wagon if that helps you place it. Thankfully the black light from the old days is long gone.

Thanks!

Thanks for all the b-day wishes! It kind of blew me away. You all know how to make a comment-slut happy. I'm disabling comments here to show my sincerity and respect.

Here's me on Ocean Beach celebrating my 40th:
40th b-day

and look, My party's on the Annie's calender 10/21. Yay!

Thanks to everyone who helped make this one of my best birthdays ever. Seriously. I am touched.

I turn 40 today. I had no epiphanies revelations or lightning bolts. Some of my joints ache, but they've been aching for years. 40 feels a lot like 39 so far. I think I'm gonna go to breakfast with [livejournal.com profile] goodbadgirl and then go to the beach.

I had dinner with my family last night so big sorry to [livejournal.com profile] cindymonkey and [livejournal.com profile] goodbadgirl for missing you guys at Sister Spit. I heard you were both awesome. I would have gone if I could even if it would have been my third reading in a week, and I was nearing my limit.

The big news is that it's only 6 days until my birthday party!

Please join me Sunday October 21 2007, 5 PM - 11 PM at Annie's Social Club, Folsom and 5th, San Francisco.

- Punk Rock Karaoke in the back room at 6 PM
- DJ Carolyn (KUSF/Epicenter) in the main room at 7 PM
- *Special Reunion* of Feelings on a Grid at 8 PM*

If you are too far away to come, just pretend like you live in the area. I need to nail down the booking soon. I'm pretty sure I know what I'll do, but thought I'd have a little poll. Saturdays are good for that.

In about 6 months I turn 40. I haven't been stressing about it, but I've been trying to figure out what to do. Sunday I went to a birthday party for two fabulous co-workers at a certain bar and I realized it would be perfect. I gotta talk to the bar folks but it seems ideal. There is a full bar, space for a cheese room, a DJ area/dance floor, and it's fairly easily accesible by public transit. I'm going to go for DJs not bands unless Feelings on a Grid will do a reunion show.

Whoo-hoo! I'm excited already.
