Signs that this was not my second 29th birthday...
I slept through the 12-midnight hour and very grumpily and groggily took enthusiastic phone calls wishing me a Happy Birthday.
Had a Happy Birthday nevertheless. Phone calls, books, nice time at a friend's place ..people that couldn't be here ensured that I had a good time any way. Felt nice.
Will celebrate it all over again with niece soon..and that will be my second 29th. :)
