I Will Also Be The Title Of A Doctor Who Episode.

Tomorrow is my birthday! It is, in fact, that geekiest of birthdays, which, for a brief while, enables one to claim to be the answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. It did fleetingly cross my mind that it might be fun to celebrate with a Hitchhiker's-themed birthday party or something, but I've never thrown a party in my life, and 42 seems a bit old to start changing the habit of a lifetime. Plus, I have to work this weekend, anyway. Still happy birthday to me! And thanks to everybody who's sent a card, or wished me a good one in advance, or, in the case of my mother and grandmother, given me a blanket with a picture of Kirk and Spock on it, because they know me just that well. Heh.

  1. Remember: since your birthday falls on a weekend, calories don't count for the entire weekend. Felicitations!

  2. I remember being really happy when I turned 41, because that was a significant number in Ben-Hur -- but 42 is fun, too. Welcome to the club. :)

    1. Hitchhiker's is way more fun than Ben-Hur. ;) And thanks!

  3. Since you'll be 42 all year, you can take a while to plan a party...
    1) You can throw a party on July 12 next year, to celebrate having been 42 for a whole year without the Vogons destroying the planet.
    2) You can throw a 42-day long party.
    3) You can treat yourself to a book a day for 42 days.
    4) You can invite 42 of your closest friends.

    1. I like #3, but I've already had at least one person threatening to stage an intervention for my book-buying as it is. Plus, I'm out of shelf space for the To-Read piles again.
