I don't usually celebrate my birthday, but as I have a job and coworkers now, I felt obliged to treat them out, or something. And I had absolutely no idea how to go about this so I've spent the whole of last week fretting and being a huge neurotic ass. I looked for deliveries online, and as I hated phones with a passion, I opted to place an order and taste-test in person.
And then next day, I couldn't concentrate because I was so anxious about all kinds of stuff, like a) would the delivery come on time, b) won't they get lost, c) would they come at all, d) I HATE THIS SO MUCH GOD LET'S JUST GET THIS DAY OVER WITH
Moral of the story is, I'll never be an events organizer.
I wanted to unwind afterwards so I went to a mall after work. I thought I'd buy clothes or new shoes but decided against it and bought three books before my superego finds out and tells me not to. Brought home Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Philip K. Dick, The Road by Cormac McCarthy and The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkein (because I'm seriously going through a Hobbit withdrawal!!). I'm all set for my weekend! (And the weekend after that, and after that!)
This was a card I got from the company. I know it was generic but I was still real touched.
I'll spend this weekend being a lazy slob and marathoning the LOTR trilogy!!
Oh and thanks to everybody who greeted me; I haven't been on facebook to reply yet but thanks so much! ♥♥
