My friend Brooke was telling me earlier tonight about this show on tv where people get their lives made over.  They advertise for people who are skinny people trapped in a fat person's body, or for fat people trapped in a skinny person's body, stuff like that.  People who need help get their performance careers started (although they make it clear, she says, no actors or singers, so we were trying to figure out what they mean by performers, magicians?  mimes?) 
In any case, all this to say this Wednesday I turn 29 and can't help but think I should make a video to send into this makeover show and ask if they do makeovers for early twenty-somethings trapped in late twenty-somethings bodies.  I wonder what they would do with *that* problem.
Oh I'm sure they'd do something.  It would be interesting to see just what.

You're only 21 once...well sometimes twice. Certainly nine times is the limit.

Woohoo, legal drinking age being broken in this Friday (that good for you, Brooke? we'll chat or phone about this soonish, hehe) and then six more years and the presidency. Life is good.

Being twenty-one _is_ hard, though better than not ever being twenty-one. Unless you could skip it via a leap year birthday. That might work out right.

Er. Happy birthday!

so sayeth Hannah
