Celebrating My 30th Birthday

You know you've been spending too much time in the office when...

You're at home and you have to call someone... and you instinctively dial "0" to call out.


I've only been on the job for a month and already I need a vacation!

I turn 30 this year, and I've been wondering how I should spend it. Whjatever I do, I intend to spend it somewhere else. My friend Andrea, a seasoned traveller, says I should travel by myeslf at least once in my life, and I agree. I think the week of my 30th birthday would be a great opportunity to go off on my own. Alas, due to lack of imagination (and lack of funds), I find myself not knowing where to go. I'm already going to miss this year's Stoker Awards, so I don't know what else to aim for.

So far, my choices are:

a. Hong Kong Disneyland - Because nobody can resist Disneyland

b. The Farm - I've got 30 years worth of toxins to get rid of!

c. Any Asian country that has Placebo and/ or k.d. lang playing - Placebo was in China on my birthday last year -- I found out after and have been kicking myself for missing the opportunity ever since.

d. Vietnam - Because Andrea says so.

e. Disneyworld in August, when all the goths converge there - Because it's a small world after all.

f. Ireland - Because I used to be a rabid Celtophile. And it might give me a chance to stalk Garth Ennis.

g. I'm open to suggestions. Let me know what I should do/ where I should go!

We're going to Ireland next year, and you should come. Are you planning far? Near? South of France is nice, Singapore for the food? Vietnam for the temples? Peru? Easter Islands?

How about the Farm? I guess getting rid of 30 years of toxins and tension is a better option than the rest.
Happy Birthday. By the way, you could also try Hawaii. I love that place.
Peep into my blog on birthday ecards for some beautiful e-greeting cards and other interesting info.
