Belated birthday self-gifting
I get myself a present for my birthday every year. This year nothing came to mind so I just never did; after the cancellation of the White Stripes show (which was supposed to be tomorrow night! *sniffle*) the thought of birthday gifts seemed generally unpleasant and liable to backfire somehow. But today after reading this article on the great Chicago novels, I went on a bit of a book-buying binge. Happy birthday to me!
