30 days until 30 years.

my 20's are over soon.

a few wishes for my third decade:

- a pair of wellies

- to see japan, ireland, iceland, venice... not necessarily in that order

- to live in a new city

- more blue hair

-to be healthier (if not a bit thinner and more in shape)

- people to stop asking when we're having kids (i would like my husband to myself for a while, thank you)

- to have one job

- or perhaps to go to grad school

- for snow patrol to stop sucking

- for america to be as smart as it is obese

- to find my long lost copy of the YELLOW SUBMARINE cd, or for whoever has it to realize that it is not theirs

- for the last two Harry Potter movies to do the novels justice

- to see more Broadway

- to see more UK

- drawers full of new underwear and sandal socks

- new danskos

- to have more me time

- a continued happy marriage (i heart my russian)

- new tires and windshield, perhaps even back bumper, for the pick-up

- for my friends to be happy and successful

- for my place of employment to be happy and successful (i heart my job)

- to see Equus again when it comes to NYC

- to never lose any of the friendships i currently hold dear

welcome to the world, miss evelyn!

we're glad you're here.

things that have happened in my half-year of blog absentia:

- we moved into the bigger half of our duplex when our awesome landlady moved to france for two years. Now we have a living room! And a Wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

-i have a new boss, not a new job

-i retired from props. forever. (we'll see)

- we got our greencard! the interviewer was an immigrant himself. he totally didn't understand what i did for a living - ("Shakespeare? Like the guy who wrote plays?") and asked more questions about the russian's doctorate program than about our marriage...

The highlight was when he asked this: "Ilya, have you ever been convicted of a crime? Were you in the Komsomol?" crime and communism - they go hand in hand, you know.

- with our shiny new greencard, we traveled to the UK. There I saw the splendor of old York, spent Easter Sunday drinking a Guinness in beautiful Avebury, set my watch to official PM time, and saw Daniel Radcliffe take his kit off. (He was truly magnificent in Equus, btw.)

- died large chunks of my hair blue - as you may have noted from last night's post. it faded to purple. then i did it again. well, my stylist did. (she's awesome!)

- saw many a concert, with many more to come this year. high on the list of favorites: Bloc Party and the Decemberists with the Atlanta Symphony!

-started playing music trivia. which rocks my world.

- and worked. way too much.

for those who ask, "why the blue hair?"... here's the progression of childhood obsessions leading up to it...

i am showing my 30 years, huh?

though i will say, i never expected that people would almost only comment to compliment. i guess that means maybe i don't look like a blue-haired freak!
