A Very Important To-Do List

I believe firmly in spending your birthday doing all of the things you like best and planting seeds for the coming year. Here, then, is my schedule for today, which I officially have off work:

8:15 a.m.: Get up -- check
8:20 a.m.: Go for run -- check
9 a.m.: Return, shower, eat breakfast, check e-mail -- check
9:52 a.m.: Blog (evidently)
10 a.m.: Line-edit a lovely book (Sara Lewis Holmes's The New Recruit)
Noonish: Prep for rest of day
12:30: Head into Manhattan
1 p.m.: Have lunch with friends from work
2 p.m.: Spend the afternoon at MoMA
5:30 p.m.: Something of unutterable awesomeness, still to be determined
7:30 p.m.: Dinner with James and more dear friends
9:50 p.m.: See a Bollywood movie (maybe) -- Loins of Punjab Presents

Not a bad way to begin my thirtieth year on earth, I hope.

Wishing you all equally productive and pleasurable days!
