Yesterday was my birthday -- the big 42. It was a nice, low-key day. I went to the Zendo in the morning (an hour early because I forgot to reset my clock!) and then relaxed at home all afternoon. I got some calls from friends and cleaned my floors. Then my friend David, his friend Jimmy and I went to dinner at Montparnasse, one of my favorite restaurants. I came home and watched “The Science of Sleep,” a very bizarre movie starring the very adorable Gael Garcia Bernal.
All this was after going out with my friend Kelly on Saturday night in Brooklyn -- a two-martini Saturday night. Whew!
I like being in my 40s. I feel much more stable, settled and peaceful than I did when I was younger.
I essentially turned off all campaign news over the weekend.
