It's my birthday today.

I'm thirty.

My dad asked me how I felt about turning 30. Was I nervous? Angsty? I said I felt fine. Why shouldn't I? I look 21 and act 12. The only thing 30 about me is my birth certificate. *grin* It's going to be a good year! I'm a kid in a grown-up world. It's like playing dress-up with legal clout.

And tonight we're having a Vampire Ball to celebrate. Everybody has to come as a vampiric alter-ego and in costume. I'll be myself. Obviously. But everybody else has to abandon mortality for a night.

Don't fear mortality, pretty ones! For the way you live lends itself to immortality. The joys you find, adventures you embark on, and fearlessness with which you face all things determines the immortal qualities of your soul.
