Yes, it's my birthday today, August 30th.

And apparently Cameron Diaz's, Mary Wollstonecraft's, Shirley Booth and someone named Dennis Healey. Well, we're a motley bunch, but that's okay.

Yesterday I had a conversation with a girl whose age I couldn't really determine. I figured between 25-30. SHe was 23 it turned out and referred to how hard it is for the twenty-something set in this town to meet people. I said, "Well it isn't so easy for the thirty-somethings" either and she replied:

"Yeah, but you guys all have families and stuff."

Ah, so just in case you didn't know, once you are thirty-something you are officially uninteresting and probably just worried about kids and crap...

I'm happy. I have a really good life. The career I want. I am very, very grateful on this day of my birth. Thanks to all of you, and you know who you are--friends and more friends--who've helped make things so darn good.

P.S. My new professional website really is live today: www.jordanrosenfeld.net

Happy Birthday! It's my brother's birthday too. A popular day.

I sort of resent when people use "family" to mean "children." That hurts everyone in all sorts of ways. I'm sure she didn't mean it, of course.

Steph, happy bday to your brother! I guess it is popular.

As for the young girl, she meant no harm, she just didn't realize that us thirty-somethings don't like to be lumped away in one category that essentially means, "no longer cool." :)

Thanks Myf!

Happy Birthday!

Not that you aren't drop dead gorgeous now, but you were a scarily beautiful child. Those shots of you at age 5 are breathtaking.

Happy Birthday, hot stuff!

I guess since I am an even 30, I may not quite qualify as a thirty- something. But my life is definitely more interesting now than it was last year, let alone seven years ago.

Your life sounds pretty interesting to me, so I have a feeling you'd agree with that sentiment for yourself.
