Today is my birthday. Bree and I kicked it off last night at the stroke of midnight at this magical place called Manray, or as I have dubbed it "The happiest place on earth"
She and I went to see some poetry and then she suggested we go there to ring in my new year. It was completely different than my usual rock clubs, but I found it to be refreshing and fun and everybody was so nice (and so beautiful!).
The DJ even announced my birthday and played songs for me.
In a lot of ways it reminded me of a place we used to go to in Alaska when I was still a teen, so it gave a shot in the arm of that youthful feeling.
Tonight I'm celebrating with several more of my lovely friends. I'm a very lucky girl as I have the greatest friends ever. I feel very loved.
What more could one ask for on their birthday?

This mixed CD was not so much made up of my favorite songs by these artists, but by the songs that I can "see" when I hear them. As in, they start playing and I can almost see the scene in the movie they would be accompanying.
(Bonus points if you know which movies the ones that have already been in movies were in.)
