My husband just reminded me that my 33rd birthday is in a few months, capping off a pretty disappointing year of career failure (don't go into screenwriting, folks, especially if you're a woman who wants to write sci-fi.) It's been my dreams for years to go to Club 33 for my 33rd birthday, but I've yet to find anyone who can get me in!
Before you all start yelling at me, note: I'm not asking and not begging, but like the writer that I am, looking for a little vicarious enjoyment! Who has great stories about getting their wish granted and going to Club 33 (pre the enormous off-center window, of course.) Any great engagement stories? Wonderful wedding anniversaries? How excited were you when you finally got the magic "yes!" to a reservation?
I may not get to make my dream come true, but I'd sure like to hear some of yours to try and cheer myself up!
