Made one minor change every ten days to become the healthiest I’ve been. Stayed married to my best friend. Moved up a tier or two in casting. Published fourth book. Embraced inefficiency. Didn’t grow up.

The Sum Of All Years is Bonnie Gillespie’s autobiography in which the word count for each post is limited to the corresponding age for that entry. See them all, here.

    Happy Birthday, BOn, in case I didn’t say it, and what’s ‘group up’?

  13. Bon July 11, 2006 at 11:47 am

    Heeeeee! It was definitely supposed to be “grow up” not “group up” (and now I’ve edited it, so that won’t make any sense to anyone reading the post for the first time after noon on the 11th). That’s what you get when you do your Sum of All Years birthday entry after a bottle of Ferrari-Carano.
    See! I definitely am not GROWING up! Heeeeeee!
    Thanks for all of the amazing well-wishing everyone. Y’all rule! See yaz at Tana’s tonight! Woo!

    I can’t believe I missed a chance to ring this in in person. That’ll learn me not to check in with that MySpace crap. Dammit.
    Happiest of days, girl. And thank you for shouting it from the rooftops.
