Today was my birthday, and as far as birthdays go, I definately can’t complain. Many thanks to all those who sent cards, gifts, or wished me well. As I said, I never intended for today to be that big of a deal, I was just hoping for a low profile day, which I created for myself.
I had lots of trouble sleeping last night, eventually falling asleep at 5am. I woke up at 10am, thinking that if I shorted myself on sleep I would have an easier time falling asleep tonight. We will see how that works out. After waking up and grabbing the first meal, I walked down to the Kendall Barber shop to get the mop chopped. I came back and watched some TV and just hung out. Corinna was supposed to cut out of work early and take me to see Gangs of New York, but she wasn’t able to get out early (since she is taking the next week off to deal with her new apartment). She stopped by after work though to wish me a happy birthday (and give me presents!). The smartass gave me two books, Don’t Know Much About Geography and Cracking the AP European History Exam. You may ask yourself “Self? Why the hell did she give him those books?” The answer is that since I suck at those categories so badly at trivia, and because I applied to audition for Jeopardy, I could use the practice. It is an awesome gift, if not a wee bit embarassing. :)
Another awesome gift came in the mail today, courtesy of

Again, thanks to everyone… It’s nice to grow old with so many cool people as your friends…. I promise to try and annoy you less this year.
