Holy crap! 38 years old. Where’d half my life go? No, seriously, sometimes it feels like I’m well on my way to death and only barely getting started on life. Although, I suppose, when I was my niece’s age, my niece was born, so I guess I’ve had some time to get things going.

Birthday, birthday, happy birthday.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes, in person, in cards, over the phone and on Facebook! Thanks to Veedub, Jock and Red for taking me out for pints and wings. Thanks to all the folks at work with whom I went for lunch.
