Happy Birthday

They say it's your birthday* -- well it's my birthday, too, yeah!


Oh hell, I'm in my late 30s. How did *that* happen?
Still in the same running age group, though, so that's something.


Oh, and only 9 months until Christmas. Start your shopping now!


*You = Elton John and Gloria Steinem, among others.

Many happy returns of the day, Dr. V. May you have many years of being noisy, scolding, and domineering!!

Thanks everyone!

The Boyfriend and I tooled around the countryside in Neighboring State to look at the area where we're fantasizing we could buy some land. It's still a real possibility, but we discovered that some of the [Ethnic Immigrant] Hills area is seriously ticky-tacky -- plastic dinosaur parks, waterslides, fake Old West towns (huh?!), and cheesy references to the Ethnic Immigrants after which the area is named. If you've been to the Wisconsin Dells, it's a bit like that on a smaller scale (though there was a eerily familiar giant Paul Bunyan statue).

And while we were doing all this, I started to come down with the sore throat and cold Boyfriend's had for a week. Boo! I'm not supposed to get sick on my birthday! I'm not supposed to get sick at all -- I don't get sick!

But I discovered that a screwdriver made my throat feel good enough for a nice steak dinner that night. So now you know -- throat hurts too much to swallow? Have a screwdriver!

Happy Birthday, a bit late, but... heck, I'm always 400 years behind!

Thanks to the latecomers, too!

And Bardiac, your funny comment reminds somewhat tangentially of the time a student in a survey class discussion section wrote on my eval that I "was always a century behind lecture." Uh, that's because when the lecturere said "mid 14th century" I wrote 1350 on the board! Doh!
