Birthday memories:

Went to lunch at Feast with Jodi, Dad's girlfriend Fran, and her daughter Leslie. After lunch, shared a sampler platter of desserts (bread pudding with white chocolate drizzle, tart red cherry pie, creme brulee, and chocolate peanut butter pie) with everyone. Obviously Jodi stayed away from the peanut butter pie, but otherwise everyone shared everything.

Came home, found the postal service had made an early delivery, and had great fun opening stuff.

Went out in search of Guitar Hero II (used), a belated present for Colin, and office supplies for Jodi.
Found most of Jodi's office supplies, found absolutely no bell bottoms that would fit Colin, and eventually ordered Guitar Hero II for $35 ppd. from Amazon, including expedited shipping.

Continued to search for Jodi's office supplies, despite her repeated offers to not bother on my birthday, because I chose to be done with it ASAP. Went for an otherwise entertaining drive ("OK, that's Spring Street, there's West Peachtree, now we're on Spring Street again, look kids, Big Ben, Parliament, oh look, we're on 75/85, damn it, aha, there's the store, now 90 degrees left and 35 degrees up and we're on the roof.")

Came home, went out to fetch dinner (Sushi Avenue for Jodi, a few blocks' walk to Crescent Moon for me), and just at the end of dinner, Chris Case delivered a huge TV as a gift. Jodi says she feels like she's in the game when she plays Super Mario Bros. So far, though, she hasn't been jumping into the ceiling to dislodge pennies.

I'm 32 years old.

My laptop is broken and we can't afford to replace any parts. (So you'll be seeing less of me online, unless I can figure out what's wrong and find a free replacement part somewhere.) Oh well, we got it for free anyway. I just hate being the only person in the house who has to ask someone else for permission to use their computer instead of just using my own.

I'm selling my new digital camera and the lenses, tripod, etc. that go with it. It's the best way to reduce debt and provide for GRE classes, college-visiting road trip, application fees, etc. Jodi says she'll use her savings for moving expenses. I got an unexpected check in the mail, which helps. I'm still selling the camera, and I still need to sell the iPod nano, too. eBay fees are annoying, but I'm not sure I know of a better way to get the best value for this stuff.

Oh well, at least I look hot in my black dress shirt and the jeans I bought a month ago. Never hurts to know people are staring at my butt. ;)

I'm kinda sad about the financial situation we got ourselves into, but we're dealing with it. It was just a bad idea to be living like a dual-income, upper-middle-class family. We aren't.

And despite all that, I'm actually fairly happy today. Go figure.

Oh, if you're a Babylon 5 fan, you might enjoy The End of the World, Babylon 5 Style, which I wrote yesterday.
