Happy Birthday to Me!

| 37 Comments | No TrackBacks

Yesterday, I turned 33.

Maman made me pot roast and Papa made marble cake with white frosting - his favorite! :)

I'll be headed back to Edinburgh in a few days - and perhaps back to D.C. tonight or tomorrow and it was really nice to have a birthday dinner with my parents. I haven't done that for ten years.

I usually forget it's my birthday. I'm don't remember dates well at all. I could never remember Jen's birthday - and then Liza's birthday was two days before or two days after or something like that, and I could never remember that, and when I'd invariably get it wrong, she'd get a wounded look and say: "No, that's your old girlfriend's birthday!"

But then, Liza's a lunatic.

Happy birthday, Nae! So, um, does this mean Skylor's wedding was postponed due to the injuries incurred trying to get to Mendon's wedding?

Feliz cumpleanos! I've been dreaming in Spaniah lately- Perhaps becuasee I've been excercising my Spanish speaking muscles with some of my students parents. I'm looking forward to 33!

No, this means that, when it came down to deciding between Skylor's wedding - and Skylor's a good friend - and one more day with Mommy, I just couldn't leave. I couldn't do it. So I stayed. And it was good. I haven't had a birthday dinner in nine years.

Happy Birthday Nathan!

Those last couple posts remind me of the time you gave me an assortment of fromage from "The Cheese Shop" sketch (although you never found Venezuelan Beaver cheese), and I nailed a stuffed parrot to a perch and gave it to you for yours.

Hey, Basil!

Now you have reminded me! Ha ha! Wow. I think that parrot nailed to a perch may be somewhere in the attic still...

I never did find Venzuelan Beaver cheese, nor Japanese Sage Derby, although I have since found that the latter exists; Sage Derby is a common enough style of cheese and a friend in Tokyo assures me you can get it there. It makes me wonder about the former.

Sadly, Venezuela has no native beavers amongst its fauna.

Oh phew.

Native, perhaps not. But I wonder if they could be imported beavers, or if the beavers are milked outside the country, then the cheese processed and aged in Venezeula?

Perhaps there is a unique Venezuelan style of cheesemaking, and if those unique techniques are applied to beaver's milk of ANY nationality and in ANY nation, it can be rightly called "Venezuelan Beaver cheese."

That is, I'm holding out hope that it really exists.

I want to encourage my friends here to visit this very cool blog!

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like 'Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of "neighbors" will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune "Social" is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
