Today is my 29th birthday. Erika, whose 25th birthday was yesterday, surprised me with a party last night at Tuman's. It was wonderful. I caught up with a lot of folks, and I think we all enjoyed ourselves _ the best birthday in recent memory. The only thing that would've made it better would've been my dear old pals from out of town. I know I'll see you all soon enough.
Happy birthday to my great friend, Aaron. We were born on the same day, a year apart... back in the mid-70s _ a magical time.
