So today was my birthday. Woo! I'm still around and mobile, so that's a blessing. I guess I haven't posted since just before my surgery, so as you can see, that went well. No more crazy distended bellybutton for me!
We had a lovely party last night at our place. Julie did a lot of work wrangling everyone to come to our place and making some delicious food and we played a bunch of boardgames all night. Monikers was probably the most fun of the bunch. I sometimes forget that I actually DO have friends out there, so it was nice to have a bunch of them come over and yuck it up for the night :)
As I kick off yet another personal trip around the sun, I'm looking forward to (hopefully) spending more time actually getting into some kind of shape that isn't just round and buoyant so that I'll be around for a few more birthdays. I've also been reading more (and not just comics) so that's a trend I'd like to see continue. As much as I like my videogames, I'm finding that it's just as pleasant to spend an afternoon just reading a book in a comfy chair as it is to save the universe on the TV... What's old is new again, I guess.
So thanks everyone for all of the well wishes and feel free to bug me about getting out there and riding my bike or at least walking regularly and maybe not eating quite so much garbage. I'm not as young as I used to be!
Oh, and if you have a chance and are so inclined, spare a prayer or happy thought for my grandparents. My grandpa isn't doing too well these days and that's also wearing on my grandma, who can't go to see him as often as she'd like. They'd really appreciate it.
