I'd like to extend my thanks to those who gave wishes in person, online, on LJ or whatever for my birthday yesterday - y'all are very kind, and make far too much out of this. Speaking of making far too much of things, lady_curmudgeon gave me balloons and three cards for my birthday and the cats gave me a card too. All told it's much more than I was anticipating.
In other news, I'm ready for this week to be over.
