Quite Quiet Birthday

Today is – well, yesterday was – my birthday. I think I am officially over the hill – I have reached the age where I only get older, without recieving any additionl benefits from society for the increase in age. Well, I guess there’s the whole car rental and insurance cost thing at 25, but thats not really much of a landmark, in my opinion.

After a short day at work, followed by lego league, robotics administrivia, homework, and class, I ended up with my family, and my good friends Shai and Theo, at P.F. Chang’s for the third time in recent history. We were treated to the same waitress we had the first time – and due mainly to my mother’s persistent questioning, we actually learned quite a bit about her. Life stories aside, however, she is probably the best waitress I have ever had, at any resturant, ever. She is quick, accurate, courteous, fun, talkative… realy quite a delight to interact with. It just too bad that Maneesh and I didn’t have the luck to have her wait our table when we ate there. We seem to have bad luck that way.

But anyway, the food was excellent, and as the fourth meal of the day for me, I ended up, especially after the generous helping of cheesecake, stuffed quite to the gills, an effect I am still trying to come down from.

Seeing Theo again was a good experience, and Shai too since I haven’t seen him in a while either. My Mom took it upon herself to buy me a box of chocolates, which she promptly proceded to eat most of herself while offered the rest to everyone else. I actually managed to eat one before the night was over, as did our waitress. My dad, always finding strange gagets, found me another one – its a smoke torroid launcher.

Yeah. I may fill you in on what that means sometime later, but I have early work tomorrow and all that.

    “Birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and
    how little we’ve grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better
    self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it’s not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.” – Jerry Seinfeld.

    Happy birthday!

    You really want to know if your middle age? Put your self to the test:

    Middle age is when you’ve met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.
