It’s my birthday again today, just like it was last year, and the year before when I turned Old + 1, so that makes me Old + 3.
- Yesterday, when Rachel came downstairs to my office in the basement to get me for dinner, she said, “Daddy, I have a BWOON (balloon) for you.” “Oh yeah?” I said, “Where is it?” “In my closet! We got it from Target. Mommy said don’t tell you.”
At the dinner table, Adrian also goes, “Daddy, we have BWOON for you. And… COMPWOOTER game!” Elaine is trying hard not to crack up. That’ll teach her to keep secrets from me.
I haven’t gotten the computer game yet, so I can’t tell you which one it is, but I can tell you I’m hoping for Call of Duty 4, and my guess for what Elaine actually got me is Guitar Hero 3 (which would also rock).
- Elaine still managed to surprise me this morning when I came down to my office and it was COMPLETELY CLEAN. There used to be dirty clothes everywhere, wires, books, bags, boxes… all gone. Stored. Sorted. Vaccuumed. I stood at the doorway with my mouth open for a while. This would’ve taken me a WEEK to do. She did it in an hour this morning while I was still sleeping. I don’t know where any of my stuff is anymore, but this is still amazing.
- I got an email from my dad which consists solely of a forward of the automatic reminder that Amazon sent him about my birthday. Subject: “Fwd: Bernie’s Birthday Reminder”, Message: “Hi. You asked to be reminded today of Bernie’s birthday. etc…” That’s it. That’s AWESOME.
Super busy as always, still working on the next chapter of aLp whenever I get a few free minutes at a time, coming at you… “soon”. BLAH BLAH BLAH
