    Thanks everybody. It's been relatively uneventful. I plan on celebrating next weekend. I got a wake up call from my sister's kinder class. They sang happy birthday over the cell. Other than that, a movie, and then chilled. Weekday birthdays suck. Next week though....FIESTA!











    and I'm still younger than el petey.

    *edit, nevermind.

    Lol, ja man, you are numerous years older than me! The only way I'll wind up using a cane before you is because I actually lift, not because of age.
