10:53 am - So I'm 26 now....
Hmmm. As usual, things don't seem much different. :-)

It was a quiet weekend, though not a bad one. My DVDs of the first season of The Sentinel came, and I got to watch the first four episodes. Much fun! Also, mistraltoes, I devoured most of Pulitzer yesterday. :-)

A couple of friends took me out for lunch yesterday (mmm, sushi), and then I allowed myself to splurge on a couple of trade paperback comic collections.

Saturday night a different friend took me to a movie (Akeelah and the Bee--very sweet, good acting) and then out to dinner, and he refused to let me pay anything because it was my birthday present. It was really nice to have someone keep me company, instead of just hanging around my rather empty-feeling house.

So I'm 26. Wonder what will happen between now and this time next year?

26...I'm afraid you're never going to be able to do anything truly breathtaking in mathematics from this point on...

(sorry, just saw Proof. :-D)

Yum, what's your favorite?

*dies* I actually just *read* Proof, and this same topic recently came up on Numb3rs as well. Heh.

Good thing I'm not a mathematician, then, huh?

I like most of sushi I've had, but tuna sashimi (sp?) has to be up there among the favorites.

Quite so, although I'm fascinated by mathematicians and how they immerse themselves so deeply into the "source code of the universe" that it forms a little universe unto themselves.

Makes me wish I had that little book of academic/scientific humor I got years ago. A good deal was impenetrable to a layman but it had some real gems in there.

I like most of sushi I've had, but tuna sashimi (sp?) has to be up there among the favorites.

Tuna is wonderful, but I think I prefer salmon just the tinest bit more. The best I've ever had, though, was I believe called a Dragonfly Roll (or something similar). A tempura prawn-filled roll with slices of tuna, salmon, and grilled eel (yes!) sashimi on top, with just a tiny dab of hot sauce on each piece. Good lord.

Happy Birthday, my dear - dammit, I thought I had the Birthdays facility on my LJ enabled. I really don't know what I have to do avoid missing the birthdays of all my friends.

Thank you! :-)

That annoys me, too; I *know* have that tool enabled (I checked a while ago), but it doesn't seem to do anything.

You're six months older than me? Win!

Happy birthday! I hope you enjoyed the splurge. :)

Exactly 6 months? That would be amusing.

I did enjoy the splurge; David Mack (I think that's his name) is a really splendid artist, and I bought a Daredevil graphic novel just because he drew it (okay, I also like Daredevil, but hey, this one was for the art).

I'm glad you had a good birthday, hon. I look forward to celebrating you when you're here! It's so hard when we're far away... But I should have a package out to you soon, late, I know but still!

HUGE, GINORMOUS HUGS!

I love you, girl!!!!!

*HUGS*

Thank you--for the lovely ecard, as well. I miss you too.

Package, huh? :-D Ooooooo.... I still have one coming from the parentals as well. My birthday's going to last a whole week, at this rate! *snerk*

D'oh! I saw that it was going to be your birthday a couple of days ago, but I didn't remember to post. *blush*

Happy birfday!

Aw, thank you! :-) And no worries; half my birthday stuff seems to be "late." I just think of it as more birthday.

I was thinking of you yesterday. Meant to post birthday greetings, but didn't get it done, sorry. So, a belated happy birthday, and have a wonderful year!

Oh! Thank you. :-) You get a free pass; your gift got here earlier than most, and I was reading in ON the birthday in question, so.... (the wrapping doesn't count, *snerk*)

Just saw Akeelah and the Bee. It is a great movie. Even preceded by a trailer for yet another Adam Sandler comedy, it's reminded me that there are still vital reasons to Go To The Movies. :-)
