"The best birthdays of all are those that haven’t arrived yet." (Robert Orben)

Today was one of those not good, not bad, not anything days. Just sort of neutral. Then I remembered that it's my half birthday! Hooray! (Of course this also means that we are officially half way through 2010, which is NOT ok. This also means I am one step closer to 27 and therefore one step closer to 30, which is also not ok. Why am I happy about this day?)

  2. Visited Jan in Los Angeles.
