Today I am 45 years old. Whee!

Last night Mom and Dad took me, calendula_witch and K— out to the Chart House immediately on our return from San Francisco. The three of us stayed up too late after, as is customary.

Walkies this morning with the_child, then a few minor errands, then JayCon [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] starting at 1 pm today. You all have fun today. I know I will.

Sorry I'm missing it! And I have presents too. For you and Ken and Paul and Julie.

But I just flew into San Francisco. You know, the place you just left?

It was! It was! I enjoyed myself immensely, and gave away a copy of Green.

Happy Birthday, Jay!

I am stuck at work all day so I'll miss JayCon. But, I would like to make a selfish suggestion and recommend the Penguin Pub in Sellwood for a karaoke after-party. Dave and I are hosting there tonight, and I've been told we put on a pretty darned good show.

We were so not up to karaoke. A little time at the Barley Mill, then we punted totally.

Now you can tell the_child that your age is the same as the speed of a phonograph record, and when she responds "Huh?" you can just shake your head and wonder what's wrong with me.

HAPPY JAY DAY!
