Yep, it’s my birthday today… turned the grand old 32. Fun fun. All things considered, it’s been a very very good birthday for me. :-)
I didn’t go out to dinner tonight, mainly because Mom and Dad took me out to dinner on Saturday night. We went to the Cheesecake Factory, which was excellent as always. As for lunch today… my coworkers and I went to Todai’s, which is a Chinese and sushi place at the Marq*Q Plaza at I-10 and Silber. I had a hankering for sushi, and I figured it was the one place where everyone could agree on. Unfortunately, the CFO didn’t show up and Mike (my IT coworker) got caught in a project that he was given literally at the last minute, so it was just four of us. Still, I enjoyed myself.
As for presents, I got from my parents this morning:
- Audio by Blue Man Group on CD
- Batman: The Animated Series volume 1 on DVD
- Battlestar Galactica season one on DVD
- A Logitech Cordless Desktop MX5000 Laser
I still need to import the BMG CD into my Powerbook’s iTunes and get it replicated over to my main PC and my iPod. I did get the Logitech Cordless Desktop operational; that took a bit of doing, as the software CD-ROM was missing from the box. I did manage to locate the drivers on their FTP server, after unsuccessfully trying to get them on their website. It’s working nice right now, as the mouse is more responsive than my old one, and the keyboard is working fine. The LCD display on the keyboard’s neat, as it displays information from the system. Right now it’s showing info about the track currently playing in iTunes… heh.
All in all, though, it was a great birthday, and I’m grateful for everything I’ve gotten. :-)
