Dinner last night was lovely (and huge - breakfast this morning was the remnants of my baked potato, which must have weighed two pounds when I first got it); we did get photos (including a hysterical one of me menacing my poor helpless dessert), but I abruptly ran out of spoons last night between getting them off the SmartCard and actually uploading them to my journal. I was in bed before 10pm for the first time in $DEITY knows how long. I'll post them tonight.

I got a phonecall from my brother, an email from my sister-in-law (signed by her, her husband, their baby, and the cat), and a text message from my "kid" sister (who turns 18 in two weeks, $DEITY help us all), all of which were unexpected and very pleasant surprises. I didn't get a card from my 98-year-old great-aunt, which worries me; she generally sends them out well in advance of the date. I need to call her tonight when I get home and make sure she's okay.

I think I've thanked everyone who wished me happy birthday, with the exception of one or two emails that came in last night. If you posted something for me, and I didn't leave a response, odds are I didn't see it - it was all I could do to keep up with the comments in my own journal. Let me know if I missed you, okay?

There's a barbecue here at work today for the 457631982 birthdays that have happened in my department over the last week or so (starting with our VP and working their way down); I'm feeling vaguely guilty over not having brought anything, but I was never specifically asked. :-/

I should probably do some actual work before we break for lunch, though.

EDITED, considerably later: My aunt did, in fact, send a card, and the mail fairies ate it. :-/

I need not have worried about my lack of a contribution for the barbecue.
