It's kind of like an after-dinner mint. But not really.

Thank you for the birthday greetings! Friends are awesome.

Most of my birthday was spent just like any other day. When I got to work, Kira wished me a happy birthday and there was a card on my desk. Everyone in the office had signed it! That was a sweet surprise. But then no one mentioned my birthday for the rest of the day, so it makes me wonder when they signed it. Probably last week or something. Still, it was more than I had expected. And I'm glad they didn't get a cake for me because I wouldn't have eaten it.

I like how birthdays encourage everyone to write on my Facebook wall. Hardly anyone ever writes on my wall, except Ellen and Emily, so that was nice.

Emily came over after work and made dinner for me while I went for a jog. Then we watched Jeopardy! while we ate. Watching Jeopardy! is a normal occurrence in my family, but last night was even cooler because my friend Clint's co-worker was on it! And he won! I know someone who knows someone who is a Jeopardy! champion! He'll be on again tonight to defend his title, so watch for Louis from Akron, Ohio.

Then Emily and I went to Longfellow's Tavern, a very low-key establishment. It wasn't very busy at all, but it got a little busier later in the evening. We watched the Indians game, which they won 15-9! Ryan, from my old job, stopped by for a short time. He left and then Julian, Nicki, and Clint arrived. Karaoke started and we sang a few songs. It was a lot of fun! I had kind of expected it to just be Emily and me, so the fact that four other people showed up was really nice. It was a late night though, as the baseball game was really long, and Julian and Nicki were waiting to sing a duet. But it was a nice birthday. Way better than last year when I sat at home by myself and watched Music and Lyrics because the Indians had an off-day.

Ellen has taken to saying that she was left unattended in her crib a lot when she was a baby. It seems like whenever we tell a story about something from many years ago, we know that Ellen had been born at the time, but we don't remember where she was. So she just assumes she was unattended in her crib.

How adorable is Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) playing a guitar and singing?

I just keep picturing the little boy saying things like, "Think my name's funny do you? I've no need to ask yours. Red hair and a hand-me-down robe. You must be a Weasley."
