I’m 28 today…

On my post about “particular boats and funicular goats”, Steve properly surmized that it was birthday related. It comes from the groundbreaking Dr. Suess book “Happy Birthday to You”, which I think is Geisel at his best. Long sentences, wonderful rhymes, and a real challenge to read well. Luckily, I have the excuse of having a 9 year-old-daughter, so I can still read Suess.

So, what am I doing to celebrate? I started at 6:30 with a bike ride (35 degrees, but beautifully sunny), then came home, ate, and came in to work. I've just finished my part of a presentation (more on that in another post). This afternoon one of my friends (Hi Nick) is flying in for the MVP summit, and we're heading up to my ski cabin for the weekend.

I'm not sure whether I'm going to buy myself a present yet. I've been thinking about buying myself a Twilight Zone, but I haven't found one I like yet.

Oh, and that's 28 Hex

    Thanks for the mention, and I hope your birthday was an enjoyable one.
