Today is my sister Jen's birthday. This begins the 3 days of the year when she only a year younger than me by number. My parents stopped by today to celebrate my up-coming birthday, since they couldn't be around next week. It's really nice of them. Birthday bounty includes Built to Spill's Keep it Like a Secret, a USB Joystick, an awesome Adidas shirt, and a handmade cheese cutter. I have to say that I was shocked by that last thing, but it's actually kinda neat. It's more of a folk art piece I think. Maybe I'll use it someday, but I admire it none-the-less. dad
