Happy B-B-Birthday you Thing From Another World, you!
Mood:  celebratory
Topic: Just Fun

The Evite invitation for yesterday read as follows:

COME ONE COME ALL... BRING YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHERS, and even insignificant ones if you must.

No presents or cards are expected. Your attendence is the gift that keeps on giving (especially if you buy me a drink).

In celebration of the start of my 4th palindrome birthday (think about it), I'm going to be doing an all day and into the night bar and restaurant crawl, and you're invited!

The location listed is the official time and starting point, but there'll be more going on!  You're welcome to show up at ANY portion of it.

11 a.m. pre-party face stuffing at Ti Couz Brittany Creperie at 3108 16th Street (at Valencia).  Yummy crepes...and probably coffee over on Market Street afterwards. Call to see where we are.

OFFICIAL START
2-4 p.m.  Beer and/or other bevs at the Park Chalet (www.beachchalet.com), mere inches (ok hundreds of feet) from the mighty Pacific! 

NOTE the Park Chalet is in the BACK behind the Beach Chalet.

4-6 p.m. Food and  T E Q U I L A (note the emphasis) at the incomparably tequilariffic Tommy's Mexican Restaurant (
www.tommystequila.com), at 5929 Geary Blvd. These are the BEST margaritas you will find for hundreds of miles. Forget those stories you all tell about bad tequila experiences in college...this ain't that shit.

7 p.m. (we'll never make it out of Tommy's on time): Ice cream or other dessertage at Toy Boat Dessert Cafe  (
www.toyboatcafe.com) at 401 Clement St.

If you're showing up after this, CALL to find out where we are!

7:30ish. If more beer is needed, we can stroll over to one of the local bars , all of which actually ARE walking distance!

After that...we WING IT!  Call to find out where we've ended up!

23 people showed up at various points, with the highest number making it for dinner at Tommy's, where 18 attended and 2 showed up just before we left for the final destination.

Thanks to Becky, Matt, Ben, Phoenix, Jim & Becky, Rob & Stephanie, Marcella, Kelly, Colin, Amanda, Russ & Christopher, Don & David, Jack & Nichole, Steve, Amy, Michele, and Deb & Shana for making my (belated) b-day.

You're older than you've ever been.
And now you're even older.
And now you're even older.
And now you're even older.

You're older than you've ever been.
And now you're even older.
And now you're older still.

TIME! Is marching on.
And time.. is still marching on.
This day will soon be at an end and now it's even sooner.
And now it's even sooner.
And now it's even sooner.
This day will soon be at an end and now it's even sooner.
And now it's even sooner.
And now it's sooner still.

You're older than you've ever been.
And now you're even older.
And now you're even older.
And now you're even older.

You're older than you've ever been.
And now you're even older.
And now you're older still.

"Older" by They Might Be Giants

So, yeah, today was my birthday. 44. A palindrome year. Had a lovely dinner with Terry and Carol at Garibaldis.  Mmmmm... lamb!

This weekend will be a bit crazier, what with a roving party planned for the afternoon and evening.

Oops...now I'm even older than when I started typing! And even older than when I started typing this sentance.  Augh!

Freefall
Topic: Just Fun

This is a recent entry from a science fiction based comic strip called "Freefall" that I've been following for a while. It's silly, but there's some interesting "hard" science in it.  Worth a look!

Birds of a Feather Commute Together
Mood:  surprised
Topic: Just Fun

My lengthy morning commute to San Jose is usually a fairly uneventful affair, with most of it along the very pretty drive on Interstate 280 through rolling tree-lined hills and past various reservoirs (reservoii?).

This morning, minutes short of reaching Silicon Valley, I found myself behind slightly slower traffic... a flock of about 10 pigeons were traveling in the right lane of the freeway, roughly at windshield height, and moving with traffic. I slowed down when I saw them in front of me, expecting they would move out of the way as I approached. Nope. They just kept on flappin' down the road. After a few monments I changed lanes and passed them on the left. When I looked into my rearview mirror, there they were, still flying down their lane.

I wonder if they shifted to the HOV lane a few miles ahead. If so, I suspect they didn't signal the lane change...
