November, 2007 Archives

Yesterday was my last nn birthday, and if you know what that means then you’re a huge nerd (like me and Em). If my memory serves, that means today is’s 6th birthday. I think my first blog post ever, in typical navel-gazing blog fashion, was a complaint about who forgot to wish me a happy birthday. This year I’m moderately more well-adjusted, so I’m just happy about all the nice emails, myspace comments, calls and text messages I got. Thank you guys!

Here’s the card I got at work today (click for larger version):

(If you can reach way back to middle school math, you’ll remember that nn means I’m 33 = 27. I’m going to try to shoot for 44 (256), but I’ll admit I might not get there)

Birthday Spectacular

Em and I have a thing where we try to make it to October 15th before we turn the heat on. October 15th has been balmy the past couple years, so we’ve pushed it back to November 1st. This year we were perfectly content to pull on the sweaters and do some extra cuddling, so we pushed our deadline back again, this time to November 15th.

So today is the 8th and next week is looking awfully far away, especially when there’s frost on the grass in the mornings. Think we can make it, in our third floor apartment with no insulation? There’s nothing like fighting global warming by freezing your ass off…

Getting chilly

I know this is kind of old, but I just saw it today, and it’s pretty cool:

Yup, that’s Providence’s skyline in the background and the terrible soulless blank wall of Brown’s Life Sciences building. Em’s dad’s company worked on the project, which I would imagine was quite an engineering feat.
