Very important day

July 9, 2009

That’s right. It’s my birthday! Are you excited?

Lieutenant The Honourable George Colthurst St. Barleigh is:

(Blackadder Goes Forth)

I took a furlough day, and I’m planning to have lunch with a couple friends, work on the house, run some errands, maybe have dinner with my parents, and meet the co-workers for drinks after they get the paper out. Wheeee!

Wednesday was my birthday, and as I do most years, I spent it at work. But that’s OK. I got applause when I got there. Sure, it was only because I brought dump cake (which sounds disgusting, but it isn’t) but still, applause. That doesn’t happen very often. And Oh My God you should see the birthday card my friend Jason made for me. He put Hugh Laurie’s face on one of those beefcake cowboy cards, and I giggle and blush every time I think about it. Jason = awesome.

On Tuesday a semi took out the power at work for about an hour and a half. So I called Jeff and got to talk to him for exactly 33 minutes. Then we all hung out on the front steps like preppy hoodlums until the power and our computer system was given the all-clear.

Thursday we finally, finally got our cable & Tivo taken care of. The cable company had taken our digital tier off our service and it only took a week and a half for them to figure out what the problem was. Genius. Too bad I missed both chances to record the movie I wanted to record. Asshats.

So, really not too bad of a week, except for missing that movie.
