Today's my 24th birthday, yay, I feel old in a college town. :) My twenty-year-old friend just told me I could buy him booze. What an honor.

I'm spending it with friends. It's a good thing. About six people sent me cards already, online cards, which is kinda cool. What's weird is they're all from my family. My mom sent me one, my dad sent me an e-mail apologizing for not being more personal and needing my address so he can sent me money . . . several other absent-minded people promising me a rain check.

I really don't need people to get me stuff. It's enough that they remembered.
