What I most want for my birthday is for Obama to win. I am afraid to say anything about how it looks like he is ahead. Hubris. Linus saying "if" the Great Pumpkin comes (though I guess that is the reverse). I could spend hours looking at the blue states on the various online maps.
Lila got me a chocolate cake from Trader Joe's. I will get to take a day off some time soon since I worked today. My present was a new flat screen monitor to replace the one we had that every so often lost its ability to show the green pixels and would therefore make everything muddy red unless you could smack it just so on the side or top. I think there may be some books in my future too . . .
All in all, I am very happy with my life at 45. :)
