As the old joke goes…who said it wouldn’t last? Actually, probably my parents and maybe some people I share a mutual dislike of.
Next year will be the bigger shindig. We’ll be celebrating 10 years and returning to the scene of the crime, Las Vegas. I don’t think it will be in the Mirage again, that place is pretty pricey even in the crummy economy. Mark the dates, namely a certain person out east I will cover the travel expenses for, she owes me a wedding and deserves some adult time drinking, cursing and gambling in the R-rated amusement park of America!
This year will be low(er) key. Somara is busy putting things together for my birthday in a couple days. I’m running errands, I’m taking a break to post. Meanwhile, Jose and Nancy are coming to town! He was the Best Man in 2003 so it’s pretty cool to have them hang out. They’re mainly down for my birthday but we can say they’re pulling double duty.
Now on to 10.
Wait, wait, wait. What is the gift for nine? (Searching via Google, it’s not a verb!) Pottery? A trip to Lowe’s? Next. Willow? A tree I guess. Leather? In this weather? Time to check the geek list. Data storage! I could use an external RAID tower from Promise. I don’t need the Thunderbolt Pegasus model, USB 2 or FireWire 800 should be sufficient.
