Tale of the tape

There are a couple of numbers I found interesting today. The first was the temperature when I was on my way to work at about 6:15 or so this morning.

Yes, folks, that says 63 degrees (and I was traveling more or less Northeast at the time). Today is January 5. I live in the northern hemisphere. The forecast high was 68. It was nice, but my crocuses are up already, and it's a little too early for that.

Now, why would the weather on this day be of interest to me, you may be (or probably not) asking yourself? Well, today is my birthday. Yup, it is lucky number

And, I got an awesome pen and a business card holder from Li'l Stupid Girl. She also picked out for me the awesomest birthday card. The poem reads:

A Poem for Your Birthday "All About Farts"

A fart can be quiet,
a fart can be loud,
some leave a powerful, poisonous cloud...

A fart can be short,
or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known
to sound just like a song...

A fat can create
a most curious medley,
A fat can be harmless
or silent, but deadly...

A fart might not smell,
while others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
or linger awhile...

A fart can occur
in a number of places,
And leave everyone with strange looks
on their faces...

From wide-open prairie,
to small elevators,
A fart will find all of us sooner or later...

But not all farts are bad,
this is simply not true--
We mustn't forget...

Dear, sweet, old farts like YOU!

I am the proudest mom who ever walked the planet!

From my darling husband, I received a mini SD card for my mp3 player, as well as

CSN Greatest Hits


Neil Young's Greatest Hits.

It's a great day, and I hope everybody celebrates!
