So nice.

Nicola is so sweet:) I have been spending my birthday in my grand style of doing nothing. I didn't go into my office at the university. I didn't crack a book. I didn't shave. I didn't cook. I didn't do any housework. Nothing. It's my favorite way to spend my birthday. More coffee and the movie I always watch on my birthday, Amelie, later. Going out and getting drunk or getting into bed with a stranger are never ways that have occured to me of spending one's birthday. But to each hers or his own. I'm sure I'm guilty of cultivating the laziest birthdays on the planet.

This is just a random all-encompassing comment for all the blogging I've missed:) Happy Birthday to you... and no wonder you rock: it all must be the Goucher/B-more connection. Baltimore is definitely a great town... grew up there... did the Goucher thing myself. And still terrorize my parents by visiting far too often....

and you're obviously entitled to laziness on your birthday. even the pursuit of the phD can be suspended for that.

So, anyway, Happy Birthday from a Virgo Rabbit to a Virgo Sheep. Also, my sincere apologies for assuming that picture of your brother and sister-in-law was a picture of you. I obviously hadn't read your description. Whoops.
