7 x 3 x 2 = 42

You say it's your birthday It's my birthday too--yeah They say it's your birthday We're gonna have a good time I'm glad it's your birthday Happy birthday to you. from "Birthday" by the Beatles
Speaking of the Beatles, "When I'm 64" no longer seems like some kind of distant possibility. [shudder]

Famous people born on the same day as me:
  • 1975 Tobey Maguire (actor)
  • 1930 H Ross Perot (billionaire industrialist, philanthropist)
  • 1927 Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan (tv personality, children's advocate)
  • 1880 Helen Keller (author and educator)

Does it say something about my chronological age vs. my emotional age that the presents I received this year included a Lego B-Wing Fighter, The Incredibles 2 DVD set, and some new series 3 Attacktix figures?

I had a great birthday... Braeden & I played a game of Return of the Heroes (complete with expansion)... which he won by about 2 turns. (For those who understand the game, he defeated the Warlock in his secondary power - magic - since he didn't have the Magic Sword.) We ate lunch at the Doghouse Grill (best tri-tip sandwhich in Fresno!) and had Braun's ice cream for dessert (best local ice cream parlor). And, with the exception of Vacation Bible School tonight, I didn't deal with church stuff all day. And if that isn't enough, tomorrow afternoon Braeden & I are going to see Cars together. Ka-chow!

"A very merry un-birthday to me."

Paul McCartney was 19 when he wrote "64", and he thought it was an unreachable goal. He turned 64 this month. On his birthday, the Classic Rock station here in OKC started at 8 am and finished at 8 pm, playing all the Beatles songs from A-Z. Then they played a detailed interview with Sir Paul, and played music from his solo career and Wings.

Age is inevitable, Maturity is optional. Legos and Incredibles are cool!
