Well, my birthday has come and gone, sort of. The day actually slipped by this past Tuesday. What a shitty day to have a birthday on. Tuesdays are even worse than Mondays. Anyway, it slipped by with out a peep. I planned nothing, I did nothing, and I enjoyed doing nothing. Emma and I had a sleepy night watching movies from bed and snuggling up with some blankets and pillows.
Emma already gave me her present and it is probably the coolest present I have ever gotten. She signed me up for sailing instruction and certification with OCSC Sailing. I think Emma just one the best girlfriend of the year award, thank you very much.
This weekend I will be heading out to Concord to spend some time with my folks and siblings and to celebrate my birthday again. I cannot wait to hang out in the kitchen with my Mom. For years I have been her prep cook/sous chef. We are having lamb shanks, spanakopita, pastitsio, horiatiki salata, garlic bread, beer/wine, and who knows what else. I love to eat.
So there you go.
Oh yes, Greece, the countdown starts today. Well, it should have started yesterday, the 21st. So here we go...
THE MOTHER LAND, GREECE, HERE I COME.
I figured I'd do two to make up for the late start.
