Best Birthday Present(s) I Could Hope For

Best Birthday Present I Could Hope For

Katie busted her ass today to make sure I got the last full Gorillaz vinyl toy set that Kid Robot had. She rocks the house, and rocks it hard.

You can check out a full set of pics on this new Flickr set – the last pictures I’ll be uploading from our old Olympic camera.

The other new birthday present is a slick new digital camera – the really, *really* thin Sony one. That’s from my parents, who also rock the house in equal amounts. I’ll be sure to upload a boatload of better quality pictures from that in the coming weeks.

Now all I need is a good keynote from Steve Jobs on my actual birthday, and everything will be hunky-dory.

WWDC dates just got announced for this year. June 6th-June 10th.

June 6th is my birthday.

I had put in to take May 30th-June 6th off. So had Katie.

That thunking sound? My head, on the desk, over and over again.
