today was a good day

Despite dreary weather that wouldn’t finally just give up and rain and a hangover from too much mead last night, today was a good birthday. My cheap sword arrived on schedule, and I’m impressed with what I got for $20. I’m reading John Ringo’s latest book tonight, having finished “A Cook’s Tour” by Anthony Bourdain last night. I liked it better than “Kitchen Confidential”, his first work.

Oh yeah, many thanks to Tony for the $10 iTunes gift certificate, which provided new music for me to listen to while I’m reading.
