I was feted with waffles. Waffles!!! My colleagues brought in frozen waffles and toppings and we ate a nice breakfast together. I also had a nice birthday card from them, featuring Justin Bieber.
Then lunch with Jim, who gave me some candy from a shop from his hometown - plus a beer mug with a Preds logo.
Then a long, long drive to Arkansas. We had intended to stop in Memphis for ribs. We didn't get ribs - Rendezvous is closed on Mondays.
Instead, we met one of our customers for sushi and football talk.
Now I'm in my room, coughing and blowing my nose. I'm tired.
I was busy, I celebrated...
And now, I am sleepy.
I'll medicate and call it at a night.
This is 40.
