It's my birthday today...
My mom got me a new printer and copier (and I'm buying a scanner, fax machine, and media card reader). Ok, technically, she got me an Amazon.com gift certificate worth about 1/3rd the price of a Canon All-In-One wireless printer/copier/scanner/fax/media-card-reader), but the idea is the same.

I'm going to dine tonight in Elmira with sheherazahde, and she also made a deliciously moist chocolate cake with exceedingly soft and wonderful frosting, of which I had a very small piece. I wouldn't mind having more if there's still some left.

And I have a challenge for kinnerc: Let's say I'm an iPhone user -- not a developer, a user -- who uses the iPhone for web browsing, grafting Wikipedia onto my brain, listening to podcasts, mapping and getting directions, playing games like Sudoku or Labyrinth, and occasionally listening to music. I don't give a rat's tuchus about Flash on my phone. Assuming that I am not fired up by the politics of free software v. Apple, why should my next phone be a Nexus 1 instead of the next generation of iPhone? I.e., after using the Nexus 1 for a couple of weeks, can you make the case for an Android phone using issues of usability and performance, not politics? (And to alleviate the obvious rejoinder... I already know how to get porn on an unjailbroken iPhone so even Job's rationale for getting an Android is not an issue.

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, dear Bu!
Happy Birthday to you!

Hope you have a great birthday!

There is still cake left and I have it. It slide apart in transit (I should just give up on layer cakes when I have to travel) but that should not affect the taste. I will bring it along.

Thank you! However, perhaps "happy birthday, old friend!" may not be the best phrasing.

Huzzah for Buddha's birthday!
