The Best Thing About Today ...

The best thing about today is not that it's 4/20.
The best thing about today is not that it's the 111th day of the leap year (though that's kind of cool - it would be cooler if it was my one hundred and eleventieth birthday - yes, I'm a nerd).
The best thing about today is definitely not that it's Hitler's birthday.
The best thing about today is not that it's two days before Earth Day.

The best thing about today is that it's my 37th birthday (and George Takei's 75th birthday)! I'm off enjoying the last day of Z's Spring Break with him and getting ready for the read-a-thon tomorrow (snacks are ready!) and hopefully having a generally wonderful day.

Older and wiser,
