How I Spent My Birthday 

Went to Boston City Hall to pay the parking ticket I received on the day of the layoff. Since I delayed paying it, it was $53 instead of $40. I had to pay it at City Hall because of what I had to do next.

Went to the Registry of Motor Vehicles and renewed my license. The woman asked if I wanted a new photo, and since the other one is now five years old, I thought what the heck. Yeah, now I know why the heck. I was five years younger in the other picture!!!

Went to a job interview in Needham. I'll let you know if anything comes of it.

Went to an early dinner with The Girl, at a yummy Japanese steak and sushi place. She got the chicken and steak grilled event, with the flashing knives and eggs expertly cracked by being tossed in the air and landing on the edge of a spatula. I threw caution to the wind and got the Fuji Sushi Dinner, which didn't say specifically what it would contain, except that it would be assorted maki and sushi. It was a winner!

Received three lovely gifts from The Girl - a black button down shirt and two books that I had been eying in Provincetown this summer. It had been killing her not to tell me what they were. She's been asking me every day for two weeks if I wanted to open one of my presents.

Then off to class.
