Birthday Begins

I had the first of my five days of birthday celebrations last night. I'm turning 32.

mrissa and timprov and I went up to Rock Bottom, and I had the beer sampler. I couldn't finish the pint I ordered, though--- more alcohol than I'm used to having in one sitting. Most of the "special" beers were just strange. (Coconut milk stout? What's up with that?) Unfortunately my father-in-law was stuck on a plane trying to get around the storm, so my in-laws were not able to come with as planned.

This weekeend Marissa and I are visiting Milwaukee to spend some time with my parents.

I opened my presents despite not yet having reached my actual birth date (the 27th), which is a major concession on my part. :) There are Rules about such things. I got many lovely books, such as the new C. J. Cherryh, a Charles Sheffield short story collection, a "Jack of Fables" collection, and an "Ozy and Millie" collection. I have also been promised a beer shopping expedition at Surdyk's.
