birthday notes

Maybe it's dumb to announce one's loot after a birthday, but I sure am liking the new laptop, a Dell 9300. The 17" screen is way better for music software, at the expense of making the machine absurdly large compared to more portable laptops. But it's still lighter (and faster) than my last laptop. Other birthday scores -- Adidas SS2G New School shell toes, and some Keen Newsport sandles, which are pretty far along the flip-flop to shoe continuum:

Of course the dinner out at The Red Avocado with the family was nice as well. Last night my brother Steve flew his plane in, and will be here a couple of days.
