Thanks, My Friends! [May. 12th, 2005|11:39 pm]
[Current Mood |complacentcomplacent]

Thank you all for the kind birthday wishes!

I spent the evening with kit_ping and 3catsjackson by going out to a very nice chinese restaurant for dinner. It was wonderful and semi-exotic fare that left all of us full and satisfied. A good meal and friends is the best way to celebrate, I think.

And, just to commemorate my passing another temporal milestone, here's an excerpt that I just managed to locate. It's from the poem "Rooms" by Billy Collins:

And maybe under the fallen wayside leaves
There is hidden a nest of mice,
Each one no bigger than a thumb,
A thumb with closed eyes,
A thumb with whiskers and a tail,
Each one contemplating the sweetness of grass
And the startling brevity of life.

Belated birthday wishes -- and what a charming poem!

Hope you enjoyed yourself. How was the "kind of like fish and mushroom still hot jello", aka shark fin, soup?

It was terrific! I really enjoy a well-prepared shark fin soup. (Enough, occasionally, to overcome the guilt of mistreated sharks.)
