Thanks, everyone

Maybe I should be a little more personal and comment in all my friends' journals who wished me a happy birthday, but it seems like one slightly longer note is better than just "Thanks" in several places.  I'm feeling both generally down and less connected with the world than usual right now, so even though I don't make a big deal about my birthday in general, I find myself appreciating the birthday wishes.  Thanks to folkmew, birder2, singlemaltsilk, andpuff, exapno, trektone, blur01, and figmo for greetings in their journals, plus braider and khadagan for comments in my journal, and starstraf for an actual paper birthday card (handmade even).  For anyone that cares but isn't on my f-list, Sunday was my regular EFRC work day so I went and cleaned tiger cages on schedule.  Right now, it's the main thing that's giving my life meaning, and I wouldn't want to miss it.  The keepers even made me a birthday cake.  birder2 treated me to my traditional birthday dinner at the best steakhouse in C-U a day early.
