I’m not really a big birthday person, but hey, CAKE FOR BREAKFAST! The Swiss Bakery, our awesome local bakery, makes amazing cakes, and sells them BY THE SLICE. Perfect, cause try as I might, no way I’m finishing an entire 8″ chocolate mousse cake. And free birthday coffee from Starbucks!
I’ve also decided that time is a capitalist construct. Supposedly, I am 49 years old. I don’t believe it.
This time last year, my brother & I went for a fancypants dinner at Trattorio Villagio – the last restaurant meal we had before everything went to hell with the pandemic. This year, it’s gonna be Outback takeaway, cause I just really want steak and a baked potato, and they do that very well.
Checked my work email this morning and had a very sweet birthday message from my team on the other side of the world – I don’t even know how they knew.
On the bug front, I am feeling very vindicated, as the dev looked at my results and has now asked the dedicated performance testing team if they’re gonna take a swing at this specific special version. Don’t get me wrong, I do not enjoy throwing a wrench into the works, but it does seem to be in my job description.
My other big plans for my time off are to run over to the H-Mart and see if they have little sauce dishes, cause Lily needs a better solution for her dry treats, and then the garden center for some seeds. Probably tomorrow, though, cause it’s grey and rainy today and I’m feeling very lazy and comfy here on the couch. (Upside: It is *mild* and feels rather spring-like out there, which is excellent!) Tomorrow, sunny!
You have a great day. Have some cake, even if it isn’t your birthday.
