Catching Up

My Aunt Jen sent me a message today that deserves to be quoted (with some grammar and spell checking applied):

Have a lovely birthday, it’s mad how you’re catching up with me, only a year between us now !!!!

Apparently we are aging on different calendars or something.  As I draw closer to 30, Jen seems to stay rooted at 29, perhaps she switched to the hex system I proposed previously.  In any case, cross off one more year for me – I am off to try something new to mark the day, Ethiopian food at Meskerem in Adams Morgan.

Drinks-wise, for those that don’t already know (probably due to my poor memory for e-mail addresses), Joe and I will be jointly celebrating our birthdays (he’s March 26th) on Saturday in Ragtime – feel free to attend if you are in the neighbourhood :)
