I'm having trouble sleeping so I'm up writing about my day.

So today I turned 36. At first it was a pretty normal day. Eat breakfast, read some homework, do a little blogging, and a little more unpacking. Got into work a little after 10. Came in to find that no one had decorated my desk as some of my coworkers have gotten for their birthdays but that's all right since I don't really like blatant attention to things. The receptionist remembered to say Happy Birthday so that was fine.

So I get to work as usual. Through the day, more birthday wishes show up - in the hallways, in email. One group of people I work with tell me they've called me for a meeting and as part of that quick stop by the office give me a card and flowers. Subtle and nice attention from the people who mean it, that's what really matters to me more than an obvious pointing me out that doesn't really reflect who really knew. I think the people in the office on Facebook seemed to be the main group that figured it out and word spread. Overall, it was a very nice day even though I was very busy!

Kevin showed up just around 6 and for dinner took me to an Italian restaurant in a quaint little part of Glendale called Kenneth Village, named for the street it is on (but I don't know historically if that name comes in turn from someone who might have been of importance there). I really love historical stuff and architecture so this was really fun. Called George's and had really good food. Apparently they deliver to Burbank and Glendale. I'll have to consider maybe doing that once in future.

Got back to the apartment to open my gift from Kevin - a 3 cup Cuisiart I'd expressed interest in some time ago as I'm trying to get back into cooking more. For the size of stuff I make the next level up (7 cups) is just too big so I am hoping this will work and encourage me to cook at home even more!

Now to bed, and to face another day of work. At least we get short summer Fridays.

If it's any consolation, I didn't even know it was your birthday until the day of. The desk decorating seems isolated to certain small groups of people. It sounds like it was pretty good overall, so I'm glad to hear that!
