Catholicism – Feast day of the following saints:

On the other hand, Lee's birthday is the 18th and is usually celebrated that Monday. MLK's too, even though his is like a week or so later. Those holidays end up either on my birthday or at least on that three-day weekend, which is kind of nice.

  • 10:43:15: Dammit. No matter how hard I try, I can't get the Nirvana Rickroll mashup tune unstuck from out of my head. http://urX.in/EZ
  • 10:44:47: Oh, wow. I just noticed that roughly a third of my Twitter followers left over the past day or two. I guess I should feel bad or something?
  • 10:46:26: Meh, got better things to do than measure myself by someone elses yardstick. Never understood why people need that outside validation anyway
  • 12:01:38: Wishing I was at Comic-con. But I'll admit, all these pics of sexy cosplayers are helping to ease the pain quite a bit. Keep 'em coming.
  • 17:14:56: Hanging out with the parents, eating steak and watching movies. Not a bad weekend at all so far.
