[cricket, cricket] [30 Nov 2006|11:04am]
Yesterday was my 30th birthday.

I'm not looking forward to the gradual deterioration of my body,
but I AM looking forward to technological progress. When I think of how many world-changing inventions there have been in just the last 30 years-- the internet, cellphones, Paris Hilton-- it boggles the mind. Who knows what they'll come up with next?

For my birthday, my brother got me a little electronic doo-dad that makes cricket noises. I've always wanted one! It's perfect for hilariously punctuating any awkward silences that occur in conversation. We recently threw a dinner party, and throughout the evening I kept making outre statements just so I could use it. "So, the Nazis weren't ALL bad... [cricket cricket]" It was a big hit, although some people are already muttering that it needs to be taken away from me. (My laser pointer was long ago confiscated after I repeatedly failed to demonstrate that I could behave like an adult.)
