Had a marvelous time this weekend, with my sisters, relatives, and other good friends visiting to celebrate my 40th birthday (coming on the 26th). So much great conversation, fun board games, and, of course, the food. A terrific way to transition into the next decade; I feel very much surrounded by love tonight. Thanks so much for coming out, everyone -- it was truly splendid. And now I'm going to finish off the night with some leftover curry.
