^ Have been confronting more and more the inevitable fact of having to help my parents as they retire and grow old. It's humbling in general. But the possibility of memory loss and dementia--that stuff is simply terrifying.
Alas, haven't done any major celebrations. For a variety of stupid reasons (including: the idea of buying something fancy to celebrate when you could actually just be fired is rather unpleasant). Have had some janky non-vintage stuff, but am still waiting to look around for the good stuff. Maybe over spring break in New York or something.
