I had a birthday a few weeks ago and it put me into condition of happiness, no two ways about it. I enjoyed the well wishes from friends and appreciated that a bunch of people got together and ate dinner with me.
I remember being very impressed with that book when I read it. I was also 18 years old. I dunno how well it would hold up if older, perhaps wiser me read it now. I do remember wondering at the time why the author was such a self-absorbed douche at the same time as being kind of wise/profound.
Amazon is opening a fulfillment center in Sacramento, bringing a thousand new jobs to the area. So I figure if this whole law thing doesn't work out, maybe I can go work for them slangin' boxes or something.
