Happy birfday, Mr. Pants!
I know just which picture of you I'm going to put in here later on. It's the one of you sitting on the bed in Florence, in your purple stripey shirt, accidentally (sure) flipping me off.
You're in your late 20s now - how does it feel? I'm following you in about a month, so please take notes on whether there's anything I need to know about turning 27.
There are a bunch of kids who walked about 12 miles into town from Del Valle to rally at the capitol building today. They're either celebrating Mr. Pants' birthday (unlikely, I guess) or protesting the immigration bill that has everyone (THANK YOU, Molly Ivins!) in a bit of a tizzy.
Several groups have walked by our office on their way up to the Capitol grounds. Some are definitely moving faster than others - a larger girl almost collapsed in front of our building earlier, but her friends helped her up and gave her some water before I could get outside, and she seemed to recover quickly.
I think this is great! It's about time people, especially young people, really started trying to take a more active role in government. So many of us are so apathetic too much of the time - we should learn from these kids and make our voices heard!
And that's the end of today's cheesetastic entry.
back to work!
One last thing - I'm trying out a notify list! You'll see the messed up box on the right side of your screen - it's the thing that says "Try Our Notify List!" If you would like to help me in this experiment, please stick your email address in the box... but, since I'm not sure how this works, please don't rely on it to tell you when we've actually updated, at least for the time being. I'm workin' on it!
Happy Thursday Birthday!
