Hippo Birdies

Yep, today's my birthday. It was a fairly uneventful day. I didn't get my birthday lunch today... because I got it YESTERDAY, courtesy of my boss, who, knowing that he had a meeting today and might not get back to town in time to take me for lunch, decided that we should do it yesterday. I'm good with that. In the end, he never did get to the jobsite today, so I'm glad we did it yesterday! I had about a hundred posts on my wall and private messages, emails, texts and phone calls, which always makes a girl feel loved! Tonight I had dinner with my clan at Razzoo's. It's not my favorite place, but they've got half price appetizers and we can all eat fairly reasonably. There were 4 of us celebrating birthdays, so there was plenty of dessert to go around, since we all take a bite and pass the plate along, even when there's not a birthday! 
I came home and turned on my computer to discover that Steve Jobs had died. Wow! I firmly believe that without the success of his Apple OS and the platform of windows that it used, making it much more user friendly than DOS, I would not be as computer literate as I am.  I don't use an apple product, other than my ipod, because everything I need a computer to do can be sufficiently and well accomplished in a Windows environment. If I needed more graphic or music kinds of stuff, I would absolutely invest the $ in a macbook or something, but my PC works for me.  

Mr. Jobs, your vision and dedication forever changed the way that the world computes, listens to music, and communicates. You will be missed.
