A very good day

I first saw the light of ... well, maybe not day, but at least fluorescent lamps on the third monday in October of the year 1983. Since then I have seen and done many things, with many more still to come. 25 birthdays have come and passed, but none as magnificently as this year.

Even though I use my cellphone actively, the day of my 25th birthday saw much more use than usual. As did my Facebook wall. As for celebrations, I'd been to stressed out at work to plan anything whatsoever. Luckily my girlfriend had started planning a year in advance, and the result was that ten of my friends gathered at my parent's place to celebrate my birthday with me.

I felt so rich and blessed surrounded by my friends, sitting at a table, drinking and eating and talking together.

A great big thank you to all of you who came, and a great big thank you to everyone who wished me a happy day.

It was, to paraphrase Ol' Blue Eyes, a very good day.
