Controversy!

I like this t-shirt. I like Buffalo, too, but realize it's as much for the flaws as the good things. I'd buy it but the shirt needs a different typeface or at least a bit of kerning.

Thanks Everyone!

I had a really, really good time at my birthday dinner. I appreciate you all so much, and hope you had a good time too. It meant a lot to me that you all come out and that everyone seemed to have fun.

^_^

This is my last quitting smoking post.

So, I more or less quit smoking about 12 days ago, except not really, I still had one in the morning and one at night. No longer. I'm going down to zero.

To throw my hat over the wall, I'm going to vow on the memory of my mother that I'm done. Mom, I promise that I am done smoking. This is it for me.

Hopefully I don't fuck it up, I'll feel super guilty after failing since I'm promising it this way.

Dinner Tonight

If you're coming to my birthday dinner tonight (details in previous post), just a warning that apparently they only take cash.

Let me know if that's a problem and we can work something out!

Their menu is here, by the way:

See you tonight!

Saturday?

Does anyone want to do anything tomorrow afternoon? I'm on my own while James is engaging in political machinations.

Watchmen is showing at Noon, which I haven't seen, but pretty much everyone else has. Or I'm up for lunch or pretty much anything other then sitting home on my birthday :)

Birthday Party!

My 30th birthday party is on Tuesday, April 7th at 7:30pm. We've reserved all of Europa Bistro ( map ) - you can come for dinner or just drinks, but all are welcome. Just give me or (e:James) a heads up if you're planning on coming, so we can make sure we've got a good count.

Hope to see you there :)

Home Ownership!

So, my Dad has let me know that there's a 401k account of my mother's that he hasn't cashed in since she passed away a few years ago, and he's decided he wants to use it to help me with a down payment for a house. That coupled with the $8000 first time home buyer's credit ( ) means that I am pretty sure that I'm going to own my own place sometime this year.

James and I have talked, and the only downside is that we'd only buy something if we knew exactly where we were planning on living next year, and we've been talking pretty seriously about moving to Portland, Oregon or Austin, Texas.

Money certainly doesn't go as far outside Buffalo. For the price of a 2,000 sqft Victorian home here we could only get a really cute 1 bedroom condo in downtown Portland, like this:

Of course it would be in the middle of an awesome urban area that only gets 2" of snow every winter and has excellent public transit and career opportunities...
