Now I'm 30

Last Thursday i turned thirty! It seems crazy, i know it doesn't actually change anything but it feels like i just finished school yesterday. I remember (e:mike,58043) 's 30th 8 years ago and it seemed so far away.

To celebrate, and since my sisters' partners both also turned 30 within weeks of me, my parents rented a house down in Pennsylvania near Allegheny. It was a fun weekend of games, pizzas and watching (e:Paul) learn how to unicycle.

Then last Thursday we went over to my parents to celebrate with my Aunt Shirley who i share a birthday with.

All in all a great birthday. Can't ask for better guys and family.

Cookie cheer

Since I didn't go over to my parents for the usual cookie decorating shenanigans (e:terry) and I went on a baking bonanza and made a shitton of cookies to deliver.

We baked:
  • Double batch of oatmeal scotches
  • Choco-chip, heavy on the dark brown sugar
  • Shortbread thumbprints with raspberry jam from my mom's coworker
  • Snickersdoodles
  • Rumballs

Turns out despite meticulous planning with recipe and plate distributions in a google sheet, we ended up with 10 plates worth instead of 6.

New mattress

I can't believe after not posting for so long and everything that happened this is what I am posting but gotta start somewhere. We finally bought a new mattress, after years of researching while sleeping on the saggy pokey old one. I think I did a good job sifting out the marketing bullshit, and settled on a natural latex one. The outside is wool and cotton so there's no flame retardants. In theory it's compostable?

But it's very quiet and I can sleep again.
