Yours truly on Friday night (well, actually Saturday morning), at Phil and Stephanie's-hosted joint birthday party, Washington, D.C., 1:09AM, Nov. 21, 2009; This is a red balloon and a NEW (as yet unnamed) PLUSH HIPPO that Stephanie got me that joins my stuffed animal menagerie.
I apologize for the lack of an update, including about my Friday night joint birthday party. Concerning that party, at the present time, I do not have any pictures to post except a few of my crummy cellphone camera ones. Of note, one of my friends got me a nice digital camera but I will not be able to use it for a few days.
More generally, I will probably not be updating this blog until Wed. or so. This is going to be a difficult week for me. I sent an email to the head of the company for which I do my contracting work. This is a follow up to the "we only want to pay you every three to four weeks to 1 month or more, maybe" phone conversation I had on Thursday that so upset me.
However, this is also Thanksgiving holiday week with my actual 40th birthday falling on the holiday, and I have some plans, but not my usual sort.
The picture on the left is the result of yet another culling of my journal -- this time of a particular set of print outs related to my four my blogs (two existing, two deleted) from early April 2007 through about two weeks ago. I am now throwing them out. Good.
P.S. I may be shipping much of my stuff down to Florida to my father's place even as I stay here -- in preparation for any eviction proceedings early next year.
