Today was my 25th birthday – thanks everyone for your birthday wishes on Twitter, Facebook, and elsewhere! Special thanks to Sharon for making it a birthday to remember!
She made eggnog pancakes for me this morning, and stuck a couple candles in them for me to blow out. We went to the TELUS World of Science in the afternoon to see The Art of the Brick. Definitely made me feel young playing with LEGO! For dinner we went to my favorite Edmonton diner, Route 99. From there it was on to Starbucks, and then to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I really enjoyed it, but at nearly three hours, it’s a bit of a marathon. All in all, a great day!
Here are a few notes for this week:
- Interesting article on text messaging – basically the carriers are making far more money than they should be. And the busiest texting day of the year is coming right up!
- A somewhat funny post at TechCrunch for the holidays: A Silicon Valley Christmas Tale.
- Here are The Buzzwords of 2008 from the New York Times.
- Speaking of 2008 lists, don’t miss the fantastic Lists: 2008 page, compiled annually by Rex Sorgatz.
