Hit my snooze alarm for the 27th time

Well, not exactly, but I did sleep in a bit more than usual today. It is, after all, the 20th anniversary of my 7th birthday, as my uncle Tony put it. And as such, I thought I'd post a photo he sent me of said birthday:

That's me on the left and my gramma on the right, and I believe we are in my grandparents' house back in Waite Park. And thanks to the magic of Photoshop and the ingenuity of Tony, well...just count the candles. :)

Nothing cool really happens when you hit the big two-seven, but it does give me a certain satisfaction knowing my age is the same as Weird Al's favorite number. Plans for the day include sleeping in (check), pizza, a movie, a walk (check), some Nintendo (my wife's parents got me 2,000 Wii points, half of which I used to snag Super Mario 64), some Star Trek (check), and general lounging around as well. Not bad for a birfday, I say. It was my friend Nick's birthday yesterday, so Nick, if you read this, I hope the show went well and I'm pretty excited for the new record.
