Well, either my staff really likes me or they were trying to cleverly poison me using this cool looking cake this morning...
This year I have decided the only thing I really want for my birthday is to turn off my business cell phone, pack a cooler, pack a tent, and drive well away from the city for a camping trip.
It looks like the weather may or may not cooperate with my plan as the NAM, GFS and now the RUC are agreeing on rain for this evening. Aaron Cunningham pointed out that my much anticipated camping trip is the first time this year all three US models have agreed so solidly. That said, there is nothing at all more relaxing than light rain on the side of a tent at night.
It's funny how we all change over the years. When I was a bratty kid it was all about the quantity of gifts and as I grew older it was the quality. Now I want nothing but non-tangible gifts such as the ones that appear on MasterCard commercials as "priceless".
