Today is Alex's birthday. I promised I wouldn't reveal his age or put up an embarrassing picture from his childhood.
Alex has been out of commission for about a week due to a dead computer. When he ran off to France, we warned him that his decrepit old laptop was going to poop out on him, but it was all that he had. The poor guy had to wait five minutes just for AIM to start up! Now the briefcase sized monstrosity is dead.
What did Jerame and I give him? A replacement laptop! We know you guys missed him (and so do we) so we made sure he was back up and running ASAP. He called this morning to let us know that it had arrived - on his birthday!
I gave him the day off to celebrate his big day and get the new computer set up as he'd like. He'll be back tomorrow in all his glory, so be sure to leave him birthday wishes so he has something nice to come back to.
