Happy birthday to me!

So, yesterday was my birthday, and we had LOADS of fun. Went to ARMA. Byron clipped me right between the eyes, so now it looks like I'm opening my third eye. Not too bad but it looks funny. We went to Tucanos for dinner (I'm in their birthday club, so I get a free dinner there in March) with Kris and Byron, and the waiters sung the song and embarrassed me, but I got ice cream. I ate too much. We had a birthday pie (I didn't want a cake, I wanted pie!) but we didn't eat any until this morning because we were all stuffed. I got lots of comic books, and the DVD of Howl's Moving Castle. A most excellent birthday. But Elspeth decided she was NOT sleeping in the crib so we got to stay up until three in the morning trying to settle her. Urgh. With any luck at all we won't have a repeat of that. Heck, she's sleeping NOW, maybe she'll stay that way. I can handle it if she gets up early if she'd just go to bed at a decent hour!

Ok ok, so I forgot the actual UPDATE part...

Also, I'm too lazy to deal with the html to edit the post from Flickr, so there. Anyway, I seem to be Boris's right hand proofer now...he gives me four or five jobs most days, which at twelve dollars an hour isn't too shabby. Also, he's a lot nicer to me now that I'm doing work that is useful to him instead of creating more work for him. Go figure. I had another job, translating interviews from a business journal, but apparently I made a lot of mistakes (although I don't know what she's talking about) so I got the boot. Now I have to make her pay me for what I already did. Smells fishy to me, frankly, but I learned my lesson both about all-nighters (read: source of any errors there might have been) and getting things in writing. I also have a job editing translations for...a video game! Don't ask me what it is because all I'm allowed to say is it's an adventure/RPG for the PSII. When it comes out I will tell you, so no badgering. Just pray that my translators start sending me stuff SOON or I'm screwed on my deadline. Pray HARD. Remember what I said about my lesson re: all-nighters. Urgh.

I got the pictures developped. I uploaded many pictures. You can tell I'm the one who takes all the pictures, as most of these are just Elspeth doing something I thought was cute. You can really tell she's our firstborn, we take pictures of EVERYTHING. She is a very well documented baby. Also, her hair is turning blond so it looks like she's balding. But she's not! She has lots of hair! Argh!
