    More fortune cookies…

    We had lunch ordered in from Kung Pao Kitty today.

    I didn’t eat all my food (leftovers!) so I decided to eat 3 cookies instead.

    Here they are:

  • You are a true friend.
  • You will soon bring joy to someone.
  • Health and happiness are in your destiny.
  • No more fortune cookies for a while. They’re too sweet. But I like the crunchy noise they make in my head when I chew.

    Celebration!

    My last paper (for this semester) is done and into FedEx before the 6pm deadline!

    Woot woot for the Joz is on Spring Break Express!

    Boy, I ate a lot of fortune cookies…

    …and left the fortunes sitting around my desk…

    Here are some of them (I’ll omit the “lucky numbers”)

  • You will win success in whatever you adopt.
  • You will receive some prestigious prize or award.
  • Treat yourself to something of quality.
  • A letter of great importance may reach you any day now.
  • Soon, a visitor shall delight you.
  • You’re interested in higher education whether material or spiritual.
  • You are guided by silent love and friendship around you.
  • Note: I did not eat these all at once. This is probably several months worth of fortunes.

    Today is my brother’s birthday

    Since my brother’s birthday is the day after Dad’s they have always celebrated their birthdays, except for this year, of course.

    We miss Dad so much and I know I’ve been having a particularly tough time over the last few weeks as the date inched closer.

    I know it’s really hard for my brother, too. He was never much of a “birthday” guy, but I know that he can’t help but to think about Dad when his birthday comes around.

    Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, to my favorite (ok, only… but still my favorite) bro. I love you lots and we’ll celebrate some time when we’re not all so blue.

    Just one year ago.

    Dad & Joz

    The above photo was taken on April 2, 2006, on my Dad’s 61st birthday.

    Happy birthday, Dad. I wish you were here so we could celebrate it together.
