it's my birfday

Yesterday was my birthday. The celebratory birthday week has been excellent. Excellent night of wine, dinner, and board games with a few friends on Monday. Great presents, including Salt Lick BBQ shipped from Texas (thanks, sis!) and the "Mr. T In Your Pocket" voiceclip keychain (It's My Real Voice, Fool!) from Allison. BBQ arrived today. Mmmmm. It says it needs a few days in the fridge to thaw. Don't see that happening.

To top it all off we're headed to Brown this weekend for 10th Reunion. Should be a blast.

Backpack

I've been really enjoying using this new web service -- Backpack -- to get myself organized. Today they announced a nice little REST API. Hmm...

my new wheels

A week ago last Friday, I got a scooter. It rocks.

XOOTR MG

It's the Xooter MG (pronounced "zootur emgee"). I love it, I've ridden it to work and back home several times. It's a lot of fun and better exercise than sitting on the subway.

The first morning out, though, I learned an important lessen about crosswalks and curb cuts, when I got to meet a sidewalk up close and personal. Luckily, my injuries were minor and did not require medical attention. After that, I got a helmet. It's a Bell helmet and it kind of matches the xootr, so I don't feel that dorky.

So, what should I name my little xootr? Some ideas: Professor X, Xippy, Spot, ... help me out here!

(Man, I'd hate to see a time traveller's calendar. Talk about confusing...)
