It's Nathan's birthday weekend! I don't plan to work on much of anything besides eating, drinking, and making merry. He has not been too excited about his birthday this year, so I'm taking it upon myself to be excited enough for the both of us. It's a tradition for me to illustrate his presents for birthdays, they are usually a joke about getting old, something to do with pirates or bicycles (two of his favorite things), or a hint at what's inside. However, his presents arrived a little late this year. I only had about 15 minutes between the mail lady dropping them off and him walking up the front steps. I made it just in time but they are a little rushed. I told him they were late and he might not get them in time, so I think the surprise will be nice. Here's hoping we're too busy this weekend for him to read my blog and let the cat out of the bag. And now we're off to the first celebration of the weekend: happy hour Mai Tais at the Conga Lounge in Oakland. Delicious!
