On this day, my birthday

Isn’t it a bit goofy to mention your birthday on your blog ? Well, I’ll do it anyway but will also point you to what (other more interesting things) happened on an Aug 29th (via the BBC), and to a list of celebrities and luminaries who were born on that “glorious” date (via Wikipedia):

As for myself, I celebrated this morning at breakfast with the family since I have a dinner with clients tonight. I was greeted with these two wonderful gifts that my kids painted and cooked in special ceramic oven. So precious.

Damn. Thinking about it, I am one step closer to the big 4–0.

Update: Thank you all for your comments, trackbacks, voicemails, emails, IMs, text messages and other forms of “happy b’day” expressions. I really appreciated it.

    Happy birthday! Mine was a few days before, but I’m on the other side of 4-0. Luckily, 50 is the new 40 … Cheers, Tony.
