Shut Up and Eat!

Birthday Cake
via Ben Ackerman

Benjamin, Catherine, Tyson and Emma were so generous to take me to a birthday dinner at Damon’s Steakhouse in Glendale on Saturday. After dinner where Emma commanded me to draw everyone she knew with crayons, we went back to their homestead for cake, Scrabble, Archer and avant-garde music. Emma and I did a duet of “Old McDonald” while I interspersed bits of Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl” here and there.

By the way, the cake is a lovely chocolate raspberry cake with white chocolate shavings on top.

Today I spent the morning watching my Pirates beat the Cubbies 1-0 with a walkoff homer by Neil Walker in the bottom of the 10th. All of this instead of being active. But that’s fine. I do like the start of a baseball season, and I’m glad that I have an subscription. And now that I have a Roku, I can actually watch these game on the TEEvee rather than my lappy.
