Thanks for all the kind Birthday wishes, everybody. I've gotten tons of email and postcards, and had a fine birthday. I don't have time to put up an updated postcard-wall picture. I need to get back to work today. This Bonus Story isn't writing itself. I posted my thoughts on turning Forty over in my Live Journal. This morning my thoughts are the same, only tempered with "I shouldn't have eaten that much sushi last night."
