Yep, it was my birthday today. To celebrate, I drove to Terre Haute, where I met Curt, Chris, and Jade for some lunch at Garfield's and a bit of light shopping. I stopped at Waldenbooks with my birthday coupon in hand and bought the fifth and final RahXephon novel (I need to read more than the first few pages of the first one... I can't help it if it's not as easy a read as Slayers), the tenth and final book of Busou Renkin, Lights Out 7 (whose existence is a bit of a surprise to me), Galaxy Angel II 3, and the first books of Rhysmyth and Harukaze Bitter*Bop. I've had my eye on each for a while, but I don't think either of the local bookstores carry Rhysmyth. Oh well. After we got back, Curt took me to O'Charley's for dinner, and I got to talk to jadestar4, whom I've missed so much over the past few days. Add to that a few more stars in Super Mario Galaxy (and the discovery of one whose impossibility makes the ghost mansion one look easy) and a copy of 300 on HD-DVD, plus a few other presents and some checks, including a property tax refund, and it was a pretty good birthday. I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did.
