I’ve been offline quite a bit these days, but I happened to jump on today. I didn’t realize Google does a personalized doodle for you on your birthday. Scared me for a second at first. It even said “Happy birthday, Jen” when my mouse hovered over it!
From the Google blog:
Because doodles are such a fun part of the search experience, we thought we’d share a fun little way Google will help celebrate your birthday. When you include your date of birth on your Google profile, you may notice a special treat on the Google homepage on your birthday (be sure to sign in). Click on the doodle for another birthday surprise!
Here are some quotes I like about getting old:
- Growing old- better than the alternative: dying young.
- Growing old is not for sissies.
Anyways, this birthday didn’t suck too badly. Nothing bad happened (yet!) as something usually does on or around my birthday.
“Love your neighbor as yourself. (Reference)”
Image info: Forgot to take down this guy’s name. We just chatted a bit while he lit a smoke. Taken somewhere in the Mission. Man, I gotta work on nailing focus. But yay for more orange.
