Happy Birthday, Derek!

It's a big day in the FlickPicking household, as my partner turns 32. (What do you mean you can't make that out?) Thank goodness we've been to so many weddings lately, since in addition to all the happiness we felt on those occasions, we also managed to scrub ourselves up a little and have some nice photos taken. This is hard to do in the grad-student world, and maybe even in the academic world in general, so enjoy these, hot off the press. On the left are the two of us at Bill & Betsy's wedding this past weekend; on the right is Derek at ModFab's wedding two weekends ago.

Happy birthday, [[nice try!!]]!!!! (Pet names deleted to protect the innocent and to spare the easily disgusted.) It's been a hard week to feel joyful, but a good one for reminding us of our various good fortunes. I sure am a lucky son of a gun.

SO MANY happy birthday wishes are now roiling and boiling about here in sunny Gambier. Are those new glasses, by the way? They look slightly different, but I will feel like a big dummy if they're actually the same.

Enjoy your night out on the town, lovelies.

It's too bad we didn't get before and after shots . . . of Derek's feet! They are newly pedicured and also, I'll just go ahead and say it, hot. That's right. Derek has hot feet.

so I really *am* a big dummy. but I swear those glasses look smaller than I remember them--which is just a sign that a certain couple of people need to be making a trip to ohio in their leisure time, eh?
