I'm making a habit of spending birthdays out of home, out of Canada. But it's cool. Because I always seem to spend it with my mom. It's late, we have to get to the airport early tomorrow for her flight ... but it's been a great 2 weeks. But hey, we can't in a vacation all the time. Now's the time to focus, to do some work. Many thanks to all the friends, loved ones who've sent the most lovely birthday wishes. Will write more later, but yeah, it's been the best birthday of my 18 years yet.
