As you may all be aware, my birthday is shared by JC on December 25th, thus I get short-shrifted when it comes to presents and presence (No gifts/ no one is available to celebrate.) at my birthday do. So when I was a wee lad from about age 5-10, I celebrated my birthday on September 29th which just happens to be St. Michael's Day. Alas, as I aged and joined high school, my double birthday got shafted and thus so did my annual celebration. (Let's see, I remember having a party on my 25th and 50th birthdays so the next one is due when I'm 75!)
That hasn't stopped me from celebrating all on my little lonesome. En route home, I popped into a GEO to see if there were any new Marvel kuji for me to win. Not much luck at the first one, I got a mug.
The next one I went to, which was fully stocked last week, was completely sold out. So I drove to the one near my home and, taa daa, I won a B prize...a pillow!
Completing today's Iron Man theme, I also received a pouch and a sheet of stickers.
I wasn't aware that the 29th is a holiday in Japan, but it is Meat Day! (2 9 = ni ku which translates as meat.)
So I consumed a bit of steak and hamburger for dindin. I also had a salad to ease the consumption process.
Over at the nearby Mister Donut, their Halloween special is on featuring Snoopy.
Not bad, I ate it in the car so I had no chance to put a birthday candle in it.
Finally, I thought I'd share a picture of the sunset around 5:30 today. two minutes later, this was no longer apocalyptic and was all grey.
