Celebrating Fermi-ness

I have a love/hate relationship with my birthday. On one hand it is my ultimate favorite day, because it is a day for me: a day I can celebrate my Fermi-ness. I used to dislike my birthday because I got unwanted gifts and attention and that made me feel uncomfortable. Now, I get more presents that I want, and I am overall more at peace with who I am so unwanted attention doesn't bother me nearly as much.

Age is a funny thing because there is our chronological age (25), the age we feel (40), and the age we look (17). Now with modern advancements in interweb technology we can even calculate our Real Age (16.7) at! I guess it is comforting that my real age is 16.7 because strangers generally think that I am an undergrad in college.

Arg. You want some real amusement? Go check out Cajun Boy's blog. Watch the embedded video at this post, and then follow the link at the end of the post and read his analysis.

Happy birthday, Fermi.
WOW -- Guido Beach. I am left speechless.
Who is this Cajun Boy and why is that his blog elicits such a high volume of comments? Color me jealous.

Happy belated birthday, dear! Hope you had a wonderful day :)

I've been mistaken for 12 years younger than I really am! But it's comforting to know that when I'm 40, I'll look 30 :P
