So, today is my birthday. And a federal holiday. Coincidence? Yeah. But I am glad to be getting a new president for my birthday (it won’t arrive until tomorrow) and to have the day off. Today was marked (so far) by a hike up Mt. Sanitas in short sleeves, and will be marked soon by lunch at Sushi Tora, the best sushi place in town, if you ask me, though Sushi Zanmai puts up stiff competition.

As a final thought, I want to make clear how much I love the writing of Lore Sjöberg.
