Birthday, Birthday, Coming To Earth Day!

...Pink and wrinkled and small!

Well, my 20th birthday is coming in just 2 short weeks and I am excited. Soon I will leave behind the disparaging label of "teenager" and be one year closer to being considered a full fledged adult.

Many people have been asking me, 'Ezra, what do you want for your birthday?' and I have not been able to give satisfactory answers. I've been thinking it over and I've tried to come up with some answers that will fit everyone's budget.

Of course, I don't want anyone to feel obligated to buy me a gift, but I'd prefer gifts to money because money ends up getting spent on groceries or gas... and I have my own cash to spend on that stuff. And if you don't want to buy me anything, just send me a card! I love hearing from people!

I will add more to this list as I think of it.

Expensive ($100 or greater)
MacBookPro with Final Cut Pro
Glidecam 2000

Moderate ($20-$100)
Aqua Teen Hunger Force Seasons 1-4 on DVD
Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus on DVD
The Complete Calvin and Hobbes
Wireless Keyboard (Black and Silver) (Something like this.)

I got a $50 gift card from North Face for getting employee of the month!

I felt really good--whenever someone really recognizes your hard work like that, you feel fantastic inside.

I've got the day off today, so I'm probably going to go run errands and whatnot. Have a good one.

Independence Day

Well, It's July 4th, the day that we signed the Declaration of Independence.

Today, 230 years later, we sometimes forget that making the choice to break away from the mother country was not an easy one to make. Many many people felt that a country had to be founded on peace and diplomacy, but others knew that King George would only understand one thing--force.

How did those people, so torn on the issue, make that decision?

In today's political climate, it seems impossible that anyone could create enough support on any issue, let alone one that would affect every American in a deep and profound way.

So for all intents and purposes, this country never should have been foudned. Only by the the grace of God and the courage of those members of the continental congress was our nation ever conceived.

And for all its flaws, I still thank God that it was.

Happy Fouth.
