If I had cat pics, I'd emulate
Donna's b-day entry. But I don't. So here's this.
It's the closest I have: a cat pose from 1974 (or '75?). And because I'm too busy today
to put together anything that compares to the
self-celebratory 5/5 entries, it'll do. Probably didn't have a clue back when the photo was taken
(judging by my expression) that I'd be spending the better part of my
thirty-second wishing for six pages of decent writing for a seminar
paper. Well, okay, and wishing, too, for an iPod accessory. Oh, yes,
and dinner followed by MI3 later on.

Ah!! Sorry to hear you have to finish a seminar paper on your birthday, fellow 5/5-er.
Not to worry, Donna. I just fulfilled my wish of six decent pages (or is that descent). Either way, I can get dinner and a movie now without the anxiety of an unmet writing goal weighing on me.
Happy Birthday, fellow-almost-done-er. have fun!
What a cute baby you were! I too will be at MI3 this evening. As for the writing, c'mon D, you know you will get it down. You never cease to amaze me. :) Happy B'day (again!)
Happy fifth of fifth! Hope you get away from your paper and celebrate!
Thanks! I managed to break away from the paper-sweating late in the afternoon and take in MI3, which was both action packed and entertaining.
Happy birthday late! I knew our ages were close, but I didn’t realize they were that close.
Happy birthday, Derek. For your gift, you can take your pick of any six pages of academic writing I have on my hard drive. If your transitions are clever enough, I'm sure you could make it work.
Yeah, K., when in doubt, we probably have it in common. That's the pattern, anyway. ;)
And thanks, Lance, for the offer. I'm relieved to say that I'm down to the last two pages of "Project X: The Last Seminar Paper" (how's that for a title? catchy?). Two days of spiffing and clarifying, and it'll be ready to turn over to the dropbox.
