Birthday again

I just realized it was my birthday recently, a wonderful thing. Some time ago I stopped celebrating birhday. It was fun when I was young, but once passed 30, birthday starts feeling much like project approaching deadline, or payment passing due date. I remember once I asked my wife on her birthday, "did I tell you you are ## years old now", and she said "yeah, I try not to think about it". Now it's my turn.

One thing came to my mind as soon as I realized it was birthday is, inevitably, movie Adaptation. In fact it kind of cheers me up. "Today is the first day of the rest of my life", what an inspiration from an old, fat, bald and repulsive Nicholas Cage.
