- MY BIRTHDAY
God I'm 30 can you believe it? Kinda depressing but kinda like so what..don't feel any different.
I thought my sock was just uncomfortably positioned on my commute to work today but then I realized it must be something else. So I took my shoe off when I got to my cubicle and saw there was a rubber band inside my shoe. AH HA! better than finding a bunch of razor blades I suppose.
For my birthday today the word of the day, on a vocabulary calendar a friend at work gave me as a present is:
\'hap-tik\ adj: relating to or based on the sense of touch
Mark could differentiate the various kinds of yarn purely by haptic clues.
I sat for a minute and thought to myself that this wasn't a very good word of the day for my birthday..quite boring in fact. I don't like it at all! Attempting to find a more fitting word I decided to flip randomly to one that would really say something to me. I was looking for a sign, something dramatic, something momentous! I stopped flipping on May 21. The word was:
zwieback \'swe-,bak\ n: a usually sweetened bread enriched with eggs that is backed and then sliced and toasted until dry and crisp
Our favorite cheesecake recipe calls for finely crushed zwieback crumbs for the crust.
