Aww look, Jamie, someone took your advice and it turned out okay! I mean, after the disaster.
And happy birthday to my brother! I feel a little guilty being out of the country and unable to text him a happy birthday wish, but maybe he'll accidentally check the GWS website today. Or maybe I had the foresight to send him a card from Canada, like, a week ago. (But probably not, because I couldn't get a reminder on my iPhone, dammit all.)
