Here's how I celebrated today:
I mentioned briefly in a previous post that at one point I wanted to become a physicist and work for NASA, and how some of that desire was motivated by money. To be fair to myself, though, I did have, and still have, a genuine enthusiasm and curiosity about space, the universe, and the scientific laws and concepts that describe our existence.
Do you remember the TV show Ally McBeal? I watched the whole series while I was in high school. My parents thought I was asleep already, at least, my mom thought I was asleep. I'm pretty sure my dad felt bad that my bedtime was so early and looked the other way most nights. Don't get me started on that whole bedtime thing, either.
