Happy belated B-day. I just realized I haven't read any blogs in a while. Anyway, some birthday advice. Life will work itself out - don't over-think it. And wear a helmet!

About _

My photo
New York, New York, United States
I take myself too seriously most of the time and I am trying to do that less. I remind some people of Woody Allen. I occationally indulge in the weekend camping trip. I adamantly support the Kansas City Royals baseball club. My identity is wrapped up in a few simple things, most of which are continuously displayed on this here blog.
