Programming Note

This Sunday is my 40th birthday (yay!), and I am celebrating it by spending the weekend with a whole lot of the people I love most in the world. Tomorrow, Deeky will arrive, beginning the delightful descent onto Shakes Manor. So I am taking tomorrow, Friday, and Monday off, and I will see you back here on Tuesday.

Because this is also graduation weekend in a lot of places, as well as Mothers' Day, and some of the mods are able to spend my birthday with me, we're not going to have daily open threads. I'll leave the Virtual Pub (which I'll post shortly) open through Tuesday morning, so there's a place to chat.

I feel like I should write something profound about turning 40, but I have exactly zero profound thoughts about it. I have no anxiety at all about turning 40, and I am quite content to begin a new decade. Bring it on!
