Spun!  
Guess what?

Today's the 39th anniversary of my birth!


If my father were alive, he would no doubt point out that my age is now the product of two primes (When I turned 27, he congratulated me on achieving a prime power. He was a mathematician. I miss him.)

My mom left the cold prairies (9°F yesterday morning) to fly south for my birthday. She arrived just before we opened the doors on Spun!: Solar Rotisserie Throwdown 2007. One of my favorite days of the year is my birthday, when I spend the day in the kitchen cooking yummy food for my friends. It's always a joy to watch everyone enjoy the vittles of love. This year, I made barbequed tofu, mashed potatoes, musaman curry, bindi masala, a big plate of grilled veggies and a fresh green herbal salad. Ana made couscous and the most beautiful dish of the evening, the pineapple coconut rice.

Andy made a delicious sweet banana-nut pudding and Alaa made her fabulous tabouleh. Yum!!!

Here's me taking a picture of myself blowing the candles out on a vegan king cake.

It was great to see all the people who came. I love my friends and I can think of no better way to celebrate my life than to be surrounded by them.

If you came to the party, thank you! It was so good to see you! I can't wait for next year!
