The older the violin...

Check out this article for some great tidbits (bits of tid?) regarding superheroes. Some of my favorite information in the article:

- What effect does pink kryptonite have on Superman?

- Photo of the "Interactive 3 Level Batman Hamster House".

In other news, my older sister turned thirty on Saturday. The occasion was celebrated by a large group of friends and family at a Japanese restaurant Saturday night. At some point, Julie's friend Kara supplied one of the waitresses at the function with a cake and a set of candles that, when arranged properly, were supposed to say, "OH NO THE BIG 30". However, the language barrier reared its funny head and Julie was presented with a cake that said, "OH NO 30 THE BIG". She got some really cool gifts, most of which could be separated into the categories of red sox clothing and booze (both of which she enjoys). I chose a slightly different route and gave her a snuggly homemade pillow with the following image that I designed ironed onto a pretty ribbon-trimmed panel on the front:

Also in aging-related news today: Guess who found their first gray hair this morning? Ugh. I'm trying to not let it bother me because I really don't want to let myself care about that kind of stuff.

best gift ever. For real.

I've been dying my hair since I was 17. I don't know if I have gray hairs or not, but rest assured if I did, I'd go all gray, What a rad look!

I've wanted to have a full head of grey hair, which I could wear in a pony tail, since I was 16. Seriously. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth

View getting older as being one step closer tyo retirment and getting to do whatever the hell you want until you die. When I'm an old lady I'm dying my hair pink again.
