happy birthday to m!! looks like we'll both have rainy birthdays this year, but we'll be sure to eat well. m's leaning toward indian food for his celebration -- i'll provide a full report later.
in other news, see below for reliable photos from "oliver!" i fixed those vanishing pictures. i showed em who was boss. speaking of "oliver!," it's over now, sadly and happily. after a terrible ticket snafu (the portland players had accidentally sold us tickets to the wrong play!), we were able to watch the final performance, help strike the set, and join in the cast party. boo, m, bean, and artemis even accompanied some especially fun cast members to friendly's afterward.
