Today is my 80th half birthday. I have lived eighty half years, today. In lieu of gifts, please donate to Heifer International. They seem okay. Unless you really really want to send me a gift. Then I would like this.
I spent my eightieth half birthday chasing ducks, mostly. And now, we are watching all of the Star Trek movies, starting with the first: Star Trek, the Motion Picture. I'm pretty sure I have seen them all, but I am getting confused. This is unacceptable. I must see all of the Star Trek movies, in order, and get it all straight in my mind again!
