i'm way to old for my birthdays to really be special events any more, at this point the only special ones left are when i reach the decade milestones. diana and i didn't plan anything special for my birthday, which i was definitely ok about, but barbara did invite us out for a concert. diana's mom was willing to watch ledger for the night, so we took barbara up on the offer! one of her friends was playing in a punk band in south bend, so we tagged along with her and enjoyed the music and crazy fun of the night. the music was loud, bad, and angry- just the way punk rawk is supposed to be! it was a lot of fun and a great way to spend a birthday- thanks sis!
