I forgot to write this on the proper day, and Liza is at work so she can’t edit it for me. Expect a typo or two. — Alex Yesterday was my sixth anniversary of not drinking.

My birthday celebration plans center around reading on the back porch with my spouse as soon as she returns from Maine, so I am a little bit annoyed to be writing a second post today about turning 33 . But I did want to mark a few things for my future self, and as this is essentially my personal blog, well, let’s get it over with.
