December 31, 2009 is when I turn 42. That’s a significant age for us second-wave nerds (kids these days… would you believe I encountered recently a kid who called himself a "nerd" but who had no idea what the significant of 42 is?).

Anyway, I wanted a big blow out for my 40th, but I realized it’s probably too late to master the ballroom dancing I wanted to master, and to get everyone geared up in just 2.5 months. So consider this your 2.25 year warning.
