happy birthday to me:)

I am now 26. (As of yesterday). Being an even number will put things in perspective I'm sure. Both my factors are prime too. 2*13. That's almost as good as being a real prime number.

Look at the lovely gingerbread upside down cake (made by DH!):

Notice there are only 19 candles (we ran out). I was ok turning 19 though. That year was not such a bad year. It is a prime number and everything.
Some of you may think I get too excited about the mathematical relationships of my age. Some of you might think it is nerdy and lame. But when I am 89 (and excited to be 89 because it is a prime number) you will be just plain old 89 with lots of health problems and nothing exciting going on.
So there.

It's always good to look on the bright-mathematical side! :) Happy belated b-day! By the way, thanks for the info on posting more than 4 pictures to a blog page; I'm now a picture-posting fool (see most recent blog entry). :)

About the numbers. For my next birthday I have decided to remain 27. Then the following year I will jump back to correctness for 29. 28 is just too dull a number. But currently I am a cube, and 29 will be a prime. Why celebrate all those silly numbers with no fun in between?

as you know, i am nearing the 26. it's hard to be excited about that number, BUT i thought of something cute today- there are 26 letters in the alphabet!! this is the number that brings numbers and letters together.

enjoy.

Great idea! I guess that means that my birthday was brought to you by the letter Z :)

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
