Since most years' birthday plans seem to fall through the cracks, this year I decided to try and more or less ignore it. That seemed to work. Only two people remembered, both of which I was pleasantly surprised about. Mom gave me a nice little sound system, and H sent a card. Dad was being his usual pain until Mom told him it was my birthday. By that time I was upset enough that I had one comment about his actions earlier in the day when, at Mom's prompting, he wished me a happy b.day. Although he was nice to me the rest of the day.
About all I did special yesterday was call H and then go see the Matrix. Both were very enjoyable experiences.
As per dizzdvl's suggestion I think I will see if I can get my hands on a copy of the animatrix. It shouldn't be too hard, they've been selling it at my new job.
