It’s my geeky birthday!

By Sparky | July 29, 2006

I’m am proud to say that I’m now a year older, a year wiser, and a year closer to becoming immortal :) I’m technically not 25 until Monday, but hell – the celebration starts today.

25 is such an interesting number. It can be expressed as 5^5, marks 25% of a century, marks what many would consider to be true adulthood, and in general is a fun word to say. Go ahead – say it: twenty-five. Say it again, luxuriate on the crisp start and sharp end of twenty. Feel the word five erupt from your mouth, like marching orders barked by a drill sergeant. Don’t you feel better now?

I’ve got a ton of people descending upon my place for food, fun, movies featuring my loving Milla, and perhaps a few noise complaints from my neighbors. Fun times should be had by all. OR ELSE!

Update: As my father has so well pointed out I meant 5×5, not 5^5. Minus 2 geek points for me!

    Happy almost-birthday big brother!! Wish we could be there to celebrate, but I’ll drink a glass of wine tonight in your honor.

    5 to the fifth is 3125, not 25. I believe you meant to indicate 5 squared. Sigh, you send a guy to school all those years… In any case, I’m glad you had a good birthday, and have a great 25th year!!
