The fun junkies junta came by with a surprize pineapple upside-down cake and lots of birthday bumps for a party at midnight. Thanks guys, it was a lot of fun! :) (Except for those bumps! Ouch)
Mallika kept wishing me happy birthday all day whenever we talked on the phone (and even the day before). :). Vivek, Partha, Ashwin and Subodh called at midnight to wish.
Thanh called at 5 am while she was going to work in NYC (7 am EST). Felt nice to wake up to her voice.
She sent me an iPod - I had gifted her one about two years ago when they first came out. Thanks Thanh, I love it.
Then I went back to sleep. I woke up later in the morning and rushed to get ready. Opened the door and just as I was about to step out, on my door step lied a plate covered with foil and a happy birthday balloon tied to it. Inside were delicious home made brownies. No name. Hmm Secret Admirer. :) Thanks for the brownies and the balloon.
(Later I found out, it was this couple - a guy who goes to the U and we usually ride the bus together, and his wife - they live in the same apartment building as I do).
Later, Sharvari, a good friend of mine here in SLC gifted me an awesome bookmark and a card. Thanks Sharvari. What a blast!
