Birthday wish

Yes, I am getting dumber. I neither have the time nor patience to read novels anymore. I have been holding on to "Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K Dick for about a month and a half and I have finished reading maybe half the book. This book is awesome and was the inspiration for Bladerunner(the game changing awesome sci-fi(I love sci-fi(sci-fi rocks)) movie). Clearly I have been writing too much MATLAB(I love MATLAB(MATLAB rocks)) code. Now, I just want to laugh at some silly things and ponder about why my closest companion is the computer and not some silly girl who wants me to listen to her whine about how hard her day was.
