Today is my birthday.
So not a real post, just a quick comment, because I was way too busy eating cake and letting people sing to me and going out to dinner... :-)
This is my fifth birthday in the USA and the first year, I made the mistake that all the new peeps from Germany make. We bring our birthday goodies to work. In Germany, you as the birthday kid are supposed to provide your co-workers with food on your birthday. I have to say, I like the American way much better and that your co-workers make sure, that you have a birthday cake for your big day.
This is a picture from last year. I wasn't fast enough to get a pic from this year's cake.
