Dear readers, it is my birthday. I turn twenty-one today, which normally means lots of boozing and barhopping, but let’s face it: I’m a boring fellow, and I’d much rather be conscious enough to attend the Friday classes that I’m taking out loans for than indulge in a night of drunken revelry.

I will, however, be on the look-out for fun atheist-y, science-y, skeptic-y, alcohol-related stories on which I can post, so if you see any, please send them my way.

While we’re at it, my birthday (October 11th) is also National Coming Out Day, and as my college has a VERY involved and VERY active GLBT organization, I imagine there will be all sorts of excellent festivities tomorrow celebrating the experience of coming out. Add to that the fact that we’re going to have an on-campus farmers’ market tomorrow, and I guess the only conclusion to be reached is that one can never have too many fresh fruits.
