today is socrates birthday. no not THE socrates, my socrates. both really cool guys, i just know mine a little better. plus he's not, you know, dead. i called this morning to wish him a happy birthday. i woke him up. oops. i know he went back to sleep. i'm excited. i saw him saturday. and i get to see him again in 17 days. that's when he'll get his birthday present. i still have to figure out what that's going to be. i also need to be smart. i need pictures of him.
