Commenceth the birthday week

In keeping with my tradition of late, I hereby declare today to be the start of my birthday week.

I'm not planning anything especially exciting for the week. My birthday is on Wednesday; Mary Anne arrives Thursday; we're heading up to FOGcon in Walnut Creek on Friday; back Sunday.

If you'd like to do something to celebrate my birthday week, here's what I recommend:

Do something nice for someone, sometime this week.

It could be something small or something big. It could be for someone you've never met, or for someone you care about, or even for someone you don't like. (It could even be for yourself.) For that matter, it could be for the world, for the environment, or for humanity in general or some subgroup thereof.

After you've done it, feel free to tell me about it, as a comment on this entry (or this entry's equivalent on Facebook) or in email or via whatever other medium you like. But it counts even if you don't tell me about it.
