Update: Here's a photo of me around lunchtime today with today's paper and its front page story on today's other big news. Good to see that the New Zealand Herald got the oath right; pity about the Chief Justice… Anyway, we got up at 5:30 am to watch. It's been a very good day! That "50" button came from my sister-in-law and her daughter. Nice, eh?
Update 2: We went out to dinner tonight. Since the big party is on Saturday, we had a low-key night. But it was fun all the same. Nigel took the photo below about 6:30pm or so tonight as we waited for our meals.
I had a very good birthday, especially because I was able to celebrate a new president, too.
As a side note, I woke up with a very red eye (visible in my right eye). I have absolutely no idea what caused it—whether I bumped it, Jake accidentally hit my eye or something else. It doesn't hurt, and it looks far worse than it is. Hopefully it'll be gone by Saturday!
