I did think the new Family Guy and American Dad episodes were good, although I have to wonder just how many hitherto unknown details of Peter's background they're going to introduce. And since the plot started at Veterans' Day and ended after Cinco de Mayo, it must have spanned a pretty long amount of time. I wonder if that was conscious on the writers' part.
Anyway, getting off the subject of television for a little while, I turned thirty yesterday. I have kind of mixed feelings about that. On the one hand, there seems to be an impression that people have to Grow Up after leaving their twenties, and I'm not sure I'm ready for that. Twenty-nine always struck me as such an awkward, transitional age, though, and thirty is a nice round number, so that's cool. Since I had work yesterday, there wasn't much time to celebrate, but I did get a few presents. bethje's mom and uncle Harry gave me what turned out to be the same shirt. Her Uncle John gave me the Game Boy version of Final Fantasy IV. I got gift certificates from my dad and Dorothea, and a Futurama T-shirt and Gertrude Hawk milk chocolate and caramel smidgens from Beth herself. She says she bought some other presents for me as well, but they haven't arrived yet. I'm probably going to use some of my gift certificate money to buy the upcoming direct-to-DVD Futurama release, and I'm also thinking I might want to get my own digital camera.
