1. Forty Two feels good. Also happens to be the number of two of my favorite baseball players. Jackie Robinson and in tribute, Mariano Rivera - The Closer, The Sandman, The Yankee. In good company this year.

2. Buy yourself a birthday present. It took me a long time to agree to this. It always feels good and fuck yeah to celebrating yourself.
