It's our Argentinian friend's birthday today, as well as mine. I've never been to Argentina, but it sounds nice. There's tango, and Boca Juniors, and four species of penguins. Juan Martin Del Potro is also from Argentina (and I believe he's a favorite of AV's), but he is sidelined with a wrist injury and is therefore not defending his title in the US Open.
Good things about being born this time of year? Watching tennis (IT'S A YOUTUBE LINK!) and that all the bars in the Mission are free of Burning Man types.
Bad things? All your friends are out of town (at Burning Man) so you can never have much of a party.
