Birthday THREAD!

Today is my day. I turned 22 and I got a bunch of neat crap. No pictures yet but I got the following

Green iPod mini
Camo Zoic Shorts
Belkin Car adapter

My sister might get me those Oakley mountain biking gloves. That's it so far

those gloves are heinously expensive. Though you aren't paying so what's it really matter. In case you care, I think I've seen that 661 makes a glove with carbon fiber knuckles too, I think they're a bit cheaper because 661 isn't as brand and logo driven.

I have a pair of 661 nasty's. I really liked them but after about 4 months of riding with them, the palms are starting to be really worn and kind of tearing away. Whats awesome about the Oakley gloves, is that they have kevlar so they won't wear nearly as fast as the 661's. PLUS, if my rich sister forks over the cash for them, then rock on! She is already paying for half of my college education. I better become rich so I can pay for her kids when they need something. lol.
