Kind of a neat little coincidence.
Today is my dad's birthday. (Happy birthday, Dad! :) Today also happens to be the birthday of my favorite model. Yeah, I know that's not terribly important, and I also question the wisdom of admitting I have a favorite model...but there it is.
On the note of swans, she tweeted a photo: http://twitter.com/#!/NataSupernova. (Check out her b-day tweet. I have no Twitter account, so I can't link it directly.) You see, swans are symbolic and particularly to Russians. I think it's lovely. (If anyone's wondering, hers is the photo in my "About Me" section. Hey, I never said it was me. I just liked the picture.)
On a slightly unrelated note, I wish "tweet" wasn't a verb.
