Happy Birthday? No such thing.

It is my birthday today. Yippee. And it's also my 300th post. Now that's symetry, baby! It's alllll coming together...

I am not a big fan of birthdays, usually. But something happened this year. I'm still not a huge fan, but I don't mind it as much. I think I am finally coming to terms with getting older. And no matter how old I get, I can still choose to be immature, right?

My favorite statement on birthdays comes from the Seinfeld episode where Jerry is pretending to not be funny in front of George's Chinese lawyer girlfriend at dinner in the episode "The Visa":

Jerry: Well, birthdays are merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we've grown. No matter how desperate we are that someday a better self will emerge, with each flicker of the candles on the cake, we know it's not to be, that for the rest of our sad, wretched pathetic lives, this is who we are to the bitter end. Inevitably, irrevocably; happy birthday? No such thing.

Classic.

I may even take a day off from blogging tomorrow. I was looking back through my archives and it looks like December 27 was the last day I didn't have a post. And a lot of those days since then I've done three or four posts in a day.

That surprised me. I would not have thought I would have had all that much to say.

So I might skip a day. On the other hand...I wonder what the record is...

Have a great weekend everyone! I love all you guys. There is nothing I would like better than to take you all home with me and have a no-holds-barred blogger orgy complete with 10W-40 motor oil and a couple of ring-tailed lemurs but I'm pretty sure it's against the subdivision rules and regs.

Oh well. A boy can dream.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. FABULOUS!!!

Not only have I chosen to remain immature, I have also chosen to let my ass get as wide as a buick too. (Since I hit 35, it's like I don't even have a choice anymore, dammit. ;)

Anyway, take a break....enjoy your birthday...and don't forget those lemurs...'kay? :)

A very Happy Birthday to you Mr. Fabulous! Would love to join you for the lemurs but as you know I fancy goats...

Hey, I'll be passing thru G'ville on my way to and from Wewahitchka next week wanna grab a beer? We can celebrate your non-birthday a little late; I'll bring my own goat, you bring the 10W-40.

Happy Birthiversary! Or something like that!

At 39, I've just decided that my mental age or the age I "feel" will never catch up with my chronological age, and I think that's perfectly fine. I mean, 40 is the new 29, right? Or something.

I hope you have a great day!

I'm a big ole' dingbat! Here I had just done your natal chart, knowing it was your birthday yesterday, and still totally forgot to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Guess I was supposaed to see all these comments first! You are one loved guy, Mr. Fab. And getting older is actually kinda fun. Eventually you get to retire :)

No fuckin' way, Fab. The last time I did anything depraved with you, I got an STD from the lemur, and I swore never again.

Here's birthday wishes, however. Have a good one!

Say it isn't so 'bout lemurs and motor oil being against the regs! I honestly thought I was a law abiding citizen...
Hoping you had as happy a birthday as it is possible to have!! I see I am no. 55, so everything that can possibly be said has already been said no doubt :)
(My computer has been on the blink.)

I'm enjoying a belated birthday drink for you over here in Kiwiland.

I find it more than passingly odd that yours and Alex's birthdays are within 48 hours of each other. And it occurs to me that perhaps this explains his infrequent posting--that he can only post equal to the number of days you don't, or something.

Anyway, sorry I missed it on the day, but WE had Friday off to celebrated Alex's birthday, so were not internetting!

Ok, so you said if you didn't post for a day or more that you'd be dead.. are you dead?
