Birthday Candles.jpgYes, it’s true. On this date, I made my grand entrance (feet first, I have been told – It figures) onto the planet. I’m pretty sure that it must have been around the same time as the invention of the wheel, because I have vague auditory recollections of people all around me saying, “WTF?? What is that?”

I am pleased to say that I share this boitdate with Zonker of Thunder and Roses, the man who is doing his damdest to make the mullet respectable. Happy Boitday, Zonk!

As a Libran, I am in excellent blogger company. That would include, Eric, the Lovely Rita, Pammy, the Amazin’ Denny (on the cusp, anyway), and Silk. According to the people who read the stars and planets, that makes all of us:

Diplomaitic and urbane
Romantic and charming
Easygoing and sociable
Idealistic and peaceable

That sounds just about right.

Last night TJ and Mr. Surly stopped by with wonderful gifties, which consisted of several bottles of top-shelf bourbon. I also received the Complete DVD Set of Black Adder. (Eric turned me on to this when he was in Jersey.) After that, we went out to a local restaurant that specializes in Northern Italian cuisine to stuff our faces. This was followed a return trip home for coffee and TJ’s homemade apple tart and homemade brownies, loaded with Ghirardelli chocolate chips. As I always have said, calories don’t count at a birthday party.

So, what’s up for today – the actual boitday?

Turns out that it is my turn to tend bar at the Post, so I will be pretty busy. The bad news is that I will be doing a fair amount of hustling around. The good news is that The Usual Suspects will be on the case, and they’re sure as shit great peeps to spend one’s boitday wit.
