What a birthday!!

Last night as the evening at El Myr was winding down, la_poubelle turned to me and said, "You're not going to post an entry next year about how this birthday sucked, are you?"

No. Definitely not.

Great thanks to all who made it out to El Myr last night! At one point I looked around the table(s) and counted thirteen people. Considering that a couple of years ago I think maybe three people showed up despite me inviting all of ljatlanta, this really touched me. As did all your good wishes.

Thank you, everyone, for making it a very special birthday.

Isn't it funny?

Sometimes in life you look back on how far you've come and you're really impressed.

You look back on the stupid shit you used to do and then you look at yourself now and you're like "Wow! I really have come a long way, baby!"

And you compare your reactions then with your reactions now and you're so proud of yourself and you run around yelling about it because you want the whole world to know how much you've grown up.

But then you turn around and do something stupid and suddenly you're questioning whether you've actually learned anything at all.

(And when I say "you," I mean me. As if you had any doubt.)

Dear Eli Manning,

Just because your brother's making bank in the NFL doesn't mean you get to be a diva before you've even played a single game. A bit of unsolicited advice for you and your stage-momma daddy: Sit down and shut up.

Dear Milwaukee Bucks,

Thank you for being the lone team to pull an upset so far in the playoffs. You're doing your part to keep things at least a little interesting.

Dear Tim Thomas,

Seriously, dude, STFU. You forgot the First Commandment of Trash Talk: Thy mouth shalt not write checks thy body cannot cash. The only reason Keith Van Horn has the reputation of Softest Player in the NBA instead of you is because he's a Mormon choirboy.

On second though, don't shut up. So far your infantile baiting is the most interesting thing about the playoffs.

Dear Lakers,

I hate you. I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you I hate you. Did I mention that I hate you?
