April 23, 2008


It's April 23rd.  People who were born today include William Shakespeare, Max Planck, Admiral Karel Doorman, "Sunny" Jim Bottomley, Warren Spahn, Shirley Temple, Roy Orbison, Kenji Kawai, Valerie Bertinelli, Andruw Jones, and John CenaWrigley Field hosted its first baseball game on April 23rd, 1914, too.

And in 1968, in a hospital somewhere in Chicago, me.

At this moment, let us spare a moment's sympathy for my mother.  I was a big baby, pushing 10 lbs... and I was over a month late, originally scheduled for St. Patrick's Day.  Thanks, Momzerduck!

So today, I turn 40.  Nobody is more surprised than me.

UPDATE: The candles on my birthday cake...

Boy, blowing that one out is gonna be a tough job.

Give me a three-toed sloth, a tongue depressor, and a hurricane though, and I think I could pull it off.

Happy Birf'day.

3 I can understand the sloth and the hurricane, but what's the tongue depressor for?

4 It's for applying the sloth, of course.

7 Whoops!  A belated happy birthday to you!

You're exactly one day younger than my younger brother.  So you're still a spring duckling as far as I'm concerned.
