Happy Friggin Birthday to…

Happy Friggin Birthday to…

…me, I guess…this place is now one year old!  (No need to send me anything.)  To all the haters who said it couldn’t be done, look at me now!  A nice, tidy 150 posts – a few of which were 75% suck-free.  I’m clearly moving on up in the world.  A little reflection is due on a day like today, so let’s take a look back at some of the highlights of the last 365…christina, veronic, goatees

5 Things I’ve Learned (Other Than That People Are Fond Of Goatees, Would Like To See Veronica Hamel Naked And Are Curious To Know Christina Hendrick’s Dimensions)

1.  There are three kinds of people in the world: 1) Creative types who pursue their passions (artists, entrepreneurs, break dance crews), odds against them be damned; 2) Book-smart, risk-averse types who can execute and keep the ball rolling on pre-existing ideas; and 3) People who are the second type of person but think they fit in the first category.

2.  I’m a category three person.

3.  Frequenters of this site particularly dislike pharmaceutical rep stories.

4.  Homophone errors will happen even to the non-mentally disabled.

5.  A website – like a dog with a leash in its mouth, looking longingly at the door when you are trying to take a nap – can make you feel pretty guilty and lazy.

Comment of the Year

Alyssa, I don’t know who you are, but please come back.   We need to hang out more.

Comment #5 from The Haunting Poetry of Lady Gaga post:

dear person,

you’re a fucking ra-tard. Poker face is about sexuality. RESEARCH LADY GAGA MORE DUMBASS.

It’s perfect.  From the very specific phonetics of “ra-tard” to the all caps finish, it’s just perfect.  Looking forward to more insights, A.  Call me.

Coolest Thing That Happened All Year

Having Romeo JD of the Boogie Boys – only one of my favorite rap groups of the mid-80s! – leave a comment on this post about Reassessing My Life’s Goal.  Hopefully in 2010 somebody from UTFO will drop me a line and then we will be all set.

Time to have some cake,

  1. Happy birthday chilly. Thanks for the shout out. I promise you I will be your #1 commenter next year. It is my #3 goal for 2010. Right behind “Throw a toaster at a whiny 4 year old” and “Buy a matching Hermes baseball glove”.

  2. Happy Chilly B-day. I’ve been addicted to your insightful wisdom for about a month now (as a result of falling victim to searching google for the undisputed candy bar champion). It’s gotten me through countless hours at the office. Each post is like a golden manna nugget hurled down to our eathly domain by Zeus himself. Here’s to many more – keep ’em coming.

  3. Those are estimable goals, T. You are off to a strong start. Take a look at the Hermes saddle as well – if you are sporting both baseball gloves and the saddle at 1OAK, you will have your pick of the ladies.

  4. Jeebus, Mike, that’s probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said about this site. I’m more used to “your a maron” or “goatees aren’t fucking stupid you fucking yankee I’ll kick yer ass if I ever see you on the street.” You are currently high on the leaderboard for commenter of the year for year 2.
