      @Kristine, really? I look so weird, though!

    I didn’t realize we were the same age. Happy early birthday to you, Adam.

      @OHmommy, did you think I was much, much older? I just assumed you were in your mid-twenties.

    Feet pictures are not okay.
    Fucking young one here hasn’t learned that, yet.

    “Even when you tell the truth, people may not believe you. That’s okay – you know that you’re telling the truth, and that’s what is important.”

    I have a hard time with this, still. I really hate feeling like loved ones don’t believe me when I’m telling the truth. I have trouble with doubting myself on some things. But I’m A LOT better than 4 years ago.

    Do you always follow this? Do you ever get really frustrated when someone doesn’t believe your truth?

      @Poppy, I have gotten frustrated, yeah, but it’s still on the other person to give me that trust, if I haven’t done anything personally to disrupt or violate it.

      @Dave2, too early – this totally doesn’t let you off the hook for tomorrow’s potential birthday wishes, you realize.

    Happy birthday! I’m starting to think Chuck E Cheese might be more fun if you go without kids. Hmmm….

    Uh, dude. You forgot that most health organizations recommend beginning digital rectal exams for prostate cancer/BPH screenings at age 40. So you’ve got that milestone to look forward to!

      @Superjules, that will be fun!

    I love you, man. Thank you for everything and I hope you know how very grateful I am to know you. I’d say that you’re one in a million, but i don’t know that many people so I can’t say it truthfully.
    :P wish i could come celebrate your oldness with you.
    Fucker.

      @Anna Tyrone, awww, I love when you get all sappy and shit. Wish you could come here, too, but somebody had to quit her job instead of earning money!

    Happy early Birthday (by a day at least).

    The life lessons are well learned. Now if they would stop closing up these Chuck E Cheese locations, I could still make a visit to eat a cheese pizza and play 40 video games (tokens are king there)

    what about elderly white janitors?

      @hello haha narf, they turn out to be child molesters named Freddy Krueger.

    but seriously, i don’t agree with this:

    “There is always someone smarter, more attractive, funnier, or quicker, but there are a lot more people who are dumber, uglier, slower, and who think Dane Cook is funny. Hang around with those people instead.”

    i find that i am a better person when i hang around folks smarter, prettier, funnier, quicker, etc. kind of awesome how i am elevated by my friends. i mean, why would anyone want to be queen of the dipshits?

    maybe it is just me. oun’t know.

    I had heard a rumor that Chuck E Cheese wouldn’t allow you in without a child. I guess that kills my dream of getting rich renting out my daughter for the young at heart’s entrance to CeCs. Damnit.
    Happy Birthday! You now owe me at least the cost of my child’s college tuition. I figure we can call that fair since you quashed my scheme.

    • Avitable
      Wednesday, January 25, 2012

      @Gamanda, I think that the rules have changed since I went 8 years ago. You have to have a kid to get in now. So your plan is still viable!

    I think that the older I get, the more important it is to me to do things that make me happy, regardless of what anyone else thinks. Actually, that’s more the point: the older I get, the less attention I pay to other people’s opinions of me.
    I’m so happy that I know you. Watching you the past couple of years has been amazing and instructive in the art of being happy.

      @Kaply, aww, thanks. I’ve enjoyed watching you soften around your edges, too.

    Happy birthday! At your young age, you are far ahead of me, as I have just learned this one:
    “Anyone who criticizes you constantly is not doing it out of love. They’re doing it out of self-hatred. Unless it’s your mom, then it’s totally out of love.”

      @Just Me, that took me some time too.

    How about I get you a sample pack of craft beers for your birthday specially chosen by me so that you can finally find one that you might actually enjoy? Beers flavored by bananas, spices, chocolate and the whatnot.

    (ahem)

    • Avitable
      Wednesday, January 25, 2012

      @B.E. Earl, I know, I know! They’re still in my fridge, just waiting for me to sit down and try them. I’m just afraid of wasting them, so I haven’t drank any of them yet. I feel so bad!

      • B.E. Earl
        Wednesday, January 25, 2012

        @Avitable, ;)

        No worries. Want me to re-send you the descriptions of what I sent you and how you should enjoy them?

      • Avitable
        Wednesday, January 25, 2012

        @B.E. Earl, no, I have that starred in my email so I that I can follow along properly. I am going to make it a mission to do that some night soon.

    My Dad is 70 and I have NEVER seen him without a beard. Also, your crazy asshole janitor comment is a gem. As is this post.

    Happy Birthday. Dude I’m older than you. Weird.
