Yo, this is a shout out to Smashing Guy, who recognized Thag when I was playing heroes today. That was pretty awesome.|
Holy crap, you actually went back in today? How was it?
Well, Issue 9 isn't out yet, which apparently everyone has been on pins and needles for, but it was okay. Look me up if you're on!
If you don't mind my asking, what server do you play on?
Couldn't find the e-mail link anywhere on the EOI page by means of which I might have e-mailed you on the issue of critical importance which you alluded to; your impending 30th birthday.
My good sir, I have given this matter some considerable thought, and I would like to share with you the fruits of my contemplation. It is my hope that you will find them to be sweet.
Now, most of us measure our ages in a fairly arbitrary way; we measure it against the rotation of the planet we HAPPEN to be standing on at the moment. It seems bizarre to me that we should have something so integral to our identities defined by something so completely out of our control as that, and that we should furthermore accept it with such equanimity.
For my own part, I have decided that this scheme is entirely unacceptable to me. In the time since I was born, the earth has rotated around the sun nearly 29 times. But how often has Mars rotated around it? How many times has Uranus? I have decided that I will continue to indulge my peers in this Earth-centric age-measurement until the day I hit 29. From that day forwards, I will begin to measure my age by Plutonian standards. As such, it will take me 248 years to reach my 30th birthday. By this time, I will long since be dead, and as such, will NEVER have to suffer through a 30th birthday. I will literally be 29 until the day that I die.
You have somewhat less time to act upon this wisdom; only a week. But if you begin to measure your age by Plutonian standards RIGHT NOW, you can still do okay; by my calculations, a Plutonian week is equal to almost five earth years, and as such, you can stave off your 30th birthday for nearly ahlf an earth-decade. Subsequent to this, you may need to come up with even more esoteric means of measuring your age in order to avoid the sentence of living death which is life past your 20s.
I hope that these tactics will be as useful to you as I hope they will be to me.
Ooo, that's a cunning plan. I just stopped counting after I turned 24. But then, I am blonde so I don't think so good.
Doom and gloom and dark despair,
People dying everywhere
Happy birthday - Unf!
Happy birthday - Unf!
Happy Birthday, good sir! And may you have many more.
(By the way, I'm not yet there myself, but I've believed for a long time that 30 should replace 18 as the legal age of adulthood. So in my book, you've just become a young adult. Congratulations!)
To grow old is inevitable
To grow up is optional!
Stay young at heart! Happy Be-Lated Birthday! I hope it was a good one!

So, I missed your birthday due to being out of the country. But I did not forget it, as it is naked day, and also the same as my boyfriend's birthday. And I decided to wish you a happy belated one once I got back. To many more years of keeping me entertained while I'm supposed to be doing homework! Cheers!

You sir, are LAZY. And now you will face public humiliation
