The Real Birthday

The Real Birthday

Yesterday Byron and I had pizza from the “New York Pizza” place on my block.  I’d often bragged about how this place made the best pizza ever.  Well, something must have happened, because I was wrong.  This was not the best pizza ever.  It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either.  The sauce was bland and lacking.  The crust was soft and sweet (which is good) but not at all crisped/blackened like one would expect.  Also, whereas over a year…

The Weirdest birthday. part III

I opened up my mail today to see two birthday cards from two Aunts (thank you Aunt Alice and Aunt Ruth) and…. a jury duty summons from LA Courts… what a great birthday gift!  Their timing is impeccable (except when you’re waiting in line)!

The outpouring of birthday love continued on Saturday. Sam baked a dish of potatoes Au Gratin and brought a birthday cake (remembering that my favorite was strawberry shortcake/white cake).  After eating we went to watch Fuel in Encino. Fuel didn’t have a lot of new information.  In fact it was kind of annoying, in the way that Inconvenient Truth was annoying when Al Gore started talking about growing up on the (multi-million dollar) “farm” in Tennessee.  Except Josh Tickel is…

Is this a challenger?  Reminds me of Death Proof. This funky piece had a camaro or a corvette under it… I forget which. These morons apparently got wind of the “show” and thought they’d show off.  They…

The Weirdest Birthday. Part II

Yesterday in the mail came a nondescript manila envelope.  The return address was from my uncle.  It was then I remembered him asking me for my address as he wanted to send me something from my distant past.  I opened up the envelope and in between pieces of cardboard were several drawings and coloring book pages from when I was 5 and 6 years old.  Now I feel bad, because I know my uncles birthday was in the last two…

The weirdest birthday. Part 1

So this is shaping up to be the weirdest birthday.  Since my birthday technically isn’t for another three days I’m going to chop this up into parts in case anything else strange happens. Part one involves a rather large styrofoam package being delivered to my office: Upon opening…. And finally, contents are revealed: One very large cheese wheel, two “Trail Bologna” packs and two reusable freezer pack things. Gotta hand it to my mom for always doing something….different.  Now the…
