Survived Another Year

Yesterday was my birthday. I am teh oldz.

Lots of people called me, emailed me and MySpaced me, which was really nice. Thank you everyone, you make me feel like I belong to the human race which is something I often don't feel, since I'm such a hermit these days and I'm lousy at keeping in touch with people even if I care about them a lot. I'm weird that way, sigh.

Even better than that (which is very hard to do), we went to Ground Control last night and everyone there also offered me much birthday love, which was surprising and wonderful and I really couldn't absorb it very well even with the help of some jynnan tonnyx (of which I'm still feeling the aftermath, heh...). It was declared my birthday night and most everyone sang some kind of metal or hair band type song to celebrate. It was awesome!

But the very best part of it, which was a complete surprise, was that when I got up to sing (Ground Control is a karaoke night) what I thought was going to be a Van Halen song, instead, to my chagrin, somehow The Lovely Girlfriend managed to get a hold of my song "Only In Your Mind," which GC Master Andrew turned into an actual karaoke song with the digital lyrics and some embarrassing photos of me which were projected on the wall behind me. That song has never been performed in front of more than maybe 2 or 3 people at our old apartment back in NJ, and here I had to sing it with no warning in front of 30 or 40 people... at least most of them were our friends! I was able to sing it with no problems though... I guess it's like falling off a bike.

My girlfriend is the Best. Girlfriend. Ever. She totally surprised me and nobody has ever done anything like that before. It was far better than any surprise party could have been. Doing that was one of the most caring, insightful and wonderful things anyone's ever done for me. TGF has shown me over and over again that she is Miss Right, but never more so than last night. Thank you hunny, I love you very very very much.

Also thank you for letting me get a bit drunk and ham it up all night. I know it embarrasses you to death so I appreciate that quite a lot. ;)

So, here's a bunch more thank yous which I want to send out:
Andrew and Heather, for karaoke-izing my silly power ballad and miraculously procuring us a pair of Rolling Stones tickets;
Tiffany and Craig for the gift certificate and the insanely great mega-chocolate cupcakes, which are far better than bukkake!
Freak Coleman for the free food (which soaked up the booze, but gave me terrible heartburn later, heh);
Tina and Connie-Lynne (and TGF too) for jynnan tonnyx! (Ow, my head...);
Everyone else at GC: Schreeck, Jen, Howard, Jenz, Cricket, Jacob, Prisko, Mike the Bartender, Kar3n, Jason, New Jen, Sean, Josh, David, Jenner (bon voyage!), Steve, Evelyn, Dean and... uh... well, everyone else who was there. I'm probably forgetting someone important, because my head is like a sieve.
Phone calls, emails, etc: Mom, Sideshow Steve, Carlos, Gus, Bruce, Lyn, Parker, V, Gayla, Queenie, Kat, Nadia, Cheryl, Shauna, Kadimah, Eain, Emily, Gina, Whitney.
Early wishes: Natara & Rick, Teaa & Scott, Teafaerie, James, and the Denizens of the Asylum.

Geez. I have a lot of friends. I need to stop hermiting and actually spend time with them and be a human being.

Thanks everyone. I didn't know you all cared so much. It's really nice to know.

Apparently, I am this kind of muscle car:
