oh, my name it ain't nothin', my age it means less

happy birthday to me! 

and while i'm at it, happy birthday to the hilariously motley crew that was lucky enough to be born on this day: jack white, donald rumsfeld, shaft (a.k.a. richard roundtree), the kid who plays the guy friend on hannah montana, oj simpson, john tesh, fred savage (my personal favorite; kevin arnold is my boyfriend), courtney love and kelly mcgillis (tied for second place), tom hanks, that chick with the lisp from 3lw/the cheetah girls, franz boas, brian dennehy, dean koontz, jimmy smits, oliver sacks, and my former co-worker, all-around cool kid, and 1988 birthday twin, justin.

oh, and just in case you're wondering if i've somehow managed to soak up all of these july 9 babies' awesomeness simply by virtue of being born on the same day, the answer is yes.. yes, i have.

aside from waiting on some love sent by my boy express from tokyo, it's business as usual for me today, since i habitually make a point of downplaying my birthday each year, though i couldn't tell you why. as far as the big 2-1 goes, i don't drink, so that whole buying booze legally shtick just doesn't get me going. i'm mostly glad that i can finally go where i want on weekends without having to worry about an unexpected hassle at the door.

so let's all raise a glass (of vitamin water) to entering the realm of twentysomethings, yeah?

Happy Birthday! That's a refreshing attitude to turning 21 and being able to drink...I can't actually remember mine, and I'm embarrassed to say I'd been able to drink for 3 years!
