Birthday Pool

Congrats to Damien, Dick and Will, who won the annual Birthday Pool by correctly guessing that my birthday would land on February 21st this year. Almost everyone got the month right, and from there you have (usually) a 1 in 28 chance of correctly guessing the day, almost 4%, which is pretty close to the percentage of my friends who got it right. I'm not complaining; it's nice to have a birthday that seems to last for well over a week. It's like The Twelve Days of Birthday.

Here is one of the later entries:

Tonya: Happy Birthday!

me: thanks!

Tonya: I hope you're having a good one.

me: it was actually on Monday, but yes, it was a good one.

Tonya: oh my god! I'm so sorry. I told all of our mutual friends it was today... you'll be getting some more phone calls in the next few hours.

horrible, terrible people

my mom, in reference to my brother's new goatee: I think it looks good. He's starting to look more and more like his father, back in the day.

me: back when dad was a sexual predator?


me: I should probably cut down on the bulimia jokes.

Tim: no, you should go ahead and get them all out of your system.


my mom, to her parents: that orphan's fund sure pulled in a lot of money this year. Lucky orphans. Damn I wish I was an orphan.
