First of all...

        I wanna say a monstrous thank you for the massive flood of birthday emails, e-cards, attachments, dirty pics, bad jokes, harassment, alcohol, Tylenol and birthday noogies.  If you have NOT been party to any of the above - it’s not too late, and I AM still accepting cheque and money orders.
