...but I kinda like the Cream Pies.
Ganache. Is there not a more heavenly thing on earth?
Today's an important day for the following peeps:Alfred Kinsey
born on June 23, 1894--Mmm...science and sex, what more can you want!Bob Fosse
born on June 23, 1927--Too much Broadway for me to appreciate. I'd rather gouge my eyes out and pour hot ganache in the sockets than be dragged to a Broadway production.Richard Bach
born on June 23, 1936--I think my dad made us watch the movie version of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. If I remember rightly he made smartass wisecracks throughout the whole thing making a "deep" book/movie friggin hilarious.Stuart Sutcliffe
born on June 23, 1940--The true 4th Beatle if you ask me. Backbeat
made me cry.Wilma Rudolph
born on June 23, 1940--Run Wilma! Run!Randy Jackson
born on June 23, 1956--Happy Birthday dawg!Joss Whedon
born on June 23, 1964--Yes, I'll admit it, I'm a Buffy geek.LaDainian Tomlinson
born on June 23, 1979--I saw him play football at my VERY first college game I ever went to--CSU v. TCU. We beat those mother smugger Horned Frogs! The thing I hate the most about the east coast is their lack of teams that bother to play Mountain West teams. I'd love to see a CSU game in person again.
And hey, I just found out it's Pam, Yarny Goodness
Proprietress Extrodinaire's birthday today too! (Why yes, that would be a pimp of her store that features products by yours truly!)
It's also my 30th birthday. Woot.
What have I accomplished in 30 years?
I've made residence in 5 different states in 4 different time zones.
I've been married nearly a third of my life (yikes, that
makes me feel old).
I did my time in college for three years and collected an AA.
I've popped out and helped raise an amazing little nutbar.
I've pushed paper professionally for 11 years.
There's been a lot of shitty things that have happened to us lately--the Texass Debacle, Shitty September ala the IRS, and the latest fun and games surrounding Dr. Mad Scientist's addiction issues. But that's all recent history, and with time it won't seem so big or shitty.
I remember being forced out of college nine or so years ago when I ran out of money to be a big-ass horrible deal that I thought my life was over. I say forced out because I would have stayed in if I could have. But the money ran out. Dropping out is what you do when you don't want to go anymore. Yeah, whatever, not as big a crisis as I thought it was at the time. A college degree is a nice thing to have, but sometimes I'm glad I don't have one.
So another year and another decade come and gone. I guess I'll just continue to roll with whatever life spits our way.
Life is always sweeter with ganache anyway.
