It's my party...

...and I'll blog about me if I want to.

I was going to post this picture of me, at the age of 2:
Me in 1978

Somewhat frighteningly, I look largely the same now as I did then, though the hair is a little more unruly now. Add glasses and incorporate a slight decline in fashion sense (this was the best blue-and-red velvet dress there ever was), and voilĂ  - me, 30 years later, on the same day, in 2008.

Anyway, as I was saying, I was going to post that picture of me, but I feel obliged to post the cover of the birthday card that Randal gave to me instead:

Hey hey, I'm famous.

Hey, Andy Warhol couldn't have done this any better.

In other birthday-related news, today I learned another reason why the date November 22 is historically important/interesting. In addition to being the day marking both the death of JFK (in 1963) and of course the day when I first graced this earth (in 1976), it is also the day French troops crushed any hope of an independent Alsatian republic in the town of Strasbourg. Thanks to my good friend Mark of Marching Fishes fame for having friends as interested in history as him.

I'm going to have to take a snapshot of that street sign for you. Or, you guys could just visit and take a picture of it yourselves.

Very cool card by the way. He's pretty talented for a guy who has yet to discover two-wheeled bicycles.
