Sunday, March 19, 2006 :::
My birthday festivities continued into Saturday, when Cherry Nut and Brent treated me to some spicy chicken and garlic snap peas. I wore cuff links for the first time ever, because Year 31 is going to be all about new experiences for me, I've decided:
The Oscar Wilde T-shirt is from Ireland, but after just one wash it shrunk to skin-tight proportions, so now it's relegated to underwear status, which is kinda cool because it almost seems even more subversive when nobody knows I'm wearing it. Speaking of outfits, don't stare at the gold glittery woman in the background for too long or you'll go blind. She's head to toe sequined and for some reason she reminded me of the wheel in Wheel of Fortune. In fact, I would venture to say that if she wore that outfit on Halloween and somebody asked her what she was and she said "I'm a game show set decoration" they would be like "Oh yeah..."
Actually, I'm not 31 for another nine minutes, so I better take advantage of my last few moments of being even-numbered.

If you're 31, it's already Year 32, dude. Just like in "the 21th century began on january, 1 2001".

Happy Birthday Dan! Wishing you all the best in year 31 (it's like the name of the year, year of the dragon, year of the 31).

That picture totally does not do her justice. You see her gold earrings and a hint of her head dress, but just so everyone is clear, she was wearing a black cowboy hat with a large, sparklie rose in it. It also had a really long gold bow/sash wrapped all the way around it. Her glittery jacket was in fact a bolero style jacket and it was worn over a somewhat irridescent black work-out top which had a plunging neckline. To complete the ensemble, she wore a skirt with leggings (it was kind of chilly that night) and a tiny gold belt. Of course she had cowboy boots on, but I couldn't see the color. They could have been brown or copper because she had no problem mixing and matching elements.

It is AWESOME being a prime number. I will miss it when I turn 32 in July.

Happy Birfday, Dan! You can keep celebrating all week long as long as you don't tell KMack you're having fun without her.
I suspect that sparkly lady has another couple of tricks up her sleeve... She seems like the type to own lots of rhinestone-studded denim.

I'm all for glitter... is that bad? I mean, she may have taken it a little tooooooo far. How old was she? Maybe she thought she was here and going to the rodeo... I think I see that outfit's long lost sibling every day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAN!! 31 - still a young lass. Of course, being 28, I can say that without tears. Looks like you had a way more fun birthday than mine, so at least you've got that!

Happy birthday you gay alcoholic! Remember it is never too late to turn your life around. Enjoy the rest of your short life. If AIDS doesn't kill you, the alcohol will. We at AA love you and are here when you are ready.

wow, how can a person be so sick...really, I get anonymous AA guy is annonymous but really whoever it is I actualy feel so sorry for...what a sad,sad, pathetic life to lead,saying horrificly angry things day after day on a blog...do you have anything in your life that would make you feel good enough about yourself not to bash others? really it is pathetic and opens my naive eyes to how some people can dish out such filthy ideas and feelings with no care for how a person could be affected by them. I know Dan,he is well adjusted and can take the comments without a second thought...really I have asked him,he could care less...but really,what is wrong with you?

My mommy didn't hug me enough.
By , at 11:05 AM
Oh puke,your not even remotely funny...
By , at 1:35 PM
anonymous means "you're" not even funny, and I agree. I have ignored you up til now, but I can't handle bad humor. Get funny or go away.
By the other sarah, at 1:51 PM
oops, yeah,I guess my plan to offend and make the AA guy feel stupid does not have the same weight when I myself cannot even put together a sentence that makes sense!

I thought we all agreed to Ignore AA guy. Not worth the energy.

Happy Birthday Dan!
It seems like lately a lot of people are telling you where they are reading your blog from. You have some fans in St. Peter, MN. I know it's not an exotic locale but it's within visiting distance. If you and your fun friends wanted to get out of town and go to a kick-ass bar, (where I work and we all hang out) we would love it. Just give us some warning so you get a proper welcome.

maybe this is the year you take a serious look and make a rational mature decision about your ALCOHOLISM
By , at 12:53 AM
Happy Birthday, Dan! I hope this year brings us more of your hilarious life stories!
By pixelala, at 12:39 PM
I don't know you. But I hope I one day have a party with a woman dressed like a game show. And as far as dressing up like a game show, you really can't beat Wheel of Fortune. So you did pretty good there Dan. Much better than parties with people dressed as the Jerry Springer show, though that has its own delights too.

i wish i could have seen crazy sequined lady in person.
i bet she has a bedazzler at home, too.
By Honey Bunny, at 4:28 PM
