Year 34: The Pageant of the Supertransmundane AKA Happy Birthday To Me

Last year, I was a little introspective about my birthday, but this year... well, I am feeling a little more playful.

I like being playful. Because while I am sometimes dour in real life, in general I laugh a lot. I mean, a lot... and if you can laugh, well, then you find merriment in a lot of things, and that has value. I sometimes forget that, but if you can laugh, you can get through many problems.

I could say it was the best of times, or it was the worst of times, but you know, it is often both at the same time... a year full of both high expectations and hopes dashed... but I learned for both, and that has value too. Of course, I followed other things aside from the saga of Conan O'Brien...

But the thing I think I most want from this upcoming year is to be more like Terry Crews. Yes, I share a birthday with the awesomeness of Samuel L. Jackson, but I think Mr. Crews transcended that kind of cool this year. So if pictures of me bare-chested at the New York Stock Exchange pop up or of me knocking some buildings down, you'll know why. And if I was Terry Crews cool, I too could become the fictional President of the United States, and that is a dream worth pursuing.

I ended up having a decent year, met some amazing people, ate well... so aside from the minor quibbles everyone has, I really can't complain.

And what more could you want from a year?
