Tomorrow, a great American Institution turns 40

And so does the Super Bowl.

Yes, ladies and gents, the rumors are true: tomorrow I turn 40.

I know, I know: as those who know me well know that I've been XL for a long, long time.

Other than increasingly feeling like Mr. Hand, there is no noticeable difference. Our program coordinator at work got me the greatest birthday present I've received in ages: a Napoleon Dynamite talking key-chain. So I've been padding around the house making various noises all day. Needless to say, The Dear One wasn't too impressed when I kept pushing the button that said, "I like your sleeves---they're real big."

Anyhoo, the Cranky Factor has been pegged at maximum. I'll let you know how tomorrow goes.

(And yes, The Cranky Factor would be a good name for a blog).

All I want for my 40th birthday is a 40 ounce bottle of Bud. Well, that and a Vietnamese prostitute, of course.

We'll see if my pending match against Joseph Nye allows me to live that long.

But seriously, happy 40th -- get our there and do something that doesn't involve horses, llamas, or Derrida.

get our there and do something that doesn't involve horses, llamas, or Derrida.

Or involves all three and a chainsaw...

Happy birthday

Happy Birthday! Hope the Cranky Factor goes down some. Cranky Factor would also be a good title for a despot in some sort of humor-based fantasy series. All hail the Cranky Factor!

Well, I'm kind of like the Johnny Cash character in that song about Sunday mornings, except from drinking too much Metamucil.
