Post So I was looking around facebook
And in the next 3 days... 9 of my friends have birthdays. So when this happens it gets me to thinking what was nine months ago (well nine and some change; I just for get how much change to add). I came up with New years. I used to think November was the B-day month (for those of you wondering it is 9 months from Valentines Day).

Just a thought for those of you who have B-days in the next few days, and in November.

I think I once read that September has the most births. Of course, my birthday is in July. As for those November birthdays, we all know whose birthday is most important in November.

You have to close the tag

For the record, I tried clicking Close all Tags and it didn't work. Maybe the emoticons interfered or something.

I looked at my friends' birthdays and I have four friends who share a birthday with me and that fact has nothing to do with why we're friends.

allison mack is 24? egad. stupid smallville. of course, tom welling is like...30-something...and michael rosenbaum is older than that...but, yeah, of course i believe the characters are all 19.

i hate smallville.

peter cushing's birthday is the same day as mine. he was in star wars, so that was a big deal to me at some point in my life, lol.

i don't think i share a birthday with any friends, but 2 of my friends' moms' birthdays are the day before, and i have a lot of friends born 2 days after mine...

I share my July 4 1988 Birthday from two other guys in my class born in the same hospital, a girl born a year later. A deceased priest also had the July 4 birthday, and there was one other kid in my class born on that day too.. He's a bit of a juvenile delinquent. One kid who left McAuley from my was born on July 3, and one girl was born on the 5th.

i love facebook.

when other people generate them, not me.

mmhmm.

Yeah, see, I don't think the fact that it's Cinco de Mayo means that more people will be drunk during ceremony than normal. Those folks'll get drunk regardless of the day.

Regardless, I reallllly wanna see you drunk Kyle. That would like, highlight my Truman experience.
