The day Omega will hate for all time.

It's my 23rd birthday.

I feel so old.

And yet I'm so happy
 


Posted by Siegfried (Member # 29) on :
 
Happy Birthday, Jeff!

Anyway, in hono(u)r of your 23rd birthday, the members of the Flare community shall line up, and each one will give you 23 whacks on your butt. Jubes gets to use the cat-o'-nine-tails with the metal stud handle. Liz can use the whip. Omega will get to use the feather duster. I'm going to stand over here and take pictures.

Today's my birthday also.
 
Posted by Jay the Obscure (Member # 19) on :
 
Happy birthday there Jeff.

He's half man, half jeep, and half pizza.
 


Posted by MeGotBeer (Member # 411) on :
 
Don't you mean, a third man, a third Jeep, and a third pizza?
 
Posted by Siegfried (Member # 29) on :
 
Happy Birthday, Frank! You can stand next to Jeff to get your birthday spankings.

Okay, everyone, get in a line. When I call you up here, you give Jeff his 23 whaps on his butt. Then you move over to Frank and give him 120 smacks on his butt.
 


Posted by The_Tom (Member # 38) on :
 
Bah. Give him 170.
 
Posted by Vogon Poet (Member # 393) on :
 
Hearty goodonyers to JeffK. Although I'd like to point out that given the amount of deer DNA that's impacted his car, he's rather a third man, a third pizza, two-ninths Jeep and one-ninth deer. 8)
 
Posted by PsyLiam (Member # 73) on :
 
If only we knew when Frank's birthday was. I'm sure it was around this time.

Oh well, I'm sure he'll post and tell us.

Happy Birthday Jeff.

"He's half man, half jeep, and half pizza."

"Don't you mean, a third man, a third Jeep, and a third pizza?"

No. You're a big fat mother.

It's my birthday in a month. I'm terrified. I have no important ones left.

Until you reach that age where EVERY birthday is an important one by sheer dint of just HAVING it.

birthdays are the best. i got a car for my last birthday.... well... it was a toy car that had a car alarm. I wish it was real.

I'm going to buy a Toyota Celica GTS for my 25th birthday. Six speed manual transmission.


 


Posted by The359 (Member # 37) on :
 
GTS? Go for the All-Trac, you get 4WD and Turbo...
 
Posted by MeGotBeer (Member # 411) on :
 
There's an All-Trac Celica?

No, I've got 4WD with my Jeep. I want something fast and air-conditioned.

Not substitutes. Extensions

While we're at it: I just got my license! Whoohoo, and all that. All pedestrians within 200 miles to Red Alert status!

Now, all I have to do is land myself an at least half-decent hotrod, which is no small task...
 


Posted by MeGotBeer (Member # 411) on :
 
Congrats.

Liam, I think you're just jealous of people with more disposable income

Actually, what that amounts to for me is more financial control. Need to pay off the credit cards, and be consistent in deposits to my savings account. I drew up some rough figures, and I can have three of my cards paid off by this time next year and still have $1800 in the bank. Since I'll be down to one credit card next August or September, I can boost the amount of $$$ to my savings' account and have a rather nice down payment saved up for my 25th birthday: which will, also, completely and entirely coincidental, coincide with the traditional drop in insurance that comes with the marking of a quarter-century spent alive.

And since my record is very clean insurance wise, I'll get a big cut (as it is, I pay $150 for my Jeep, with no reported claims on it).

And then comes spectra blue mica, 6-speed, 180 horsepower at $320 a month for 72 months (assuming I put a $7k downpayment on it).

Speaking of which, I've just learned your friend and mine, Fabrux, has just placed a down-payment on an '88 Ford Ranger. Congrats! Try not to wreck this one, okay?

Well, I'll, uh, try not to wreck it. I've become a more careful driver after the accident.
 
Posted by MeGotBeer (Member # 411) on :
 
I would certainly hope so. Then again, most drivers I know (even young ones) know not to accelerate in bad weather on a tight curve.

A Corvette? Are you insane? The poor weather handling sucks, there's zero visiblity ...

Bad choice on cars, dude. If you get one, at least get a stick shift.

Happy belated birthday, dude! Hope you had a blast.
 
Posted by Mr. Christopher (Member # 71) on :
 
Hey! It wasn't bad weather. It was a clear, sunny day. And I didn't accelerate. I was going that fast on the road.

Congrats (again).

One more year 'till that Celica GTS, eh?
 
Posted by The359 (Member # 37) on :
 
No, no, Celica All-Trac! It's the fastest model of Celica available in North America (I'd say the world, but the Celica GT-Four RC from Japan is better. Damn them.)

And the Corvette 50th Anniversary sucks. It just has a special paintscheme and the new Magnetic Ride Control, which you can get on the Cadillac XLR anyway, as well as the next-generation Corvette for 2004. A Corvette Z06 would be much more "l33t".
 
Posted by Jay the Obscure (Member # 19) on :
 
Happy birthday there Jeff.

He's half man, half jeep, and half pizza.

So, Snay. Are your credit cards paid off? How are your plans coming along? You might as well make this thread a kind of yearly status report on all aspects of your life.

Happy birthday.

Posted by Snay (Member # 411) on :
 
How do you loose your license? I thought he was losing it.

No, my credit cards aren't paid off ... yet. My focus now is on paying off my Jeep. I do plan to be out of debt by next May, in time to get back into debt as I furnish my new two-bedroom one-den apartment I'm sharing with a chick friend of mine (emphasis on "friend").

I plan on buying a Ford Mustang 6-cylinder (manual transmission) at or around that time. Also, upgrading my computer will be a priority. I'll be finishing my degree that summer, and possibly continuing on for a master's degree in the fall. If not, I will be applying for a position with the Baltimore County Police Department.

Never reflect on your life, it will just depress you. Ah, loathe it or ignore it, you can't like it. You know... it's funny, how just when you think life can't possibly get any worse it suddenly does. I mean, life's bad enough as it is without wanting to invent any more of it.

I'm not getting you down at all, am I?

Jeff's jeep can't handle going over cattle-grids without falling to pieces. He's got no chance with even a small puddle, let alone the ocean.

Liam,

Since my Jeep has the ability to pulverize fully grown deer ... why do you think it would have any trouble turning you into Liam Soup?

That was a Shredder Moment.
 
Posted by PsyLiam (Member # 73) on :
 
Shredder was far more cool than Jeff. That was more a Skeletor moment.

Do you like wearing lots of purple, Jeffy-boy?

It comes and goes. I seem to be having more trouble this year. I think it's because there are onlt four of the next older generation of my family left, then I'm one of the elders. Both of my parents are gone now, and they have a brother and sister each still living. Ones 80, ones 78 or 79, and two are in their 60's. I'm the youngest of my sibs and I'm past 40. Yeah, I guess it's getting to me a little.

Posted by Malnurtured Snay (Member # 411) on :
 
Well, I seem to have this annoying habit of resurrecting this thread every year on August 9th (and while it isn't August 9th right now everywhere in the world, is it is now after 12:01 am Monday morning, so it is here) because I have an insane wish for people to say Wow, Jeff, happy birthday while really thinking Wow, Jeff, you crazy fucking ass, havent you killed yourself yet? Yes, Liam, I stole your thunder. Sorry.

So, in keeping with the suggestion that I might as well make this thread a kind of yearly status report on all aspects of your life, well, here goes.

I cant believe I started this thread three years ago. Wow. 23 to 26 (or as I like to say, Im turning 21 ... for the 5th time). It is kind of crazy how some things have turned out - I did buy a Toyota Celica, but not a GTS, and not on my 25th birthday (about a month earlier, actually).

Im still in debt. Bought a new computer, actually. But the balances are dropping. Ive paid off a few cards, and I have another one about to bite the dust in September, and hopefully two more by January. Im also saving for a trip to Hawaii early next year - my sister recently moved to Oahu after being offered a job as a middle school teacher. In case you dont understand this, this means all I have to do is pay for a plane ticket and I get to crash on her couch in her apartment RIGHT ON THE BEACH for a week. Of course, this is the opposite side of the island of Honolulu, and is apparently rather arid and has cacti and lots of homeless people who live in tents and own cars. Odd, but ... hey, its Hawaii!

A few of you might remember a few weeks ago when UM and I got into a bit of a snit-fest. Well, over some PM he reminded me that I once had the ambition to write, and hoped that I hadnt given up on that. Well I suppose I sort of had. Well no more! I quit my job at Papa Johns (and lets face it, I was doing that because I cant find a real job and now that I need time to focus my energy on this thing, Ill stick with the tipping job). Im working on launching a blog ... not one of those www.buildablogforfree.com thingies. Nah. Going to have (read: pay) someone build me a rather nice blog, register a domain name ... Im thinking a mix of politics, social commentary, personal stuff about me (and how best to kill deer), fiction, reviews, stuff like that. Ill print up a bunch of bumper-stickers and send em to people like Liam, Liz, Charles, Omega, Daryus and Lee (and so on and so forth), and others to illegally distribute them on peoples cars without their knowledge for free publicity. Itll be a guerilla campaign of sorts.

In the meantime, Im still playing a lot of Counter-Strike. Ill frag you, biatch! This new computer is nice, too, since it cuts down my lag and I actually have nights where my kill column is larger than my died column. Woohoo!

Well, herein ends another Snay update. Oh, real quick: my love life is deader than Ronald Reagan. On the other hand, my cats are both still alive. And Im still in my nice apartment. So I guess things are looking up, except, yknow, Im working some dead-end jobs. Eh, fuck it. Things will look up eventually, and if they dont, theres always suicide.

21st for the 5th time?

I'm 25 (and that doesn't seem correct) and (as) I feel like 17. I still feel guilty buying alcohol!! I often get carded if we go out - but I don't go out that much (drinking) anymore as

1. Waste of money
2. You feel like shit afterward (hello the dreaded "beer bog" the next morning.)
3. Few to little friends left in my life [Smile] [Frown] [Smile]
4. It stacks on the weight!

Oh I'll have a wine every now and then - If I go out to dinner with the family.

Let's see ... got a massive debt consolidation loan, including my car and all credit cards.

Career options coming close to fruition -- one option involves a Federal paycheck and schlepping mail as opposed to pizzas; the other is potentially a "junior buyer" position with a local but nationally renowned hospital (no, not that one).

Who knows where I'll be this time next year ... eh?

Another year older, another year wiser. Well, older.

Have you reached that age yet where you get killer hangovers from a few beers? Happened around my mid twenties, not sure when. 24, drinking all night, fresh(ish) as a daisy next day. 27, couple of pints and unable to count to 10 in the morning.

Well Snay, congratulations, and Happy Birthday. The good news is, another year has passed; the bad news is, another year has passed. [Wink]

Is it just me, or do the years seem to pass more quickly as we get older? I remember when I was around eight or ten, and each year's birthday seemed like such a huge event, and a year was such a long time! Even high school years seemed long, though in retrospect them "felt" shorter than earlier in grade school. And now (for example) it's already been almost nine months since I got my current job, and it's been such a quick year already!

You can at least try.

A little naughty goes alooong way, you know.

I'm 28 and very very old.

At least, that's how I feel.

I did not kill any deer this year, although I almost did, but I was able to stop in time. Unfortunatly, the motocycler on the crotch-rocket behind me was tailgating me so close he wound up having to put his bike down to avoid a collision. The lesson there, if you're a motorcycler, is thus: don't tailgate, moron.

Not much of one, if she didn't notice...or even wake up.

So, Snay- you're 28 today!
Happy Birthday (again).
I wont even tell you to get laid: if it's been three years now, you're officially un-fuckable, so have a drink, order a pizza and watch some Trek on DVD.
 
Posted by Malnurtured Snay (Member # 411) on :
 
Uh. No. It's been fourteen months.

I can't believe this thread is this old. I forgot to resurrect it last year -- actually, that's not true. I wasn't in a good place. Didn't feel good about myself or where I was in life: delivering pizzas, with a degree, renting a big cheap apartment in the bum fuck of nowhere. Didn't feel like reminding myself of what I considered to be my own failures.

So, today: I'm the big three-oh. 30. Big changes in my life since March, when I finally started a career.

I moved: Hogwarts came down. Most of my Legos are packed up in my parents' basement. My handguns are stored at my uncle's place on the eastern shore. I'm contemplating the purchase of a motorcycle this fall.

I live in a considerably smaller (and more expensive) apartment off of Connecticut Avenue in Northwest DC: literally, just off the National Zoo. A block from a Metro station (and two from another), through which I have access to all of this city's -- and the surrounding cities' -- attractions and offerings. I don't own a car. (Well, technically, I still do, but not really). In terms of career, I work a full-time office job, and slave part-time at a downtown bookstore (where I get 33% off! Yay!).

Monday, I have an interview for a middle-management position opening up at the day-job. I doubt I'll get it: I'm one of five interviewing, and the others have more experience than I do. Still, there are going to be more of these positions opening up in late September/early October, so that's where I have my eyes.

I have an HD TV, but not a Blu Ray DVD player. It's 22", which is fine for my apartment. I actually have plants in this apartment: a cactus-ish plant, and a spider plant. Both of my cats are still around, and getting up in years: I adopted them in the fall of 1999. Tippy was two months old, Guy was two years old.

I still play AstroEmpires, a MMOG I began in May 2007, although I would no longer call myself "addicted." I have seventeen bases (one of them new), an income of about 6000 credits per hour, and sixteen bases capable of producing Titan-Class ships, with eight capable of Leviathans, and New Annapolis capable of building Death Stars, the largest class ship possible (at 500k, and even on my highest production base, that's still 900 hours to build).

I've been neglecting my blog, but I want to put more effort into it. DC is a very wired city, and blogging can be a great social networking tool, as I learned in Baltimore.

Wonder where I'll be August 9th, 2009. Can't wait to find out!

Probably reviving the thread again. (Like birthdays, this joke comes around every year! [Razz] )

Seriously, congratulations. It's been about a year since I finally moved out of my parents' house, so I know what it's like to get your life in gear.
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
Happy Birthday, yet again.
Readng this yearly thread reminds me of all the good folks no longer posting here (or lately).
I blame you. (not really).

Good to hear you're doing better, career-wise.
Hopefully you at last got the day off of work!

Happy birthday Snay. Any tips on avoiding murdering deer with a car? We get a lot of them up here, and I don't want to end up deer hunting with a ford Tarus. I prefer a 12 gauge Remington for that. [Wink]

The more appropriate question is: what is Snay's deer kill count right now?
 
Posted by Daniel Butler (Member # 1689) on :
 
....*struggles not to say it*....

.....it's over NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAND!!!
 
Posted by Malnurtured Snay (Member # 411) on :
 
I haven't killed a deer since December -- HOWEVER!! -- I took a stroll through the National Zoo and came across one of the resident deer near the Aviary. I was tempted to totally run it over.
 
Posted by Sean (Member # 2010) on :
 
I got lost in the D.C. zoo once. Well, technically I was lost trying to get back in...

Happy Birthday Snay!! Hope you are eating better!!
 
Posted by TSN (Member # 31) on :
 
Very briefly, that appeared to say "Hope you are eating butter!!".
 
Posted by Sean (Member # 2010) on :
 
I saw a recipe for deep fried butter on the Food Network once. Looked good actually.
 
Posted by Daniel Butler (Member # 1689) on :
 
Deep....fried.....butter.

*ponders*

....

*ponders some more*

...So what did they fry the butter in?
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
I've had deep fried cheesecake...not too far removed.
Tasty as hell.
 
Posted by TSN (Member # 31) on :
 
"So what did they fry the butter in?"

Oil, one assumes?
 
Posted by Sean (Member # 2010) on :
 
Yep. They mix the cold butter with a tiny bit of cream cheese, to stop it all from melting, freeze that, then bread it, then freeze it a bit more, then deep fry it for 30 seconds in peaunt oil. Leave it to America to figure out how to deep fry fat...
 
Posted by Daniel Butler (Member # 1689) on :
 
Exactly. I mean, I fry things *in* butter sometimes. So when I saw fried butter, I thought, won't it...melt? And help fry something else? It sounded like "deep fried oil" to me.

1877: The Battle of Big Hole sounds far more porn-titleish than it actually is.

1944: Smokey the Bear is created.

1945: The third and only remaining nuclear bomb at the time in existence, Fat Man, obliterates Nagasaki, Japan. 70,000 people are immediately killed.

1974: Richard M. Nixon becomes the first President of the United States of America to resign his office.

1978: I am born.

Today’s horoscope:

The Moon moves into Aries today and squares Pluto, making this a day of intensity and high excitement. You may feel drawn to act first and think later, as events began to pick up speed. Try to slow down if you can and take heed of the potential consequences of your actions.

This is hilarious and awesome — I’m sitting at my couch, trying to decide whether I’m motivated or not to do laundry this morning. Clearly, I’m thinking too much, and I should just get off my ass and do it. I know the potential consequences of my actions — clean clothes!

**

So, let’s see — I’m thirty-one. I live in a 400 square foot studio apartment, have two cats, am single, don’t own a car, yet for all the walking I do I weigh more than I should. I also eat food that’s bad for me, enjoy awful 1980s Saturday cartoon shows more than I should, and own enough books to open a (small) library. I have an Office job I’m ambivalent about, and a part-time job selling books I love. (I love the job, not the books, I mean, I love some of the books, but not all of them, yes?). I am also a blog whore, and if I put as much effort into writing a book as I do writing my blog, I’d probably be the next Stieg Larsson.

Wait, scratch that, I want to be alive to enjoy being rich.

Anyway, here’s to the next year.

Happy Birthday to you
You live in a 400 square foot studio apartment
You watch too many crappy cartoons
and you should really walk more, 'cause you're not as young as you once were (I'm just sayin').

Mostly, just the Happy Birthday part: skip all work, go do something fun and eat you favorite dinner.
Smile at pretty women at random.

I was looking at the first few posts in this thread. It is surreal to me that there was already a "Frank doesn't post anymore" in-joke eight years ago. What have I done with my life??

Happy birthday to everyone whose birthday is August 9!
 
Posted by Hobbes (Member # 138) on :
 
Who is... Frank? Why is he important?
 
Posted by Malnurtured Snay (Member # 411) on :
 
Ah, August 9th. Damn you.

Anyway, so not much has changed: same apartment, now with more bookshelves, and more books. Same jobs. I'd say less hair, but I was shaving my head last year, so that's not really true, either. A few less pounds, so that's something.

See you all in a year.

Um: so let's see.

34 today.

Frank seemed surprised on Facebook that we have the same birthday. Clearly he keeps forgetting about this thread.

Working in development since April for one of the major universities in DC (2nd largest property owner in the city and one of the top private employers). Pretty awesome because the tuition benefit means I can get a masters degree (or multiple masters degrees) for free.

Ok, I'm a little drunk.
 
Posted by Jason Abbadon (Member # 882) on :
 
Happy Birthday- 34 must have been a good year for me as I cant recall anything about it.

Snay, Yahoo has a lovely video of a deet crashing head first into a motorcyclist today- check it out- it made me think of you.
