37th Trip Around That Sun
Posted at 01:35 PM


WE’RE TAKING THE DAY OFF: The DDC is closed for the day due to “birthday festivities.” Cut us some slack. It’s one day out of the year, you know? We hit Jackass 3D last night at 12:01 and that got things going. Good, clean fun. Slept hard afterwards. Had to put pants on this morning to go look at shitty VW rigs. Embarrassing. We’ve got some shoplifting planned for the afternoon, as well as some Oliver Action for later on tonight. Maybe even a nice supper somewhere.

Glad as hell to have made it to 37. Weird ways. Whatever it takes. Thankful to be alive. Wondering about the cosmos. Wondering about “why” and “how” and “who” and “what the fuck?”

And, 37’s a bit of an odd number…both typographically and because it isn’t on a roulette wheel. There’s some odd space around that “7” character. Might be precursor to the kind of year ahead of me? Might not.

Know this, 37: I’m going to look you right square in the eye each and every day, all day. I’m not fucking around. Not with years 0-36 and certainly not with you. That goes for years 38-99, too. Be warned, future. Yep.

Let’s go. Year 37 starts today and we’re going for it.

Congrats! Hope you have a good one. Formula “44” for me this year. 10.11.10. Like some weird binary code. Libra forever motherfuckers!
