Birthday Recap

All in all, it was a really nice 51st birthday. We went out for a fun dinner at Carrabba’s (which is Arizona’s answer to Italian food) and ran into some groups of women in the area for a Breast Cancer fundraising walk. Their devotion to the cause brought tears to my wife’s eyes.

Got some fun gifts including a Sponge Bob wall clock. My family feeds my Sponge Bob habit. I think he’s a funny cartoon character and was somewhat dismayed over the WSJ piece that connects gay men to Sponge Bob. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that). I enjoy watching the cartoon with my daughter and sharing a good laugh—what more can I say?

Not related, but I have stepped up my efforts to build my own TV network. I am roping Mike into the deal and will have him create the music/radio channels. Mike has far more eclectic taste in music than I do (which is not saying much). I still listen to Jerry Butler (the original Iceman), so what does that say about me?
