Howdy all. Just wanted to give a shout out to all my friends on the 'Vine today that it is my birthday today. And contrary to what many of you may think today, I honestly am having nothing go on today sadly. No calls for work today so I'm just here at my lonesome enjoying the day so far. Why am I not celebrating today? Well mostly its because I unfortunately have the misfortune of having my birthday on a Thursday this year, plus for reasons beyond my control my family unfortunately isn't free to celebrate until the weekend. Nonetheless I am enjoying this day so far even if it does seem like any other day. Celebrations will come on Saturday no doubt and am hoping to get a couple of nice comics related gifts (Kick Ass 2 HC and Walking Dead Seasons 1 and 2 DVD collections please), and tomorrow I am no doubt going to enjoy Dredd 3D in theatres with my re-admit pass I was given a month ago. But as I just settle down and enjoy this special day like any other, I cannot help but reflect on my life so far and be thankful for all that I have had in such a short amount of time (33 years young here people, which by the way makes me think of something here. Consider this...40 is the new 20. So does that mean that 30 is the new 10? Does that mean that 33 is the new 13 and I'm going through adolescent pains again? I sure hope not...it was bad enough going through those the first time. Anywhoooooooo). Probably the greatest thing I can reflect on that is relevant to the 'Vine is...today also marks the 30th anniversary of when I first got into comics. Yes, believe it or not I STILL remember my first comic back in 1982. Sure, there's been periods where I was off of them and all but still, whether continuously or haphazardly, I've been a comic book geek for about a third of a century. And that is something I'm truly thankful for as I blow out thirty three invisible candles this day. Cheers to all you great friends on the 'Vine here!
