A birthday post…


Shark-Fu & C-Money & Spider-Man a fabillion years ago

Today is my birthday…hooray!

I’m 39 years old, so I now I have a year to prepare my Soul Food Extravaganza 40th Birthday Realness Ball.

Lawd, the pressure!

Anyhoo…

This birthday is going to rock!

I’m going to a protest at Senator Blunt’s office in Clayton…because he needs to know that his amendment allowing any employer to refuse to cover any health related thing through insurance simply by stating a moral objection was wrong when he filed it, is wrong today, and will never be right.

If you live in or near St. Louis you should join me!

And then, I get to watch the Blues take on the Bruins…from my couch-based area while eating apple pie, but still.

And then…


… C-Money and a bitch are headed to New York, NY!

***hit play***

We’re going to see The Agony and The Ecstasy of Steve Jobs…and eat yummy food…and drink a cocktail or two or three…and eat some more.

Fantabulous.

Toodles!

Happy birthday!

Bruins fan, here. I'm kind of nervous--they haven't played too well. If they lose, I'd rather it be a *good* loss, you know?

Happy Birthday!

Though I've been a Bruins fan roughly as long as you've been alive, I will nod in quiet approval, should your beloved Blues prevail tonight. And, given how awful the Bruins been in the month of February, they may very well give you a birthday present. :-)

Happy birthday and a shake of the locs to boot. I've seen Mike Daisey perform a few times in DC and he is always a hoot, even if he doesn't always do a "fair and balanced" job. I also absolutely adore the Public Theater. They do fantabulous work. Hope you have a good time.

Ah, Don...

If you've got confidence problems I feel sorry for you son...

...but I've got 99 problems and being black ain't one.

Toodles, asshole!

Pam!! Shark-Fu!! Happy birthday. I finally found soul-food related goodness in this uber-white health-conscious city (Madison, WI). It must have been a sign from above... a sign from you. LOL. I hope you are able to get some for yourself and hopefully the journey to it will be easier than mine was.. I'm glad you had a fab time in NYC. I hope to go there someday.

I thought you'd appreciate this song.
