Gang Party

...when age is an indivisible number

Last year I started what I had hoped would become a tradition. As I'm not one of those people to throw a birthday party for myself, but because Sam was coming up last year for my birthday and I wanted to have a big event anyhow, I finessed a group birthday party. My birthday (which is today) last year was on a Saturday, so off we went and had a big party. I think there were about a dozen guys who were Aries and so it worked out well.

Last night's party at English John's house was for four of us in particular: Me (4/3), Fred the Plumber (4/12), English John (4/19) and Donovan (3/22). There were several others there whose birthdays were in the vicinity, so we celebrated those, too.

No presents were supposed to be given, but Mike & Alberto showed up with a little somethin'-somethin' (which they usually do, but this time their somethin'-somethin' didn't involve the need for condoms :). I ended up with a double shot-glass with the word “DIVA” on it. People seemed to think it apropos. Well, screw them, I'm better than that shit. Ooops.......

I like this idea of groups of birthdays celebrated in one sitting. At 41 years old, I suppose it's just a little too much to have all the attention heaped on me. Or, there's just so much loving attention to go around in my group of friends that sharing the wealth doesn't cost a thing.

Happy Birthday! It just started to rain, we have a fire in the fireplace, and I'm cooking dinner. I'm filling my shot glass with some fine single malt scotch. Cheers to you and your peers!
