9/11/2006

In better news...

Over the last few years there's been a certain hullabaloo surrounding todays date. But no matter the opinions, the politics, the controversies, or the conspiracies, today will always make me think one thing.


Today is a day to remember and hold close the people we love and respect. Cheers to them all!

Including me dear old da, happy birthday.

Take: 16

You're right mizfit, it was a tragedy. A real chance for the govt's of the 'free' west to do something truly Great. Instead we got together and formed a lynch squad. Rightly? Don't know yet...

Um, no, it wasn't my b'day on the 9th. I think India must be like Oz, it was my dad's birfday (he can't pronouce 'th') on 11 Sept, 11/9 to us peoples.

'tragic old spinster', so you're turning what? 80, 90 years old?

Yeah JLee, I like to think it is!

He is of course a crazy old dutchman who thinks terrorists flew planes into buildings in order to ruin his B'day. I think he was OK with it once he realised he was going to still get presents. Life goes on...

Happy Birthday for the 5th JLee! I agree, it's simply marvelous to have these virgins running around.

Dutch people like to stick their fingers in dykes. I know. I read the tale of Hans Brinker who saved his village by sticking his finger in a hole in a dyke...

Here's to many more dyke plugging years! Happy birfday!

Ha! I've been to the non-=existant Hans Brinker's statue near Spaarndam which is enscribed:

Opgedragen aan onze jeugd als een huldeblijk aan de knaap die het symbool werd van de eeuwigdurende strijd van Nederland met Katje.


Roughly translates to...

Dedicated to our youth, to honour the boy who symbolises the perpetual struggle of the Dutch with pussy.

I'll tell my dad that a virtual robot clown passes on his birthday salutations. He won't enjoy it, but I'll do it.

I guess the pic does seem a little abstract but seeing as my dad has been put on a glutton free diet recently and would chew his own arm off to get a piece of birthday cake it makes perfect sense to me.

"glutton-free diet" or "gluten-free diet"? either one will work I suppose?

Mizfit, ahhhhh 24, 24 was fantastic. Old enough to have some understanding of the world and young enough to ignore the pitfalls on the way to your dreams. Wonderful time.

Personally I like the power and respect one feels in your early 30's but 24 was brillant.

Enjoy it!
