how could I have forgotten my own birthday?”

As perfect a Thursday 023

On some rare occasions, I post a celebratory note, or I ask, “see what I did there?” Other times, I will just favorite, or re-tweet Jeremy Danner, and suddenly I am followed by “fan artist extraordinaire Pixelkitties,” or who knows, “the Pinkie Pie of Rock Andrew W.K.

Twitter / Andrew W.K.: “@DavidProv @chris_m_hurt @Jeremy_Danner Holy cow! This party is growing by the minute! So many friends are showing up to rage and rampage!”

“61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me (Isaiah 61:1)
to bring good news to the poor;
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. . . .”

Happy Birthday, Pinkie Pie

“If this is a ‘farewell party’, why does the cake I picked up from Sugar-cube Corner say ‘Happy Birthday, Pinkie Pie’?”

“34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another:
just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.
35 By this all people will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another. (John 13:34-35)”

He’s gettin’ his own Show

Closed between Monday, December 22, 2013, and Wednesday, January 1, 2014, Johnson County Community College will reopen tomorrow. Monday, in my neighborhood, is when trash is collected, so I set my alarm for six in the morning in an attempt to restore the damage to my circadian rhythms. While I was awake for more daylight than I had for eight days, I did not go to bed until four this morning. Oh, well.

New Year’s Eve: Global revelers ring in 2014 with booms and flashes
“A massive, exuberant crowd of revelers from all over the world packed New York City streets to watch the crystal-covered ball in Times Square descend in a celebration of 2014’s arrival, capping off a global wave of festivities that also included a record-breaking fireworks …”

“17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Corinthians 5:17)”

While our friend Ra was hosting a party north of the river, Aaron and I visited a mutual friend, and watched Riddick, then Donnie Darko.

We watched the last half hour before the ball drop; Melissa Etheridge sang one of her hits, and followed with “Imagine,” where she shot it four times, and dragged it through a swamp, and hanged it up, and put its head on a pike.

Denton had decided against Ra’s party, so he, Beasley, and I watched The Nude Bombno, it was neither Showgirls, nor Striptease, nor Eyes Wide Shut — just the adaptation of Get Smart to the big screen.

Now is the time of year for annual retrospectives. Even HuffPost Weird News was once AOL Weird News / Why they changed it, I can’t say / (Arianna just liked it better that way).
