    And a very happy birthday to ex-big league outfielder Terrence Long, who turns 8 today!

    What are you guys doing to celebrate the big day? Don't piss this one away. By 2012, gas will be so expensive you'll have no discretionary income for holidays such as this.

    For some ridiculous reason, to which, however, I've no desire to be disloyal,
    Some person in authority, I don't know who, very likely the Astronomer Royal,
    Has decided that, although for such a beastly month as February, twenty-eight days as a rule are plenty,
    One year in every four his days shall be reckoned as nine-and-twenty.

    The man has me working today. He obviously doesn't value this day like I do.

    I should be turning 8 today. Sted, I'm turning 32 next week.

    Stupid unfairness.

    That's bullshit, IJAG. I'd write your congressperson.

    I blame my mom. She apparently didn't want to be a mom yet, so she held me in for an extra week.

    Looks like my second nephew is going to be a Leap Year baby. I told my brother to beware of those asshole newspaper reporters that will be trying to use him for their awful stories in a few years.

    And do you still celebrate Mother's Day with her?

    Half-heartedly, at best.

    Well, at the very least, I hope you get an award for your effort. Because, obviously, someone wasn't thinking about what you deserved eight years ago today. It takes a big person to tuck those feelings aside.

    This was last night's dinner discussion. Why couldn't we just tack on a June 30 once every four years? Who the fuck wants to extend February?
