Re: It's my birthday, and I'll cry if I want to
I tend to get depressed on my birthday, thinking back on all the fuckups I've committed over the last 60-odd years, which is why I always preferred to take the day off. It's not been as bad since moving to a different time zone 23 years ago, since now I usually miss the exact hour (8:13pm Central Standard Time) until after it's passed.

Larry: I'll take the brunette!
Curly: I'll take the Black and Tan!
