Happy B-day Octo. Do you still have the hat?

Johnny Sweatpants said...

Happy boithday Octopunk! I was certain you would OD on heroin before 40 so congratulations on proving me wrong!

Now email me your address so I can send you one of those damn cds!

Good lord, and to think I used to look up to Octopunk for his "cool" style! You people all realize that he's wearing and official Indiana Jones hat, right?

Happy birthday, buddy, your present is having the best year of your adult life =)

Happy birthday!

I love the hat!

Jordan said...

Happy birthday, you impossible-to-reach LEGO-hoarder!

JPX said...

Oddly enough, Julie looks exactly the same 25 years later.

It's an Indiana Jones hat, people!

Jordan said...

I think we all agree about the hat.

Especially since Indy would wear a University of Chicago sweatshirt, not a Harvard sweatshirt.

Man that picture just reeks of the 80's doesn't it? "Don't you forget about me..."

"I say la,
lalla la la
lalla la la
lalla la lullalla lalla la la"

Jordan said...

"rain keep falling...rain keep falling down, down..."

("Later I, the little guy singing this song, will loudly denounce it even though it's our only hit")

JPX said...

er, where the hell is Octopunk? I seem to be asking that a lot lately!

Johnny Sweatpants said...

I heard he's combing the beach with a metal detector before heading off to Bingo night at the old folks home.

(I mean come on - 11 comments and not a single over-the-hill jab? Shame on you. Each and every one of you...)

i vote octo is too busy having a fabulous birthday to even look at the blog.

and johnny, those of us already past 40 don't really get to make over-the-hill jabs. it's up to you youngsters to rake octo over the coals.

i'm the youngest one here, right?

so to me, you're all just in one big "old" lump. octo just happens to be the flag-bearer today.

Whirlygirl said...

50, I seem to remember a post about you turning 30, so I'm the youngest one here, except for Anes, so I guess your just part of the old lump too.

AC said...

50p, burn; whirly, double burn!

Octopunk said...

Thanks, everybody. Yep, I'm old. All I'm planning for the weekend is to lurk by the window so I can tell those kids to get off my lawn.

I lament my recent lack of sufficient blogging, but these days I'm either working, babytending or enjoying the brief spots during which I have to do neither. It's all pretty damn great, though. My 40th b-day scorecard is feeling good. Now all I have to do is lose weight and create a hugely popular animated tv show. No prob!
