Thirty Two

Today I am thirty two years old. That seems like a lotta years to me. But thanks to my lovely wife, I won't be thinking too much about it while I'm spending quality time with my new iPod!

Happiest of Happies!

I love presents that come with a bonus gift - what a fantastic hat!

I think they should make all party hats square like that one! Have a great birthday Mr. Thirty Two!

Happy Birthday to you!

(p.s. Any gray hairs? I just turned 33 and I found THREE OF THEM yesterday)

Happy birthday!
The problem of being in your thirties is easily solved by celebrating your (N)th Annual 29th Birthday instead. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! My hubby wants an iPOD so badly...maybe christmas. Enjoy your day!

Happy birfday dude!

Happy Birthday! I hope the day's good to you. You certainly started it off right.

I'm going to be 32 in March and the number is giving me a little bit of trouble. I'm hoping that in the coming months 32 and I will come to some sort of understanding. But dude, if 32 comes bearing such great gifts it will def not sting as much!

Happy Birthday dude!!! I am so jealous of the iPOD...The hat reminds of the Burger King crowns for some reason...

Posted by: Sue at December 5, 2004 12:42 PM

Happy Birthday! And 32? Bahhh! You're still a baby! hehe. As for the iPod head gear, I think you may be on to something there!

Oh and thanks for reminding me what I want for Christmas! lol

Posted by: csm at December 5, 2004 5:38 PM

Wow, it'd be cool to be the 32nd comment. Maybe if I type slow enough, someone else would be 31...

Any case, happy birthday. Here's to ten more years before the meaning of life. :)

My grandmother says you're just a young boy in her book.

Posted by: alektra at December 5, 2004 6:15 PM


iPods are the shizbit. Luckay guy.

Posted by: Maureen at December 5, 2004 6:28 PM

Happy Birthday you are just begining life enjoy it baby and may there be many more you handsome devil you!!

Posted by: Vickie aka Sweet n Sassy at December 5, 2004 7:44 PM

Happy, happy birthday Chris! I hope you had a fabulous day!

Posted by: Em at December 5, 2004 8:26 PM

Thirty-two is NOT old. And plus, anyone who wears an iPod box as a hat is young at heart.

And also, what a great gift. I want one.

Posted by: DeAnn at December 5, 2004 8:58 PM

Yay!! Happy Birthday!!

(If the number of your years start to bother you, just start referring to your birthdays as anniversaries with your iPod. So for 35? Happy 3 year anniversary!!)

Posted by: bmh at December 5, 2004 9:14 PM

Happy Birthday!!!

You don't look a day over 8.

Posted by: Dawn (webmiztris) at December 5, 2004 9:26 PM

I can't believe I'm actually posting a happy birthday message ON someone's birthday--usually it ends up being a couple of days late. So now I can say whole-heartedly, "Happy Birthday!"

That's one hell of a hat, by the way.

Posted by: Casey at December 5, 2004 9:52 PM

HAPPY 32nd CHRIS!! My ipod and I have been inseperable for about 4 months now.

Posted by: amy at December 5, 2004 9:53 PM

Um ... Chris? I think you're supposed to put only the headphones on your head, not the whole iPod. But it's your birthday, so whatever fries your potato chips, I reckon ...

Hope it was FABoolous.

Posted by: Broad at December 5, 2004 10:13 PM

Happy Birthday Chris!

Posted by: Pink Sun Drops at December 5, 2004 11:47 PM

Happy b'day!!!

It is about damn time you got an iPod, and now yours is better than mine! I swear I am going to send you my 15 gig in the mail and have you load me up some music since the CD you promised to send me is NEVER going to get mailed!!! You know I love you even while leaving you a totally inappropriate comment.

I hope this year is the best yet!!!

Posted by: goodsnake at December 5, 2004 11:52 PM

happy birthday chris ... hope your birthday was great :) ...

Posted by: Rosie at December 5, 2004 11:52 PM

Happy Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday Chris! I would actually write something that's cute and that rhymes, but I just don't have the energy. The sentiment is the same though -- hope you had an excellent birthday! Yay for iPods! =D

Posted by: Jennie at December 6, 2004 3:41 AM

so very choice brah..... I gotta get one!

Posted by: tesco at December 6, 2004 6:25 AM

Uh oh. I am scared. We're going to lose the cactus to hours spent putting thousands of songs into the Ipod, and , and, what would we do!!!!!!
*breathing into a paper sack*

ok, am better now. I am sorry. I was selfish and lost it there for a minute!
Happy Birthday!
That rocks!
(and I am completely jealous!)

Posted by: Jade at December 6, 2004 7:44 AM

I was kind of curious if/when you were going to join in the portable-mp3 craze, with your well-known love of music...I can see a lot of time being spent with this new toy. I want one, too!!! :)

Posted by: Zandria at December 6, 2004 7:47 AM

Ha! Happy Birthday, pup. You are still the cutest geekiest of geekdom I've ever seen. I want an iPod too!

Posted by: wlfldy at December 6, 2004 7:52 AM

Sorry I'm late... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!

Posted by: amber at December 6, 2004 8:34 AM

Happy Birthday, boy!

Posted by: Tonya at December 6, 2004 9:58 AM

Happy Belated Birthday! My son was born one day after you...of course, he's only 4, so he'll have to content himself with a Spongebob plug-and-play game and other toys...instead of an IPOD!

Posted by: Randi at December 6, 2004 10:10 AM

Happy Belated Birthday. How does one EVER get 51 gawd (and dont you dare bother commenting to all of mine...really). Your wife has great taste (of course I'm talking about the iPod - did you think I was calling you hot...AGAIN? ok, maybe a little, but I think your wife's gotta have it going on...)

Posted by: Lily at December 6, 2004 11:33 AM

at 32, things were (finally) just starting to REALLY turn around...its get SO SO SO much better after turning 32. Congrats!! (and my mom also couldnt wait for the elevator...had me in the car on the ride over!). But I have to say you are still too young to write "plumb tuckered out"...southern or not.

Posted by: Lily at December 6, 2004 11:37 AM

*burries head in shame*

Happy belated birthday Mister Cactus!

Posted by: Sweety at December 6, 2004 12:05 PM

Whoa, I'm late... Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a great day and enjoy your new iPod. :) You're going to have to tell us what you put on there.

Posted by: Carla at December 6, 2004 12:09 PM

happy birthday from a fellow Sag! don't sweat 32, it's 35 that'll get ya!

Posted by: monique at December 6, 2004 1:55 PM

Happy happy. Glad you're having fun with the series of effects and your iPod :)

Posted by: Tara at December 6, 2004 2:20 PM

And now I feel like the worst friend ever that I didn't wish you (or realize, even that it WAS!) a happy birthday. So. Happy belated. And then some. :)

Posted by: Jessa at December 6, 2004 2:54 PM

I go and have one shitty weekend, don't check your blog (or anyone's for that matter) and you have a birthday! Many happy returns!

Posted by: Amber at December 6, 2004 6:54 PM

I'm 9 1/2 years older than you, youngster. ;-)

Posted by: Kelley at December 6, 2004 9:20 PM

Happy Birthday!! (Late, oops. That's what I get for not blogging on the weekends!)

Posted by: Sheryl at December 6, 2004 10:15 PM

Bet you're like a kid with a new toy...
wait, you ARE!
Congrats... bet it's rockin'!

Posted by: Ana at December 6, 2004 11:51 PM

Hey! Been reading you for awhile but have never posted, anyway Happy Belated Birthday, hope it was a good one ;o)

Posted by: Leslie at December 7, 2004 8:06 AM

Happy Birthday you loon, couldnt send out better belated wishes to any other of my fellow freaks if I tried or wanted to (but I dont, you are getting them all today :)

Posted by: stinkerbell at December 7, 2004 12:53 PM

Happy late Birthday, Chris!

Ya big baby!!!

And congrats on the iPod! I'm way jealous!

Hope it was a good one!

Posted by: Joe at December 7, 2004 10:29 PM

Man! I am SO jealous! I want an Ipod BAD! Darn it!

Lucky man on his 32nd Birthday...glad you were born! Happy Belated Birthday...and you remind me of my kids, playing with the box rather than the item that came in it! *grin*

Posted by: Gypsy at December 8, 2004 12:46 AM

CRAP AND A HALF I missed your birthday. Goddamnit.

In my defense I don't think I've ever been as busy as I have been this week. Let's just say that I've spent more time than anyone who has a fulltime job shoudl at work - and I only work part time even...

Now I know this still shouldn't excuse my missing your birthday because it was on Sunday, therefore happening before my busy week started. But in my defense....

Aww screw it. I just haven't been to your site in about a week and I missed your birthday and had no idea it even was your birthday and I feel like a wank. Sorry :( But glad to read that it was a good birthday :-D and...


yeah... ;)

Posted by: Tjej at December 8, 2004 9:10 AM

Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday to You
Happy Birthday dear iPod-Box-Hat-Boy,
Happy Birthday to You!
Curious to know the first 25 songs you loaded...
