Happy birthday to me...

This post is more than 2 years old.

I look like a monkey and I smell like one too!

Yes, today is my birthday, and I really do feel quite old - 33. Although all my presents were Star Wars toys, so what does that say about me?

nothing, just says that you are old, most likely have some gray's, ankles may hurt a bit in the morning, changing schedules is prolly tough, prolly a little set in your ways, wish you were 18 again, and ... well, its all good, i have only 2 months until my 33rd :)
