I am up at 8am on a Sunday because my jerkface dog keeps licking me directly in my ear.

Happy birthday!

Here's a little song called "I've Never Met You, But I Recognize Your Username and/or Commenting Style", and it goes a little something like this...

Happy birthday, J!

I didn't have time to get you something good, so here's a Youtube video of the Sega Saturn version of WWF In Your House.

I'm always seeing birthdays for people I don't know on my Google results, and it's like whatever, but today it was John, and I did a little double-take.

I might move to Georgia, actually, and if I do I hope I can buy you a beer. Happy Birthday! Thanks for all the @play columns, the great posts, the Roguelike Radio chats, and whatever's coming next! Good luck!

Thanks everyone. I have to remark, I was just on the Google homepage. Apparently they have code now that detects if its your birthday and changes the doodle to birthday cake with the tooltip "Happy Birthday (your first name)!", but before I realized that I thought "Okay, now this is going a bit too far."

In just before after the Birthday boy. Yes, Google already told me about it (something about us +ing each other), but I assumed you'd spend the day watching old '60s cartoons. Here's another.

I might move to Georgia,

Just ignore the flocks of ravens lining the roads making noises like "DOOOM DOOOM," and the creepy little girl who meets you at the state line who says "You'll be sorrrrry!"

Yup, as JHarris mentions, there's the flocks of ravens and the creepy little girl, and if that ain't enough to convince you, remember Randy Newman's even more dire warning:

"College men from LSU
Went in dumb, come out dumb too
Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes
Gettin' drunk every weekend at the barbecues..."

*shudder*

The most foreboding sign of all, however, has to be the large percentage of local restaurants who tune their dining room TVs in to Fox News. (And one Burger King I know of shows Glenn Beck's channel "The Blaze". It's creepy enough that I wonder if Rod Serling is somewhere on the premises narrating.)

Belated Happy Birthday! And many happy returns.

Literally the only places I've ever seen Fox News on a public television in NYC is every single diner in my neighborhood.

Happy birthday, JHarris! Still finding things to read thanks to your procedural generation tip the other day, so I owe you one!

Reaching 40 is a trick only really good roguelike players can achieve. Hope you had a good one!

Aw, happy happy!

I enjoyed 40 a lot, but my favorite birthday party was for 42.
