Thought (s) for the (birth) day.



1.First off, thank you all for the birthday wishes!

2.Secondly, thank you just as much for your insight and comments below. I mean that sincerely.
I don't know what's gotten into me, lately. I'm already kind of prone to pity parties, but this one was a doozy. It's crazy. I'm thankfully coming out of it a bit. It did help to post that, even though I figured I shouldn't. It's something I think about all the time, but never really talk about, and that makes it all the worse.

3.Thirdly, ahem...the theme of this year seems to be public humiliation. Tonight some friends of mine invited me out for drinks and karaoke. They had a stated mission of "getting me drunk", since I'm rarely drunk. I usually have high tolerance for liquor. Anyway I won't go into the horrible details, but let's just say it wasn't pretty. I'm totally mortified...and still a bit drunk now. Oh, and I didn't make it to karaoke. Anyway, I'm planning to be hung over the rest of my birthday, but what the hell right?

When it's your birthday, you can have whatever kind of party you want. You want a pity party, go for it.

Take some ibuprofen and watch something mindless on the television.

Be glad that you did not get around to karaoke -- somebody could have filmed it and it could have gone viral on YouTube.

Go out and buy something beautiful for your home & throw any book, article of clothing, or useless friend that makes you feel like shit into the trash.

Happy birthday -- I'm guessing its a tad belated.

We could come round and all of us suck the helium from your balloons.

That is not a euphemism, by the way.

Gatorade, greasy food, and advil will ease the pain.

I have a big bday coming up in 2 weeks and I am having my own mini meltdown....I understand.

Jason--Happy birthday! (Belated? Or today? I'm not sure.)

I'll echo the greasy food suggestion. That's the only thing that works for me. I don't even thinks it makes my hangovers go away, but I like to eat it, so...

And enjoy Muriel's Wedding. Maybe that will help too.

Happy to a new orbit. Best wishes

Scrambled, toast and sausages. Go big on the sausages. Works for me re: hang-over.

Karaoke isn't my thing either; unless we discuss that one Christmas party where I humiliated myself with "Like A Virgin."

Happy b-day, again; all good wishes!

Mortified?

And you didn’t even get to the Karaoke?

What on earth did you do?

I want to hear details later on.

Also I’m two birds with one stone kind of guy…so…Go get a greasy road whore!

P.S. WV = uncloger

Sat in front of an empty comments screen for 20 minutes trying to come up with what to say.

I finally realized how lame it was to comb my experiences to comment on your experiences!

So instead - Thank You from the bottom of my heart for doing this blog. Your amazing observations and writing, often make me laugh and sometimes make me cry. It's a perfect blog written by a perfect man. Happy Birthday, my friend.

Happy late birthday from a fellow perpetual singleton.

Karaoke: is a dangerous situation.

Hangovers: Drug yourself to sleep till it's over. Then have some water and some Camilia Grill. (or Clover, but you may be tempted to start the cycle again.)

I am also very happy to have found this collection of thoughts and randomness you publish.

You might meet someone nice in Virtual Blogger Rehab.

mrpeenee said...

Wait, why are all these people (except the dirty pirate) allowing you to get away with drawing a curtain of discretion over your humiliation? I want details. Now.

MOC Blogger said...

I was going to send you a romantic Flannery O'Connor poem about Tom Ford's beige avocado - all your likes, right? - but I didn't have your address in post-diluvian New Orleans.

Have a wonderful (insert fake number) birthday to one of my FAVORITE bloggers in all of the internets.

Oh, Happy Birthday. I've been away from the computer all week because my mother was visiting...which is a rare occurrence that I must cherish. I haven't read the pity post yet. Just know, Jason...you have a world of fans on the internet. Which may not be enough sometimes, but it's a force to be reckoned with! We love you. I'm off to read the rest.

And karaoke must just suck.
Jill

Stephen said...

Happy Belated Birthday. I hope I look as good as you when I am your age!

Elizabeth said...

Can I just echo what FelixinHollywood said? So much charm, sweetness, humor, and self deprecation in one lovely man.... and you write like a dream.

Also, mortifying details please!

jason said...

You all are too sweet, seriously!

So were those drinks...and let me tell you that ain't good on an empty stomach. umm....you get the idea.

David Toms said...

Happy Happy Birthday! I suppose this is a bit late, but find the worst greasy spoon in town, and walk straight on back to home! Taka a bottle of Vitamin B and C and a gallon of water and go back to bed
