thanks. In the year i was born it was Black Friday.
For years we always celebrated my b-day on thanksgiving.
As a kid i thought it was cool that everyone was having a feast on my floating b-day.
Its still kinda nice thinking everyone is going shopping on black friday.

Sorry i don't have facebook.
I prefer to reamin anonymous. Fame has its price.
But seriously i really don't care for facebook, myspace, LiveJournal, etc.
Way too easy to gain personal info on those sites.
Plus i have an unusal last name so web searching it is all too easy.
I'm amazed at the personal info that is out there.
And not everything is removable.
Anyway i would have given ya a THUMBS UP if i could have.
Maybe someone else will do it for you in my honor.
