thanks guy. i wish it could be a happier birf for me today, but my father's been in the hospital for over a week with bacterial meningitis. i'm fine, i had my meningitis shot some time ago and the bacterial kind isn't contagious. my father just takes really bad care of himself and this shit just hit him out of the blue last week. so i've been just feeling really shitty lately with that heaped on top of all the shit i normally have to deal with. i'm gonna try to go out and have fun tonight, and probably consume a very large amount of vodka to get my mind off shit. thanks again for the BIRF wishes.
