Happy Birthday, Eric!

Today is strausmouse‘s birthday. I’m not sure I’m allowed to say how old he is, because he is really quite ancient. This is hard for many people to believe because he acts much younger–say mid-40s, give or take a few years. But he doesn’t fool me for a second. In any event:


“Happy happy birthday, it happens every year. We eat a lot of brocolli1 and drink a lot of beer…”

1 This word was spelled intentionally wrong so that Eric had something to complain about regarding this post. It is my gift to you on this special day.
