As birthdays go, mine was great. I read, I relaxed, I napped. How is that different than anyother day you may ask? Well, it’s not. The only difference is that it was my birthday and that made it just a little bit better. I don’t know about you, but birthdays just make everything a little bit better.
I guess two things make birthdays special for me. The first is my gf who lets me be me all the time, but lets me be even more me on my birthday. Last year she gave me 30 days of Ed as a birthday present. This year she took me out to eat a huge meal at Buffet Toji, then to see Constantine.
Dinner was great (and cheap since birthday meals are FREE!) and the movie wasn’t as bad as I expected it would be. Some of the effects were cool and Midnight, played by Djimon Hounsou, was the coolest character by far. Based on the comic book Hellblazer, Constantine is a supernatural detective from the UK who has a less than palatable past including stints in prison for child murder. In typical Hollywood fashion, the movie version is about as offensive as a bowl of vanilla icecream. Luckily, they found the perfect inanimate object to play the Americanized John Constantine, Keanu Reeves.
