On January 8th, I feel compelled to give a shout out to the many awesome people having birthdays today: Elvis Presley, David Bowie, Soupy Sales, Butterfly McQueen, Bill Graham, Dave Eggers, Stephen Hawking, Little Anthony (of the Imperials), and Robbie Kreiger.

Oh, and I saved one big shout-out for the inimitable Skycat, one my dearest friends and one of the most amazing people I know. Happy birthday Skycat! Next year we hope to be part of your birthday festivities (uh, can we bring the baby?).
