I'm So Glad We've Had This Time Together

It's my birthday again and about four hours of it will be spent in a meeting, just as in the past, tests or midterms seemed to home in on my birthday. I have many relatives also born in October, leading to oh-so-special combination birthdays...

Sincerely, though, I've always known how fortunate I am to have lived the life I have. I hope I've made the world a better place in my own small way. Feel free to guess my age in the comments based on this Bouchercon 2013 photo by Canadian author Cathy Ace.

What can you give me this year? Well, if you like comics, snappy dialogue, and rapid-fire pop culture references, join me in contributing to the Indiegogo campaign to resurrect Javier Grillo-Marxuach's Middleman. Not only will it mean a brand new graphic novel, bringing together the classic comic and ABC Family TV continuities, but the novel will also be performed by the cast of TV series: Matt Keeslar, Natalie Morales, Brit Morgan, Jake Smollett, Mary Pat Gleason, and Alan Smyth, with special guest Amber Benson. The campaign reached its basic goal today, but if it reaches $60,000 by November 10, sections of the novel will be in color, Wizard of Oz-style.

Happy birthday, Gerald!

I feel your pain on the whole "combination birthday" thing. My younger brother's birthday is 2 days before mine.

I'll refrain from guessing your age, since I already know that answer. (Hint to those inclined to guess: Gerald So premiered in the same year as the greatest (in my opinion) PI show of all time.)

Have a happy birthday, Gerald!

Gerald So said...

Thank you, Bill and John.

Happy birthday, Gerald. And I'll guess that John's favorite PI show was Barnaby Jones...
