You know what Im getting Steve for his birthday? (I can talk about him like hes not here because he staunchly refuses to read the site) A giant, LA-flavored, kings chalice of SHUT THE HELL UP. Lest you think this is a less-than-nice birthday present, understand that this guy would be doing the same to me were it my birthday.

Id like to drive down south to visit him today and take him for a beer, but the responsibility of having to work at the Dime tonight is keeping me here. Weak, huh? Ah well, Ill have a beer in hs honor without him.

Happy Birthday, old man.
