Song of the Day: 'Happy Birthday' by Altered Images


I'd be mortified to be 50 today if I weren't so acutely aware how lucky I am to have lived this long. Between the AIDS epidemic, f**king cancer and a fluke case of meningitis, I've lost more people before they even reached the half-century mark than I care to remember. So before this gets too somber, I'll just keep trying to adhere to the adage that is meant to be funny but is so true: Live every day like it's your last, because one day it will be. xo


My Kenyan father planted this in the local paper in case I ever wanted to run for president ...


My grandmother ended it all when she turned the big 5-0 ... I figure I'll just ride it out!

Dude, Happy Birthday! I'm going in for a colonoscopy in a couple of minutes. Welcome to the 50s! Twenty ahead of you in ten days.

Happy Birthday!

I think we lucked out being born when we were. We're in a kind of age bubble where each time we hit that "life is over" mark, it gets pushed back and our age is celebrated and rebranded as "The New Something"

And what a great present your col du jour, Dominic Thiem, gave you!
