I can't believe I got the scoop on JohnK with this one. He must be getting a bbig massage or something. Think we should do a safety check on him?

Anyway, happy birthday to our photo snapping, square room loving, Axiom homecoming fostering, Olive Garden scarfing friend. Cheers!

The real date for Patriot's Day Holiday in Massachusetts is today, you old revolutionary, you. You're the first person I ever met online that I got to know in person (and didn't have sex with!) See, you're way luckier than you knew!

Happy Birthday to one of the really Good Guys!

Happy Birthday, Mark!!!

Thanks for making me laugh everyday!!

You are like a clown. Without the make-up. And all the kids around. But still with the balloon animals.


Wait, I'm starting to get creeped out now.

As long as he is not a mime. I hate those guys. Especially the French ones with the stripes and the funny hats. No offence to the French, just French mimes.

Luckily, Mark is nothing like a mime, although he does have trouble getting out of his HT box. Hmmmmmm?

Does anyone here know how to make balloon animals? We got a bunch of those balloons, but I couldn't do a whole lot with them.

Start with very small animals. It's easier to stretch the neck of the balloon around them to get them inside.

Once you have the small balloon tricks down, you can start working your way up to balloon humans.

Not only can I make use of said macros, Harmony has codes for older, professional and esoteric equipment in my edit rack that the MX700 NEVER had.

Murph, should Joyce email you a .PDF of the invoice or would you rather have a snail-mail printed copy? grin

UPS should be here soon with the rack shelves I needed to finish this install!

but do you have one of these for your remote? laugh



I need to take an update pic because it's done!

I had a thought about keeping this 'Mark Birthday' thread going for as long as possible with at least one daily post. Guess it wasn't a very original idea.

Or 365 (leap year) days of belated birthday greetings.

Actually, I think keeping your birthday thread as your Vatican Dumpster is kinda cool.

Murph, should Joyce email you a .PDF of the invoice or would you rather have a snail-mail printed copy? grin

UPS should be here soon with the rack shelves I needed to finish this install!


Sure, just send it to my Tacoma address and mark it, "Care of Tom."

I went to get the grill's propane tank filled on Saturday afternoon, so I wouldn't have to smell sacrificed cow throughout the house in the morning. The weather's been awesome!

I went to our local warehouse store, around the back, where the auto service is. There was no one there waiting, so someone got right to it. Another minivan pulled up beside me. A man, a coupe of years younger than I got out, opened the back of his minivan, and took out his tank.

Man: I was here this morning and there were 8 people ahead of me, so I left.
Bob: Well, he's almost finished filling mine, so you picked a good time.
Man: Picked a good time. Ya, two trips here today. Pain in the ass.
Bob: When you were 22, did you ever, for one minute, imagine yourself on a beautiful Saturday in April, going to get propane, for the second time that day, at 5 o'clock-------in a minivan------knowing there are several people back home timing you?

It was telling that he mustered merely a pained guffaw, but the woman waiting her turn next to us nearly fell over. She was driving a Jag.

Seriously guys, how could you let down 'mer'can mandom and allow this to happen to you? Mark and I have valid excuses, but YOU!?!

Oops! Gotta go. Timer just went off and I gotta go out to the grill and fetch Bandit's ribeye.

If this thread continues long enough, we'll see the searchbots perusing it, like they always check out The Beer Thread.

It's Mark's Birthday continuum.

MarkSJohnson once had a birthday
And he had all his friends over to play.
He was just about to tell them
As he coughed up yellow phlegm
That he was too sick to host the soiree.

Ya, ya, ya. They're "supposed to" evoke the natural world. Well, passing wind is just as natural as snow in winter, right?

5/7/5 is limiting enough w/o nixing gas.

I don't know. I am new to this. I read about the seasons on wiki so I figured it must be true. The second one I was pandering to the beatnik crowd.

Oh, so it WAS manic depressive and suicidal. Cool! Beatniks are the godfathers of all things punk, goth and emo.

Edit: Look! We actually hijacked Mark's Birthday thread. And he's a week closer to 50 than when this thread started!

Can you just imbed that phrase into your posts, like your insect man face was? Better yet, can you somehow imbed it into Fred's posts?

50 weeks away from 50 years. Gee, I feel like I finally have a purpose around here---a daily purpose. Please forgive me if I overlook birthday wishes for any of you over the next, whaddid I say, of yeah, 50 weeks. I can get kinda horse-blindered with these sorts of commitments.

Sorry, I was distracted because it's "Setting Day" here. It overshadows all.

FYI, Setting Day is the day before lobster season when fishermen put out all their traps. They can't haul them until tomorrow. They always need extra help on the first day so it can be a big community event. I haven't been out in years but it's both hard work and lots of fun. Beers open on the last trip back to the wharf (or perhaps earlier) and by 3:00 in the afternoon when everyone is back (and assuming nobody drowned,)it pretty much looks like this.

Annual singing of "The Lobster Song."
Warning: Language is definitely not suitable for work. Unless, of course, your job is a lobster fisherman.

So you can see Mark, why we had to take a day off here from your Birthday season.

We're not counting pages, Ben. The goal is to keep it going at least several days a week until he turns fifty. With all that attention, he'll have nothing to bitch about on December 21st when he realizes no one is getting another birthday, ever.

If the world does not end before next April 19th, we will ignore his actual birthday. Well, that was MY long term plan, anyway.

No one's THAT hungry. (Sorry, Mark, it was like a pinata and I was blindfolded, holding a stick.)

Well, I am incredibly embarrassed to have missed the actual day, but we should still be close enough for a highly belated "HAPPY B-DAY" my friend!!!!

I hope all is going well there.

I saw that Bob mentioned he was thinking of you a few posts back. Then I started thinking about Bob thinking about you. Then I got a headache and had to take a nap.

Since numerical accuracy seems to have been temporarily suspended here in the Axiom Zone, may I be the first to wish you a Happy 2013 Birthday?

I take this step with careful consideration to assure this tread gets bumped, but more importantly, just to be safe on the off chance those Mayan guys using tea leaves and stones 20,000 years ago are correct about the world ending in December.

Ray, I'm too lazy too look up "the facts," but I'll bet, at our ages, we have consumed > 16 tons of food in our lifetimes. Gross! Well, I mean, 'cause there were almost that many tons of, ummm, consequences. Eww!

Jus' do'n my job, man.

And for the record, there's nothing wrong with "coloured" feet.
For eons they've been donned by coloured people, with no apparent ill effect.

Speaking of "coloured," is there a Canadian version of MS Word? Anytime I spell it that way, spellcheck castigates me.

You know, Mark, when you finally do turn 50, you will become socially invisible, publicly discounted, and otherwise marginalized, therefore, I will no longer be able to associate with you, except surreptitiously.

My attentions will be, quite naturally, forced to focus elsewhere. Isn't Tom the next one to turn 50?

Whew. I thought I'd feel different at 50.

Tom is about a 1/4 of a year younger than me.

Good one!

Wow, that soon eh? I've got little time to waste, then.

Maybe you can coach Tom on being B.S.'ed (Birthday Stalked).

(I'm merely doing what AARP does to EVERYONE on their 49th birthday.)

Mark! Mark!

I've been at a loss about what to give you for your 50th birthday. I was paging through some old threads and there it was!

Perfect! a Blu-ray of "Brokeback Mountain" and a sixer of Killian's Red.

I wish I had been around back in 2006 for your "Funny or Offensive?" thread, but I wasn't gay that year.

"Funny or Offensive?" Ha! I don't understand. Aren't they ssymbiotic?

Skip the movie, upsize the beer to a twofer of Budwiser and get him one of these so he doesn't fall off the couch getting up after the beer is all gone. smile

So is it your birthday yet Mark?
Seems like it's always your birthday.

You are kind of like the Philippines of the Axiom board world. They celebrate Christmas season from early September until the Feast of the Santo Niño de Cebú on the third Sunday of January.

It's well worth it of course. Mark's birthday season that is.

After all, he provides us with valuable Buffy the Vampire trivia knowledge, visuals of obscure Power Ranger's rip offs, glimpses at the worlds most pristine woodworking shop, the best Christmas Card ever (I'm still waiting on the royalties,) square room expertise, AND a signature line with "Boobies" in it.

He doesn't share his Joy but he does bring us joy.

Happy Birthday Season Mark!!!

That there is funny.

Murph, you misread a post somewhere. I didn't say my shop IS organized, but rather that I am in the PROCESS of organizing it!

Taken this morning (find a horizontal surface other than on the drill press!):

Direct Link to higher-rez version.

Mark's shop takes my garage out behind your shed and kicks its ass. For laughs.

Boy, I am having real issues with syncing my best wishes to your birthday! Last year I was real late (or even more really early for this year!).

I was going to buy you an incredibly expensive work bench for your shop, but I see you already have one. Whew, dodged a bullet there!

That 50 milestone starts you into the old age of youth. 60 gets you to the youth of old age. Jack & I are just a couple of old farts drinking our concoctions of Jack Daniel's, prune juice, Geritol and liquid Beano. Gets us through the day, but we need to get up 7-8 times a night to pee.

The key message is have a great birthday and fun as you get older. Don't hesitate to request our old fart cocktail recipe when you think you need it. And get your gallbladder chaecked - soon.

Happy B-Day my friend!

It would seem appropriate to hijack this thread as a tribute.....ok, Happy Birthday instead! :-)

You know, we could turn this into the 'recommend and old guy test for Mark on his birthday' thread. I'm sure he'd like that. smile

Funny, this thread began 2 years ago, on your 49th birthday. Ha! So OTH!
