AAl's Tumblr

Sometimes it takes me awhile to come around to the things everyone else is doing. I think I "get" Tumblr now, so I'm'a give this thing a try.

Also, don't be offended if I don't follow you - I have a million Tumblrs in my RSS reader already, so double-following just doesn't make sense. I assure you, though - if I know you, I'm probably following you.

Man, So Bendis finally closed the Bendis Board today. I hadn’t been posting there n years and it wasn’t what it used to be but man, that place was important. I was on it about 14 years ago and met some of my best friends there.

This is the forum on which I met my wife, most of the people with whom I regularly collaborate creatively and more friends than I can count.
I also haven’t posted there in years — a brief remembrance of a departed friend and a recent very quick joke appearance notwithstanding — and it sort of surprises me that it was around for this long, to be honest. But my life wouldn’t be where it is now without it.

I admit I sometimes have a problem with this.

I don’t really like to make a big deal of my birthday. It happens every year, and I’m at an age where the milestones are separated by a great gulf of years. I typically just have a quiet dinner out with my wife and another couple; the restaurant is not informed that there is any special occasion and I am spared the mortification of having “Happy Birthday” sung to me in public by strangers.

Friday night I spent my birthday on stage in Kansas City, performing with Superego as part of the annual Kansas City Improv festival. At the end of the show, Superego joined the other acts from the evening on stage for a group curtain call, which culminated in me being presented with a gift bag and the entire audience sing “Happy Birthday” to me. It is by far the largest group of people that has ever sung to me. I could check, but I bet I’m right on this one.

As much as I avoid making a scene on my birthday, I was touched by this. And performing on my birthday put things into very sharp focus: I have, it turns out, a wonderful life. 

Thanks to everyone, friends and strangers alike, for their birthday wishes yesterday. Thanks to the Kansas City Improv festival for being so thoughtful and for having cake(s) backstage. Thanks to all the improvisers who signed the card. Thanks to Easy Tiger Cards for my presents. Thanks to Superego for inviting me to join them. Thanks to that couple in the bar who gave the waitress the nice note to pass on to me. Thanks to anyone who enjoys what I do and lets me do it.

As far as “Happy Birthday” goes, well, you just have to take it.

This is a sweet post and all, but mostly I’m reblogging it for PFT’s subtle tagging, which I have preserved here.
