Today's the day! Happy Birthday to "The Scholar, the Sphinx, and the Shades of Nyx"!
So make that an excuse to go out and celebrate today. Tell your friends while you're eating your slice of cake, drinking your wine and wearing a cone-shaped party hat, "Hey, it's the Scholar and the Sphinx's birthday! Didn't you know?"
Besides, who doesn't love cake? Oh, and give yourself a present and buy the book! Or have a family member or friend buy it for you. It's not a birthday without presents, after all!
As they say at the Renaissance Fair (which I hope to get to to celebrate my 5th wedding anniversary this month): Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah!
