The occasion is inspiring me to reflect on a bit of our history...
I "met" Vince 2 or 3 years ago on EHarmony. Good times. Yeah, I tried it - shut up.
Anyway, I had a mad crush on him. We're talking constant emails, calling all hours of the night, pictures of my Vince shrine sent to his phone at 4 hour intervals. The day he filed the restraining order is when I think we both knew we would always be friends. Aww.
We had one glorious year together before he fled to Ohio. We made good use of it though! Highlights include, brakestands in my new Mustang down Cherry Ave, Movie Sundays where we would pick the film and then the food that went with it, and lots of hours in his room putting the OAP website together [it's friggin awesome, btw!].
We set the foundation for our own language as well.
"Dude you forgot to hook up the doll" [adapted from Weird Science]- meant that Big V had posted something new during web construction but hadn't refreshed the page so I could see it. Even though the website is done, we still find ways to use this one. It's one of my faves for sure.There are more, but I am blanking. Perhaps the birthday boy himself can add to this list.
"Todd just read the map; I wanna get there!" [adapted from the fab reality show Andrew Dice Clay had last year] - meant one of us was taking too long on a story and/or being tangential, so get to the point already.
"Special skills and Unicorn magic" - is a Dani original I created whenever he would impress me with something techy.
In summary, [just wanted to use that] We had much fun, lots of laughs, great conversations, and some serious cocktails.
You make the late 30s look fabulous tiger! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!
