Today is my birthday, or, as some have called it, the anniversary of my birth. I don’t really care how you spin it, as long as it involves cake.
It needs to involve pizza, if at all possible, as well, though a good run through at a Hibachi joint will serve as a nice substitute, if necessary (and it’s generally superfineok with me if it is).
So, what, pray tell, do I want for my birthday? Well, I did find seasons two and three of Six Feet Under on sale, so that’s an easy Win. I was gifted the first two seasons of Dexter, so that’s Win number two. Hibachi? Check. Cake? Check…and, check, actually (Win, Win). Tasty Coffee? Archer Farms Fudge Brownie, with Bailey’s Irish Creamer (not Bailey’s itself I am sad to say), check, and Win. 75, ooo 7th Day Adventists? Chec…wait, what?
In honor of all that I am likely to do wrong over the next ten days, and because this is my damn blog, and I can write whatever I damn well please, I would like to say that there is no greater gift on my birthday, than this:

A General Conference Session is a unique occasion. There is no moment in the life of the Church which demonstrates so vividly–so tangibly–the extraordinary way God’s Spirit is moving among us. And so I’m delighted to invite your presence and participation at the 59th Session of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, in Atlanta, Georgia, June 23 –July 3, 2010.
“A host of demons is hovering above the crust of the earth. They are waiting on their leader to speak to them. None of them are speaking words to one another, only hissing and snickering has come forth from the mouths on their evil angelic faces. Their leader is dressed in a black robe wearing a gold colored breastplate, and his demon followers are dressed in brown robes with silver colored breastplates. The leader starts to speak when a demon asks a question.‘Satan, since we have lost the war in Heaven, what is our next plan?’The Leader roars like a lion before he speaks.‘How many times have I told you to call me Lucifer and don’t you ever again say that we have lost anything. You hear me?” Lucifer says infuriated.
