  1. So, if I do this, then I’m an honorary Nine-er, eh?

    Years ago I learned a toast from a Dutch friend. Turns out it’s exactly nine words long:

    “Zum mitte, zum titte, zum sack – chak, chak, chak!”

    With each phrase, one points (presumably with one’s empty hand) to the indicated part of the anatomy – the stomach, the chest, and finally the Ol’ Nutsack. Cheers!

    Birthday Toast of the 9S: To a birthday filled with wanderlust and dreams pursued.

    May the good lord be with you
    Down every road you roam
    And may sunshine and happiness
    Surround you when you’re far from home
    But whatever road you choose
    I’m right behind you, win or lose
    Forever young, forever young
    Forever young, forever young.
    -Bob Dylan

    If you make it to Mountain View CA, find the Alpine Beer Garden, known as Zot’s, in Portola Valley. I’m a friend of your Granny from Mountain View CA; have one for me but don’t eat the food.
