    today is jaime’s birthday 

    hes 26.

    the first time he wrote me an email he said something like “i get hotter chicks than you do.” and thats it.

    truth of the matter was i had just worn two supermodels out and was waiting for a third to get out of the shower cuz i called her a dirty ho and she said im not dirty and i said yes you are and she said well maybe a little dirty and i pointed to the cabinet with the spare towels and when i heard the water i checked my email and there was bro talkin hella shit.

    ever since then my fellow libra and i have had a pleasant time of linking to each other and stoking each other in silent ways.

    he sent me his book this summer which i tried to read while on jury duty but tia carrera was sitting across from me and then we got slapped with an earthquake.

    but i broed him with the link on the left and what i read was good so if youre up for sex drugs and new york tales you should get the novel which is beautifully designed.

    so good that i asked him if hed design Stiff and he said yes but i never took him up on it cuz im lazy.

    so then i had a book design contest that you probably all remember and he won it pretty easilly cuz hes a stud.

    he takes cool pics of hot chicks and you gotta tip your hat to him for that but i think its a libra thing. women come easy for us, we just have to remember not to get in our own way.

    so today is his birthday so i am putting up his painting of raymi that i have in my bathroom, a pic he took of bono this week, some other pics by him, and a list i stole from another blog of all the cool free shit you get on your birthday if theyre still valid.

    happy birthday bro, i hope i see you in the apple when i make my way out there on 10/17.
