A Birthday Fit for a King

 My Birthday Cake

Today is my Birthday and while I don’t really care for getting older I am content with the fact that I still have the mind of a 12 year old stuffed into a 46 year old skull.

The debauchery fanfare actually started yesterday as one of my oldest friends in Pattaya, Boon, was also having a Birthday and I had been threatened by more than a few of my friends at Cherry Bar on Soi 8 that I had better show up so we can celebrate together. I’m not really sure if getting hammered into submission qualifies as celebrating but by the time I watched the sunrise I felt more like a nail than a human.

My bestest friend Neng, not to be confused with Ning, Whom I have known for 6 years made sure that I had a very wonderful birthday complete with cake and great friends. I want to thank everyone at Cherry Bar for a great night and a great Birthday…Now I’m wondering what trouble I will get into tonight :P

Anyway, I thought I would share some of the pics from last night/this morning.

    Happy birthday Talen/Tim…wow what a cake, low fat no doubt! Looks like a wonderful time was had by all. Strawberry tequila? I’m never going near tequila again, I don’t care what flavour it is ;)

    Woohoo! Sorry, I missed it Talen. I’ll buy you a HB drink next time.

    Looks to me like there’s some new staff at Cherry Bar. And it also looks to me like you could have had a very good time, if you can remember :-)

    As for photos, I want to see the ones you didn’t publish ;-)

    Nice to see Hammer still running the bar. Hard to believe it’s been almost 4 years since I’ve been there. I went on a few of his famous bar crawls back in ’07 and had a great time. Then I met my honey in ’08 and that was pretty much the end of that :(
    Anyway Happy Birthday Talen!

      Rambone, Adam always hosts a good bar crawl…I’ve been on a scouting mission or two with him through the years and they are even more fun.

    Happy Birthday Talen, you’re right about that Adam guy, he looks like a really bad influence.

      Thanks Lawrence, Adam is a bad influence but I am also easily persuaded…

    I haven’t talked to you in a couple years. We’re both the same age, and I’m a grandfather now.
    Tell me that doesn’t make you feel old. It sounds like your having the time of your life in Thailand.
    I’m happy for you Tim. When you get a minute
    drop me a line. Meanwhile, enjoy yourself, and keep writing. I enjoyed reading your stories.
    Hope to hear from you soon
