...the song "Runaway" by Del Shannon was the #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100.

Why is this significant? It isn't, except that was also the day I was born. Yep, 45 years old today. (C'mon, if it wasn't that I admitted to having fathered Pelter Boy, you'd all think I was about 13 now, wouldn't you? Ok, maybe 11? 9? 6?)

I'm starting to feel old when I play a certain CCG that shall remain nameless (although then this could be considered off-topic and exiled, except that it's already as far South as it can get), and I can't read the #@$%^& fine print on the cards. Why do card manufacturers have to make the print so small? (It's not that small, you say? Sure, just wait until you get over 40!) I mean, c'mon. At least I can still read the icons on a Dragon Die...
