Go Jimmy, It's Ya Birthday!!!

I am a year older and hopefully a year wiser. Many great things happen in the 36th year of my life.

1. I moved to Los Angeles to be with this beautiful woman and her lovely daughter.

2. I started a new job.

3. I learned that guacamole was made from an avocado

4. I drove up the coast of California.

5. I had a Fat Burger

6. I started a blog - and made some good blogging buddies.

7. I saw the movie Annie - and I really enjoyed it.

8. I finally figured out what I would study in graduate school.

I suspect my 37th year will bring more joy, challenges and surprises. But I'm up for it. As for now, I'm going to chill then head out later this evening and get some Chicago style ribs and spend the weekend have a PARTY!!!

Get ready Jaimie, because I'm dancing naked on the balcony while holding shot of Henny, baby!!!

Holla At Ya Boy!!!!

Go Jimmy, it's ya birthday!
Go Jimmy, it's ya birthday!
We're gonna party like it's ya birthday!

    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I wish you all the peace and happiness in the upcoming year!! :)
  2. YGTBSM Says:
    Happy Birthday - but please tell me that 3 and 7 are jokes! :) Hell, I'll even cut you some slack over Annie. Reading your blog, I see that you've got a "thing" for musicals, but not knowing that guacamole is made from avocados... Now, I know they've got both in the Windy City, no?
  3. James Manning Says:

    I was a pizza and ribs man before I moved to California. Actually, I never ate guacamole until I came to California.
  4. Rell Says:
    congrats on a groundbreaking year in your life man.

    But Cali, just don't know if I could do it. Lots of people, lots of just everything.

    Being from South, Cali is like a different world to me.
  5. James Manning Says:
    Cali is a different world. But I'm from Chicago so the amount of people don't bother me. In fact, I wish it wasn't so spread out. You would be surprise that Los Angeles isn't as fast as you would expect. It's not like New York or Miami. I consider it a very large suburb. But yo, the weather is DA BOMB!!!

    But the south is very different. slower, calmer with nicer people.
  6. Jaimie Says:
    Happy Birthday! I love you!
  7. nikki Says:
    happy birthday! i wish for you continued strength of mind and wisdom as you journey into your next year of life.

    oh, and make sure you get some birthday nookie from jaimie (although i'm sure she got that part covered...)
  8. Dave Miller Says:
    Have a great day James! You've earned it. Blessings brother.
  9. James Manning Says:
    Thanks for that Nikki, I'll make sure she takes your suggestion under consideration.

    Dave, appreciate it.
  10. Johnnie Says:
    Scrappy Birthday, man.

    Nikki's got a one-track mind, don't she?

    But I ain't even mad atter.

    Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!
  12. Cynthia Says:
    Happy Birthday and I hope you have many many more productive years. James, I'm with ygtbsm on the guacamole/avocados thing. It appears going to Caly may have opened up your horizon a bit...
  13. James Manning Says:
    I don't Cynt, it's not that I don't like it - it really doesn't have a taste. But at least I know what it is.
  14. TheOneandOnlyInsanely Says:
    I love you and Jaime's relationship .


    Cute old school pic, it kinda looks like your avatar...lol

    HEY!! Nobody make fun of Annie. I'm serious. I LOVED her and I used to look like her. You better not make fun of her.

    It's a hard knock life for us . . . .

    Hey there James! Happy Birthday to you and so forth. I am happy you decideed what you would study and got with your girlfriend. It seems those things bring you happiness and go for it; far too many of us don't even know what happiness is!

  24. letter shredder Says:
    james, happy birthday!

    just after reading your blog, i instantly figured out why jamie did not choose to post today -- SHE'S BUSY.

    here's to another great year,
  25. kerri Says:
    happy birthday james! i hope it was a great one! :)
  26. Cynthia Says:
    What are you going to study?
  27. Diane S. Says:
    Happy birthday James. May God bless you and keep you and hold you in the palm of His hand.
  28. James Manning Says:
    Cynt, I'm going to get a Masters in Public Administration with a focus on Non-Profit Management. I have an idea for a non-profit organization and I just want to work at a place where I feel that I am making a difference.

    To All: Thank you for you well wishes and I appreciate the love. Phase II of the celebration is Saturday night.
  29. Shavonne Says:
    Happy Birthday. It seems I'm always a day late.
  30. Dan-E Says:
    happy (belated) birthday! and aren't you glad you found that you can get awesome burgers in socal? i mena, fatburger is great but in 'n out beats them all (even your precious white castle. sorry).
  31. taylor Says:
    Congrats on making it through another year of life. Happy Belated Birthday!
  32. Neil Says:
    Happy Birthday! Glad you finally discovered Fatburgers. Just don't eat too many of them. And In-N-Out is much better anyway.
  33. James Manning Says:
    I'm not sure about In-N-Out being better than Fatburger. Fatburger has a bigger sandwhich and the fries are better. But In-N-Out is very good. Neither can beat out those gas burgers at White Castle.
  34. Tif Says:
    Happy belated bro, and many more. Do they ship those Fat burgers? Looking forward to many mor' years of wisdom up in this piece.
