This, ladies and gentlemen, is the famed Bondi Beach, mere minutes from my apartment:
Not sure I can remember ever spending my birthday laying around on a beach, but that's exactly what I'll be doing with the other members of Team America this afternoon, followed by dinner at a French restaurant.

I'll share those plans with you this week and we can all sit around and imagine the worst possible ways it could all turn out.
In the meantime, let's all thank Joe for this birthday card, which came with the message "Hope you die a miserable old man. Love, Joe":
