On the heels of Immortal Kiss's release (which you can purchase here!), I'm excited to say that today is my BIRTHDAY! Now now, let's not annoy the birthday girl by asking her how old she is...'kay?

Since it's my birthday, and since I'm probably in a car this very moment doing the four-hour drive north to Algonquin Park where we'll be camping for the rest of this week (pray it doesn't rain), I think I deserve presents!

So I want everyone to post a joke for me in the comments section, which I'll read and laugh over when I get back.

See you soon!

You lucky schmuck. I love Algonquin Park.

Have a great birthday. I don't have a funny joke, but after spending a week in San Francisco I have a new favorite quote by Mark Twain.

"The coldest winter I ever spent was my summer in San Francisco."

He ain't kidding.

Have fun. I'll see you in September, I have chocolate for you.

All the jokes I know seem so long--or maybe it's the way I tell them.

But here's one I like.

OLD people have problems that you haven't even considered yet!

An 85-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.

The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, "Well, doc, it's like this - first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help.

She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing.

She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing.

The doctor was shocked! You asked your neighbor?

The old man replied, Yep, none of us could get the jar open.

Happy birthday, JK!

Happy Birthday and Happy Book Release!!!

I'm LMAO at Maria's joke!

Here's one I got in email the other day...
Brian invited his mother over for dinner. While there, his mother kept watching his very attractive roommate, Stephanie.

Brian said, "I know what you're thinking, mom, but she's just my roommate."

A couple of days after the dinner, Stephanie mentioned to Brian that the silver gravy ladel has been missing since the night his mother came for dinner. He agrees to send his mother an email asking her about it.

He writes, "Mom, I'm not saying you *did* take the ladel or you *did not* take the ladel, but the silver gravy ladel has been missing since you were here. Any ideas?

To which Brian's mother responded, "Brian, I'm not saying you *are* sleeping with Stephanie or you *are not* sleeping with Stephanie, but if she was sleeping in her own bed, she would have found the ladel by now.

Moral: Never lie to your mother!

Thanks everyone. Maria and Terri, the jokes are great! I'm back a little early, because of rain, but technically still on vacation, so keep 'em coming!
