Today, March 11th, is Evrysing's Birthday. I welcome any and all good wishes. Thus far it has been a great day, Kindling made me breakfast in bed (some lovely oatmeal with apples and blueberries!) and showered me with amazing presents!
Today is also the birthday of several notable individuals, including baseball pitching legend Dock Ellis. A talented pitcher for the Pirates, Yankees, and Texas Rangers, he is most known for a June 12, 1970 game where he pitched a no-hitter while on LSD, having taken it under the impression that he wasn't pitching that day.
Regarding this incredible summer day, Ellis has said this- "I can only remember bits and pieces of the game. I was psyched, I had a feeling of euphoria... The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn't."
In regards to the coming year and the larger 'game' I hope this describes my 28th year of life perfectly, with similar results (you know, metaphorically speaking and all) Happy Birthday Dock!
Speaking of Texas, today is also the birthday of hip hop artistic genius and grill seller Paul Wall. Anyone who knows me knows my deep passion for all things Chopped and Screwed, Slowed and Throwed, etc. so I won't go on too long. But Happy Birthday Paul! Chunk the Deuce!
