Aujourd'hui c'est mon fete de naissance

Haig the Patriarch of the Armenians

Pardonnez mon francais, mais c'est le fete de mon naissance ce weekend (to be exact, it is the 12th of September, on which I turn the big 24). I feel old, but I'm sure Dr. j will be shaking his head and wishing he could beat me over the head. One quote that comes to mind: non sum quod eram: I'm not what I was.
At least I'm drunk now for a few hours :) Not overly so; Aristotle would be proud :)

BTW, the picture is not of a male Artemis: it is of Haig, the Armenian patriarch, from whom I must claim descent (anyone that can wield a bow and arrow like that is fine by me). According to legend, he slew Baal (or Bel). I wanted to be mythical but culturally accurate at the same time. Armenians call themselves "Hai", and their ancestral country "Hayastan", which means roughly "land of Haigs".
