Garfield the Cat

When I was younger, Garfield was one of my favorite newspaper comics. I would read it daily in the newspaper, check out collections from the school library, and later would really love the tv show Garfield and Friends. When I moved out to go to college, my daily reading subsided (and thankfully, I never saw the live action 2004 Garfield movie). Perhaps one of the real reasons I enjoyed the cat so much is because we share the same birthday. And not just the same day (like I do with Paula Abdul) but also the same year. So each year as June approaches, I find myself starting to read the daily Garfield online, waiting for the first comic to address our birthdays. And since this year is a big one, it looks like we are starting a whole ten days before the event (as opposed to last year, where the first mention was the day before on June 18th).

I think I'll pass with the time machine, there is no way I would want to relive my junior high years.
