Considering that my name made it onto the back of Mr. Sam Sykes' Black Halo with the quote "Sam Sykes is violently romantic" and Sam is responsible for that quote there on my profile (as well as a great deal of smack talked at conventions, some of which has or has not ended up on his blog) it is fitting that I honour his natal day, seeing that he is but a zygote in the grand scheme of the world.
"If only there were more men like Sam Sykes..."
Well... the world would need more Epic Poetry.
Happy Birthday, Sam. For my birthday, please don't sacrifice that cow like you promised you would, I'm vegetarian. The candlelit vigil on the blackest night of December is a nice touch, though.
