Happy Birthday

What to do, what to say, what to give to Austin on such an auspicious occasion, it has to be something unique and personal. ~SK

Looking back at your twenties from tipsy Texan college student upstart actor, guest roles to movies, to holding deals and title characters and series, thinker, writer, observer, artist, young buck to deeply committed man with home and family, a lot has happened in a very short time.
Today marks another crossroads in your journey. So for that there is only one thing to give for your birthday.

This.

In the heart of the of the People's Republic of Cambridge (Cambridge, MA) there is a corner that sums up much.


A writer finds inspiration in all things as they look at the world around them. And this is no different. On this corner is the inspiration for your favorite character, Chance the Gardener aka Chauncey Gardiner. It was this corner and this sign that Jerzy KosiƄski found the name of the observer who watched the world on screen, much like you.


And from that comes the message that it is all about dasein (being there), Heidegger's theory of the essential existence of human beings.

Being There. Simple words for a complex experience.

Here's to a new decade. One that continues to grow and change, observed through your eyes and those of wide eye innocence. One to discover and rediscover, to create, to love, to share, to be.


Welcome to your thirties Mr. Nichols.


“Nothing exists until or unless it is observed. An artist is making something exist by observing it. And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it. I call it 'creative observation.' Creative viewing.” - William S. Burroughs



Oh one more thing, they don't call them your dirty thirties for nothing. Best advice, get started on that today. Think you can find someone to help you get them off on the right heels legs foot. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Austin, as you enter your 30s! :*

What a great tribute today - I love the crossroads imagery.

Happy Birthday Austin!

Happy Birthday to Austin today. May he get to spend it today with his family: Jake. BT(s) and maybe even in-law-ish family.

30's is where it's at, buddy. Have some cake today and enjoy being with family and friends. That's what it is all about.

congrats!!!

Happy Birthday Austin!

Have fun celebrating it with your hubby, the rest of the family and your friends.

Stubborn TB said...

OT: Just read a quote from Maggie in the magazine "Angeleno".

When they pass a magazine rack that has covers about the Reeke split, she says the following:
"I don't even read the covers. I blur my eyes. It's a pretend version. It's not my brother. My mom used to read them, because she wanted to read about us. And I had to tell her: Don't, those are the magazines that chase us around and take our pictures."

Interesting that she chose to say that it's pretend and not really her brother on topic of the whole Reeke story.

Happy 30th Birthday Austin. Enjoy it with your husband and family and friends.


Its awesome that Jake got back home for today and that Austins Sister-in-law and little neice will be with him today also.

Jersey Tom said...

PG I was really excited when you told me that Maggie and Ramona were headed West yesterday. Hopefully someone can link those pics for us.

Jersey Tom said...

God I hope UV, FL, Jack and all the other trolls have refills for their meds. They must be locked in dark rooms today.

destiny said...

Maggie is full of it as usual when it comes to the paps--Jake and Reese had the paps on speed-dial and did photo shoots just to go with some of those stories in the rags.

Maggie Gyllenhaal & Ramona: LaGuardia Ladies

prairiegirl said...

I did not say they were going west! I said they were leaving la guardia. I hope they're going west.

prairiegirl said...

LOL I am @ the Waldo QTrip and I'm texting. I had to. Correct the misunderstanding.

Jersey Tom said...

Sorry to put words in your mouth PG. I guess that was just the first thought that came into my head. I think Maggie and Ramona were headed West at least it would be nice to think so.

prairiegirl said...

Maggie looked very happy in the pictures. Ramona looks a lot like Peter. Very cute.

prairiegirl said...

That,s the first thought I had too, Tom.

Seaweed said...

Happy Birthday Austin!

It's nice to think that we might get some photo evidence of this major occasion... but not too likely. We can always live in hope. Special, thanks for a great Birthday post, love your writing and sense of adventure.

Tom, I'll catch up with you tomorrow after I get back home from my Sis, good hearing your voice earlier today.

And we knew this would happen, right guys? We're going to get all kinds of ushers & tour guides today making sure we're aware that Jake & Austin are miles apart, there's no way they're together today. Oh, and quick to let us know that no, Maggie & Ramona were not headed west.

Thanks! lol.

That's all right. Glad if that's the case that they're with their Dad. That's the way it should be. Course, we don't know for sure. No pictures!!!!

Could be one of those "No Thru Street" twitters just like that Austin/Sophia thing was.

Until I see pictures, I'm keeping a very open mind today. We've seen all this before.

Well, I made it back to a real keyboard. Gosh, that little touchpad screen is such an effort. lol.

m said...

Happy Birthday Austin. Terrific post today and a great music selection to go with it. Austin looks so good in those pictures. The years 30-40 are some of the best times of one's life. I hope he gets all that he is longing for.

prairiegirl said...

Before I go down for my Saturday Siesta, I do have to say when was the last time and how often do we ever have Maggie and/or Maggie & Ramona twitters on here?

And bip! there we go. Pointing the way.

:D

Ask and thou shalt receive.

prairiegirl said...

I agree, m. 30's are about the best because you're in your prime physically and you know who you are. You're generally established. And you have the health & energy to do all that you want to do.

Because it's in the 40's that those creaks & groans kind of start, lol.

Now exactly where is ridiculous crap coming from. Where is jazzfest and why would Maggie and Peter fly from NYC to see this. Was Peter at Lagaurda? I didnt see him. Is Peter working where this event is taking place? Where is Ramona? Did they leave her to tend for herself. Give us more details idiot before you post these meaningless tweets.

wft2 said...

Peter is filming Green Lantern in LA?
Maggie and Peter sighting is from New Orleans.


Tomorrow (March 15th, 2010) marks the first official day of filming for director Martin Campell’s long-awaited 3D Green Lantern, starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan and Mark Strong as Sinestro.

so we are expected that Maggie leaves from NYC with her daughter and Peter leaves from LA and meet up in NO for some Jazzfest.


PCS please and dont post anymore nonsense to you have them.

Not nice. They posted the tweet because people were talking about where Maggie was going.

Peter is filming Green Lantern in New Orleans.

lurker said...

I don't understand why someone is called an idiot for posting a tweet. Whoever posted it didn't jump to any conclusions about Maggie and Ramona's destination because they were seen at LaGuardia airport. I just don't see that there's anything sinister about the sightings. There's no conspiracy. Peter is filming in New Orleans and his wife and child fly in to be with him. Makes perfect sense.

Special K said...

Love the song. Pink Flloyd wrote for Syd Barrett after his struggles and erratic behavior,leaving the band, his breakdown, and his self imposed seclusion. Syd was a one who dance on the edge of brilliance and madness. The band, missing the friend they loved, wrote the song about him.

Barrett had one noted reunion with the members of Pink Floyd, which occurred in 1975 during the recording sessions for Wish You Were Here. He attended the Abbey Road session unannounced, and watched the band record "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" — a song that happened to be about Barrett. By that time, the 29-year-old Barrett had become quite overweight, had shaved off all of his hair (including his eyebrows), and his ex-bandmates did not at first recognise him. Eventually, they realised who he was and Roger Waters was so distressed that he was brought to tears.

Don't know why but Pink Floyd reminds me of Austin's introspection and observation, his artistic sensibilities and creativity. And also that he is Jake's most cherished diamond.

Floyd makes me totally chill out moments of serenity.


New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest is one of the premiere Jazz Festivals in the country. I have always wanted to go. I'm quite envious of Ramona, who gets to a much earlier head start on her jazz education than when I started mine.

lunch date said...

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to actually hang out with the cast of One Tree Hill? Now thanks to Tree Hill's very own Daphne Zuniga, one fan will soon be able to share a meal with the stars of the show all while benefiting a good cause.

Zuniga, who is on the board of directors of the LA River Revitalization Corporation, has together with the board and Charitybuzz organized a Mother's Day Auction to raise funds and awareness for the plan to revitalize the Los Angeles river and make the environment around it a healthy and fun destination for everyone. The live auction is at charitybuzz/causes.

The exciting auction will include many amazing items to bid on! Along with Zuniga, the One Tree Hill lunch will include her co-stars; Sophia Bush, Austin Nichols, Lisa Goldstein, and Allison Munn.

“I simply asked if they'd want to have lunch and support the LA River with me and they were kind enough to offer their time, and we all think it will be fun!”, says Zuniga on the once in a lifetime One Tree Hill experience the winner of the bid will receive.
“I love my cast mates, they are all so generous, and fun to hang with! So come have lunch in LA with my pals and feel good about bringing the LA River back!”

Lunch with OTH

Yes said...

Floyd makes me totally chill out moments of serenity.

Me too - I love this tribute to Syd - his breakdown, but still precious to them. :)

prairiegirl said...

It's alright, it's okay.

No one's sinister. Everything's cool as a cucumber.
Nothing to see here.

I think Ramona would have had more fun playing with her cousins.

Oh man, nothing like a good Saturday siesta. And it is still raining although the skies do look like they're lightening up.

Wow, and where do I sign up to go have lunch with Sophin? I'd have to collect all of my questions since the opportunity for one-on-one's would be too good to pass up. LOL. That'd be a blast.

Special K said...

Some more about the future of OTH from Watch with Kristen.

Will One Tree Hill Survive? James Lafferty Weighs In

First, though, here's what James says about the show's chances of a season eight: "I don't want to think negatively, but at the same time it's realistic that it could be our last season. I'm not going to know how I feel until it happens. It's like the end of an era."

But don't start panicking yet, kids! Just because he's being realistic doesn't mean he's already jumped ship. In fact, everyone is all aboard for season eight.

"I'm signed on. Everybody's signed on. It's all ready to go. There's been no conflict on our parts. It's up to the powers that be." So, at least we know that should One Tree Hill be renewed, they can hit the ground running with the same characters. But not exactly the same storylines. James did dish on the rest of the season, and he references lots of "changes" and "decisions."


There is more at the link.

Man, that last comment of mine wasn't nice, was it? Slap me silly, I took it down. Shame on me.

Well, going out to dinner/shopping tonight. Lunch was outstanding - what a nice gesture by a friend of ours. It was at a place in Brookside called "Julian's".

LOL - what is the irony in that? It was kismet!!

Anyway, I guess the chef won a James Beard Award. I take it that is a real honor - I don't know anything about James Beard Awards. But I'll tell you what. That food was out of sight.

:) Have fun, PrairieGirl

Jersey Tom said...

Well there could be a jazz concert in New Orleans today. The tweet is still meaningless. If I see a picture of Maggie, Peter and Ramon at the concert then I will say great hope they had fun. I dont believe tweets like they are the word of Matthew or Luke. Some may. I dont.

why do you care anyway? said...

Why would anyone make up a tweet about Maggie, Peter and Ramona in NO at jazzfest? Peter is filming in NO, why wouldn't his wife and daughter be there with him?

Thwey are a family, you make no sense Tom.

NOLA said...

New Orleans Jazzfest

Jersey Tom said...

Because there obviously are people who would do anyhthing to prove what we say is wrong. They cringe at the thought that Maggie may have went to LA to celebrtae Austins birthday. Yes people would lie. Yes people would make things up. Easy answer. Any others?

why do you care? said...

Austin is a grown man not some 12 year old. Turning 30 is a big deal but I doubt that it's being made a bigger deal than it is on this blog.

So I doubt that people are flying to L.A. to celebrate.

Now Maggie flying to NO with her daughter to see her husband who is working makes sense, she is in NO.

I won't bother posting the tweets from yesterday with Jake, Adam Levine and G. Paltrow or the tweets of Jake and Annie earlier today in L.A. at brunch because you will say they are made up as well.

God forbid if Jake visits friends and his sister has her own life and family.

Whoa said...

Tom, please back away from the conspiranoia milkshake. I think you may be OD'ing on it. I say this as a friend.

Listen I speak for myself here. I am the one who hates tweets. They are ridiculous. We all have heard about the tweets with Jake and his friends. Do you for sure know they they are true. Did you see them all together.

If you think tweets are that important go knock urself out. Many tweets are posted here to someway prove JIS. Jake is not
str8. JIG.

m said...

The guy posting the tweets is probably writing them himself. That is what is wrong with twitter. Totally unreliable. They only serve a purpose if the author is the star or celebrity themselves. Otherwise they could be made up by anyone.

Or does it? said...

I would think Jake being gay doesn't depend on Jake being with Austin.

leigh said...

Happy 30th Birthday Austin!

People knock it off. No one is under any obligation to bow down to the tweeter. If u tweet, that's great but don't expect a blogger of the year award or a bouquet of roses for doing it.

Anything any of us do on here is of ourselves. We shouldn't expect anything in return.

The hypocrisy in this place is blinding. PG and Tom were the only two people on here speculating about Maggie flying "west", based on a tweet about Maggie being at the airport.

When it panned out that Maggie was flying to New Orleans, these two start their usual rants about how you can't trust tweets, or PG's conspiracy theories. More spin than PR

Thanks for the laugh...

Thanks for the laugh! said...

11:23 PM,

learn to read - there was no tweet about Maggie being at the airport, there are pictures posted on JJ.

prairiegirl said...

Huh? What in the heck are you talking about sheesh. That made no sense whatsoever, lol.

We do not know for sure that's where Maggie is.

And get your stinkin' facts straight. It was not a tweet regarding Maggie at the airport. It was a post on JustJared with pictures.

Sheesh.

prairiegirl said...

I can't believe Sheesh wasted all of that keyboarding < i > business repeating, copying & pasting. Tom, you & I should feel so honored. We're immortalized. Cool!!

Alana said...

Poor couch frumps - no sightings of Austin on his big day, let alone, with his supposed BF. No pictures for over a year. Still recycling photos, stories and pices from 4 years to again as the basis for your fantasy.

You analyse everything they wear - jumpers, jackets, shirts, ties, pants in the faint hope that there is some slim connection. Rings and chains are scrutinized as to their meaning. Clutching at straws. Poor couch frumps. So desparate to make it all real.

prairiegirl said...

Aw man, Reese is the returnable wedding gift that just keeps on giving. My sister bought the latest People magazine (the one with Prince William on the cover!) and someone on WFT2 had given a heads up about this article and I must credit them for the insight.

Ice Maiden is in there in a four-page spread that is just asking for a good ol' blog thrashing. And I'm sorry but I'm taking advantage of a quiet night to poke some holes all over this waste of timber.

First of all, we have a repeat in the title heading (Reese's Whirlwind Romance) of "Jake Who?" and we're all informed that this new relationship of hers has gotten "surprisingly serious in just weeks". This is recycled verbal garbo. Remove "Jake" and insert "Toth". Plain & simple. And I bet we could've removed "Ryan" and inserted "Jake" in alot of the Reeke crap as well.

Here's our RDA of Reese Crap:

1. Toth "seemed very comfortable around Ava & Deacon" says an observer. "It was obvious that they have spent time together."

2. "She definitely seems in love. She acts giddy around him. Everyone's so happy for her."

3. After two intensely public breakups, (edit) friends say Witherspoon was at first determined to keep things simple in the romance department. She felt Gyllenhaal, 29, was "a little needy, and it got to be a bit much."

4. Speaking about Toth, Witherspoon "was swept off her feet by someone "who's more mature and in a place in his life where he's ready to settle down," says the source. "The relationship happened very fast. I think for the first time in a very long time, she feels as if she's with a grown-up".

Doo-Doo #5: "She was initially hesitant to introduce Jim to the kids," says her friend.

Doo-Doo #6: "She loves that he's not a celebrity," says her friend. "She always felt that she & Jake had so much heat on them from the press, but with Jim things have not been as crazy. They've been left alone to get to know each other in a more private way."

you stupid girl, why are YOU here reading and posting about "poor couch frumps"? Well?

prairiegirl said...

lol, I cannot be bothered with your nonsense tonight.

Okay, People article continued. It just gets even better. Caution: Sick bucket may be required for reading.

Doo-Doo #7: Once known as a ladies' man in Hollywood circles, Toth, too, seems downright smitten. "He's always saying 'my girlfriend this, my girlfriend that.' He's really into her. He used to be such a player, but he's treating her like gold. He'll do anything for Reese."

Doo-Doo #8: "She's an old-fashioned girl, and she definitely still believes in marriage. Her relationship with Jake was just never meant to be. She's now in a much better place with Jim. She's truly enjoying her life right now."

^^pg editorial: Is that anything like "the best mood ever?" lol.

Doo-Doo #8: Caption by the Easter church services picture: "Jim seemed to support Reese and spend time with her and the kids."

Doo-Doo #9: Caption by a Grocery Run - "She feels he's so much more mature than Jake."

And Doo-Doo #10: Witherspoon is "very hands on with Ava and Deacon," says a source. "She spends a lot of time with them."

Mean said...

prairiegirl said...

I can't believe People printed all of this crap. It's totally pr-fed Malt-o-Meal.

Jake has taken the higher road on this deal. You don't see him trashing her in the rags. And Reese has proven that she is as spiteful as they come.

She's also clearly, clearly distancing herself as far away from Jake as possible. She's trashing him big time and she's also making very sure that the entire world knows she is 1)more happy than she herself can stand to be and 2)She is so over her pretend relationship with Jake that it's as if it was some kind of a nightmare for her; one to be totally forgotten and not worth remembering anything about. It's like an amnesiac "relationship".

The big question is Why?

What is she so afraid of? Because she's doing all this for a reason.

Phew. Had to get that out. And it wasn't even my magazine. lol.

I'm sorry, Mean! lol. Right before bedtime, too. LOL. I couldn't help it. It's such crap, though.

Response to use your brain…Follow your own advice said...

PR PRETZEL LOGIC

The "Austin" Birthday Trip That Keeps on Giving:

(February 6-8, 2010):

1) Jake visits friends in Austin, Texas. Austin Nichols’ family lives in city. Jake is not seen with Austin Nichols the entire weekend.

Jump to conclusion implication: Jake must no longer be friends with Austin Nichols.

2) Jake believes there are milestones in one’s life and travels 1,400 miles to acknowledge a friend’s (David Modigliani) 30th birthday. Jake conspicuously spotted in local eateries, cycling trails, Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop, etc. Nearly three months later, Austin Nichols 30th birthday comes and goes with no public acknowledgement from Jake.

Jump to conclusion implication: Jake must no longer be friends with Austin Nichols.

3) Jake returns to Los Angeles on Monday, February 8. Brings one old and one new friend to a Lakers-Spurs basketball game. Jake makes sure to be conspicuously spotted and photographed in front row with buds from birthday celebration weekend. Austin Nichols is not there.

Jump to conclusion implication: Jake must no longer be friends with Austin Nichols.

Logical Brain Concludes: The absence of a thing or being does not mean it does not exist. What is public is not always real. What is real is not always observable. What lies in two people’s heart lives outside the fallacies of elusion.

I just think if you believe that every twitter you read is fact then you are not very bright. Somebody wanted us to think Maggie was in NO. If indeed Peter had been in NO he could have easily flown to LA to meet up with Maggie there. I have no clue what went on yesterday but I dont believe tweets. I could create an acct and say anything I want. PR companies know that people are taking these things serious. They are all over the internet. They can have you thinking someone is anywhere if you are some twitter devotee.

tin is whack said...

Peter did not fly from L.A. to NO, he was already in NO. Maggie and Peter live in Brooklyn, obviously Green Hornet started filming in NO on 3/15, he at some point flew there sans his family to start filming.

Maggie and Ramona left NY Friday to join Peter in NO, simple.

Peter was not in L.A.

hghgh,

No. No. These are great questions, they say so much about you!

All in all I say yesterday went just fine for J and A. They got to celebrate Austins 30th birthday either at a romantic dinner or with family and friends. We are not sure if Peter or Ramona were there for the party but we know good friends like Adam Levine were in LA to celebrate with them. Wont be long before Austins husband also turns 30 :-)

Jersey Tom said...

Spesh your post was beautiful yesterday. I hope Austin got to see it. We do know he comes on OMG quite a bit.

Jersey Tom said...

I love when you post that last pic SK. Whoever that person is he has got to be at least six ft tall. Those are some very very long legs and some big ass feet.

Very true. It is more than odd how Austin has seemingly disappeared from Jake's life completely, whereas the other friends we have known about, over the years, continue to pop up periodically. Even an "ex-girlfriend" like KiKi is ever present. Let's face it, Jake appears to keep friends that he makes and is more than able to project the image that what you see is not necessarily what is there. Part of being in the closet is the ability to fool people into believing anything. Sounds like it is working for some folks.

Borrow a clue said...

I hope Austin got to see it. We do know he comes on OMG quite a bit.

Constantly repeating that lie isn't going to make it true Tom. SpecialK is so embarrassed that you exposed her make believe story that she just ignores your posts when you mention it and any post which asks her to support your claims.

bad example said...

Even an "ex-girlfriend" like KiKi is ever present.

Not true, there was no Jake and Kirsten sightings for 4 years.
Last year Kirsten said that she isn't in touch with Jake, this year they were filming in Montreal at the same time and ignored each other.

Jersey Tom said...

Borrow it is not a lie. That I can tell you that for sure. I would not make up a lie like that.

Independent that was a beautiful post.


I am sorry that I used the word idiot. I hate that word. I apologise to whomever I said that to.

To whomever said they were my friend in above post Thank you. Yeah friends can have different ways of seeing things.

I get angry when someone comes along and tries to spoil people dreams. Especially when mostlythose dreams are real. We have seen enough to belive they are.

Jake does seem to keep friends forever. Why would he let a good frind like Austin just dissappear out of his life. That alone tells you alot. It was what happened after those last set of bike pics that a decision was made to make sure they were not to be seen together publicly. They have done a good job.

Borrow a clue said...

Borrow it is not a lie. That I can tell you that for sure. I would not make up a lie like that.

Prove it. I've seen other people ask for proof, and all they get is silence. And SpecialK ignores every mention of it. Pictures of Jake are blown up and scrutinized, we turn over every rock for evidence that shows Jake with Austin or Baby Tile, yet there is supposed evidence that Austin visits this site often and suddenly we have to be all hush hush?

Either you're lying or you're being lied to.

Good example checks bad example:

Actually, Kiki is the perfect example to use. Of course, she was not present during the Reeke years. I’m sure the ice queen would have allowed that to occur. But, Dunst was immediately associated with Jake, again, and again, and again, the moment he needed to be linked to “other” women. Like this: “Gyllenhaal, Dunst reignite relationship?Saturday, April 3 2010, 5:57am EDT By Sarah Rollo, Entertainment Reporter. Moreover, even when the two of them supposedly broke up in July, 2004, Jake was then seen constantly with her as early as August 2004, and throughout 2005. The only time there was no link between them was in 2006-07 when Jake was toying with the idea of living a more open existence. You know, the time period he was seen constantly with Austin Nichols.

If someone spoke to me like Whoa did, Tom, I'm sorry but that wasn't a friend.

There's nice ways of putting things but that wasn't one of them.

Ex-beard has nothing to do with that - Jake and Kirsten didn't "break up" as friends and they aren't friends anymore.

Dunst was immediately associated with Jake, again, and again, and again
True, but we are talking about Jake and his friends, not PR bullshit.

Errr, here is what you originally said:

Even an "ex-girlfriend" like KiKi is ever present.

So she's a perfect example of an ever present in Jake's life, except for the Reeke years and the early Austin years? So she's ever present except for 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and the early months of 2010?

You have a weird definition of "ever present".

I would assume SK showed Tom the sitemeter with an ISP address fromNC and the Seagull hotel he was supposedly staying at when he started on OTH.

It was either him, Hilary, his PR right Tom?

Don't forget this said...

Let's not forget the PR overkill after the infamous basketball photos between Jake and Austin were splashed aross the Net in February, 2006. Jake's handlers had to scramble big time to try and do damage control, and who was the person pulled out of the hat, once again? That's right. Omnipresent, Kirsten Dunst. Remember...?

"Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst getting back together?
Thursday March 23rd, 2006 at 6:18 pm

Hilary Swank and Chad Lowe are reportedly giving their relationship another go for the sake of their animals - and it looks like Jake Gyllenhaal and Kirsten Dunst will follow suit.

The couple jointly own two dogs, Boo Radley and Atticus, and a friend of Jake’s believes the pooches will bring them back together.

“They still see a lot of each other because of the dogs,” the friend has explained.

“Maybe because of that, they haven’t really moved on from each other so it’s got to the point where they both feel maybe they should be together.”

“They enjoy the same things and are under the same pressures from their work so they might just make it work after all.”

Kiki is always on speed dial and, therefore, ever present. No need to roll out Dunst, when Jake is bearding with Reesey-pooh. That would be a redundancy, wouldn't it.

LOL!

We are talking about Jake's friends, people he cares about and spends time with. Kirsten is just ancient bearding history.

I don't think that's in question. The point that is being made is still a valid one. Why has Austin Nichols suddenly become persona non grata in Jake's life? Jake will travel 1,400 miles for a person's 30th birthday in Austin, Texas, yet someone who has been a close friend since 2002 is nowhere to be found. Independent Thinker was just showing how absurd it is to believe that even when an ex-girlfriend is continually recycled as a through line in Jake's heterosexual biography, Austin is suddenly nowhere to be found. Perhaps, the man is just hiding in plain sight.

Someone sent me a great email the other day. It's one of those for chicks only. I thought we could use a couple of chuckles. A few excerpts from it:

1. My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

2. The best way to forget all your troubles is to wear tight shoes.

3. Amazing! You hang something in your closet for awhile and it shrinks two sizes!


4. Reason to smile: Every 7 minutes of every day, someone in an aerobics class pulls a hamstring.

And this one had me guffawing in my cubicle and I got in trouble by the BB. Man, she has no sense of humor sometimes. I got in trouble for laughing:

Breakfast

1 grapefruit
1 slice whole wheat toast
1 cup skim milk

Lunch

1 small portion lean, steamed chicken
1 cup spinach
1 cup herbal tea
1 Hershey's kiss

Afternoon Tea

1 The rest of the Hershey Kisses in the bag
1 tub of Hagen-Daaz ice cream with chocolate chips

Dinner

4 glasses of wine (red or white)
2 loaves garlic bread
1 family size supreme pizza
3 Snickers Bars

Late Night Snack

1 whole Sarah Lee cheesecake (eaten directly from the freezer)



LOLLLLL!! Man, that menu just killed me. It killed me.

That People article sure is something, but not a surprise. TR warned us it would go down like this. So I don't think it has anything to do with anything else going on with Jake and Reese.

TR, if you're around at all, would love to hear if you know anything the breakup.

I don't think a sibling's partner's birthday is an event worthy of a cross-country visit, even for a 30th birthday.

Tom is not wrong, I believe Austin does read OMG. You can either believe it or not, in the absence of evidence being posted on OMG.

Special or anyone else with that kind of information is not going to post it for all the trolls and PR to see. We all know about Sitemeter. Posting the facts won't stop the trolls and pr from trying to shoot holes in the evidence. They believe it, they just don't want others to believe it.
