According to Le Clown, “Every Day is Fucking Magical”. And he’s right. Today, in particular, is extremely fucking magical. Why, you ask? Because today we celebrate the birth of a very special, flaming (not in that way) Canadian.
I’ve only known Le Clown on Fire for a short time, but it has been long enough for me to explore several aspects of his awesomeness. His love of family (not to mention his amazing writing skills) is heartwarming. This clown has the biggest heart. He’s always striving to shine the spotlight on other bloggers, and has an entire page dedicated to doing so. He is there for all of his blogging friends, and loves to make them feel special; he even celebrates their greatness when they are Freshly Pressed!
I owe Le Clown my life. Okay, maybe that’s a little much. But I do owe him for giving me a major blogging boost. Back in December, I was honored when Le Clown contacted me and asked if I’d like to be inducted into Le Blogroll. And so I was. That day, I broke the record for most “likes” on my blog ever. Since then, things have only continued to go up, and I find myself motivated to post even more often, because people are interested. So thank you, Le Clown. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
But this is about Le Clown! Not me. Damnit. The man gets enough attention, and we continue to give him more? Le sigh. I guess it’s because we love him, or something.
Le Clown - Eric - Happy Birthday, my blogging friend. There are hundreds taking time out of their day today to say, “Shit, it’s Le Clown’s birthday! I must go wish him the happiest in celebrating his day of birth.” Thank you for all that you do. You are a force in the blogosphere.
