[It's been one hundred and sixty-three years to the day that Jack obtained statehood. One hundred and sixty-two years prior, he hardly guessed he would get this far. Of course, he hasn't celebrated it every year, and he doesn't know if being in HQ for this one makes it any different. After all, he figured that if a cupcake costs an average $1.99 at a grocery store (plus sales tax, but he'll round it to $2.00 even), he would have wasted $326 in the past one hundred and sixty-three years on cupcakes. Thus, he finds it a little bit useless to celebrate.

Even if he thinks that way, he managed to find a cupcake on his end table this morning with a lovely little note from HQ wishing him a happy one hundred sixty third, and hopefully another one hundred and sixty-three to come. Obviously, he can't waste a perfectly good cupcake.

So yes, Happy Birthday, Jack. :)

[Indy would like to say he's only here to repay the favor of the delicious fantastic surprisingly not disgusting cornbread you made him for his birthday.

So... he's at your door. He wants to knock, but his hands are loaded up with succotash and persimmon pudding. So he sort of maneuvers the tupperware bowl filled with succotash and sets it on top of the pudding so he has a free hand.

There we go.]

[He knew your Birthday was sometime after his, all he had to do was go look it up in the encyclopedia.

But it's kind of sad that he doesn't realize it's his own birthday. You've kind of deflated his spirits, but he does a lazy swaying dance with his foodsuffs anyway.]


Happy Happy... Birthday! Happy Happy Birthday Iowa!

[ He has been attempting his take at becoming normal, at trying to be civil - even if his body is tense and his eyes are twitching from time to time.

Bringing some cookies in a tin (http://img257.imageshack.us/img257/6127/4newglarusbakerybutterc.jpg) and of course some pie (http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/7614/2369pieofthemonthclubm.jpg). Believe it or not, he had to concentrate a lot on doing this, on making it precise. However, to a keen eye, the way he made them seems a little off - in terms of stability in how the crust and the designs look. And underneath all the delicious food, he carries a box.

He doesn't say a word as he stays by the door, lightly tapping his foot against it to get attention.

Um... well... I guess that'd be alright to do... ?

[ He slowly nods, it seems so delayed in his strange daze. The man walks in carrying the boxes - looking for a place to put the gifts. While it's obvious to tell the first two are food, the box at the bottom is something else entirely.

In a strange way, he seems distracted.

He kicks open Jack's door, arms too loaded with presents at the moment to be able to use the doorknob. He's singing his own version of "Happy Birthday" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ej1ylPIk44o) at the top of his lungs. But, like usual, he's forgetting most of the words.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! NOW YER ONE YEAR OLDERRRR!

Shoving all those presents into Jack's arms so he can give him a head nuggie of epic proportions, one for every year Jack's been a state. Among all the random colored packing peanuts he stuck in the boxes, he thought they were pretty, Jack will find a new set of drum sticks, a poseable Cap. Kirk action figure, a DVD (http://www.amazon.com/King-Green-Packaging-Michael-Pollan/dp/B0012680D0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1262060620&sr=8-2") and a new Hawkeye sign (http://www.dromar.com/lp/sscollege/20046.jpg).
