Cheeky's birthday is coming up this weekend, and the Crouton family (the feminine portion, at least) is getting geared up for some major festivities. Cups, hats, banners, and god knows what else will all be lovingly assembled for a cacophony of Cheeky's "friends", who will in turn dump said preparations into the pool and cry.
I have my own preparations, including the obligatory birthday post, Ver. 3.0, which I have to get crackin' on. In the interim, I'm going to yet again steal a music meme from my comrades-in-tunes (although also simultaneously posted by DadCentric maestro Jason, who himself stole it from here) and pass it along to you, my faithful reader(s).
The meme: pick your favorite album from every year you've been alive.
Here's my list. Yes, it's very, very long, so consider all your age jokes as delivered and duly received. Leave me a comment with a link to your list so I can
