happy birthday, anyway

yesterday was father's day, but also happened to be june 18th, sir paul maccartney's birthday. and not just any old birthday... his 64th birthday.

now it's a pretty safe bet that you all know how i dearly love sir paul. between that and his birthday, i'd say it's about time i said something about this whole... thing.

i'm really sad that he's getting a divorce. i think my image of him being the most romantic guy ever is a bit rocked by this, but then again, maybe it's not. maybe he was the most romantic guy and linda was the most romantic woman, and that sometimes things don't work out even for the best. this is not to say that i'm buying the press image of heather mills being an evil gold-digging attention whore... yet... but i think it's only natural for everyone to blame her for breaking off a marriage to a man who spent all but nine nights away from his previous wife the entire time they were married. people look at how devoted paul was to linda, and they think that it can't possibly be his fault.

i just feel really bad that he's been singing about being 64 and having and old lady to dig in the garden with for forty years, and when it's finally his 64th birthday/father's day he's going through a divorce and looking at loosing custody of his two-year-old daughter. i'm pretty sure that's not what he had in mind. poor paul. :(
