Earlier this week Denver Guy asked me to relate how I celebrated my birthday.  Well, there's not much to tell, so instead I think I'll show you one of my favorite David Letterman top ten lists from way back in 1990:--"Top Ten Ways Souter Celebrated His Confirmation":

10. Smiled for a few seconds, then back to serious thoughts.
9. Bought Sandra Day O'Connor robe from Victoria's Secret.
8. Marched into judicial supply store and announced, "The gavels are on me!"
7. Cruised by Bork and Ginsburg's* places with Aerosmith blasting.
6. Kicked Mom out of house. Had girl over.
5. Made paper hat out of U.S. Constitution, filled it with beer, put it on.
4. Paid his college dope-smoking buddies rest of hush money.
3. Ate his usual cottage cheese lunch off the chest of a $1,000-a-night hooker.
2. Made prank call to guy who won the McMillions contest.
1. Gave a big wet kiss to Thurgood Marshall.

*This, along with #4, is a reference to Douglas Ginsburg, who was picked by Reagan for the Supreme Court but had to withdraw when his former marijuana use was discovered.  Ruth Bader Ginsburg would not be  nominated for the Court until 1993.

Of course it's Douglas. That's what it says (now).
