June 1

Today, June 1, is our birthday; my clone and I are now 43 years old.

(“Happy Clone Decanting Day,” said LR to us on Facebook, but really, the rumors of us having been created in a mad scientist’s lab are only rumors — there’s no proof.)

So far, it doesn’t feel any different from being 42, except there’s no SF-geek joke in the number 43.


About Thomas Weaver

I’m a writer and editor who got into professional editing almost by accident years ago when a friend from university needed someone to copyedit his screenplay about giant stompy robots (mecha). Having discovered that I greatly enjoy this kind of work, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use ever since as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom. I'm physically disabled, and for the past several years, I’ve lived with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have six cats. (The preferred term is "Insane Cat Gentleman.") I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

    Lesser known fact: The number 43 is the lowest number (positive integers) not mentioned in the bible.

    Congratulations on reaching 43. Unfortunately, I can’t think of anything remotely witty to say about the number, but I like the excellent comment above from syrtnsse.
