Birthday Flavored Numbers

I was born in 1964 on December 12th. So this means, this year I turn 48 on 12-12-12.  Here are some edge-of-your-seat, gripping math facts about the numbers 64 and 48 and 12 (and keep reading for what it all really means):

• 6x4=24/2= 12
• 4+8= 12
• 48/4= 12
• 12-12 spelled out, has exactly 12 letters in it
• December 1964 is exactly 12 characters
• 12-12 is 12 days from Christmas Eve. which is 12-24 (24/2= 12)
• 12+12+1964 = 1988-12= 1976.
• 1976 is the year I turned 12, on 12-12.
• That was 36 years ago. 36/3= 12

I realize after reading all that you're just astounded, but here's what it all really means:

1. I can perform basic math
2. I actually do sit around sometimes and think about this stuff, because it's weird, and fun. But, mostly weird.
3. Someone should throw me a HUGE birthday party this year, since it's not that often you get to have your birthday on 12-12-12.

(THIS NOT-SO-SUBTLE HINT-DROP HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY ALL THE LETTERS THAT SPELL OUT CHOCOLATE CAKE AND THE NUMBER... WELL... 12)
