A look at James Franco's film "I Am Michael"

“Sometimes I get a little sad, and I feel like being alone. Then I talk to my cat about it, and he reminds me I’m James Franco. Then we dance.”

Happy Birthday James! The prolific actor, filmmaker, professor, and frequent Instagram user turns 37 today and as many of you are recovering from the weekend, we’ve created the perfect party timeline as told by GIFs. Enjoy the list below:

When your friends want to go out but you’re in the middle of a Netflix binge:

But you catch a glimpse of yourself in the reflection of your computer screen and resist clicking “next episode”:

So you show up to your favorite spot and all the good times come rushing in:

You spot your crush and hand him the AUX cord:

Once your suitor has selected a jam, you give him one option and one option only:

Upon realizing you have zero skills, you keep it cool by testing the waters with reverse psychology:

You’re ready to break the seal, so you embark on your journey to the restroom:

This is where you run into ten screaming girls who you’ve never seen in your whole entire life:

Shortly after, you get a late-night sext via creepy guy from Tinder:

Then your equally-sloshed BFF records you acting some type of way:

And you say something strange to the bartender so he cuts you off:

Outside waiting for le taxi, you’ve deemed it best to act casual for you’ve been spotted by the boys in blue:

Four-score and seven years later, the chauffeur drops you off at a pizza palace to indulge on a slice of cheesy goodness:

And you’re so happy that you go home and Xerox your own face:

Migrating to the bedroom, you grace your eyes on the holy place of slumber:

And the next day, you regrettably file through texts from the night prior:
