Big D is ruining my mojo!

I'm a first born,  I'm highly competitive.
Sadly I am.
I admit it freely.
My younger brother and I are in many ways a lot alike. We have similar personalities.  We don't agree on everything, but we keep fairly symbiotic relationship going.  We co-exist well (even though I did dress him up as a girl when we were kids).
Things are changing, and I'm not coping well.
He has a far better job than me, and is a big success.
He has a good network of single friends (which I envy)
He is better off financially.
He lives in Hove (the UK which I envy)
He is on the path to dual citizenship.
He is really growing, faith-wise, and really being recognized and used in his church. ( I will not dignify my vexedness at the disparity between me and him on this one with words, as they would be uncouth, and necessitate a mouth enema)
He has lost over 80 lbs in the last 4 months, and really transformed the way he looks (I have my own issues with the diet plan and the rapidity of the weight loss, but that doesn't stop me from being envious)
All of these have been niggling around in the back of my head for a while, but they all came to a head today.

Today is our sister Bethany's birthday. (by the way go say hi and wish her a happy day. blond_sister is 32 today)
I called to wish her a Happy Birthday and this is how she answered the phone.
"I'm Gobsmacked!  I can't believe that Dave called to wish me a Happy Birthday before you did!"
Insult to Injury.
I'm 5 hrs behind her in time as I'm in the Midwest and she's in the Uk, but I usually beat him.  Not that its a competition or anything, but I usually remember to call first.  Today he got the heads up  on  me.  Again.
I've about had it.
Having more hair that he does can't be the only thing I do better than him.
It just can't be.
Who stole my Big Sister Mojo?

Can I have it back?


I'm begging here!

Throw me a friggin' bone!
