Happy Birthday, offbalance! Sharon has the distinction of being one of the friends i have known the longest. And okay, it's really not all that long in the grand scheme of things (approx. 4 years) but given how people drift in and out of my life, this is impressive. We don't talk as much as we used to, but she's still a wonderful person with whom i can discuss Whedonverse, politics, college, personal drama, literature, whatever, and though we frequently disagree we're still loving and respectful and thoughtful. *cheers*
Sharon, you were probably the first of my peers to get a "real job" -- you and your publishing job with your name plaque -- but you are so not "old" in any sort of bad way. Hope you have a kickass birthday weekend.
Dude, i can't believe some of my friends think i'm insane for Spring Breaking to Virginia. (P.S. I didn't reply to youse who commented, but thank you for endorsement; i appreciate it.) Oh, Comment Threads of Doom doing interstate travel plans with 3 people. Have i mentioned recently how much i heart people who can plan? (Not to mention the major love i feel that people are willing to pitch in for travel costs so they can hang out with me.)
And Happy Birthday One Day Early to the wonderful sk8eeyore whose fault this whole insanity is ;)
