Reasons My Birthday is Awesome: Part 1

I’m having a super fabulous birthday. This is in part because my friend Christie came to visit and we are doing fun stuff, but I will save that for Part 2. Part 1 is about my Twitter friends. Some people might suggest that I spend too much time on Twitter and blogging, but they are wrong for two reasons: 1) the people I talk to on Twitter are super awesome and 2) I generally hate leaving my house.

When I woke up this morning, I discovered a post that Jamie of The Perpetual Page-Turner made for me. It features a lolcat, and it is ridiculously sweet. It also made me want Thai food, which I got for lunch 😀

Then I got this video from Capillya of That Cover Girl. This was one of the nicest things anybody has ever made for me, and it is too amazing not to share. So, with her permission, here is the video:

I’ve also gotten numerous Twitter and FB messages from all my blogging friends. I’m incredibly appreciative of each and every one. When I started blogging this year I had no idea how many wonderful friends I would make. (I also never expected to have Catherine Ryan Hyde wishing me a happy birthday, so that’s definitely a bonus.) I’m extremely grateful that I have all of you in my life, so thank for making this birthday the best I’ve had in years.

And that’s not just because it’s competing with birthdays that involved stomach flu, blizzards, and finals.
