Thank you everyone for the kind birthday wishes! Today, I received: a new computer at work (20" iMac running OSX 10.5); flowers in a GIANT MARTINI GLASS filled with pink crystals (the most amazing thing about that is that No, it wasn't Raqs who sent it to me); and I got to watch the most amazing bluejay fight I have ever seen. Tomorrow, if I'm lucky, I expect to receive an octopus.

The best part about having a milestone birthday is getting a call from your older brother, who took turning 50 in reasonable stride (except for the part where he's going to jump out of a perfectly good airplane; and also, he leased a Porsche; at least it's not red!), but freaked out over his "baby sister" hitting the big Four Oh. Yes, yes, I'll still always be the younger one! And I have less grey hair. (Even if I wasn't coloring it.)

In the spirit of giving, I offer you all... FUNNY VIDS...

"Hi! I'm a Marvel... and I'm a DC: Iron Man and Batman"



"Part Two" (be sure to stick around for the "surprise ending"!)



"Part Three"




The above three vids are only the latest in a long-running YouTube series that started off with the "Hi! I'm a Marvel... and I'm a DC!" thing between Superman and Spiderman, and got... reaaaaally elaborate from there. I'm not going to embed them all, but here they are in order:

I've had one at home since last summer, so it doesn't have *quite* the same novelty SQUEE factor it might. :) But I've been "suffering" with an older iLamp at work through the year, as it felt slower and slower (in comparison with the new machine at home). The other main novelty is that this one at home is running Tiger, while the new one at work is running Leopard. So I got to spend some fun time today poking around and finding out what nifty new stuff comes with Leopard.

Happy Birthday! Sorry we couldn't join you for dinner tonight, I've been feeling really achy and. . .off all day. :( But I'm glad your day was good!

Thanks! And *hugs*. That's okay - I hope you feel better soon! (I didn't want to pressure y'all, as it really was just an off-the-cuff invite.)

That's cool, we weren't feeling pressured! Just sad because we don't see you much, what with you living so far away and all. . .lol. :) We mostly felt bad because we wanted to take you up on it, you know?

Hey, y'know...some people try to stretch out their birthdays for a couple of days on either side... This just means you must be stretching it out by a few weeks. And I can hardly fault ya!

That DOES sound better than "lazy bastard", doesn't it?

Totally. It also sounds like "am still available to receive presents" - which is my kind of extended birthday! ;p

Happy birthday! For some reason I thought your birthday was on the 22nd... Not that I can ever remember anyone's birthday these days. >_>

From: [identity profile] eregyrn.livejournal.com
Are you kidding? I swear, these days, I'm lucky to remember which MONTH most of my friends' birthdays are in. Nevermind the precise DAY! I can't really expect anyone else to remember the precise day of mine, therefore.

Thank god for LiveJournal, actually -- you can always suavely pretend you knew all along, when actually you just saw other people posting about it.

Yeah, once I discovered them, I had to stay up until like 12:30am on a work night, watching them. Fabulous!

PS My youngest daughter (for whom those Eddie vids were completely inappropriate but she watched anyway) is now doing Happy Birthday a la Eddie.

I feel strangely proud.

*I*, of course, have to ask you - who DID send it???

it's a lot funnier now that we're not together any more. *gives you hairy eyeball*

Oh, Whit and Ron in Oregon sent it. I really have to tip my hat to them.

I finally threw out the dead flowers, but of course saved the giant martini glass and the pink plastic crystals it's filled with. And you know what? That sucker is GLASS! It's like 18" high -- you could use that think as a serving dish for parties. Hmm. Maybe that's the point. I'm definitely hanging onto it.
