Dept. of Far Too Many Birthdays

Hums "Happy Birthday to Many"

As I sit here, watiing to watch Doctor Who, and bemoaning the fact that I never did get my series 08 meta put together, I realize that I have left birthday wishes unsent for ... augh ... weeks. So let me send some out now.

First, to the talented artist redscharlach, who had a birthday way back on Oct. 23. I hope your natal day was a good one, and that you have another year of enjoying fandom, and enriching it with the wonderful art and icons that you create.

Next, to [personal profile] cosmiccoz , who also had an Oct. 23 birthday. May this year be twice as good as last year, my dear; free of sadness, pain, eyestrain, grief and hardship. You are in my thoughts.

Thirdly, to the incomparable [personal profile] yamx , who celebrated on Oct. 26. I am so glad I know you here on Teh Intarwebz. Here's to a warm, talented, friendly, and thoughtful fellow fan, who has written stories I will never forget, and with whom I've shared laughs and excellent conversations!

Closer to the present, viomisehunt, a lady I respect a great deal, celebrated on Oct. 31. She is a an excellent writer and a thoughtful person who has entertained me with her fiction, and opened my eyes and ears to new music, new writers, and a broader world. May you birthday have been a very good one, celebrated with people you love.

On Nov. 2 don_fitch celebrated a birthday. Happy belated birthday wishes to someone who is gentle, observant, pithy, witty, and a gardener to boot.

Then, just a couple of days ago, on Nov. 5, the highly estimable erikvolson celebrated a birthday. I raise a figurative glass of good beer in your direction, sir, and hope that we can see each other sometime in the coming year.

Finally, Happy, Happy Birthday to cathica, a brilliant writer of both fic and professional fiction. She is also extremely kind and thoughtful, proof that  fandom contains some remarkably lovely people. I hope some day to meet you in person, and share some time with you. May your year be free of bears, and full of inspiration, good health, friendship and love!

Thank you muchly! Today was a good day. I spent part of this morning in the outpatients', waiting to get antibiotics for an eye infection, but every clerk, nurse, and doctor who noticed the date wished me a happy birthday. I got a lovely load of swag, too, including a Grumpy Cat journal. And some pumpkin chai tea, which I'll be sipping tonight while I watch NCIS. All in all, a fine day. My eye is already feeling better, we haven't seen any bears, and I am indeed inspired. Thanks for the good wishes. 8)

I'm glad your eye is feeling better, and pumpkin chai tea sounds like a lovely thing. Many, many happy (and bear-less) returns of the day!

Thank you for the Birthday wishes, and I'm glad yours come by way of LiveJournal rather than FaceBook -- this one I can cope with fairly well, whereas the other doesn't play well (or at all) with my software (though once I get the ridulously-expensive new computer up & working things might go better).

I hope your life is chugging along reasonably well.

Hello, Don! It is so good to "see" you here!

Life is ... interesting. My company of 20-plus years just sold my section of itself to its main competitor; after being a Sun-Times company reporter, I now belong to the Tribune. The saving grace is that the Tribune agreed to maintain our editorial contracts, which is quite something for that insanely anti-union company to do.

My hubby needs to find out why his thyroid is making him miserable, now that we've ruled out cancer; my 30-year-old son is working three jobs and dealing with a good relationship. My cats are relatively healthy, and I keep sane by being here on Teh Intarwebz, writing fanfic (yes, yes I do that), and in general indulging in fandom the only way I can these days.

On the whole? I'd rate things fairly well. Heh.
