Dept. of Birthdays

Passed, and Almost Over

Many happy returns of the day to friends I'm lucky to know. (And even those whose birthdays have passed - well, consider this my wish that the days after your actual birthday were just as good, or even better.)

To
[personal profile] rmjwell , an aficionado of bodies, dance, photography and incisive thoughts and comments, many happy returns of Oct. 4 - may it have been an excellent day, with family and friends around you. It was a joy to get to know you all those years ago when you were a Midwesterner, and I still look forward to the day when you're able to come east from the Left Coast to visit.

To
[personal profile] supergee , who was the very first person to suggest to me, via his own activity, that one could enjoy a lively social and mental life via online journaling, a very happy birthday today (at least there are still a few hours in Oct. 6.) You were always a master of both brevity and, when necessary, extended essaying. I valued that as far back as the old rasff days on Usenet of blessed memory. I tried to learn from your example, and occasionally I do well at it. Many happy returns of the day.

And finally, to
[personal profile] heatherbelles , who is now well on her way to Oct. 7 - I'm told that your Oct. 6 was very good, filled with family, as well as an excellent curry. Huzzah! Although our communication is much less regular than when TWoP was a thing, I'm so glad that I came to know you there. I learned about history, how to look at history, and how to help other people look at it, thanks to you. And of course, we shared a love of Dr. Who that I think we still share. I am glad to have met you, and hope that we continue to stay in touch in some fashion.

Good Omens, Part the First and a Half

Many thanks to
[personal profile] elisi for finding me so many links to read about both the book and the television series - I'm diving into one of owls' pieces now. I will be responding to your comments on my previous Good Omens post, but I need time and brain.

What I can tell you is the following:

a) I am impressed with the depth of intellectual diving being done by people, and with such obvious joy.
b) Who knew there was a Good Omens fan base in the 30 years prior to the series? (Oh, people who read the book prior to immediately before the series, and people who, unlike me, really fell in love with Pratchett's work.)
c) AND THIS IS IMPORTANT
