FORTY-FIVE

Posted on 2006.10.06 at 02:55
I'm now Forty-five years old.

It brings no revelations that I'm aware of, but then, it's not quite three in the morning,so the day is still young.

Happy Birthday - I hope you have a pleasant day. *e-hug*

I've rather given up on expecting revelations with birthdays - but I'm sure we are both like good wine ( or maybe cheese ) and improve with keeping.

I suppose going back to sleep isn't really an option? I find I need a bit less sleep these days, but more is still better - I've no plans to turn into Margaret Thatcher any time soon.

Thanks so much!

No, I really didn't expect a revelation, either, but it seems encumbent on one to try to come up with something for a bit "round number" birthdya, so...

I'm pretty insomniac these days, so I'm used to being up at an hour of the morning that sane folk consider the middle of the night. I'll probably try to get some writing in. (Sorry you seem to have gotten off that particular train!)

Still reading and enjoying your stories, guv - just haven't thought of anything particularly articulate to say lately - and "yeah, cool story" seems a bit dull.

I think my brain has been full of cotton wool lately - and I know you take comments seriously ( Sirusly? ) so I want to try and only say stuff that I've thought through properly.

Oh, that's wonderful to hear! (The "still reading and enjoying" part, not the cotton wool, part, which I know can be annoying.)

I'm so glad you're still here!

Wasn't that a movie with Bil Murray and Andee McDowell?

Seriously, thanks!

It would appear that you share this day with grownupron....not a huge revelation, but mildly interesting.

I went by his LJ to wish him a happy birthday, but his most recent entry is pictures of muscular guys (and a woman) and an exhortation to get in shape. So I'm not so sure it's the appropriate venue for 27 stone or so worth of me to pop up with good wishes...

so of course i had to go see.....

to be honest, i can't imagine much that is LESS appealling than all that buffed self indulgent arrogance.

but i won't go say that there.... i'm not THAT much of a stirrer....

Yeah, I feel there's a strong delta between his nature and interests and mine.

That's all right, though. It's a big enough old world.

i am not cute and cuddly.

i am stern and stand-offish.

but you're forgiven because it's your birthday....

Oh, sorry, my mistake. You're no more cute and cuddly than Shari is sweet...

No, it's pretty gorgeous here today.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, and here, lemme hug you back. Hugs are a social good.

Thank you so much. I plan to spend part of it reading a bit of "Clean Sweep" fic, so I know that it's at least partially going to be great!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! 45 WOOHOO!

I hope you have a wonderful day today!

Any fun plans for celebrating? Yeah for the Shari fic, I'm heading over to read now.

Thank you so much!

Plans for celebrating? Thus far, just to sit around with a stupid grin while thinking about the fact that Shari wrote me a story! God, that's like, "Paul McCartney wrote you a song for your birthday!"

Thanks very much Step. I'm home from work now, and looking forward to an evening of solitude and relaxation.

You're far from late, and I'm ever glad to hear from you.

This is a bit belated, at least in Australian time, but

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope you have/had (what time is it over there? :S) a BLOODY FANTASTIC BIRTHDAY - you deserve it!

So sorry I couldn't say that yesterday but my brother was hogging the computer playing Age of Empires for eight hours straight. *rolls eyes*

But enjoy yourself, make the most of it and hope you have your relevations sometime today! :D

Oh, Tash, I just missed you by about a half-hour. WHen you posted, it was Ten minutes past Nine in hte evening, and what I did with the rest of my birthday was kip. It's now twenty past three the next morening, and I'm done with that.

Did I get a revelation for my birthay? No, not really. I already knew what lovely, talented, and generous folks reside on my Friends List.

But between Shari writing me a Birthday Fic, all the wonderful greetings and wishes I received, and so many of the great folks here swinging by to say a hearty "hello," and welcome PutMoneyInThyPurse (AKA sarahenany) to LJ, yesterday was the best birthday I can remember.

So, thanks, my sweet friend, for your lovely birthday wishes! They're very much appreciated.
harry_lvr at 2006-10-07 10:53 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, dammit, I just missed you. I'm so sorry about that :(

But I'm so glad that you had a fabulous day, despite waking up at an ungodly hour! ;) Enjoy being 45!

Oh, come here and get squished, you!

*SQUISH!*


You were fine, and I certainlydidn't feel neglected. I just got sleepy early.

And I did have a fabulous day, and I thank you. (Oh, and it was great to see you amongst the Sarah-greeters! I hadn't dropped by and noticed that by the time I answered you before.)
