It's your birthday, too. Yeah!

Today it's my birthday! But, wait! That's not all! It's also the birthday of some pretty amazing writers and readers of the Spike oeuvre. Some of whom just happen to be on my f-list. *busts buttons to be in such august company* So, let's give up some warm birthday fist pumps for abelina, brunettepet, and snickfic! Also:kathylovesspike, lauratd, _sharvie_, and spuffyduds! My goodness! Isn’t that such of lot of talent all born on one day? Why, yes. Yes, it is. Whatever could have been going on 36-42 weeks prior to this auspicious day? Would you believe, New Year’s Eve? I haven’t worked up the nerve to ask my folks if my suspicions are correct, but there sure seem to be a lot of us. And we all seem pretty ready to party. If you’re going to rain on my parade by telling me that the birthrate is evenly distributed throughout the year or something, don’t bother. I’m happy in my rose-colored autumnal birthday capsule.

The really cool thing is that Joss knew just what to get me this year! All those years of him whining that I'm so hard to shop for have really worn me down. I keep telling him not to bother with fancy jewelry or cars, 'cos that's just not me, you know? But this year, he got it right, finally, by giving me a new season of Dollhouse! Isn't he the sweetest thing!

In other, fic writing news, I signed up for seasonal_spuffy, and my assigned day is less than 2 weeks away. I'm hoping the panic sets in soon enough that I can hammer out something decent, but time's a-wastin'. Plus, there's that Darla ficathon thing due at the end of October, and I just know that the seasonal_sd mod will announce a new round any second now. Have I mentioned that I work best under pressure? At least, I hope I do. Anybody wanna be my baby beta?

Psst! If you want to give one of your writer/artist friends a birthday thrill, try leaving a comment for something they did awhile back. That warm fuzzy feeling just lasts and lasts.

Happy Friday, everybody!

How cool is that? I get a new friend and a birthday-buddy all in one day!

Happy birthday to us!

And you made it better with the Beatles reference in your title :D

I have to admit, it was the birthday thing that got me off my lazy friending behind. I'd meant to do it for some time, but it would have required 4-5 clicks. The horror! Somehow, today I found the strength to muddle through...must be the vitamin B (birthday!). Happy, happy to you!

Life is indeed grand, m'dear. Thanks for you lovely wishes, and for making the attempt with those ungrateful dollies. They've got to know how much worse it would go for them with a less understanding and kind-hearted woman. Tsk. *mphmf!* No. Really.

Thanks, Brilliant! I'm a happy camper, indeed, not least because of not being camping, I suppose. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

OMG! Separated at birth! Tsk. That's just scary.

You are very, very kind to make such an offer. I will have to do things less last minute, clearly. C'mon, muse, ol' buddy. We can do this thing! Do it for clawofcat!

Isn’t that such of lot of talent all born on one day? It is indeed! Happy, happy, happy birthday! I hope you had a great one, what with new episodes of new seasons of the newest Joss show and all!

seasonal_spuffy is looming, isn't it? I'm sure whatever you produce will be awesome.

Birthday was pretty darned good. Joss just now knocked my socks completely off! Like, whoa! I'm gonna have to watch that one again, stat!

I appreciate your confidence in my abilities, but I'm not sure I share them, this time out. *shrug* Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.

I'm so glad you had a good day! And yeah, I'm totally planning on rewatching again today, just because I felt like there was so much going on that I might have missed.

Well, I wish you luck, then.

Happy birthday to us!

My goodness, I really was not expecting the outpouring of fannish birthday love. I hope you feel as appreciated on your birthday as I do. :)

Thanks again, sweetie! My birthday buddies are pretty awesome, and I think we all feel pretty well fêted. Not fetid. Not at all.

Thanks for making that distinction! I mean, I went for a bike ride today and was kinda sweaty earlier, but "fetid" might be a bit of an exaggeration, I think. lol.

Oh! This is like an embarrassment of riches thing, isn't it? I can work with that! Thanks for both of your happy wishes. *hunkers down to get something for y'all to beta*

Thanks, sweetie! It was all the nicer for the gift of a custom story with big, big themes!
