Title: A birthdays thread
Post by: Is it cold in here? on 15 Oct 2014, 12:48
Since someone's always having a birthday.

That someone is mighty selfish. Why are they always having a birthday? Why are they so special that it's always their birthday?

Don't we already have a thread like this? Pretty sure I remember it, because it was made right before my birthday one year. It's funny since this one is too, my birthday is on Monday.

I only looked as far back as January.

Dammit, why didn't I see this topic yesterday, it was my 32nd.
A day late, and if I check my wallet, it'll be a dollar short.

Happy belated birthdays!

It turns out the forum software has a feature to send out automated birthday email. I hate the idea but will hear out anything in its favor.

It's a nice touch, if it's implemented well. If it's a standard boring text, it's rather meh.

Mine is coming up really soon, on 4 May.  35.  Fucking shite.  I'm pretty much thinking of just ignoring the whole thing.  It's not like its a milestone or anything, just being another year older.

Danke.  I still have mixed feelings about the whole thing, but it might be fun.  Recently, I just found out that a friend shares the same birthday.  For some reason my brain went straight to the birthday problem.  Like how I have two exes who both share the exact same birth date.

despite adequate notification, it seems we missed you birthday. Apologies for that and a belated Happy Birthday Kugai. In my defence I was out all day celebrating my birthday. It was lovely, I had McDonalds and a midlife crisis.

No problem TSK.  Had a good day and, thanks to a generous gift from my Aunt up the line, was able to go out and have a Steak Lunch as a treat.  :)

My arbitrary date at which I'm considered responsible enough to legally consume alcohol day is a mere 4 days away.

This gives me pause, since that would mean you are legally old enough to be my son/daughter.

(Actually, I figured it out - August 1st of 2015 is "the day", technically.)

Today is the day my father in law turns 90. 

My wife and daughters went to surprise him, along with my sister in law (his other daughter). 

I had to stay home to work a few of my jobs and care for the animals. 

tried posting a photo of him from facebook, but as usual, I don't know what I'm doing...

It's my birthday again, and the annual depression seems to be subsiding a bit.  I was able to force myself out to the kava bar for several hours and talk to people which is good.

I am, allegedly, 57 today.

This is clearly an error, since if it were possible it would have happened before.
Title: Re: A birthdays thread
Post by: pwhodges on 23 Oct 2018, 04:32
Are you still 57 today?  Then it has occurred before, and so has the ring of truth!

Many happy returns (or "sequential events", since the same birthday never returns except as a polite fiction...)

I am going to a blanket fort party fortuitously scheduled for my birthday.

It is a little odd to know that I am now older than my mother was when she died.

I wrote to a friend recently with a "Promise not to laugh" lead-in. I explained that I was going to a cuddle party, but since real ones were impossible I would address the need by picking a time as if it were a meetup and cuddling a giant stuffed dog (my wife was sheltering in another state at the time).

She said that the next time I arranged such a thing, she wanted me to tell her in advance so she could do the same at the same time together in spirit.

Everyone's invited to an imaginary cuddle party for my birthday. It's October 15, 8-9 PM PDT. Timeanddate.com will convert for you. If you want to "attend", snuggle a partner or pet or stuffed animal at that time while reflecting on everyone else doing the same with shared intent.
Title: Re: A birthdays thread

You should set up an event invite. If you don't I'll put it in my calendar.

PDT is UTC-7, so eight hours behind my time zone (Berlin) - That's four in the morning for me.

I'll try to not-drop by later and think very hard about helping with the dishes.

Eight hours would be right for CET, but we're currently running CEST. So it's a nine hour difference, so 8-9PM PDT is 5-6AM CEST.

If I happen to be awake at that time (senile bed flight kicking in, maybe), I'll do a surrogate cuddle. Blanket or pillow are strong candidates for that.
