I am, allegedly, 57 today.

This is clearly an error, since if it were possible it would have happened before.

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.

The 20's suck in comparison to the 30's. You're going to do great.

It's my 35th birthday today. A friend congratulated me by stating that I now am closer to my 50th birthday than to my 20th.

50 is painless...

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.

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.

Perhaps a weblink with something that'll load automagically with iCal or whatever similar things Giggle or M$ have?

You mean the one that I just took down because I tested it and it took me to a page that had nothing to do with the event?

Today (Jan 6th) is my birthday. Too bad its a bit of a downer what with the goings on with the US capitol.

I have entered my 30s! It's been an amazing birthday, my husband put together a video of birthday messages from loved ones and it was so special. I've been crying happy tears all day.
