a happy birthday

I've had a fantastic birthday! I didn't make any plans, as I often don't. I remembered it was my birthday when I woke up, but as I don't generally keep a facebook tab open, and haven't run biff(1) or any of its descendants for 20 years ... what can I say? It got swapped out. To the point where, an hour into the first of the wonderful hour+ phone calls I've had today whth three of my favorite people on Earth:

"So, any particular reason you called?"
"Happy birthday!"
"Oh, right." Then, through the gales of laughter on both ends, "Boy, I'm never going to hear the end of this, am I?
(Which, looking at it, sounds contrived. But I'm not a good enough actor to fake being that clueless.)

In the spirit of spreading around the warm-fuzzies: Years ago, back when text was the medium we communicated on on the 'net, a friend a thousand miles away needed a hug. Now I want to embrace all of you.

I miss hand-crafted ASCII art.
