2/21/08: Today is not my birthday  
Word count: 127462 | Since last entry: 179

I was born on February 21, 1961. Today is February 21, 2008. I'm just getting over a mild cold. Kate got it too, but she's a couple of days behind me, coughy and achy and low on energy, so she didn't have the wherewithal to get me a card or anything. That's okay. And my parents are away on a trip to Phoenix, so they didn't send a card and couldn't call today, but they gave me a call yesterday. That's okay too. At least I got an e-card from my dentist and an LJ note from allanh.

In the morning I did some revisons, then we went to a play (A Feminine Ending, which I greatly enjoyed) and had a nice lunch at Henry's and did some preliminary research for our forthcoming bathroom remodel, but in the early afternoon we ran out of energy and fell over until dark. When it came time for dinner, Kate said "you eat, I'm not hungry."

As I was making some toast to put leftover curry on, I decided that... well, I have pretty low standards for birthdays, really, but this doesn't cut it.

So I have decided to reschedule David's Birthday (Observed) to 2/25 this year.

**big hugs**

Wish I could deliver one in person, if only to make your birthday (actual) a little bit better.

May you have a wonderful birthday (observed).

Happy Birthday! I have you in my google calendar now, so next year you will not catch me unawares. I hope your do-over goes well.

Hey! I'm exactly 7 days older than you are! I never knew that.

And I think it's a fine idea to reschedule your birthday until you can enjoy it. I'm also a big fan of the Birthday Week. So happy birthday for today and in advance. Whee!

Thanks much.

Is that a... rat cake?

I think it's wonderful that you have control over the calendar like that! Happy birthday now and again in two weeks! :-)

Hey, my little brother's birthday is today, too! How very cool.

Happy (unobserved) birthday. We shall have to make a point of observing your birthday properly several days from now.
David D. Levinedavidlevine on February 22nd, 2008 07:13 am (UTC)
Much obliged. And happy birthday to your brother!

Not much appreciated. Not.

Is 1961 a typo?
David D. Levinedavidlevine on February 22nd, 2008 07:12 am (UTC)
[looks at date upside down to make sure] Nope, that's correct. I am an old man of forty-seven. Um, or will be on my birthday, which is 2/25 this year.

You are always allowed to reschedule your own birthday, and it sounds like you have good reason. Happy birthday, for when I forget Monday.

Happy birthday and congratulations on the Nebula nomination. I don't think their timing was intentional. :-)
David D. Levinedavidlevine on February 22nd, 2008 03:02 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Does that mean it's public? I saw the post in the SFWA private group last night but didn't want to say anything until it was officially released.

Love the hat...

This is either a belated (real) birthday acknowledgment, or a very early (observed) birthday acknowledgment.

In any case, Happy Birthday.

Hey, you could just extend it to a birthday fortnight, that way you can include Potlatch. Happy birthday, youngun.
