Just so you know...

I observe John Moses Browning's birthday a day late so that it coincides with my own and I can therefore justify sleeping in. We'll get the free ice cream machine cranked up shortly.

As an aside, one of the more interesting artifacts of the internet age is that the most popular web forum software packages send out automated "Happy Birthday!" emails to registered members. Every year, therefore, if you're an internet nerd like me, you get presented with an inbox full of birthday greetings from every forum at which you have ever registered. "GoldfishBreedersChat.com? When was I there? And why?"

EDIT: A birthday shout-out at SurvivalBlog.com! That's pretty cool. :)

Felicitations.

I get those silly emails all year long because -- I LIE to websites.

What on earth do they need my birthday for?

It might also be observed that you celebrate Robbie Burns' a day early. Not quite JMB, but pretty much as well renowned in his own field.

Surrounded by talent, you are :-)

Link on SurvivalBlog.com is "booksbikesboomsticks.blogspot.ch". I thought that odd. Even odder that it works.

Never miss an opportunity to lie about your birthday to rude strangers who ask when it is.

Happy birthday Tam. I have to admit, everything I think I know about blogging and properly behaving on teh interweb I learned from you.

It's not your fault though, I've always been a horrible student.

I always tell websites I was born on Jan 1st.

That way I get the Happy B'day spam then, and can just trash it without trashing such mails from folks I know.

Goldfishbreederschat.com sounds more in line with my interests. I'm not much of a forum goer, but aquatics tend to be my one exception. Granted, I don't keep goldfish. Filthy boring things.
