Busy Day of Honors on my friends list - RonO's Ramblings — LiveJournal
Aug. 27th, 2009 08:44 am Busy Day of Honors on my friends list
As I've been spending more time than usual responding to postings today (one LJ posting and several Facebook wall posts) in honor of what I put my mother through 43 years ago today and have seen several other postings, I have now become aware that this day on the calendar is more than just a day in late August, often near Worldcon.
So, Happy Birthday to kevin_standlee who is one year older than me (unless he chooses to discount the year he missed his birthday on the way to Aussicon) and Happy Anniversary to billroper and daisy_knotwise; and, of course, anyone else I missed.
And also if I missed saying "Thank You" for any of the birthday greetings I've received, "Thank You."
And a happy birthday back at you, and thanks for remembering my story about how August 27, 1999 never happened for me thanks to it vanishing into the International Date Line on my flight to Aussiecon 3.
I remembered because the only reason the same thing didn't happen for me was that robot_grrl and I didn't leave on the right (or wrong) day. Looking at the calendar, I'm guessing that we left on the 27th, or possibly on the 20th (I don't think I had 3 weeks of vacation then, I barely had two IIRC). But I don't recall it being my birthday either.
