The best birthday ever

by J J Cohen

I have never received so many text messages, emails, Facebook wallposts, e-cards, Hallmark cards, cookies, high fives, hugs, and iPhone photos as I have today. I do believe that this hoopla has less to do with me than with another big event, but I'm happy for coat tails all the same. Thanks, everyone!

Thanks, Dan and Dr V!

Dr V, I just tried to post at your blog to finish off your toast, but for some reason it wouldn't accept my comment. So here it is.

I like what you wrote, especially the rhetorically mellifluous anaphora, epiphora, and so on ... but I would suggest that you end the toast with aposiopesis, because if you don't well then -- !

OK, you're the second person to tell me that, so I've changed things back to the old style pop-up window. Maybe that will help.

And also -- hee!
