So. Birthday.

I have had the traditional birthday scone, and some lovely leftovers for lunch, and then my young friend F. invited me along for tea with her and some other friends (it's always best to make sure that someone has the authority to do that when they're a kid and the youngest member of an already-established event and not the guest of honor, but in fact it worked out all for the best), so that's all been really good. And I've had good e-mails and lj and FB greetings and cards and packages, and a family party last night, and lo these many fine things. And very soon a chocolate raspberry malt. And I am reading about a sixteenth century heretic, and as I said on e-mail to a friend, nothing says birthday like sixteenth-century heresy. And there is a fair amount of birthdaying yet to come even aside from sixteenth-century heresy.

I am still struggling with the side-effects of this new treatment, and I'm still having a hard time talking about it, but today is good, today is quite tolerable in that regard and good in other regards, and I hope you're having a very good my birthday, too.

Happy birthday!

Are you planning to use the heretic as a good or a bad example?

Heretics are often really more decorative than utilitarian.

Happy Birthday! Somehow I missed this. I hope that you have lots and lots of additional birthdaying that makes you super-happy, be it heretical, delicious, or otherwise.

Happy birthday!

One of my college friends wanted to start a journal called Popular Heresy.

Many happy returns of the day. Hope it continues swell, with added heresy.

Chocolate raspberry malts should be required for birthdays. I will have one this evening in your honor, assuming I survive mowing the wilds of my back yard.

Oooh, must remember to lay in a bit of Giordano Bruno for my upcoming birthday celebrations. Unless you have a superior 16th century heresy to recommend?

This is not so much a superior heresy per se but a pretty good book on a very particular heretic.

I hope you continue to have a good, tolerable birthday. And here's hoping tomorrow is okay too.
