Happy Birthday to me...
Happy Birthday to me...
Happy Birthday MEEEEEEEEEE
Happy Birthday to me...

On this day, the aniversary of my birth, I give you some trivia about the day I was born:
  • I was born just over 3months premature.
  • I weighed about 3lbs.
  • I was probably smaller than your hand.

Now...
  • I'm 26 years old.
  • I weigh too much (though I'm working on that).
  • I'm 6'3" tall.

The more things stay the same, the more they change huh?

Happy Birthday to you! :)

My mom worked with the really, really preemies when she did her second residency. You could see their organs through their skin. Really can see why we need 9 months to bake.

Hope you're having a good trip as well.

Yeah, I was predicted to not survive the night.. then the week, then the month...

In fact my birth was evidence that doctors don't always know what they are talking about (including telling my mother, whilst in contractions, that she wasn't actually having me).

I'm beginning to think that most doctors only have a 50% accuracy rating...unfortunately, I seem to be dealing with the inaccurate 50% every time I go in...

Oooo yeah Miriam has that on DVD - I must watch it at some point. I love Seth Greens current show Robot Chicken (plus the random cameos of his friends like Macaulay Culkin).

Whoa
You're 6'3"? Holy cow, you're much bigger than I thought.

I figured you were, like, 5'6", tops. Dunno why - it may have been your LJ Icons.

Re: Whoa
Really?? Wait... you've seen me in person though haven't you?? You came to the 2002 Eve fanfest right?

Re: Whoa
I don't recall meeting you in person; I didn't go to the 2002 EVE FanFest (too far of a trip for me at the time) so I'm not sure where else we could have met.

Unless you've secretly been stalking me. That would explain the spy cameras I keep finding around my house.

Happy Birthday you. Hope you have had a fantastic day. This side of the pond misses you! Think you could bottle some sunshine and send it up towards Manchester?.. it's bloody grey all the time up here!!

Actually its grey here now, and was yesterday. The weather is all messed up here for the time of year... so many people complaining about it. It's like being back in the UK! ;)
