Happy Birthday Melissa!

Birthdays

When you have your birthday two days after Christmas, do you simply get larger 'combined' presents? Or do you just get more of them? Sounds like a pretty good deal to me either way, but we could ask our own Melissa Anelli to be sure! That's right! Our very own 'big cheese' Melissa 'coffee cup' Anelli has a birthday today, and I twisted Sue's and Edward's arms into letting me tell the Leaky world about it! As I write this I suspect her first present of the day may be arriving... the last time I was at her apartment I trained Moochka to bring her breakfast in bed and she just about had the hang of it, so here's hoping that went well. I wish I could be in New York to celebrate with her, but the best I can do this year is raise the first glass to the girl who keeps all of us here at Leaky on our toes - one of Harry's most loyal fans, the funniest New Yorker on PotterCast we've ever had, and the only person I know who makes better guacamole then Chipotle. I'm crazy proud to say she's my 'other' favorite published author, most patient teacher of good grammar, and my best friend :)  Happy Birthday Melis!!

Happy Birthday Melissa!
I know you probably won’t read this in person, but thank you so much for everything you have done for the Leaky Cauldron. You’ve made the lives of sooooo many Harry fans easier, happier, more fun… I read your book. It was amazing. I swear half my week was spent reading, talking about it, thinking about it- you’re an amazing author. The book was so colorful and vivid. I was born just about when the Harry Potter mania began, so I never really had the chance to see it grow. You gave me that chance. I felt so Potter Obsessed! It was awesome! I think that book gave Potter Fandom a second chance.
Thank you so much for everything you have done in my life and soooo many others. Happy Birthday!!!!!
