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!!

Belated Birthday Greets! Heh, it was my 11th wedding anniversary… we took the kids to see Desperaux. :)

I finished Harry: A History on the 23rd, and handed it to my sister from Long Is., who will bring it to our eldest sister, who now works in Manhattan… the other HP maven of the family. :)

Thanks for helping to bring us together Melissa… it just wouldn’t have been the same without Leaky, eh?

Melissa, December 27 is my birthday too, and for my birthday (and yours), I purchased your book and spent all day today reading it. Thanks for taking me on a great trip down memory lane. Happy birthday!

OMG Melissa! We have the same b-day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I know it is 2 days too late but I was out that day celebrating. I used to get 1 present for both Christmas and my b-day from some people which was really annoying as a kid. Now, I don’t care as much!

Happy Belated B-day Melissa.

Here’s for 29 and counting. So next year is the 1st anniversary of your 29th B-day. For what it’s worth, for me 30 wasn’t so bad. Now 31 was no longer 30…..That was harder.

Happy birthday!
I got your book for Christmas and I stay up until about 2 every night because I can’t put it down XD Anyway, I hope it was good, even though I’m posting this two days later haha.
