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! Leaky wouldn’t be the same without you, and seeing as I can’t imagine my life without Leaky…well, you can see the picture. Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Melissa! Hope you have a great one.

And by the way John, it’s “better guacamole THAN Chipotle” not “then”

I hope Moochka didn’t confuse John’s lessons on delivering food with my lessons on using the potty instead of the litter box (helping green up the earth by giving Melissa a litter free apartment! Moochka has it down pretty well but is having trouble with the flush).

Oh well. Happy Birthday, Melissa!
