And here are some old tweets of mine on the subject of birthdays:

The birthday playlist today: Floyd Norman/an animated life; Beauty is Embarrassing; Letterman/Seinfeld interviewing each other; Late Night with David Letterman 10th Anniversary Special; El Norte. (March 20, 2022)

I’ve seen 3 cars tooling around San Diego this summer with the greasepaint message β€œit’s my 21st birthday buy me a drink VENMO ______”

Our futuristic future is inane. (August 3, 2021)

Two distinct life insurance advertisements in my paper mail today, both of which mention my upcoming birthday. In case you were wondering where I stand, demographically. And actuarially. (March 1, 2021)

For my birthday last week my sister masterminded me getting sung to and it melted my heart

My whole wide entire family managed to throw me with a birthday party and my father traveled 2400 miles. All of it a giant surprise. I am so lucky.

Very proud to share my birthday with Mr. Rogers, Spike Lee & Lee Scratch Perry. March 20, 2019

Complete irrelevance of Google Plus indicated by lack of birthday greetings using Google Plus. Social networks need birthdays to thrive. March 20, 2017

My usual measure of Facebook vs Google+ is birthday message count. Facebook continues winning by terrifying margin.

You know who I miss? I miss MC 900 Ft Jesus, that’s who. Do we celebrate his birthday? If not, why not. np: “I’m going straight to heaven” December 8, 2007

I just had the last of the amazing strawberry cake my mom made me for my birthday. March 24, 2010

And that was the last strawberry cake my mother ever made.

I will definitely be re-watching Floyd Norman: An Animated Life and Beauty is Embarrassing today because those movies inspire me. Animated Life in particular is about defying expectations and age and creating no matter what.

Lastly, here are past blog posts I made on my birthday
