I was sorely tempted to make a "." comment but realized in time that it would scan as either sarcastic or morbid and so instead I've written this. Happy birthday: one fewer comment to delete at user's request!

Happy birthday Jahaza, and all these other nice people. Appreciate the well-wishes folks. I will be working this morning and then trying to finish up all the birthday cupcakes (yes, with buttercream frosting) my sister made me before heading from MA to VT tomorrow.

I'm trying to work out some kind of 'Jessamyn the yodelin' cowgirl' bit here, but I'm not really coming up with anything. First off, I don't know if Jessamyn can yodel. Jessamyn, do you yodel? Well, if not, your birthday is a good time to start. Vermont could become a hotbed of yodeling. The Yodeling Librarians of Vermont! Yes! Be the change you want to see. Lead the way. Start yodeling now. RIGHT NOW!

Other people who have birthdays today, go to hell! You are nothing to me, nothing! Except for Jahaza, because that would be mean and awkward!
posted by Alvy Ampersand at 8:34 AM on September 5, 2013


Was about to answer "Jessamyn!", then realized that the fiancee - also a librarian - may not be amazingly happy.

So, to my favorite JP, inspiration for getting things done, author of books about the digital divide, 24/7 hat wearer, and second favorite librarian: happy birthday!

I'd love to wish you a happy birthday Jessamyn, but I actually sat thinking about it for a moment and what I'd really wish for you is for every little thing that matters to you now and the things that don't matter now but will matter later slowly get more and more awesome until you're just sitting with your favorite drink some years from now and thinking, "Ya know, all this awesomeness started right around my birthday in 2013. Cool."

I can say without exaggeration that Jessamyn is one of the nicest people I've met in person. I don't know how she manages to be so decent and forgiving to everybody - even when they don't deserve it - but she does. That is enough alone to deserve a week of birthdays.

Happy happy birthday Jessamyn!!

This is my new mantra: Thanks, I've been playing with it all day!

Literally none of those rhyme with "Jessamyn," and "Skelton" doesn't even have the right number of syllables.
