Je viens d'obtenir dix-sept ans

Post by GlottalGreekGeek » Sun Oct 02, 2005 7:33 pm

Today is my birthday. Sweet seventeen. Not quite eighteen.

EDIT : This is also my 200th post, making me a Textkit Fan rather than a mere Textkit member.

EDIT 2 : It has been exactly one year since this original post. Guess what?

Félicitations, GGG, que tu aies une journée merveilleuse! And congratulations on your newly acquired status, - I am a fan, too. I think the next level is 'enthusiast' at 350 posts.

Happy B-day Kiddo!

I can't believe you're only 17...wow! BTW, I still think you should teach Greek...you'd be an awesome teacher. FWIW though, the head of our faculty (who is also one of our Greek profs, who worked on the original NIV translation of the Bible) was a Drama major in college!

Slick...happy birthday...yesterday was my daughter's birthday too...ei decem annos est! Also, I noticed, according to my calendar, it's also the Queen's Birthday as celebrated in Western Australia.

Yes, I'm actually in my majority now (yesterday my mother sang a song about how if I break the law she will no longer be held responsible - a very tongue in cheek song, mind you).

My birthday is also a national holiday in India ... well, they aren't celebrating my birthday for *me*, because I haven't had enough time bring a new form of non-violent protest to the world, nor free a large country from British rule ... but still, a billion people a year celebrate my birthday, which is cool.
