Happy birthday, Eisha!

“There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents … and only one for birthday presents, you know.” — Lewis Carroll

My apologies that this is not book-related, but it’s a quick birthday greeting to Eisha, my blog partner-in-crime and true friend, who turns 22 today (tee hee). Eisha, this is a Miri Pi drawing for you; it’s a three-eyed dude (hey, she’s two) and a birthday balloon for you. I know it’s small, but when I try to make it bigger, it’s even more difficult to see. Anyway, happy birthday and may you celebrate with lots of wine and sweet words (to paraphrase Plautus — not that I’ve been reading Roman playwrights of late, but I saw that quote somewhere before). — Jules

Edit: Tech support is in the house. Happy birthday, Eisha. Also, I’m pretty sure that’s a nose, not a third eye… B


Tech support is no longer in the house…

  10. happy, happy birthday eisha! here’s to many more beers and shared meals at grendel’s. have a wonderful day!

  11. No, I was there when she drew it; the small dot under the eyes is a nose. Hey, Eisha, did you know you share a b’day with Sean Penn and Robert DeNiro?

  12. Woo! Happy Birthday! 😉

  13. Birthday?

    Just kidding.

  14. Here is your word for the day:


  15. Eisha ~

    Here’s wishing you the grandest of birthdays. Hope you are well!

  16. Wow! I am overwhelmed! Thank you all!

    I had no idea this many people were actually reading the blog…

    And I like the three eyes. If e.e. cummings can have a “goat-footed balloon man” then why not a three-eyed balloon man?

  17. well, folks might have gotten a little nudge from, ahem, someone about this *particular* post in order to wish you o! happy day. aw, you are obviously very loved. but, yes, i have no doubt that folks not only read the blog but have also bookmarked it, check it every five minutes, and constantly ponder the books we review. that’s the ticket! — jules

  18. Happy birthday (one day late!) to you! I wish you all my very best for a fun year ahead!!!

  19. No one nudged me!

    Happy day after!

  20. Happy Unbirthday, E! (I mean, it is two days late, now, huh). Best wishes on turning 22, (are you backdating or channeling Benjamin Button?)

  21. Happy birthday, Eisha–albeit a bit late. Thanks for telling me about this site!
