It is Grania’s birthday!

I just realized that today is Grania’s birthday. I know she’ll hate my posting this (and she didn’t mention it in the Hili Dialogue she wrote this morning), but it’s a chance for me and the readers to thank her for her service to this website. She has never refused to keep the site going during my numerous absences due to travel, and for that I’m immensely grateful. Not to mention the numerous posts she contributes herself.

    I’m afraid Facebook has misled Jerry. It really is not my birthday at all, it is my sister’s.

    But thank you all anyway 🙂

      Not the first time that FB has promulgated fake news. Have a happy day, anyway.

      We should still fete Grania for her selfless devotion to this site! And I declare it her Honorary Birthday!

      Then, a very merry unbirthday to you (yes, you), Grania.

        Ooops, I did an embedding no no there. Sorry. 😱

          The rule against embedding can’t apply to an unbirthday can it? I thought not. So feel perfectly free to feel unsorry. 😎

    Well, have a great day anyway Grania! WEIT is one of my favorite places on the internet and I appreciate all you do to help maintain it.

    Hell, I don’t know what your age is but I am old enough that non-birthday days are more reason for celebrating than birthdays.

  19. Posted May 24, 2017 at 10:16 am | Permalink

    Even if it’s not your birthday Grania, thanks for all your hard work supporting WEIT and us eager readers! We really appreciate it!

    What everyone else said. Have a lovely day Grania, whatever day it is. You always do a great job when you take over, and we also get cultural allusions I understand like LOTR and Star Trek. 🙂

    Happy Birthday Grania!

    … what is it like to get Birthday wishes from unknown, anonymous entities on the internet that well could be artificial intelligence?

    Happy Birthday Grania…thanks for all your great posts! Thanks especially for creating the famous (or infamous) birthdays / death days in the Hili dialog. I’m glad Jerry continues to post them as well.
