I was burning the midnight oil last night in order to finish my birthday dress/hotel opening dress but I have 2nd dress planned for my 35th birthday so stay tuned for the reviews!

All the best for this new year of life and keep sewing!

What a nice idea to wish a happy birthday to those who share the day!

I have to admit, though, that at first I thought it was cool that you'd wish a happy birthday to the fiercest lizard we'd ever had in the house:



My husband the biologist still has scars on his knuckle where our Tokay gecko bit him.

Wow, looks vicious, indeed!

And that is so funny! I learned a new thing today thanks to you, Elona!

Happy birthday, lakaribane and all. I love that 12/12/12 numbers thing, too.

This was the birthday of my first official boyfriend ever, lol. Somewhere on the planet I guess he's turning 60.

It's funny that "tokay" and geckos came up today, because I just saw something this morning on TV about tokay geckos. The last 10-15 minutes of this pretty cool kids show, if you must know. (Hey, I like to learn stuff.)

Happy birthday, all!

And thank you for sharing this wonderful word! How fascinating for a language and culture to see a need for such a term. :)
