It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to

Only I won't. But I do have an announcement to make:

Thanks to the interference of those who maintain LJ, and have set the default to 'Do Not Display Date Of Birth' without telling anyone (well, without telling me for starters), I daresay no one knows or remembers that today is, in fact, my birthday.

Indeed, from 7:31 pm it will have been exactly 44 years ago that I came into this world, the first child and eldest daughter of Jacques van W. (33) and Willy van G. (28), who at the time of my birth lived with my maternal grandmother in The Hague.

Anyway, you can leave your felicitations here ;-)

ETA: special, warm thanks to josephine64 for her lovely card. I'm really touched.

Thanks for singing me Happy Birthday -- maybe there's a place for you in Mariaschool, too!

I knew. You still appear on my Birthdays list and on the header in My LJ.

Happy birthday to you...

Really? I suppose I panicked a bit when bogwitch alerted me to the fact that my DOB had disappeared from my Info Page -- I'm such a drama queen!

Thanks for the birthday wishes, it's nice to have them.

Happy Birthday!

You are on my birthday list on 'My LJ'.

I am trying to resist the urge to find an owl as a birthday greeting for you!

You are on my birthday list on 'My LJ'.

Oh good -- I'll refrain from the blatant fishing for congratulations next year, then. But thank you for taking the bait today, though. ;-)

Happy Birthday!!! *cheers and hugs*

(I knew I shouldn't rely on the "Friends' Birthdays" list!)
Aug. 6th, 2006 01:57 pm (UTC)
'Friends Birthday List' is what I rely on, too -- I wonder how many people's birthdays I've missed in the last few weeks? It doesn't bear thinking about!

Happy Birthday!! Have a great one :)
Aug. 6th, 2006 01:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you - it hasn't been too bad so far!

Alright, you're on! It's been too long since I've seen db2305; it's about time I nudged her again -- and we should try and make it some time soon, while the weather holds...

*kicks LJ for being stupid!*

Hippy happy Birthday to you!

Have a great day: )
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much; I intend to!
Aug. 6th, 2006 09:53 am (UTC)
Happy happy birthday! Have a fantastic day!
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:03 pm (UTC)
See what a sly, underhand stratagem can do? I'm drowning in congratulations! :D
Aug. 6th, 2006 09:59 am (UTC)
Happy Birthday!

It's only 11.30am here so these are early birthday greetings. I hope your day is a wonderfully happy one.

*kicks LG again for doing things unbeknown to us*

I think it may be part of an evil plan to make us abandon LJ in favour of Vox -- methink SixApart have been protesting too much that nothing could be further from their mind.

Anyway, thanks for the b'day wishe; much appreciated!
Aug. 6th, 2006 10:41 am (UTC)
happy b'day!
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks muchly!

There was cake. There's even some left over!

happy birthday!
Helloo! Your birthday came up on my "My LJ" page, so something must be working.

Aug. 6th, 2006 02:11 pm (UTC)
Re: happy birthday!
It seems everyone who checks their 'My LJ'-page was in the know...but those who, like me, rely on 'Friends Birthdays' didn't get the information.

Thank the Daleks for their banner, will you? I never realised they could be this friendly!
Aug. 6th, 2006 12:05 pm (UTC)
Happy Happy Birthday Dear.
I hope it is as wonderful as you are.
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:11 pm (UTC)
Aww...thank you!
Aug. 6th, 2006 12:05 pm (UTC)
Happy birthday! You should get new shoes!
Aug. 6th, 2006 02:13 pm (UTC)
I should, shouldn't I? It's been two weeks since I last bought a pair.
