My name is Zoom and I live on the moon, and I came downt to earth just to sing you this tune. Hey Finy, it’s your birthday, TODAY!

Every year for as long as I can remember, those lyrics have woken me up on the morning of my birthday, and this morning was no different. At 7:30 this morning the voice of a small martian sung to me via my mother’s cell phone.

That’s right everyone, it’s Finy’s birthday. Between the birthday party last weekend, MM buying me a birthday lunch this afternoon, The Twin planning some sort of surprise for the evening (I was only give clothing tips: comfortable. And I know it’s outside.), and DTR taking me out to lunch next week, this is turning into a seriously drawn out birthday – but I’m not complaining!

But I would just like to take a second to thank my Mom today. It’s been ridiculously hot the last couple days and I can’t imagine that being 9-months pregnant in July of 1980 was all that comfortable. I LOVE YOU MOM.

“You say it’s your birthday,
Gonna have a good time….”

On January 4, 1987, my 25th birthday, I went into my job at Tower Records and my friends played The Beatles “Birthday,” as I walked in the door. I was great, and I’ll never forget it. It must be great to have your own birthday jingle you hear every year!!

I hope you are enjoying your extended birthday celebration, FiNY!!! Happy Actual Birthday!!
