It's my birthday, and I keep forgetting to post here, instead of spamming Facebook.  So I'll spam LJ, instead!  If you were of a mind to do something for me for my birthday, anything on the list below would be pretty cool. 

  1.  Sing, out loud.  In your car, in your shower, in your office. It’s fun.
  2.  Hold the door for someone, even if they’re at that awkward “not really close enough to have to” distance.
  3. Say “thank you kindly”, because it tickles me.
  4. Find something that makes you laugh.
  5. Volunteer for something that will help someone else, even if you think you don’t have anything to offer.
  6. Buy a book.
  7. Listen to some new music.  These are some of my favourites from Empires, The Decemberists, Heather Dale, Robots and Racecars, Heathers, or Of Monsters and Men)
  8. Tell me about a song I should hear.
  9. Share your favourite recipe. (I’m allergic to nuts.)
  10. Create something. I’d love to see it.
  11. Check out the amazing jewelry my friend Rain makes – http://www.etsy.com/shop/honeyandollie
  12. Read my favourite Onion article of all time – http://www.theonion.com/articles/all-yall-urged-to-go-fuck-yo-selves,3987/
  13. Donate something to Heifer International, Doctors Without Borders, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
  14. Plant something.  Trees are cool.
  15. Buy coffee for the person behind you in line.
  16. Tell someone who you think has their shit together that you admire them.  I guarantee you they could stand to hear it.
  17. That thing?  The one that’s still hurting you?  Know that it wasn’t your fault.
  18. If something was your fault, apologize to the person you hurt. Just say, “I’m sorry.” Accept that they don’t have to forgive you.
  19. Write someone you love a note, and hide it somewhere they’ll find it.
  20. Have a cupcake.  Or, whatever you-appropriate treat that you really enjoy.
  21. Buy one of my books.
  22. If you’ve read one of my books and enjoyed it, tell someone else about them, or write a review. I would appreciate it.
  23. If you’re feeling down, or alone in your problems, introduce yourself to the fabulous group of people at Band Back Together.
  24. Find a great album. Put it on your stereo, then lie down somewhere, close your eyes, and listen to all of it, with your whole self.
  25. Read The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal, because it’s AWESOME. (Caution, some parts are NSFW, but are marked.)
  26. Watch The Avengers gag reel. Like I have. About 20 times.
  27. Create a transformative fanwork.  Art, fanfic, a vid- it’ll be awesome, I’m sure.
  28. Tell an author (or other artist!) you liked their work! Everyone loves fan mail!
  29. Ask me something about my writing process, or one of my stories.
  30. Make plans to visit Big Island, Hawaii, my childhood stomping grounds. Not right away- but some day. It’s worth it.
  31. Share a joke.
  32. Show me something amazing.
  33. Tell me about your latest project.

I am so going to steal this idea for my birthday at the end of November.

I held the elevator for a "not quite close enough" person this morning.

Happy birthday!

I typically hold doors for people. And I sang loudly to this this morning while in front of the bathroom mirror this morning (dancing included. NSFW link

Which come to think of it might be a song recommendation too ;-)

Edited to fix bad html ;-)

Thank you!

Wait, I retract that. DAMN IT. I had managed to forget that song! You're EVIL!

I said "thank you kindly" to a dance partner today.

Hurrah! So why are you taking dance classes?
