portrait of the librarian at a young age

Today is my birthday. I am 38. It’s been a pretty good day so far. One of the places I am going today is the library.

    Happy birthday, and I love the photo. You look about three years old?

    Clicking through, I see the photo is in your mom’s Flickr stream which is so cool. I like this one, too.

    Happy Birthday, Jessamyn. I am a Virgo too, and I would like to be turning 38! My b-day (in 2 weeks) is my 50th.
    Loved the picture…reminded me of myself (the hair style, the sweater, the book).
    I am glad to know you!

    gelukkige verjaardag!

    That’s how they wish happy birthday in Dutch. You’ve been doing great work and are a constant source of inspiration for those of in the stacks.

    You don’t look a day over four.

    catching up on my feeds here… :) Happy (belated) Birthday! Virgo is the sign of the librarian. Librarian is the coolest job in the world.

    Happy B-lated Birthday!

    In our family, we do English first, then Portugese “Parabens Para Voce,” (roughly translated: congratulations) and if I’m around, Polish, “Sto Lat” (literally, one hundred years.) “Sto Lat” is also sung at civic events, like when the Poles elected Lech Walesa as their president.

    Happy belated birthday Jessamyn. Oddly enough, we share the day, though I turned 40. :)

    I only started reading your blog recently – thank you for it.
