An Online Birthday Party!

15 06 2009

15-6-2009 18-05-22 BD poes kaart kleinToday is my birthday. And although I stayed home with a headache and other small complaints, and although I don’t really celebrate it any longer (except for the real round figures, like 50-60), the day started out pretty bright just around midnight with all kinds of virtual birthday wishes.

It started with an e-card (left) from Ramona Bates, plastic surgeon and quilter from the USA (hence her blog Suture for a Living), followed by many other birthday wishes.

Robin of Survive the Journey was so kind to send a song via blip.fm and then to organize a “twitter-party” by using the twitter-tool QuoteURL I had just reviewed on my blog (see here).

The start of the Twitter party  is shown below. Here is the link: http://www.quoteurl.com/r1e27

Later I received more birthday and get-well wishes from Twitter, Hyves, Facebook, and Fabulously 40 (and beyond). I even received a e-card with “happy birthday” in Chinese!happy-birthday in chinese

Although my friends are virtual (?) and the cards and wishes are virtual, it feels like I’m having a real birthday party with real friends. The only thing that was missing was real coffee, cake or wine. ;)
