Today is your birthday! I'm sorry I can't be there to celebrate with you...
You're one of the smartest and kindest and most talented people I know, and I'm honored to call myself your friend. I'm so glad that we sat next to each other on that fateful bus trip and hanging out with you - in chorus and outside, but mostly outside - is always incredible. Thank you for Doctor Who and Invader Zim and everything else that you've shown to me over the years.
I miss you so much, but I'll see you in August.
Happy birthday, again!
