Happy Birthday Melissa!

Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone.. but it’s a pretty big day today. She may not
want to make a big fuss and hope everyone’s still distracted with their
relatives and after Christmas sales to notice… But today is a day
worth smiling about, as it is now only two weeks until droves of Harry
Potter migrate to New York City – and not for a premiere or a ploy to
free another house elf..

In lieu of the traditional song, I hope you’ll all join me in singing
the anthem of such events (even if you have no idea what I’m talking
about as it admittedly is a tier 1-3.5ish thing) and wish Melissa a crazy
happy day, either here in the comments or screamed into her voicemail
if you know how…

“Turnaround, every now and then I get a
little bit lonely and you’re never coming around
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit helpless and I’m lying like a child in your arms
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit angry and I know I’ve got to get out and cry
Turnaround, Every now and then I get a
little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart
Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and
then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you’ll only hold me tight
We’ll be holding on forever
And we’ll only be making it right
Cause we’ll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don’t know what to do and I’m always in the dark
We’re living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight
Forever’s gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love

But now I’m only falling apart

There’s nothing I can do

A total eclipse of the heart “

Love you lots M! Happy Birthday! See you soon!
