Happy Birthday, Kat!

Okay, so as you may have heard (definitely have heard, she announced this on Twitter like she was John McDonough), it’s Kat’s big 3-0 today.

Guuuuurl, it's yo' birthday?! (Photo: Bridget Samuels/flickr)

Since I’m pretty much the birthday fairy, I figured I’d gather some peeps and wish her a happy birthday.

Let’s come meet some of our guests…

I tried to tell him it’s not really a party but he’s not convinced. I think he’s just decided to call shenanigans on us.

In case you don’t know this (because you live under a rock), Brent Seabrook is her absolute favorite and he was a no-brainer in this party.

There’s also this guy we both love from the Bruins, my very own birthday twin: David Krejci.

And, finally, there’s the minions:

Miss Hannah~

Happy birthday Kat! Remember that time I banned you from writing on your own site when we were down 0-3? To the Canucks? Yeeeeaaaah.

Thank you for being a fabulous dictator and letting some punk kid be a part of Runs On Duncan when she offered in the middle of the night.

And then there’s also Tisha:

Happy birthday from the numbers nerd! Thanks so much for letting me be a part of Runs On Duncan!

And, well. I guess I wish her a happy birthday too?

Eight years ago in an awkward corner of the internet a 14-year-old and a 21-year-old became friends. The younger one was so intimidated by the older, way cooler one that for the first four years of friendship she was reluctant to be the first to IM and was always worried that she’d end up annoying the more wordly~ one.

And then the young one moved to the older one’s city, and they decided to meet up and embark on an adventure to Lombard to visit a mutual friend. Once you take that trip through public transportation, have a crazy lady accost you on the bus, miss the last bus back and have to take a shady taxi? Well, you’re friends for life.

Oh, and then there’s a small detail–the older one got the younger one into hockey, and the rest is history.

So thanks for being a smushyface with me...

Shenanigans have ensued. Many a time. In hilarious contexts.

...for supporting my awkward and terrible life choices...

Recently these shenanigans involve the Seabrooks. Um.

...and for fighting polar bears in honor of goalie fights with me.

To eight years of friendship–and hopefully many more after this.

My life would suck without you. ♥
