Happy Birthday Liz!

Some big things happened way back in 1982:

Thriller was released

The Double Stuffed Oreo was sold for the first time

The Commodore 64 was released

The first emoticons were posted

The first CDs were sold

The Brits fought some dumb war for about 3 months

Cal Ripken played the first in his record breaking 2,632 game streak

And our dear friend Liz was born on this day!

Won't you please join me in wishing her a very happy birthday? Here's to not joining the 27 Club.

Happy Birthday kid. The Commodore 64 rocked by the way, you kids don't know what you're missing.

Enjoy the sun out there.

BTW Go Huskies!!

Happy Birthday, Liz. I hope you won't feel bad if I'm more excited about the Double Stuf Oreos...a new package of which has just arrived in our office kitchen. (Guess who's responsible for ordering the food?)

Happy birthday Liz! Many happy returns of the day.

And the Falklands War was not dumb, that featureless rock was ours, dammit!

Way back in 1982?! Sheesh... Haha...happy birthday!

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I have no idea what a Commodore 64 is, but I appreciate it.

Happy Birthday, Liz! And don't worry, you're not missing anything. The Commodore 64 was a pretender to the throne of the mighty Atari XL series.

Where the hell were emoticons posted? We didn't have computers...except the Commodore 64. God I loved that...

Happy Birthday!!

According to Wikipedia, some dude decided to start using emoticons on a message board for his class at Carnegie Mellon.

Happy Birthday Liz!

The first time I went to a non-animated movie was in 1982 when my dad took me to see Blade Runner and all I remember was wondering why Han Solo was running around without Chewbacca.

Happy birthday indeed, miss. And don't tell the Argentines that war was worthless. One of my best friend's fathers abandoned his family to fight in that war for the glory of Argentina.

Truly, he was un hombre de accion!

I used to be proficient in the Commodore 64 programming language, making me a bigger dork than first suspected.

Happy b-day Malloy, the inter-web community cherishes your existence.
