Happy Birthday Umberto Eco

And one slightly less well-known proto-medievalist, who couldn't write fiction even if the government were holding her dearly beloved in an underground bunker only to be released upon completion of a thoroughly mediocre, flash-fiction type short story
--Deep Breath -- and who is also slightly freaking out because she is now officially older than any of the following people got to be:
Alexander the Great
Nero
Richard II (of England)
Christopher Marlowe (!)
P.B. Shelley
All of the Brontës except Charlotte (Even the drunken painter brother)
Franz Schubert
W.A. Mozart
Jesus Christ(No, that's not a cuss. I'm older than that kid from Nazareth.)


Serious catching up to do ...

All I know is, you don't look a day older than Nero.

Happy birthday, Heo! And don't let the numbers get you down. We're all getting through life at our own pace, and so long as we're moving forward, we're okay.

At least, that's what I'm still trying to tell myself, two months post-birthday. :>
