Armin's a green toad? I KNEW IT!

I've always heard it sung this way, but never found out why a green toad! A history lesson?

Armin, just remember two words ...

fine... wine.

The older you get the more you need to think you are exactly that - fine wine.

Happy Day brotha!

I guess Alan's a green toad, too! Happy Day to you as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

> A history lesson?

I have no idea where the Sapo Verde thing came from. It just syncs really well with the melody.

(And happy day to you too alan)

It's hard to know which free online translation service to believe when one does not speak Spanish & one's Spanish-speaking sister is still in bed in America.

Alan Caplan’s comment is:

Want to know something else coincidental? I used to work at marchFIRST, same as Armin.

Same former employer.

Same Birthday.

Same first letter of our name.

Perhaps we are the same person, and we don't know it.

Paul’s comment is:

I for one have never seen you both in the same room at the same time, so it does seem distinctly possible.

Happy Birthday, boys!

Happy B-Day, Armin (and Alan)!

Armin, you're an inspiration and a challenge to me, every day. Your legacy in birthing SU has already paid great dividends in my designer's heart. On your best days, you remind me of everything I love about design, and on other days, you challenge me to think deeply about what I do and think. All GREAT stuff!

So, have a good birthday, kick back a little bit, and keep touching lives like you are! :)

pedro’s comment is:

That’s not fair!!!!

I had a busy day and was just able to open speakup and find already 27 hoorahs for Armin and mine is not there.

I congratulated him very early by phone (maybe 2nd after Bryony) - guess that doesnt count!!!

Anyway its cabalistic that there were 27 comments when I looked in (one for each year!!!)

Congrats Armin!!!!

Greg’s comment is:

In honor of Armin's birthday, I will now juggle a paper coffee cup (coffeeless), an exacto knife (bladeless), and a Sheepie (sheepless), all while humming Happy Birthday in A flat.

Drumroll please....


Did anyone see it? Well, that's ok, I can't juggle (nor do I have perfect pitch). HFB Armin!

Also today: Melrose actress Josie Bissett (34) and Marsha, Marsha... Maureen McCormick (48)! To top it all off the first edition of Dick Clark's "American Bandstand'' aired on national TV. (1957, ABC) You rock.

What do they say about the company you keep? Happy Birthday.

Man, thank you all for the great wishes! When I become rich and famous I'll throw a huge ass party and invite everybody here… except Weinberger and ps ; )

Happy birthday Armin. My 30th's tomorrow. Until this year I've only known of one person in my entire life before now that had a similar birthday. In the last week I've discovered four other people! Strange!
