The Food Librarian's 40th Birthday!

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Happy Birthday to the Food Librarian!
I'm 40!
Happy Birthday to Me! :)

Whoo hoo! I'm freaking 40! Now that I'm part of the 40-49 demographic bubble, I'm asking you for a favor...

Happy Birthday to the Food Librarian!
You know that person in the office or group of friends that loves birthdays? You know, the one who makes cakes and banners for cubicles? The crazy lady who yells out "Happy Birthday" with a huge smile when the birthday boy or girl walks in? Well, if you haven't figured it out yet, that's me. I love birthdays because it is your little special day.

I love when people stop by and yell out Happy Birthday. I've been known to let it slip that it's my birthday when I'm out...(well, I just flat out tell people at the counter ;). I'm not into birthdays for the parties or gifts (not that I turn them down...hee hee), but I seriously love having people say "Happy Birthday" on my birthday.

So, if you are lurker who's read this blog and never, ever comments, now is your time to come out of the woodwork and send me a birthday greeting! Yes, I'm full-on asking for birthday messages to carry me into my 40's! Also, I would love to hear where you are from too! (I was shocked to have so many international Bundt makers...I would love to get birthday greetings from far and wide! Squeal!)

I hit two bakeries this morning, and going out with friends for lunch and dinner. I'll report back on the fun!
  - mary the 40 year old Food Librarian

P.S. The yummies are a mocha cake roll (of course, no frosting!) and strawberry mochi (filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream) from J&J Bakery.
Pin It!

Happy Birthday from Cleveland, OH! Have a great day! I also need your help. Do you have an online site for me to buy Green Tea Matcha powder? I spent two days looking at grocery and health food stores and I came up empty handed. Cleveland doesn't really have a Japanese store. Thanks!

It's funny that you posted this special request, because I only saw your post title in my RSS feed and aside from the fact that I feel especially good today, I decided to come in here just to post on the occasion. So, to my delight in seeing your actual desire was for me to make myself heard, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!! Your blog, along with so many other great food blogs keep my day going and I just wanted to personally thank you for your great work here. It's my first time posting too!

Best,
Robin from Sherman Oaks

Happy birthday Mary!! I'm from the 'burbs of LA but originally came from Nantes, France, so the wishes are a little exotic I guess!
I love your blog!
And if you ask me, 40 is the new 29. So enjoy your special day!

Happy, happy birthday, Mary! From Seattle... you and I have actually met before - I'm a friend of your old roommate Agnes'. I've since moved to the great NW - and I miss JJ Bakery terribly. We used to go to the one in Arcadia whenever we visited my MIL - which was all the time.

Happy (belated!)Birthday Mary! Just thought you'd like to know that all your Tuesdays with Dorie recipes inspired me to buy her book, so thank you xx

Happy Birthday from Carefree AZ!!

I don't cook or bake, I'm not a librarian, and I'm a long way past 40 but I love your blog and all the beautiful pictures. I often send my mom one of your cake recipes and say wouldn't it be nice if 'someone' made this cake (sort of like the way you grow veggies). Sheri :)

Well dangit, I wished you well as you celebrated your last few hours of being 30-something. Then I didn't make it over here yesterday.
You're still 40 though, so I guess it should still count---Happy Birthday, Mary! Have fun in your 40's. I am! (I used to live in Kansas, but we moved to Utah this past summer.)
You rock.

Happy (belated) Birthday to the not-so-shy Mary. Yes, that's the way to go.. pursue it and not be abashed by it. Happy Birthday once again. Sorry for the late greeting.. was away for a week and then busy with settling down again when we got back. I hope you had a great day Ms. 40 year old Mary.
