Hey Christen, Just wishing you a very happy b-day from far away in the South. I hope you have a really good time. I think this idea of Josh´s is pretty cool, though I´d be concerned about people hijacking my e-mail. Hehe.

Happy Birthday Christen! Don't go too crazy celebrating! Well, on second thought, have a go at it and see what happens :) Enjoy your special day and drink lots of coffee the next morning - it'll cure what ails you.

Take good care,

Thanks!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTEN!!!!

I hope it’s your best one yet.  You were so helpful and such a great friend during my transition of moving to the Big Apple (I still of you every time I go to the Hungarian Pastry Café and how you briefed me on all the hot Columbia hang outs).  I also miss that sarcastic wit of yours.  Sigh.  Everyone else is just so damn nice all the time.  I definitely need you to keep me in form and on my toes.

Have a fantastic day (glorious even) and call me anytime you need an eating buddy on the upper west side.

Love you!!!

Carolyn

Happy birthday, Christen and cheers from Hong Kong! Sorry that I won't be around to celebrate with you this year, but definitely book a day for me in August and we'll go on a birthday date. And hey, as much fun as Josh is, I won't take him as a replacement this time! You and me, baby, you and me ;p  At any rate, will be thinking of you as I wander the streets in the sweltering heat here and will try to live up to your shining example of the young urban vagabond/yuppie nomad. Have a fabulous day and I will talk to you soon. (Sorry for taking off somewhat abruptly last time!!)

Take care,

Christine

Happy birthday or "Tillykke med fødselsdagen" as we say here in Denmark.

May your day be filled with love from friends and family and may all your birthday wishes come true. I know it is not much, but my present to you is my eternal friendship and a million thoughts on the happy times we have spent together and the wish of seeing you again soon.

Your danish friend

Christen,

Happy Birthday! Hope your world travels are treating you well and that you are having a blast in NYC. I’m now living in DC again so keep me in mind if you end up down here anytime soon.

Always,

Hey Cammuragirl! Happy Birthday! We've known each other for many years and through several Asian countries - yet, you never cease to amaze me. You are a wonderful friend, passionate photographer and the epitome of a Yuppie Nomad! :o)

All the best,

Hey Christen, happy birthday dude. It's cool that we "kinda" keep in touch still. I guess you are one of the lucky ones that I get to take my time out to still call once in a blue moon. Haha. Anyways, thanx for everything you have done for me. I appreciate your friendship. I hope that everything in your life is going the way you planned. But if not, just do what I do.... Just root for the Lakers. You know you love them. Take cares Christen and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
