Mr. and Ms. October

Mr. and Ms. October

No, not Reggie Jackson or Dwayne Zackamore… it seems like so many people have birthdays this month. What’s up with that? I thought August was jam-packed with birthdays, but every year, October seems to trump it. If you do the math, and think back nine months ago, I guess lots of people “decided” to have kids in January? Was it New Year’s celebrations? The winter cold? Whatever it was, there was some kind of baby boom happening that has resulted in a ton of birthdays for October.

Not only is it true in the SXSW office: Happy Birthday Wendy, Andy, Jillian, Shawn, Luann, and anyone else here I may be forgetting. But, then, in the extended indie film family you have… Happy Birthday to Eugene, Bingham, Anne, Brian, Courtney, and whomever else I’ve overlooked.

So, wow. Happy Birthday. I’m sure all of you received my cards, flowers, and gifts.
