Happy birthday to one of my favorite humans, @naiiannaiian
! I’m so sad that I’m going home today and won’t get to celebrate with you, but really glad we got to do some early birthday dim sum and cake last weekend! I really feel like we were destined to be friends! What were the chances that we’d both go to a Buddhist gathering for the first time on the same day. Why else did you casually drop that you were new to the city and loved music? What else compelled me to invite you to hot pot at Ding’s and Josh’s show at the Middle East the very next day? I’m convinced it was #fate
. And since then, you have been the kind of friend who will make sushi and watch #Eurovision
with us; go to summer shows on the esplanade; host brunches at your swanky apartment; let us use your home as a landing spot every #prideparade
; offer to come over with beers and Netflix when I’m sad; and actually just let me just lay in your lap while you scratch my head because life or love got me down...thank you for being an amazing friend. So much love for you, Ian! Cheers to many more years of campy singing contests, shows, nerdy drinking games, and good food!
