But one friend went above that and emailed me a whole birthday playlist.
First of all you need to know Stacy C. She rocks. Literally, she does.
She is infamous in the Bay Area for her mixes. And if you are lucky enough to be her close friend, chances are you have one made especially for you.
So when she read my distress email this is what she sent me within record speed:
Subject: Happy Happy...
What a hoot! :)
