year yasmin marie,
happy new year ! ! !
you should know everyday-- but more today than any other day-- just how wonderful you are.
you got mad sparkle, kid.
you're one of my heroes and i know that when it's all said and done, you will go down as one of the greats in history. you're already well on your way so never doubt for a second that you will have everything you want-- there's NO WAY that someone as talented, smart, and charismatic as you won't. it's impossible! so... be patient... only good things in your future-- i know.
you WILL be a famous rapper. tatertatertatertots.
and never forget to celebrate the way in which you are able to seize the day and say 'yes' to the world better than just about anyone. somehow yasmin reshamwala is able to seek out the finer things in life while also raucously adventuring the heck out of every moment. it's glorious. thank you for all the times i've been lucky enough to join in. i am so darn lucky to count you as one of my best friends.
and thank you for always giving all the bad jokes of the world a chance to be funny. thank you for your wonder and love of beauty. thanks for seeing potential friendship in so many weirdos...
you smile all the time and you dance all the time and we all love you so much for it.
you are a lady and a doof, a kid and a damn-fine grown up, and i love you for always wearing shorts and tights and for liking shirts with ladies on bikes more that any other kind of shirt.
yasmin, if i was into girls who get more beautiful the older they get, i'd marry you in second.
so! for you, the following things:
it's a m f'ing lejubirthday.
i love you, babe.

ps- jason took this picture of you and me the other day. he says happy birthday. he says he's darn proud to call you his friend-- he'd move you any day.
