I have realized, a week late, that I entirely forgot to mark my Cassius' birthday/deathday.* This feels dreadfully careless and inconsiderate of me. Howbeit, I don't think I really have anything better to do than wish Caius Cassius Longinus a belated 2052nd deathday, and 2090-something-eth birthday, which I hereby do. Happy ones, I suppose, if he wants them so, but I won't insist upon it.

*Granted, there are various dates for the first battle of Philippi, but the 3rd is generally fairly popular, and I haven't gotten around to making even a silly paltry attempt at evaluating the various sources.

I can't help but think Cassius would love having his birthday/deathday forgotten and then remembered a week later. My version of Cassius, at least, enjoys working himself up over a slight as much as he does receiving apologies and recognition. This gets him two for the price of one! ;)

Ha! I love that explanation! Good, then. Hopefully I've managed to give him a doubly worthwhile birthday/deathday. ;)

[takes a leaf from Cassius' book and shows up with a quantity of undiluted wine]. There. Equally suitable for happiness or misery. ;)

Aww. Thank you. :)
