It was. But then Google decided today was the day it would be celebrated. Apparently the date floats around a lot within Google and they've now decided to go with this one. Or maybe they want two slices of cake. Or prefer to be a Libra over a Virgo

birthday

It might have come off as callous to celebrate something in the midst of a huge natural disaster. Just a thought...

Reminds me of a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode where Larry David complains about being at Ben Stiller's "Birthday Party" two weeks after the actual date.

20 days does seem to be stretching it. Luckily they managed to keep it in the same month.
