She ain't riff-raff. She's rafaela. And she's celebrating.

rafaela. Her name is legend Her Doctor Who fandom is legend Her legend is legend SHE DESERVES BETTER THAN THIS BIRTHDAY MESSAGE, CHRIS. FIGURE IT OUT. Enough strike-throughs.

rafaela and I, we're talk-friends. We call a lot. Quite a bit of time on the phone each week. We process stuff together. We make each other laugh. We help each other keep perspective. She's working HARD to make her life and her partner slipjig's life work better. She wants to live better, love better, eat better, and care better. And she's already one hell of a person who cares -- a care-r? Why not call her that?

She's a worthy, passionate, hilarious person, and it's been a privilege to get to know her better over the past two-plus years we've known each other.

Happy birthday, Anna.
