Happy 30th Birthday Samhita!


Samhita looks 30 dead in the face. And kills it.
To my dear Sami, who I met when I was just a wee Women’s Studies student at SUNY Albany. You are one radical bitch. I hope your 30th birthday brings you lots of love, young men, and booze. Oh yeah, and activism and all that.
Since you’re the first of the Feministing crew to age out of your twenties…I dedicate this Menudo song to you.

Much love, lady.

    in honor of your birthday, i just attempted to emulate the dance in the street. i was doing okay until i tried that spin-really-fast-in-the-air move that is repeated throughout the video. i’m having some trouble landing on my feet. so there you are, your very own flawed rendition of Menudo!

    You get to party with a tiny Ricky Martin on your birthday?! Jealous!

  • MoodyStarr

    Oh, no! I hope that Menudo video ins’t a clue that you’ll be kicked off feministing, as members of Menudo were kicked out of the group once they turned a certain age!
    Happy birthday!

    The thirties, I think, are tranformational. Welcome to ‘em, Samhita!
