First thing's first: A very happy birthday to neurosynner (who I've known for less than 24 hours). Speaking of firsts, I do believe that's the first happy birthday I've posted.

This is exactly the sort of thing that the blink tag was meant for HTML. Nothing says you care about impending increments like wildly flashing bright colors. Especially if you're a Japanese schoolkid.

Since birthdays tend to be a time of reflection and realizing just how old you are, I'll grant her this:

10 PRINT "WOO! IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY!"
12 FOR I=1 TO 500
14 NEXT I
20 PRINT "AND YOU AREN'T HAVING SURGERY!"
22 FOR I=1 TO 500
24 NEXT I
30 PRINT "THAT'S A HAPPY BIRTHDAY RIGHT THERE!"
32 FOR I=1 TO 500
34 NEXT I
40 PRINT "OH YEAH!"
42 FOR I=1 TO 1000
44 NEXT I
50 GOTO 10

Timing is intended for a TRS-80 (a 1 MHz Z-80 chip).

I'm driving to San Diego. Wooo! For just one moment though, I'd love to teleport to Salt Lake City, Utah to say it in person. =D

*poof*

*repoof*

Wonder where she was...Oh well.

If BASIC, old hardware references, and dubious claims of sudden geographic displacement don't quite do it, I recommend this site. Reminds of Korean war vets who would ship home jeeps one part at a time for no apparent reason.

After that, I recommend a (brain|cerebral) (tumor|hemmorrage). The yummy kind. Of course, you live in Utah, so that might not be simple ; )
