I think anyone who has read the comments in our blog will be familiar with Leah, one of our longtime blog readers.  Even though most of us haven't met her personally (except for External Blog Boy, Kim Seale), we consider her a friend (and, a fellow Nut About Southwest Airlines).  Well, today (July 26)  is Leah's birthday, so consider this your blog birthday card, Leah! Let's make this an electronic birthday card for her, so add your own wishes.

Leah - Happy Birthday from one Leo to another!! I'm sorry I missed you when you came thru St. Louis, but your information was right - I'm off enjoying my summer vacation - part of which included celebrating MY birthday on the 25th! I hope your travels bring you back thru STL, and that we have the chance to meet then. In the meantime - Cupcakes with sprinkles for everyone!! Have a great, wonderful, enjoyable, memorable birthday!!

Happy Birthday! Don't get cake on your keyboard. Candy corn is OK, though, as it is easier to clean up.

Oh, you JUST missed being a Crab... too bad, we were hoping you'd join us.. Just disembarked from a flight from a work trip to Austin and was feeling so much Texas love that I had almost forgotten it wasn't even a Southwest flight! I wish it had been though. Happy Birthday, Leah. --D.Ronen http://www.procrastination.net

Hey to my Okie buddy! Happy Birthday to someone who is possibly an even more fanatical fan of Southwest than me! I hope that your trip to Orlando went well and I'm anxious to hear all about the Positively Outrageous Service you got on that airline you flew on. What was the name of the carrier again? :) Best wishes always to my good friend and fellow SWA Employee-wannabe! Kim Burnt Orange Rival to your state but still your pal 🙂

Happy Birthday Leah and fellow LEO! There is nothing better. haha In honor of your B-Day If you'd like, and Blog Boy will give my email to you via PM I would be glad to talk to you about Interviewing at SWA. I used to be an Inflight Recruiter a few years ago and could speak with you about it. I can't give you any answers about your past interviews, or what exactly all the questions are, but I would be glad to help you out where I could, and at least give you "my opinion" on what you could work on.

Leah, Happy Birthday! I do read the SWA Blog and never write in, but I noticed you are a longtime blogger and a very popular one I might add. I myself LUV SWA, I think it's a great airline and a great place to work. Hope your trip to MCO was a good one. Good luck with any interviews you may have with SWA. Laura

Aww, thanks everyone! I appreciate the messages! I had a great birthday! I took pictures of my cake, which said SWA LUV! It sure tasted good. I still have some left. *Passes out cake.* Ah, I'd love to be 21 again, but I don't feel any older! Hey, that's neat you & I have our birthdays a day apart, Mary! My youngest niece has the same birthday as you! I hope you had a good vacation wherever you went! Today at work, I saw one of the residents had some candy corn in her room! I had to smile at that! :) Kim, I'm sure glad I didn't fly AAnother AAirline to MCO! I got to help serve snacks, get my pictures taken with the FAs & one of the pilots, & one FA gave me another inflatable Spirit plane! I wish it were last Thursday, because I had my trip to look forward to! I had a wonderful time. Yes, Eric, I'd like to have your email please. We can chat more about interviewing with SWA. That would be great! I didn't get a card from Francisco. I bet he doesn't have my address! That's a good one. Southwest LUV to all, from Leah the Leo 🙂

Funny comment of the day........ So I'm on the phone with a CCR doing a name correction when she says out of nowhere (she's a reader of the blog) and out of nowhere she says: "can't we just GIVE Leah a job with us already?!?!?! Should we start the petition? And Kim too!" Jedi Blog Master

P.S. I do already know how to pass out snacks! I just need trained for everything else! 🙂 Now, as for CSA, I need trained on everything, except for taking the tag off (with my destination, etc., on it) before checking in, putting my bag on the scale to weigh, & putting in on the conveyor belt; well, I've never done the last thing. I'll start the petition to hire Kim & me now: 1. Paco Cerda, aka Jedi Blog Master 2. Leah Johns 3. Kim Seale 4. Name unknown-the lady who made that comment :) 5. SWA LUV! 🙂
