Fifteen plus eleven

This, of course, implies that she didn’t freak over anything in her very first year. Which may or may not be true.

Anyway, this is Taylor Swift’s 26th birthday, and she spent much of it on a plane. Leaving Australia:

And landing at LAX:

In terms of “freaking out,” I suspect rather a lot of Swifties responded badly to this incident back in the spring:

To explain:

The 25-year-old singer released a photo Saturday [14 March] showing a nasty cut on her heavily insured left leg — a wound apparently inflicted by her feline Meredith.

“Great work Meredith,” quipped Swift. “I was just trying to love you and now you owe me 40 million dollars.”

Nine months later, she’s fine, so far as I can see, and believe me, I’ve looked.

    That feline should get a Swift kick in the ass.

    Meredith says: “Mind if I pay you in hairballs?”

    My wife thinks Amy Cuddy looks like an older version of Taylor Swift. I can sort of see it:

    So in fact she’s beginning her *twenty-seventh* year. (Unless the freaking out didn’t begin until her first birthday, which would be contrary to expectations for human infants.)

    Yep. I can’t tell you much about my first year, but I have no reason to think it was utterly untraumatic.
