Happy Birthday Lena Dunham: Now Be Our Best Friend

Let's braid each other's hair!

Happy Birthday, Lena Dunham! You are now 28 years old and therefore still eligible for all of those “30 Under 30″ lists. Congrats! We are sure you will top them all!

Incidentally, Lena-Cakes, you are also still eligible to be our best friend (all of MTV News collectively) — if you would have us. (Did you get all the handmade cards and dolls that we sent? Oh, well, we’re sure they’re just lost in the mail.)

We even made you the below collage of the 28 Instagrams (because you’re 28!) that make us yearn for you to be our compadre.

We’ll be waiting over here with frozen yogurt and matching charm bracelets until you finish perusing. Can’t wait to plan a road-trip to Atlantic City in which zany high jinks ensue!

KISSES.
