Isn't the whole point of the Internet for peering into other people's lives and becoming exceedingly jealous of the things they have that you don't? Thanks to Beyonce's blog, we can all do this on a daily basis as often as we'd like! 

For her 31st birthday (today, September 4!), her friends and family took over beyonce.com and posted a virtual birthday card full of personalized messages from her loved ones. And this might be a shot in the dark, but I'm guessing a lot of the people who signed her e-card aren't going to be signing yours any time soon: i.e. her sister, Solange, Jay-Z's mother (and her mother-in-law), "Mama Carter," Destiny's Child Michelle Williams, and Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, to name a few.

Some things we learned from Beyonce's birthday card:

- Beyonce's friends regularly refer to her as "King"
- Solange will apparently always be Beyonce's "tnu tnu"
- Jay-Z's mom knows the acronym "LOL," uses it

Check out the Martin family's birthday wish to Beyonce below, and see the whole e-card here.
