all the way round, or another slice of birthday cake

Yes, it really is my birthday.

And, besides peace, love, understanding and a speedy and equitable end to the current financial crisis, you know what I'll be wishing for as I blow out my many, many candles.

Happy birthday! I assume it's the calendar type, not the aboriginal, you've reached a new threshold of understanding in your life type of birthday.
I hope you have an excellent day--and weekend!

Happy Friggin' Birthday!! :)

Magpie said...

Someone I knew was pregnant. At the u/s, they said "you're having a boy". At the next u/s, they said "oops, it's a girl". She then sent out an email saying "my boy has played with his penis so much that it's fallen off".

So, you're wishing for a girl? Pink candles and all???

Happy birthday, and many many happy returns of the day.

Eva said...

Happy birthday!!! And, quelle coincidence, I finally got the chocolate today! (The mailroom is way backed up.) I told my roommates they were from a "friend" as they don't know I have a blog, and they have both professed undying love to you, as have I.

P.S. The Chai chocolate is gone, and we're halfway through the mint chocolate. I don't think the rest will last through the day. Wheeee, freshman 15! Totally worth it!
