Hey! I'm old, WHEE!!

I have some pretty amazing friends, I must say. My old boss from my improv comedy clubs day made a video of him lip-synching "Happy Birthday" to some crazy-ass song, I've had lovely messages sent, the ever delightful flaming_muse wrote me a STORY and it is SO SO SWEET and I LOVE IT, and I will share it with you: Forever.

(And now I'm a sobbing mess because the door just rang and she sent me TULIPS because she remembered that they are my favorite, and HOW DID I EARN SUCH GREAT FRIENDS?) I love you guys. <3

And I am not going to lift one damn finger today to do anything! Well, I'll brush my hair and stuff, but no dishes or laundry or anything else. GO ME! I'm going to play Skyrim and eat fruit, no: cheese, and I'm going to drink some wine tonight and I made an apple pie for Emily's birthday yesterday, and I'm going to have some of that, too and I'm going to have it with ice cream. (make sure you say that all like Judge Smalls' grandson. And if you get that, then you are my special love for the day.)


I had plans to write up a navel-gazing post about what all I've accomplished in 40 years, but my air conditioning died and I've had workmen all morning long. FUN! (One of them is from Jordan and we talked about his beautiful children and coming from large families, and he was DELIGHTFUL. And then he showed me the estimate for replacing the system and he stopped being my friend. Lol.)

I still want to do that, because I've been down in the dumps for several days now, and it's good for me to remember that while I've had a tough row to hoe (despite how I present myself) there are a lot of great things that have happened over the (many many) years that I've kicked around on this pebble.

But for now: I GO EAT THAI NOODLES. Like a boss.

Stoney darlin' there are a lot of things you are and may someday be.

But OLD is not one of them. Ever.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Stuff. I'll always be happy someone sent me in your directions after that email from Outside Pride.

I don't think I'll ever be old until I'm done. Too much to do! Too much to see! Too many places left unexplored! <3

Thank you so, so much. I truly appreciate your pleasant presence in my online space - always a delight when you comment. THANK YOU FOR THAT!

Happy Birthday!

Enjoy your day of rest and cheese!

I love you like Kurt loves touchable hold hair spray and Italian Vogue. Like Finn loves Halo marathons. Like Rachel loves Broadway and gold stars. Like Blaine loves bowties and handkerchief hems on linen napkins. Like Burt loves Kurt and the Buckeyes. Like Carole loves seeing her boys (all three of them) around the table on Family Game Night. Like Emma loves Lysol and hand sanitizer.

Happy birthday! I hope there is lots of cheese and pie fun, and working AC, and family hugs, and love and happiness!

Aug. 8th, 2012 05:48 pm (UTC)
I do believe there will be all of those things!! (And then your icon will happen on Saturday, YAY!)

Thank you, sweet, sweet friend! <3 <3 <3

Happy Birthday to the best and goofiest of us all. For some reason today needs to be a stony321 day EVERYWHERE! Where the wine flows freely and the laughter and shouts of joy just get BLARED OUT EVERYWHERE! And where OVER CAPLOCKING IS NEVER PUNISHED!
I hope it is the best day ever. I would totally do all your dishes for you if I was down there!
Aug. 8th, 2012 05:50 pm (UTC)
I APPROVE OF OVER-CAPSLOCKING EVERYTHING! That would be the FINEST TRIBUTE to me that I could ever dare hope for.

If I had someone that would do all of my dishes, I would bake the shit out of some stuff, just to give you something to do. :D (And I would really bake the shit out of things. Because I do not want shit in my baked goods.)

Happiest of happy birthdays, lady!!!

Thank you thank you!! <3

DON'T BE DOWN IN THE DUMPS! You're now so old you'll have difficulties getting back up again.

One of the children should be brought down to brush your hair while the other gently pours wine down your throat. Was there any other reason for having kids, besides failed birth control? (Remember to put that in their next birthday card: You truly are my miracle child, because I used about 10 types of contraceptives trying to stop you from getting here'. Awwwwww!

You are awesome, you should always remember that. Become really conceited and horrible to be around. You are loved. Like a boss. I think that involves desk and filing cabinet humping.

Aug. 8th, 2012 08:14 pm (UTC)
Oooh, good point. I need to start thinking about my hips.

And the third can massage my throat so I don't have to even bother swallowing! EXCELLENT. (Other potential cards: "You've gone from being my worst mistake in human form to being semi-tolerable. Happy birthday!)

I AM STOMPING AROUND AS I TYPE. Which is irritating, because I have to hold my laptop with one hand and this took roughly fourteen hours to type with one finger. I hope you're proud of yourself.

(AND YOU ARE WONDERFUL FOR DONATING TO HDJM!!!!! Seriously, D, you are such a great friend. I'm so happy you're mine. THAT IS WHY YOU HAVE NO OTHER FRIENDS. I told them what's what. While holding another "friend's" decapitated head. Too much? I care, okay?)

Happy birthday to my most favorite Trailer Park Whore ever!!! Would have sent you Elvis Commemorative Plates, but I left them in the house.


"Eaaat the booze and drink the cheese
Eat the booze and drink the cheese
Eat the booze and drink the cheese
Eat the booze and drink the cheeeeeeeseee!!
Because your AC is broken and you live innnnn Texxxxxaaaasssss.
And things are melty and shittttt."

I totally went to school for that.
Aug. 8th, 2012 11:51 pm (UTC)
And it was totally worth it! :D

Thank you so much!

I saw no mention of your hot tub anywhere in this post, so I will assume that the location was implied when you wrote about eating cheese and pie and drinking wine. :-)

Have a fabulous day! Spoil yourself and bask in the awesome that is you. You are worth it!
Aug. 8th, 2012 11:52 pm (UTC)
Ha! Well, it's been over 100F here, so the hot tub sounds dreadful. BUT! How about a cool pool soak instead?


Thank you so much for the b-day wishes! <3

And remember, eating cake and all that malarkey doesn't count when it's your birthday. Or on the next 364 days of the year :D

HELLO ANNE-GIRL!!! I got your email, as well. You're such a sweetheart. <3 Thank you so much for the sweet wishes, and even though it's not YOUR birthday, I wish you the same.

*hugs you all up*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
