Birthday Presents! - Belated Update!

  1. 70% Cacao Chocolate bars.
  2. A fake plant I can't kill.

Life is good! My birthday was today, but this Sunday we'll celebrate it by attending the Met Opera Simulcast in our local theatre, (many, many thanks to Edward Christie at the Vodka Pundit for the tip!) and then off to the county fair for some rodeo and funnel cakes!

I am a woman of complicated tastes.

I'm also at the age where it's best to transpose the numbers on my birthday cake!

Oy! Of course Birthday Present Payback is hell:

Heh. Gotta get to work, slackers. Thanks for all the kind words!

Happy Birthday, Joan!

Joan of Argghh! said...

Thanks, Julie!

Everybody stay tuned. I think Erica is up to some sort of devilment. Oy!

Erica said...

It may take some time, since I am still at my Gott-damned blood sucking job, but, you shall have it before midnight tonight.

A freilichen g'buertstag to you, dahlink. It's a bigg'un dis year, too, I hear.

We should all look so good when we reach that number.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!

Hope you have a great time celebrating Sunday. :D

joated said...

Transpose away, joan, as long as it's not something like 36, or 37, or 38, or 39. Those don't work too well.

And whatever the number may be, I hope it was a good day all around. May you have many, many more.

GUYK said...

Happy Birthday! Complimented tastes? Ain't nothing complicated about the rodeo unless you be the one trying to ride the bull. But now that opera? Hmmm

Erica said...

Actually, Guy, I think if the bull nail the rodeo dude in his "cowbell parts," Joanie could enjoy the opera AT the rodeo.


Joan of Argghh! said...


We'll just go to the movies and watch a Horse Opera!


Elisson said...

There's nothing can be said or done
That beats another Trip 'round the Sun.
What's good about it? It really rocks
To be warm and vertical, and not in a box.
Enjoy your Birthday! May there be many more.
What's that on your shoulder? I think it's the floor!

Suzette said...

Happy birthday, a bit late but a lot sincere.

Oh God - that was so lame and its the best I can do!

That 1 Guy said...

Happy Belated B-day, Joan! Enjoy yourself this evening!

Joan of Argghh! said...

OMG!! Zonker came out of hiding to wish me birfdaisy! Hiya, Zonk!

And I was gonna kid Michelle about being alive, but I would've been right. Hi Michelle!

And Denny never comments here, so I feel really special!!

Thanks to mary and T1G and Joated and the Irrelephant and the inimitable Ms. Sissy.

Too bad I can't have a birthday more often. I'll think of some other reason to celebrate, I'm sure.

*muah!* to all.
