Happy Birthday to Me!

December 17, 2008

Gadget, Lauren

*sigh*  The buffer year between me and forty is gone.  I’m 39 today!  I’ve got two whole days to lord my oldness over Lloyd before he joins me, and believe you me – I’ll milk it for everything it’s worth!  I’ll try to be nice, though, because I really like my present.

I didn’t really melt that wax on there.  I’m not THAT crazy…..yet.

I share this auspicious day with the handsome Bill Pullman and the cake meister Duff Goldman.  (Hey, Baltimorians, make Brad take a picture of himself outside Charm City Cakes for me.)  So, well-wishes are welcome!  Bonus points if it rhymes.

    Happy Birthday, Lauren! Crap, I forgot.
    It’s not that I don’t care; I’m not a robot.
    Wrestling made me busy. I didn’t know how much
    those after school hours kept me in touch.
    Before I got ready to head off to school,
    reading your announcement, I felt like such a tool.
    I have no idea why my mind is such a void.
    I haven’t just missed you, but also Mom and Lloyd.

    If you forgot to get Lauren a gift, she really likes laptop computers.


  3. Deanne Said on:

    A laptop is nice
    It beats getting dice
    Or diamonds (too much price)
    Or five grains of rice

    Better yet, the sacrifice
    Christ made -- a device
    To save us from vice.

    And now, some advice…

    Happy Birthday… You’re nice!

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    My kids just wanted to say,
    Happy Birthday to you!

    The laptop is so shiny --
    I can see myself 🙂

    Happy Birthday Lauren!

    Happy Birthday Lauren, Yay-you’re thirty nine,
    Celebrate all day long, drinking lots of fine wine!

    And remember, you’re not old,
    Until you’re covered with mold,
    So enjoy your special once-a-year day,
    Cause it’ll be years before your gray!

    But really—have a great day!!! …you young thing!
