You say it's your birthday...

Woohoo! It's my birthday, and it's Friday, and it's cloudy. Thank you, weather gods. (Don't feel bad if you didn't know or remember. I didn't put the date on my userinfo, and I don't stand much on these Hallmark holidays anyhow.)

However, what I want to know is: what would you all get me, if money and influence were no object? Yes yes, I know, you'd fly me to New Zealand where the four hobbit actors and Orlando Bloom, in costume, would each give me a long kiss and a shoulder massage, and would each then tell the press that I'm the best kisser they ever encountered and that I'm also a fabulous writer who deserves widespread mass-market publication. BUT, getting beyond that, what else would you give me?

Be creative here. Think large. Gift me British Columbia and Alberta tied together in a nice purple ribbon, for instance. Or get on the web and find me a good-looking Gothic castle with a dungeon. Or the world's largest cruise ship, stocked with expensive chocolate in cold storage. You get the idea.

That should break up the monotony of the day a little. Thank you. Over and out.

Well, there was a pretty big cruise ship docked in Portland but apparently it left last night or this morning. I might be able to chase it down, though...

We have rain here and lightning! And all the wimps are carrying umbrellas and I am laughing at them.

Ooh...*envies your rain* But hey, clouds and less-than-75 temperatures are still an improvement over the Sacramento area.

I would give you him in all his mullet haired, tight trousered, cheesy songed glory :) Tied up in a big purple ribbon, of course.

Sweet!! He can do my eye makeup for me, and sing me to sleep, and talk about outer space, and it'll be great...
Thanks! :D

I would give you a case of champagne bottles dipped in chocolate.

Happy Birthday!

Yummy! Mmm...chocolate. Mmm...alcohol.

Thank you. :)

Happy birthday, Molly! If money were no object...I would fly you to Mars to check out how frickin' bright the Earth is as the two planets "inch" ever closer to each other over this next week. Then I'd point out the stars and let you choose a dozen to be your very own, to shine on you and smile on you all night long for the rest of your life.

Because, you know, everyone should have a star of their own, and if it can't be Orlando Bloom, LOL, then you might as well get some other heavenly body ;)

Heheh...yes, well, I guess a trip to Mars and owning the Pleiades will do. (I choose those, btw. But that's only seven, so I'll think about the other five...) Thanks!

Last time I heard anyone make comments like that it was because they were lamenting getting older and getting huffy with anyone who worked out that said person was getting older. :)

Just kidding, have a great day. Personally I don't care much for birthdays... I usually think oh bugger, more presents to get, usually a day or two before the birthday!

Well, I count Valentine's Day and Father's Day and so forth in the Hallmark holidays, so it's not just about me getting older. It's more about your other point - too much trouble to do anything about these occasions, and I never know what people want in terms of presents.

Anyway, thank you. :)

Thanks! And happy birthday (probably belated) to you as well, since I know you're another of the August b-days...which I cannot keep straight...

Gargoyles. Real ones.

They look like stone. Until an intruder enters their domain. Then the violator of your house is merely snackfood.

Oooh! That would be awesome. Very G*th, too. :D Thanks!

Happy Birthday! I'd wrangle up the entire cast of Kids In The Hall to do a live performance for you and anyone you want in the place of your choice.

*hopes they do Pit of Ultimate Darkness, and some sketch that involves Bruce making out with Mark or another Kid (in drag or not; I'm not picky)...just because I'm twisted that way...*

Orlando Bloom in a tub filled with Fauchon truffles, because GUH those are the best in the world. Also eyeliner, herbal tea, and a pair of tights (because it takes a real man to wear tights). And... Johnny Depp, because I'm sure he's always a good time.

Happy birthday!!!

That all sounds like one really great day. Wish I had those truffles here...(not to mention those guys as coworkers). :) Thank you!

A Booker prize for that award winning novel...



For sunny days...

Beautiful! Thank you! :D

And happy (early) birthday to you as well. Hope you get the sunshine (but not the broiling heat) you like over there.

I suppose I'll have to one-up the Booker person (as that is what *I* was going to say), by making you Salman Rushdie's successor as the next "Booker of the Booker". Like the pretty young dead girl sang, age ain't nuthin' but a numba.

Oh, if money were no object...I'd get you the entire Democratic portion of Congress. To do with as you will. XDDDD

b-day list
Clearly, first you need a place to hang your hat:

http://www.windermere.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=listing.listingDetail&ListingID=1989865

or, if you want to branch out from the PNW:

http://www.castles-for-sale.com/sale/index.htm

Then you need a way to get around:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2428916052&category=10540

Then you can introduce yourself as, "Lye, Lemon Lye"

Or something with a little more panache:

http://adcache.collectorcartraderonline.com/10/0/6/46591806.htm

Or when you need to haul stuff:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2429098560&category=10540

And something for email:

http://www.apple.com/powermac/

you get the idea...have a good day

Re: b-day list
Hah...cool!

What's sad is how close the prices are:
nice Seattle house: $7.4 million
a castle in France: $9 million.

Mini pickup truck...hee...cute.

I would send you to the city of your choice (London, LA, etc) to see the Premiere of Return of the Kings - with, of course, the VIP party afterwards - mmmm Hobbits. The night before the movie, as you are enjoying a meal cooked by the celebrity chef of your choice (Alton Brown, Wolfgang Puck, Jamie Oliver, etc) I would reunite all of the Monkees to sing you Happy Birthday along with your choice of favorite songs at a private concert.

Happy Birthday!

Excellent choices. Sounds like a pretty darn good weekend. ;) Thanks!
