7/18

Last year, here at SLV, I got away with nary a mention.
No one at work even knew when my birthday was. This year I organized a surprise party for my boss and, suddenly, everyone has noted the date.

And my boys...

The most wonderful sailor shirt with the perfect card and the most fascinating wrapping.

That big-ass soap you like.

One to make me smile.



One to make me cry.

And? A ticket to see my pals in Chicago...

Your boys look like wonderful young men.

And by "Belated" I mean "when you read this tomorrow,(as you surely will) when it is clearly AFTER your birthday, as today will be way too action-packed to spend even a moment away from all the birthday-related action"

Here's to many more happy, healthy return of the day!

I'm gonna quote my best friend who, last month when I turned 54 said to me, "Goddamn! TREES don't live that long, really!"
So there's that.
Yeah, my friends suck, but I still love them.
Can we just beg Alice to send cake?

Hey, Happy Birthday, Bird! Looks like it was a good one.
I hope you had the most marvellous day. You know, my birthday is just the day before yours. I knew you were lovely and now I know why...
