HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR MEEEEEE
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.

Yes, today is my birthday. I usually take it as a vacation day; but that won't work this year. Tonight, I'm planning on going to a Dave Barry book signing, and then to a local venue to hear some music.

And my girls sent me a gift certificate to Zappos.com to buy shoes. YAY.

A "tradition" has begun with the DB book signings. A certain woman in Washington DC couldn't make it to one, and sent her picture to someone who was attending. It was blown up and put on a stick and she attended in absentia. (Let's pretend I used that correctly, OK?) It has since been shipped to other signings across the country.

I received it today and I'm in the process of trying to flatten it out because it currently looks like this:



Anyone have an iron I can borrow?

A little steam from the shower, then place it under something flat and heavy (like a couple of phone books or coffee table books)

Leetie said...

Yea. THAT's attractive.

KDF said...

Eek! Aren't we worried that steam from the shower might make the Leetie Toner run?

I kinda like it -- she looks very well traveled. The more bandaids the better, because it's clear that Leetie is loved.

*sniff*

Have you tried ironing it between two towels? It's not laminated or covered in plastic, is it?

Oh, and Happy Birthday!

Leetie said...

Who's been nibbling at my head?

Jeff Meyerson said...

Yay for the Giant Leetie Head!

A little the worse for wear, granted, but which of us is not?

I can't wait to hear Dave's reaction when the original head turns up tonight.

And Happy Birthday again!

the correct Latin phrase is " in loco parentis"...

translation:"Mom and Dad are nuts."

Happy Birthday, Sly! (Did you tell Dave it was your birthday?)

Susan said...

Sly, a little LTTG, but I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
