Happy bunny.

Okay, I'm not good at sentiment, but I have to say how moved and touched I am by the tremendous effort everyone made to show me a good time for my 40th birthday Saturday night. (The birthday is actually tomorrow, but let's face it, landmark birthdays should never fall on a Tuesday, but always on a Saturday, right kids? There ought to be a law.)

So, this is my meager thank you to everyone. It doesn't say nearly enough, but hey, I'm still hungover, so that says a lot about what a great time it was, dunnit?

To my loving husband, siblings, friends...everyone who came, and to those who couldn't make it, but were there in spirit, you're all amazing people and I'm lucky to have all of you in my life.

...sniff...

Damned if I'm not still choked up.

Happy Birthday, Joelle! I always think of you this time of year as your birthday rolls around...raise a Guiness for me, would you?

Yes, I saw that FMC - and thanks again for your lovely b-day wishes. How's the hangover? I read your post and haven't had a chance to formulate anything witty to say...

Oddly, yes, and then I woke up to find a Throbbing Gristle CD in my house.

Wasn't Joelle Superman's mother?

40 is the new 30, they say, which means that you are now the same as agae as me, but still older because my birthday is today (the 20th).

Happy birthday

Happy Birthday, Chris. Today is my husband's birthday as well. March is a good month, non?

And no, I do not share my name with any comic book characters. Which is really too bad, I'm thinking.

But the closest to it is Jo-Rel (sp?) who was Marlon Brando.

Thank you for the concern luv, but I am recovered. Nap, shower, bacon and eggs and I was almost as right as rain. I'm just too old for that kind of impromtu drunkenness.

Happy Birthday A-Girl! I assume 40 is a great age to be since I'll be there in 4.
