Friday, July 18

all I need is Steve McQueen

OK, so it's Friday and I'm in San Fran and it's my birthday and my head hurts (for good reason) and I'm so deliriously happy and sad at the same time that my head just might explode. Fer realzs. Like messy alien-in-the-brain-who-needs-to-birth-it's-offspring head explosion. Know what I mean?

Anyhow, it's my arfing birthday and every time I look out the window I keep expecting a young Michael Douglas or maybe a super sexy Steve McQueen to come burning down the street in a super cool car at top speed with Gigi in the passenger seat yelling "FASTER". Perhaps, I should lay off the LSD. Speaking of LSD, I think I've got to find Haight-Ashbury because isn't that like a faux hippie kind of mecca? Holy run on sentence.

But like I said: it's my birthday so deal with it.

Oh crap, I'm babbling and if you think I suck because I'm screaming it's my birthday every two minutes, well I say this: If I don't tell people, they won't know to buy me drinks. Super simple, no?

OK - I'll shut it now but in case you are wondering, I once again molested Jenny The Bloggess at The People's Party last night (just like last year) and I'm really looking forward to her panel this afternoon because she was practising her speech in the bathroom this morning and she used the C word so many times, I felt the presence of my mother in the room and she was whittling a switch and lecturing us both on how proper ladies don't say c*nt.

Hey mom - I never claimed to be a proper lady.

And... did I mention it's my birthday?

look - we has party

Happy Birthday!

Wish I were there. Or in Niagara. Somewhere with other bloggers.

Totally into you and your run on sentence. We're I there, I'd totally buy you a drink, but not before I worked up the ever lovin' nerve and took a big old bunch of deep breaths to come up to someone super cool and be all "Hey! Can we be real life friends? I'll ply you with alcohol. Or whatever. You know. So...yeah..."

Hope your birthday is fantastic, and you get the extra birthday love upon your return home!

Hey, when is your birthday? Just curious, because I don't know.

Have a few drinks for me. Heck, I might even have a glass of wine tonight after the baby is out for her longer sleep. I'll have it in your honor. That's all I got.

Happy Birthday, MB. Hope you're not finding SF too cold (based on other reports, it's more summer here than there).

Well Mother...I hope you are having a great time in San Fran on your birthday.
Nottoo much alcohol... alcohol and bumpin is a dangerous mix.
Keep us posted and have fun!!!!!!

Chag said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you're having a great time!

Mimi said...

I have a very similar picture of you two .... you certainly look like you're up to no good, which in fact, as I recall, was the case. Woot!

And you were the most good looking birthday girl of the ball last night!

I think I've cracked your secret code, and have deduced that it is in fact your birthday. Have a drink on me - I'll e-mail you my debit card.

I think it's not your birthday any longer, but Happy Day!

Hey - I was just wondering - is it your birthday?? I wish we could have celebrated in Niagara. Next time I see you, I will be sure to buy you a drink. Is it wrong to drink on an afternoon playdate?

HAPPY BDAY!

My first thought when I saw this was "Hey, I got a drink out of Jenny's bra that night!" Except that sounds fairly weird. But I meant, you know, she was storing all those drink tickets in there. Of course that's what I meant. (no I'm not still drunk, but the exhaustion feels comparable) ;)

I loved hanging with you once again.

Do you mean it was your birthday right around BlogHer last year and I didn't even KNOW to buy you drinks?! Way to play coy, you. But happy birthday this time, anyhow, and a tray of virtual bevvies for toi.

Ali said...

i'm sorry...the very best part about having your birthday at blogher was getting to watch you go up to the stage and have the entire 1,000+ people there sing. to. you.
awesome.
ahahaha.

Redneck Mommy said...

To think...I gave you the best birthday gift of all...

I grabbed your boobs.

I know, I know. You're totally wondering how you will ever top that birthday moment.
