Maureen wants the daily picture back. Says today’s her birthday. Well, OK, it just so happens we have one lying around. Let’s call it “Springtime in Detroit,” a song no one’s written. For good reason.

Hey – Cool! It really is my birthday today, and you sure made it brighter!

I got a new toilet for my birthday (seriously), so believe me when I say your headline and photo were much appreciated!

“Let’s call it “Springtime in Detroit,” a song no one’s written. For good reason.”
I’ve started working on it, but there are two problems.
One is that, so far, I haven’t come up with any lyrics other than “Grosse Pointe is happy and gay…”
The other is my complete and total lack of songwriting talent.

A toilet? I got tires once and thought that was bad, but a toilet is worse. Do you need the number of a divorce lawyer?

My birthday was the 19th, and aside from all the “anniversary of the Iraq war” news coverage marking the day (I guess it’s kind of an honor that from now on my day, which was always nondescript before, is now an Important Date in History!), Pammy granted me another year of residence in the house….

Strange, Brain and Maureen. My birthday was the 18th. What an amazing confluence of events here at NN.C. And now mine may be marked by the anniversary of Terri’s feeding tube being removed.
On my B-day I browsed imdb.com for famous folks that share the date. Ones I can remember, Queen Latifah, Vanessa Williams (42, a year older than me…grrr), George Plimpton, and Grover Cleveland.
er..Brian, I mean.

Are you grr-ing over V. Williams being older than you (and hence out of your league), or because you don’t want to share the day? Because I always thought she handled that situation fairly well, and is certainly the most talented and successful ex-Miss A., whatever that counts for.

Cunnilicious, she is. And I’m a fag.

H. B. to Danny, Brian (the Brain) and Maureen.
MY birthday is the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death (which happened on my 40th), so I suppose I face a future of tenth, twenty-fifth and fiftieth (if I’m so lucky) rembrances. Now THAT’s something to grr about!

The worst part about getting a toilet for my birthday is that I was actually a little excited about it. My Life, V2005.
Danny said on March 22, 2005 at 11:14 pm
It was a “grrr” of appreciation. She still looks awesome.
mary said on March 23, 2005 at 2:11 am
Last week I was excited about getting a heavy duty steam cleaner. It must be something to do with getting old. Either that or this winter is dragging on a little too long.

Well, while we’re laughing at our pitiful lives:
Last Friday, my birthday, in bed and asleep at 8:10 PM. I typically keep an early schedule, but that was a first for a weekend birthday celebration. OTOH, I did get up at 3:30 AM to take some friends to the airport.

speaking of weird anniversaries, my wedding day was the day of the jonestown massacre. heard the news the morning after, en route to our honeymoon. i was unbraiding my pigtails as hubby steered our pickup through the hills of northern kentucky when we heard the story on the radio. i distinctly remember thinking, “this is not a good omen.” and it wasn’t.
