Emily . . . Happy Birthday . . . Hope you have some great plans for today. :D

Where were you last nigt? I thought I would see you swoop in for the last second post. Now you will have to wait another 100 pages . . .

Amanda, sure hope Lucky gets along with your new yeti. I know you slept in your tiara last night and you have a death grip on your new sceptor. Keep in mind if you damage them in any way during your reign, you will have to use your own money (probably from people giving you money at your wedding hoping you will buy a nice juicer) to have it repaired. And don't let the yeti get ahold of it. He will use the sceptor as a chew toy. Yeti teeth marks on the sceptor are not acceptable.

You guys inspire and incite me... :):):)

A Thousand Thank Yous for noting my birthday. I'm so glad I have young kids, otherwise I would just grumble my way through the rest of them, trying to ignore the relentless passage of time. Cannot do that with children--they put HUGE circles around it on every calendar, force DH to arrange a big dinner, and on and on. I wish I had a deep, resonating quote about the passage of time, and how somehow poignant and beautiful that is. But nope, got nothin'. Will be seeing my dad today, and if he is still in Dalai persona, he will have something for me.

I cannot believe you crazies were online till the wee, WEE (read: not Nikki's wee) hours last night! The Fair Queen Amanda--you have a great deal on your plate now, but as your royal subjects, we're here to do your bidding. Your name means "much loved", so a perfect coronation. As I was reading through the posts, and got closer and closer to page 300, the tension and suspense were electric.

Off to do birthday things....

"I could while away the hours,

And smell the pretty flowers....

Happy Birthday Emily!!!!!

Good Morning All! Boy the wind was strong here last night.

I believe Lucky will be ok with the Yeti as long as the Yeti pays attention to him. Lucky is a people cat, I actually think he needs people interaction or he gets loony.

You can be one of my princesses and back-up queen in case I cannot serve. I will need someone to watch the kingdom the next two weekends. I must get married the next and the one after I will be honeymooning.

I musta missed replying to this while off looking for those old pointy bell-enhanced slippers!

Take special care of your pointy belled slippers . . . Moves can be rough on your most precious items. Maybe they shouldn't be packed away. Maybe they should go in the car with your other special items like the photo of all of us together except for BEV who left me out of that last party, and then tried to cover it up by implying I didn't remember being there . . . not like I'm trying to get even or anything. <_< . . . :lol::lol:

This one's killin' me!! :lol:

Oooooooooo! LOUD and Powerful has some sort of instinctual appeal for the male human, and probably male Yetis too.

Ever see one blow up in testing? :lol:

Reminds me of my couple yrs at UL, where we'd have to see what it took to make a product become unsafe.

I had crowds gather while making portable bathtub-type jacuzzi units burst into flame. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! (Not 'wee')

Sure they're rated for 120V, but the fun really starts at over 250V, when you make the motor seize. (Is it cease? Gah it's early!)

To wee in the jacuzzi is definitely a no-no. Especially when you have crowds gathered.

One leads to the other, doesn't it?

Never saw a jet engine blow up in person, but I didn't have too much to do with testing. Only had an occassional test to sit in on and when everything goes as planned, it's usually quite boring. I did get to crawl up the tail pipe of a B1 Bomber though, I can still hear my boss saying "Janet, you're wearing jeans, crawl up there and see if you can see any damage." And me thinking, nobody's in the cockpit are they . . . who has the keys to this thing? :ph34r:

Oh...I knew I forgot someone :( :( :( (I was trying to back pedal) so I must humbly ask your forgiveness. I could blame it on Lyme, or being blonde (ah...but I'm not blonde) so I bow before you as former Queen Bev and ask you to forgive me. In fact, you should be the Royal Court Party Planner so it NEVER happens again. I knew I should have just forgot Richard 'cuz he's always painting something :P

As the former Queen, and now princess (I think, right?) LET'S PLAN A BIG 'OL PARTY!

After Queen Amanda comes back from honeymoon of course- wait, don't we have to go on her honeymoon as her ladies in waiting????????????

I cannot believe you crazies were online till the wee, WEE (read: not Nikki's wee) hours last night!

And THIS little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home, leaving a moist trail too easily followed by even the most inept of predators.

BACON!!!

Oh what a quandry - so reluctant to correct an esteemed member on her birthday! :ph34r:

So I'm stuck asking the group to remind me toMORRow to say I believe it's "conferrin' w/ the flowers".

I thank you in advance for your cooperation. :P:lol:

RIGHT YOU ARE, TOM! Gawd, how could I have made this error?? Actually, it's worse than that: I made TWO errors....Bert Lahr did NOT sing those lines. Ray Bolger did. It's the age thing! Not as sharp, memories blurring...stupid birthdays!

I'm afraid there's no denyin',

I'm just a dandelion,

A fate I don't deserve,(or desoive),

I'd be brave as a blizzard,

(Tin Man) I'd be gentle as a lizard,

(Scarecrow) I'd be smart as a gizzard,

(Dorothy) If the wizard...is a wizard...who will serve.

Beautiful stuff! Nobody writes 'em like that anymore...This is my happy place. :):)

And a BEAUTIFUL poem, Bev! That is a GREAT birthday present.
