The Splendiferous Soliliquation of a Selebratory Sirthday


Today’s Music: The Beach Boys – Good Vibrations

There are five letters in the name Sandy. Each of those letters encompasses a world of wonder about a fantastic blogger named (coincidentally) sandylikeabeach.

To celebrate sandylikeabeach’s birthday, I was going to write in her style of the Stream of Cosciousness Sentence.
But it would be a sad effort compared to the mistress of it.
So instead, I’m going to pick a letter of her name: S. because that’s where it all Starts.
Sandylikeabeach was one of the first bloggers I met when I started. And I can’t tell you how lucky I was. Right from the beginning, I could see she could be both Silly and Serious (sort of), Sublime and Supportive.

But there’s so much more to it than that. Sandy’s posts range far and wide (and wide and far), telling about her Steps on the dance floor, or her creative mischievous streak where she encourages you to Steal. (But in a playful way, so no one does jail time.)


If she isn’t where you expect, she might be out on the Sea, paddling away, or maybe passing a week just Sitting in someone’s house.

As for me, I’d just like to wish her a happy birthday, and think she’s relaxing with a nice drink, Sleeping on a beach that is sandyasablogger.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANDY!!!

P.S. – The adverbial/adjectival story continues with the rest of her name!!! (You didn’t think it could all be contained in one post, did you?!?)

The Party Goes On at Kayjai’s!!!

And catch the whole thing!!!

Happy Birthday, ODNT!


Today’s Music: Rick Springrfield – Don’t Talk To Strangers
Note on Today’s Music: Because she really loves this stuff.
Another note: According to Mags did a great post(read as: saner and more coherent than mine) for the birthday girl. You should all check it out here.

I smell cake. Or is it cheese? CHEESECAKE!!!


You started your blog with a simple request,
About something you wanted to get off…on your chest.
You took us to meet the doctors who knew,
told us about a surgeon who made one out of two.
But then, something else came up.

With your usual wit and all of your humor
you told us that you had a tumor.
While you searched for the perfect breast answer,
It turned out that it wasn’t cancer.
And that was a great relief.

Since then, you showed us the meaning of chagrin.
Shared a letter to your bff,
Mr. Alec Baldwin.
Introduced us to Milo the cat,
Wrote some of this and some of that.
And the most embarrassing Disney story ever.

It’s almost a year since you set up online –
What a year, and how!
Told tales of naked mole rats
And you’ve got your own cow!
Which really only leaves me
One more thing to say:
To Old Dog New Tits,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

And many more wonderful years to follow.

While this ode in your honor
doesn’t come with cheese or a hamster,
In closing, there’s a question
for which we’d all like an answer…

saline or silicone?

Happiest of birthdays, Michele, and keep on rockin! I’ll keep following your story wherever you decide to take us!

Lets Go For A Ride!


Today’s Music: Phoebe Snow – Shoorah! Shoorah!
Music Note: Found this song through Joan Osborne’s album Bring It On Home.

Some people see Wheelchair. She see Opportunity!

There are bloggers who show up and read pages, then drift silently back into the ethernet.
There are bloggers who show up, leave a comment and disappear, never to be seen again.
Some bloggers post stuff they made up, or copied from somewhere else, or just sort of ramble.
Some of them tell you surface stories, or hint at things but don;t really go below the surface or let you in.

Today is the birthday of someone who does none of those things.
In the short time I’ve known her, she has embedded herself in the lives lucky enough to be her online friends. She responds to every comment, starts conversations, and keeps them going with her wit, her charm, and her genuine interest.
Put up a post that you had a bad night, and she’ll give you 50 comments to cheer you up, drawing you out of your funk.
Post that you did something silly, and she’ll follow you across the blogosphere, hounding you until you can’t help but laugh at yourself.
And you’ll thank her for it

I don’t remember how I stumbled across her blog, but I’m glad I did. There are very few people that put themselves out there like that. But she does, and brings you along for the ride.
Want to play games with other bloggers? Yeah, she’ll do that (check the comments!)
Want to play in a flash web mob? Yup, she’s got it covered.
Deeper thoughts? Go evil, and be glad you did? Stunningly played
April Fools joke? Yep.

But it’s not just fun and games.
I’ve seen her hunt and track people down when they were having problems, just to cheer them up. And follow up, just to lend an ear.
She also doesn’t shy away from describing when she has a problem, and she is ridiculously brave about explaining them to us and answering questions about them.

I don’t know how I got on her good side, but I’m glad I did.
And I would never want to be on her bad side.
She takes her Evil seriously.
And stalks like nobodies business!

It was a good day when I met her, and they’ve been good days ever since.
So join me if you would, in a heartfelt sincere wish:
Font size: HAPPY BIRTHDAY HOBBLER!!!
And I hope every day is as bright and shiny as you are, and as you make mine.

Coolest villainess in the sphere!


(Oh, and if all that wasn’t enough, she’s even got a new blog now, Not Hobbling Now!)

A Snaapy Post


Today’s Music: VeggieTales: The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything Silly Song (NOTE: This is probably the Only. Time. Ever. I will post one of these songs. It was ridiculously painful)

As the world spun earlier today, and time crept forward across the planet, something happened. Something Magical.
The date changed.
And it became 30 April. The world became engulfed in the unstoppable march of this date, and the world reveled in it.
Why?
What’s so important about 30 April?

It’s Ginger Snaap‘s birthday!!!!
Get out your sunglasses, because shininess reigns for a solid 24 hours!

He's celebrating.

Actually, shininess always reigns where Ginger is. Whether trash talking with the soccer moms, or pointing out the errors of his ways to Mountain Man, Ginger is just a bundle of joy.

Ginger unwrapped her present early.

Who can resist her wit? Her kindness towards crazy people? (She’s their leader!) And her weekday twitter dance parties?
Truly the stuff of legend, much like the woman herself!
So join in the celebration!
Let yourself go!
And if people are blinded at your joy today, well, that’s just Ginger Snaap’s shininess reflecting off us all!

Yeah, too bright even for him.

Or maybe they’re blinded by the awesome dance moves.

Doin' the happy birthday dance!

Happy Birthday Ginger Snaap!
