Happy Birthday shu_shu_sleeps ! You look like your proposed age, not the actual, you know ;-)

And thank you so very much to everyone who wished me the best for yesterday! It was indeed a very lovely birthday, and I was, as a friend suggested, happier than an emo at a Twilight convention.

I know I am going to leave people off this list, and I apologise in advance, but thanks very much to aldehyde , alex_s9 , alisanne , anexiana , norton_gale , being_here  (polar bear!!), bryoneybrynn , calanthe_fics , cassie_black12 , dragonfly_lily , emansil_08 , emerald_dragon8 , feralcheryl , fourth_rose , frances_veritas , goddessriss , jolinar_rosha , lotus_lizzy , meredyth_13 , meri_oddities , filmatleven , ms_kilian , nolagal , nursedarry , okydoky , pingrid , pir8fancier , pushdragon , raitala , romaine24 , sesheta_66 , shu_shu_sleeps , southernbets , suonguyen , suttonwriter , dylansbuzz , thisgirl_is  and treacle_tartlet  for all your lovely messages and gifts! And to everyone who stopped by to leave a cheery comment yesterday! Thank you, too, to the generous anonymous souls who bought me some more account time -- I promise to use it wisely!

I was going to say no gifts, or spend money on Haiti if you are a compulsive giftgiver, but LJ was really helpful there, yay!

All in all that was one of the nicest birthdays in years, and full of laughs. Thank you all and everyone else on my flist for making life perpetually interesting and enjoyable!

Ack, I missed it (and just about everything else this week, woe), but a belated Happy Birthday to you! I'm glad you had a good day. ♥

Thank you, my most delightfully named friend :-) And you're not late, you're fashionably delayed!

Happy day-late /0\ birthday! I'm so glad it was a good one. :)

Thank you very much! And it's not late, we're still working on the pavlova and the birthday doesn't officially end until the cake does ;-) (If you know anyone in Sydney, for the love of god, send them to help! It's enormous!)

LOL, actually my best friend lives in Sydney! :D Unfortunately, she's suffering through a surprise visit from her mum tonight.

Also, dear God, it has to be past three am for you. That is the sign of an excellent birthday. \0/
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 30th, 2010 03:19 pm (UTC)
Daylight saving, so a bit after two, but oh god, the sugar high! ;-)

If she needs something to cheer her up, there may still be some left by Monday!

Ah, that's right--I forgot you guys are in that now. It sounds like an amazing pavlova. Now I'm craving one myself... *ponders hopping a plane* :D

Hah, I'm hoping she makes it through the weekend without needing to be bailed out of jail. *G*

I would meet you at the airport with some, and then you could supplant the mother as visitor of choice!

This, I think, is an EXCELLENT plan. \0/

Excellent! Now we just need limitless cash!

La, I meant to post yesterday and wish you a happy birthday. Woe. But I'm glad you had a good day! :D

Happy birthday, my dear.

Obviously LJ heard it was your birthday and planned their V-gift offer accordingly! Wise people *g*

Thanks for the pretty pony ♥

Oh no, fail on my part. >_> Why is this month passing by so quickly? Happy Belated Birthday.

Ahahaha! That happy, eh? *g*
Glad you enjoyed it, my dear!

Glad you had a great birthday as well - but I have to check - just WHICH one of my proposed ages do I look? :) Because I proposed three different ages! - They were 9 (hopefully I look a BIT older than that), 28 and some odd months (actually I think I look a bit older than that as well) and finally 35.....

All joking aside, I believe for a 45 year old, I can convincingly drop a good 5 to 6 years...

And I had a lot of fun on my birthday even though I did resist doing a large party etc.
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 31st, 2010 02:10 am (UTC)
28 on good days and from behind, 35 on any day! And hurrah for fun days with no party mess to clean up afterwards!

Sorry this is late, I hope you had a wonderful day and a girl can never have too much pav!
blamebramptonblamebrampton on January 31st, 2010 12:57 pm (UTC)
I did, and she can, love, she can! The sugar!!

PS are you in China for all of this year or will you be in Singapore or anywhere else? I am determined to actually see you and the girls!

I suspect there must be a pavlova saturation point, whether you push past it is another thing.

As far as we know, we're in China for another two years (quite possibly subject to change - Singapore or Annapolis). Come on up, we'd love to have you!
