Birthday wishes  
I sent the last of the Evil Mag Of Doom today and gave the editor in chief the Five-Point Plan for Seizing Control, of which one point is negotiable and the rest will need to be met or I will just run away and do something less exhausting.

The nice thing was everyone else saying what a dream production it had been. Alas, it has come at the expense of my sanity and ability to speak English. My Italian is doomed.

Due to aforementioned exhaustion, I am unable to properly send felicitations on the anniversary of the birth of three of the loveliest flistees in the world: marguerite_26 , acromantular  and phoenixacid .

Instead, I share with you a great truth. When people are being complete gibbons and common decency seems lost: I plaster a polite expression on my face and sing this song quietly inside my head. It has helped, every time, and I hope it will help each of you should you ever need it.

(On the rare occasions the lunacy cannot be overcome, I find flinging one's arms in the air and doing an Animal impersonation works admirably.)

Should I see something? You have embedded something that absolutely not appears for me. YouTube?

No, no, it does now. SO PINK!

YouTube often borks its first attempt for me: I know to immediately check and try again!

And yes! I have a dreadful feeling that my love for drag queen eyelashes came about from this three minutes of seventies TV rather than my very queer upbringing.

Congratulations on surviving the epic battle!

Best wishes for a restful time ahead, followed by a much less stressful whatever-you-end-up-doing-next.

If you can sing that song in your head without at *least* bopping a long a little as well, then you're a stronger woman than most, and entirely deserving of All The Control!

OMGOMGOMGOMG I remember this. I remember this so well that my sisters and I still sing it to each other at random moments in our lives! Awesome!

Man, I must have heard about eight billion different versions of that song but I've never seen that video. It makes so much more sense now!

Hurrah! I do hope you are victorious.

And also, I cannot hear this song without also hearing (usually only in my head) people singing it at the side of an eric, substituting 'Phillipe du Lac' for 'Manamana'.

Thank you - have had a really rough day (filed w fools) and and even worse evening, this really cheered me up and brought me back to my happy place :)

Love the interchange at the end
Question is, what does Manamanah mean - no, question is who cares, this will be infinitely useful at work!

Hee, that's awesome. I've been making good use of 'goosfraba' ever since seeing Anger Management, esp when around terrible drivers. Hard to be mad when you're trying not to laugh. :)

LOL! That was very pink and very cute!

That song always reminds me of the Banana Boat sunscreen commercials. *facepalm*

I shall memorise that song for future use. *giggles*


And thank you for the wishes, darling! *luffles you*

OMG first single I ever bought! \o/

I adore the Muppet show. I may have that song in my head all day now. I'll have to remember that the next time I encounter an ass-hat. :D

Thanks, brammers. ♥

Why thank you! I had a lovely birthday, and hope you recover from exhaustion rapidly.
