Tardiness, it's my gift ...  
HOW AM I SO FAR BEHIND?? Right. I think I started cocking up on birthdays around about February, so let's just deal with the most immediate lapses of usefulness on my part.

 to sarcasticpixie ! Suzie darling, you are political fiend and cat lover after my own heart. Have a wonderful day, dear, and do run for office before you turn 40. Because Emmanuel is fun, but your campaign Twitter stream would be GOLD.

BRY! bryoneybrynn , who I truly believe will one day finish the Story that Must Not Be Named, but not before I finish the one you can almost talk about without making me squeak in guilt, which according to the terms of our ancient pact means that your lot have to at least get out of bed ;-) -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR! If you say one single word about now being old I will a. throw things in your direction, b. roll my eyes from my almost decade-older vantage point, and c. scoff. I hope that you are having a fabulous day and that the present fairies have splashed out with something lovely.

And a wee bit late, GREAT CELEBRATIONS OF YOUR BIRTH to nursedarry ! Darry, you are are seriously one of the loveliest people I have met in fandom and -- look, just never leave, the place would go quickly to pot without you. Your wit and wisdom are required! and I hope they were suitably rewarded yesterday! Good luck with the packing!

Happy birthday for yesterday
, too, to the lovely hogwartsvixxxen  -- it sounds as though you had a great time! Hurrah for this year being so much better for you than last, may it continue to improve more and more! 

And also for silvershinigami , even though you've disappeared of late. Did that boy work out? Did life become Very Busy? Are you currently on a top-secret mission to uncover the secrets of Cold Fusion? I hope that you were suitably rewarded with cake even if it had to be dropped off inside a rolled-up newspaper by a man in a trenchcoat!

And oh cock, it's 1am again. Sorry everyone else I have missed, sleep calls. Last night it was so cold that I had to get up and put on legwarmers among other items of clothing. Why do I even OWN legwarmers? And don't scoff, you Northern set, lack of insulation in Sydney houses means if it's 8 deg C outside, it's 8 deg C inside. With windchill in our bedroom, as we have one hell of a draught. Great for indoor paper planes, less good for toasty sleeping. Tonight, I plan to use the doorsnake on the window before I try to drop off -- I can be taught!

NB Doorsnake is not a euphemism.

Thank you very much, my dear dear Brammers! I received a card from my co-workers that was covered in Famous Cats From The Internet, which says more about me than I should really be comfortable with.

Minerva merely yawned in my face and went back to sleep.

You know that I would buy that card were it available for sale, Y/Y?

Of course she did! She is a cat! Count yourself lucky she did not fart at you!

It is not available for sale, sadly, but it DID photograph well:

She usually doesn't hesitate to fart at me. Perhaps she knew today was somehow different.

Genius card! And yes, clearly that is her gift to you!

If I'd been able to coordinate myself out of the bedroom it would have been tea in the hot water bottle last night ;-)

Too cold to sleep, darling! I needed a proper down duvet, save that there are usually only two nights a year on which such a thing is bearable here, so I have a wool one for all the others.

That's pretty much what I ended up in. And what I will start out in tonight! XXX

I have Cookie the cat to keep me warm! Except she abandoned me for the warm spot in the study beside the computer tower. Little fiend. Monster sat on Mr B for a few hours, but could not be cajoled into snuggling behind my legs to share her toastiness. Why I feed these two is a mystery.

Alas, Mon goes to the highest point, and we both sleep on our sides, so he has a few inches on me due to his broad and manly shoulders v my petite frame. Also, she is a fat bastard and a bit crushing. Little Cookie is better as a shoulder cat, but harder to lure into work!

MUCH TOASTIER! *Feels like a lupin for complaining about 8°, can hear Norwegians laughing from here*

I'm not going anywhere.

Aside from Reading, but that has yet to be taken over by the Merlin fans yet.


You'll not be rid of me THAT easy!

blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 27th, 2011 03:51 pm (UTC)
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! (And now I have the Ballad of Reading Gaol as an ode to HP fandom lost to Merlin running through my head, dammit!)

I NEVER WISH TO BE RID OF YOU! (But sorry I failed to mention this on your actual birthday ... oh, you know me and timeliness, we've met, but we're not close!)

Somebody had to ;-)
Bryoneybryoneybrynn on May 27th, 2011 04:18 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much darling - and look at that, you got my birthday dead on the day so really, you can't be messing them up that badly. *g*

I shall say nothing about my age having whined quite enough about that lately. Today is reserved for cake. *nods firmly*

Hello friend of Brammers - happy birthday and glad to hear the complaints about aging are on hold. Or I would have to join her in scoffing at you :) and I'm even older than she is......
shu_shu_sleepsshu_shu_sleeps on May 27th, 2011 10:34 pm (UTC)
Of course you own leg warmers because you are organised and prepared for the cold. Mr B should also be keeping you warm - you tell him from me that he is obviously failing in his duty if you are still getting cold.

And doorsnakes are your friend - I have them all around the house to trip up unsuspecting thieves and to block draughts.

Thank You oh so much! I can't tell you what this means to me. I've been having a hard time this year with my birthday and having an on-line sister and family like you helps just as much as my rl family. I had a wonderful time though.

Thanks again Sis I Love you! *clings*
