HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO . . .

I just realized that since it's after midnight, it's my birthday. I could ignore it and not say anything, but some people know and it's on my Facebook page. I am 85. I'm very spry for 85. Oh, that's because I'm 56. Don't bother to ask what Willy Dunne Wooters gave me for my birthday because he doesn't do holidays and gifts. It's okay because he's generous all the time. God bless my Willy.

I'm going to take my sad depressing shitty joyful birthday thoughts to bed and sing happy birthday to me. I bet Franklin will join me.




A birthday alone is a little depressing. I don't know if it's more or less depressing than my first birthday alone. I can't remember that birthday because it's when I turned one.

I think Neil Patrick Harris was a mediocre Academy Awards host.

Please tell me in your comments what you think of his performance.

If you want to wish me a happy birthday, you can use the paypal account associated with my dumpedfirstwife@gmail.com email address. If you aren't sending money, then just forget the whole thing.

  1. Sorry you had to spend your birthday alone. I did last November as hubby died two days before. He didn't do holidays either. I'd send money if I could but I do send good wishes and vibes your way. Hang in there. Hugs!

    1. Sending money was a joke, but losing your husband isn't. I sympathize. It's hard to be alone. It seems as if your son is pretty good about visiting you. My children hate me.

  2. Happy Birthday! I am glad you have someone with you.

    1. Franklin is an excellent companion and easily bribed with a Milk Bone.

    1. Yeah. Gypsies, tramps, and thieves, we'd hear it from the people of the town they'd call us gypsies tramps and thieves. But every night all the men would come around. And lay their money down.

  4. Happy...Oh, I'm broke so I should follow your instruction and forget the whole thing. I didn't watch the Academy Awards because well, it's awarding the subjective no longer appeals to me. Shakespeare in Love won best picture. If that doesn't tell you that the Oscars is quite often wrong and frustrating, then Crash also won best picture.

    1. I love Shakespeare In Love. I love Crash. Get over yourself.

  5. Happy happy birthday!

    I love NPH, but good god that was a boring award show.

    1. Maybe he was nervous. He's usually a great host, but he was dull last night.

  6. Was the Academy Awards on? Damn, I missed it again for the 85th time. Noting bores me more than a bunch of self serving, egotistical, useless people gathering to award themselves with drunken debaucher and silly awards. I'd rather watch bowling or golf or a cooking show.

  7. Happy birthday, dear Janie Junebug! I don't know why you feel depressed when your birthday rolls around. Shuckins, if I could turn back the hands of time and be 56 again, I'd been turning cartwheels. I feel like I'm robbing the cradle having you as a friend (but I think we can make it work).

    I didn't watch the Oscars. The only televised competition I ever watch is the Miss Hawaiian Tropic contest. As her platform, the reigning Miss H.T. chose to bring peace and happiness to people all over the world.

    Please do some things today that you enjoy and be thankful for all the love you have in your life including the love of faithful friends like me. Once again I wish you a happy birthday, dear friend Janie, and many more.

  8. Haha to the paypal. Happy 29th. Neal seemed a little rushed. The fashion police on one show were not impressed with how he coordinated his tux with his husband's tux.
    Maybe that got him flustered.

    1. I didn't know he coordinated his tux with his husband's. He was just off. I think he was nervous.

  9. Hmmmm...let me see if I have any funny money in my paypal account! ;) Have a lovely day...hope you have recovered enough to eat cake!

    I didn't watch much of the oscars beyond the opening number, but that seemed adequate and more light hearted than they used to be years ago, so that is nice.

    1. It was a terrible opening number, or at least pretty bad. Certainly not as bad as Rob Lowe and Snow White, however.

  10. Your moroseness makes me laugh. Not sure why.

    Happy birthday, Dear Janie...Happy birthday to youuuuuuuuuuu!

    Love,

  11. A birthday with no good wishes is depressing, too. Happy Birthday, Janie.

  12. Happy Birthday! I too thought NPH was a little flat. He got off a couple of good zingers though concerning the lack of racial diversity among the nominees. And personally, I thought his underwear bit was funny. The funniest moment was right at the start when Benedict Cumberbatch was already drinking out of a flask to drown his sorrows.

    1. Cumberbatch and the flask was funny. I'd forgotten that. Thanks for the reminder.

  13. Okay, happy birthday anyway, but no money, my friend. I'd send one of those cards that says something stupid about a gift. As for Neil Patrick Harris, a bit of a flop last night what I saw of it. I even thought some of his suits were ill-fitted, a bit too tight. Hope you have a wonderful day. Just give yourself a hug and pretend we are all there with you. Pour the wine, girlfriend!

    1. I don't have any wine, but I have diet pepsi and some cookies. The last tux NPH wore was too tight. He looked like a little kid playing at being a grown up except then the tux would have been too big.

  15. Happy birthday! I don't have money but I do have well wishes and the power of friendship!

    1. So long. Farewell. Auf weidersein (probably spelled wrong and I don't care). Goodnight. I'd like to stay and see this pretty sight. I'd like to stay and drink six bottles of champagne and get laid.

  16. I can't sing as swell as Franklin but: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU....

    1. You're right. You don't sing as well as Franklin.

  17. No money...so I'll forget the whole thing. But Happy Birthday Anyway! Hope you have a great day.

    The awards sucked. NPH was not funny.

    BTW...Ray is always in St. Augustine. Either in the gallery most Wednesday's but the Lion's Seafood Festival (St. Augustine) is coming up next weekend. We shall be there!

    1. I'll talk to the Wooters man about it. If we can make it, no pictures allowed.

  18. Happy birthday Janie. I love your sense of humor.

    1. If I didn't have a sense of humor, I'd have nothin'. Franklin would leave me if I didn't make him laugh.

  19. I hope you at least fixed something yummy to munch on - on this 85/56 birthday!! Cheque's in the mail - um, no.
    NPH is not one of my favorites.
    Happy Birthday, again (smile). Blow out the candles> iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

    1. I liked NPH when he hosted other shows. Didn't like him last night. I have cookies and diet pepsi to sustain me and Franklin for a little romance. Kiss kiss kiss.

  20. You were left alone when you were one year old on your birthday!? OMG! That's horrible!

    I haven't watched the oscars. I recorded them because I do like Neil Patrick, but I always FF through a LOT of the show. Sounds like I will FF through even more this year--LOL! Or maybe never get around to watching at all. :)

    1. I don't think you'll watch much of the oscars. I probably wasn't left alone when I was one. I imagine my mom made one or more of my sisters take care of me. That's why I have so many scars.

  21. I'm exhausted after reading the recap. Sorry, I'm not sending you money, but I will send you and Franklin a hug. Happy day after your 15th birthday.

  22. I don't have Louis Vuitton luggage, but I have a credit card with a zero balance that will make Louis Vuitton luggage magically appear.

  23. I love birthdays, they mean we have survived another year with all that life has to throw at us

  24. Well a belated Happy Birthday and you are 39? Just like me:) Neil Patrick Harris sucked. Maybe I shouldn't beat around the bush eh? He was awful. Some jokes were OK but he needed to go under that locked glass box with his stupid briefcase and hope Olivia Wilde looks away

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, the briefcase thing sucked majorly. NPH sucked majorly. The ratings for the show were down. I bet some people turned it on and saw the lousy opening and turned it off. I'm not sure how old I am. Could be 96.

      Delete
  25. Happy Birthday! I hope there will be many more.Sorry I didn't pop in sooner, but I was away this week. I rather prefer quiet birthdays. I don't like a lot of fuss. I hope Franklin made your day extra special.
