Happy Birthday to Me
If you watch this, I encourage you to make it past the early butt joke. Trust me, it picks up after that. What this has to do with birthdays, I haven’t a clue, but if you search for this video online it’s called Birthday Greetings from Joe Cocker and it is one of my favorite things of all time.
Thanks to Gregory K for the link.
So, yup. I turn 31 today. I am celebrating by taking the week off to blog and stuff. Because that’s how we 31-year-olds roll.
This second video comes from Big A little a where Kelly Herold wrote, "I chose ÐŸÑƒÑÑ‚ÑŒ Ð±ÐµÐ³ÑƒÑ‚ Ð½ÐµÑƒÐºÐ»ÑŽÐ¶Ðµ…a song from Cheburashka, one of Russia’s most-loved cartoons. This song serves for many Russian speakers as a birthday song. " It never really occurred to me that the Happy Birthday Song changes from country to country. Now THERE’S a children’s music CD in the making. Collect all the birthday songs from different languages and put them together. I would buy that.
Thanks to Big A little a for the link.
Happy birthday greetings too to my fellow April 23rder Jill Davis. Ditto Shakespeare, Nabokov, Shirley Temple Black, and former President Buchanan.
