Happy Birthday! Bonne Fete! Buon Compleanno! Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! Breithla Shona Dhuit! Chuc Mung Sinh Nhat! Dogum gunun kutlu olsun! Meow!

Geez, I sure hope I didn't say anything rude there! If I did, apologies to Mrs. Peeps, and my English, Quebec French, Italian, German, Irish, Vietnamese, Turkish and kitty friends!

OK peeps, we're going to play a little game...First, you have to imagine that I coordinated a birthday party for Mrs. Peeps. Secondly, that you were invited. Thirdly, that Ms. Blonde One was: in town; made a lovely cake covered in delicious icing; and that it had the correct number on it. Lastly, that we sang a little song that started with the words "Happy Birthday..."

Mrs. Peeps always says it's the thought that counts! So, thank you all for coming. Mrs. Peeps had a lovely time and the cake was scrumptious. (One day, I'm sure, Ms. Blonde One will make you a cake. No guilt. No pressure. It's not like she's bragged about her cake-making abilities or waved any under your nose or anything.)

P.S. Can someone pick up Grandma Mrs. Peeps from the floor and/or call an ambulance? She probably had a heart attack when she saw the number on the cake...

WHOA! That's one beautiful cake! Happy Birthday Mrs. Peeps! (I'm a little concerned about the number on the cake too. What up?)

P.S. Mrs. Peeps, I'll be picking you up at about 7:20 a.m. Monday morning because the loot I have for you is too much to be toting on public transportation!

P.P.S. Mrs. Blonde: October 2nd. I like chocolate cake.

Wow! That was such a great imaginary party! Sorry I drank a little too much and threw up on your couch. I'm sure you can get that red wine stain out.

Happy Birthday. I recognized the Vietnamese . . . although Vietnamese people don't really celebrate birthdays . . . so I'm surprised you found it :)

Number on the cake? what number? I can hardly see it... is that a 29? Yes, it must be. It can't be anything else.

The cake looks great!

Happy Birthday to Mrs. Peeps!

The Blonde one is a bad...bad...friend. She did not call Mrs. Peeps on her Birthday....and now she must submit herself to koko and hope she will say nice things so that Mrs. Peeps will forgive her....I see cake in her future.

There's NO WAY IN HELL that number is right... you're kidding!!! I NEVER would have pegged you at 50. EVER. I'm still in shock.

Anyway - HAPPY B-DAY!!!

You can always tell who reads the fine print and who looks at the pretty pictures...so, just to clarify:

The cake WAS made by Ms. Blonde One, but NOT for Mrs. Peeps. Ms. Blonde One was out of town and out of touch. Mrs. Peeps was blatantly ignored. This was a feeble ploy to make Ms. Blonde One feel guilty in order to obtain her own cake with a much lower, more appropriate number.

Mrs. Peeps was indeed glad and much relieved to hear that no one could believe she is the age on the cake. Although is it really a number? Perhaps it is just a blase existential commentary on birthdays and actually says "SO" not "50"!

Anyway back to spring cleaning, we must clean the couch now that our wild party guests have left...
