Travel Forums Off Topic HAPPY BIRTHDAY Q'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Sorry for the delay in posting this thread, Q. I tried to get it up yesterday but had continual internet connection problems. (Couldn't stay connected long enough to hit submit and have it load. Ended up saving as a word file until today.) So, it's only belated because of the ash cloud that seemed to only be affecting our signal.

Anyway...

...A rather tired captain and crew board the Martini Blimp as they know they should have been in Canada a few hours ago. Nice ting, it's still May 22nd there so they will not be late. Just tired. And still a bit hung over.

"Captain, are you sure we're to be heading to Canada?" "Yessiree Matey, we're headed to Canuckistan! Granted, our birthday boy has been a bit out of the loop lately but he still has a birthday and we need to celebrate!" "Are we going to Toronto?" "Yup, that's his last known address... Unless he's moved to Europe and forgot to tell anyone... Could happen..."

With that, the Martini Blimp makes way for Toronto and the crew takes a snooze... "Captain, I think we're finally there!" "Excellent Matey! Set us down so we can find the intended. Do we have the you-know-what ready?" "Aye0aye, Captain, we do."

Yup, you know what happens now...

Thirty-five years I lay awake at night
Across my mind is one eternal fight
Inventing new ways to think and see
But keep old friends and answers to old ways

To frontiers my kind is following the spark
To build lighthouse for those who scared of dark
To frontiers where we befriend the shark
And stare at night but do not see the dark
Of sadness, madness...

Here I crawl to rise above (to rise above)
To rise above (to rise above)
Oh, what is godless and misleading
And touch the world (touch the world)
And touch the world (and touch the world)
And touch the world that isn't bleeding

'cause I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know
I don't know if anywhere in this universe there is this kind of love
I don't know if anywhere in this universe someone like you to know

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Q!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's hoping you had a wonderful day (May 22nd) filled with friends, family, lots of pressies from Simone and cocktails galore!!!!!! (Again, apologies for the delay.)

...Now with this one completed, the captain and crew hope for a stable connection long enough to use the time warp feature on the Martini Blimp so they aren't late for today's celebration...

Wowsers; all these birthdays in May!! Congrats Q!! Did you get spoiled?

Hi everyone !! No, Sam, I didn't get spoiled. Infact the original plan for the day was to go shovel free compost... Alas, we got delayed and other people got to the pile before us. Oh well, next Saturday then. Hopefully the city puts out more of the good brown stuff for us. We ended up running around town the rest of the day getting various things for the house/garden. We loaded up (overloaded ??) the Rav with stuff by the end of the day to the point I wasn't at all sure we could carry any more. :) The day was ended with a surprisingly good bottle of South Africian rose.

No, Isa, I'm still in Toronto. Check out the pic's on facebook to see where I am. Sorry, everyone, for my absence. Let's just say the last year has been an incredibly tough one for me. That's all I'll say here for now. Anyways, looking forward, things are starting to settle down. Still a lot to do, but I know, more or less, where everything is going to be now and can look forward to the future. Thanks for the birthday wishes !!!
