- Frere Jacques Birthday
- Happy Birthday,
May your day be pleasant,
Open up your present,
Just for you,
Just for you.
--Binky the Clown on Garfield and Friends
OK, so it's a dumb poem, but it's less annoying than a lot of other birthday songs.
Today is Peter's birthday! Hooray! You should call him and sing him the birthday song of your choice. Call me if you don't know his number, and I'll be happy to give it to you (I assume that if you know my number, you're somebody safe to give his number to).
Birthday plans are modest this year -- as they generally are for Peter's birthday. I'm making him his special cake (sweetened with honey, which doesn't seem to mess with his blood sugar), and I have a couple of GREAT presents that I found at Goodwill a few months ago and I've been excited about giving him ever since (as well as some boring presents that're things he needs).
We may go out for dinner tomorrow, but tonight is Monday, and we have 3 TV shows we're following on Mondays this season. Chuck will probably have a regular episode, but both Journeyman and Heroes ended with big cliffhangers last week, and we really want to know what'll happen next. There's only a few more weeks till the regular midseason break, and we don't know whether there'll be any more episodes after that due to the writers' strike, so we're watching while we can (we did consider taping the shows, but since we've only got a rabbit-ears antenna on top of the TV, reception is pretty bad to begin with, and it gets worse when you pipe it thru the VCR, and you can't adjust it if you're not there while it's recording).
So back on topic, HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETER! I hope you have a great one!
