Here is the place where I thank you all for the kind wishes you have all sent from from across the blogosphere! Mama Bull always taught me that if i thank someone in person, I don't have to write a thank you note to them. So, consider yourself all duly thanked. Yes, even you, guy in the back who just showed up to get some ice cream.
I truly wish you all could have been here for my sixth birthday celebration. (But I would have needed to buy more cake). It was a pretty fantastic affair as it was, tho'! First of all Björk got the entire crowd to sing Happy Birthday to me...in Icelandic!
Thank you, Miss Björk! Or, should I say...takk fyrir!
i had an ever-so-wonderful and fun time with my very closest friends, too! My sister Marshall (and her pet unicorn Sparkle) and my best pal Snuckles and even Shelly the Little Otter Puppet came to my birthday party. (Of course she did...there was free birthday cake!)
Then I had to make a wish and blow out the candles. I wished for world peace, an end to hunger, health for everyone, and a bitchin' sports car that looks like the Batmobile.
Dig in, guys! It's full of rich chocolately goodness!
I'm so gonna have another piece of this before I go to bed. And for breakfast tomorrow morning.
We didn't have enough tiny plastic tastin' spoons from Baskin-Robbins to go 'round, so my pals had to share. Shelly just ate it with her paws anyway.
Then, gift-o-rama YAYYYYYYYYY! I highly suggest that when you are opening gifts, make sure you get the card out of the way first. You appear polite and well-mannered to look at it before rippin' into your gifts, and then you don't have to waste valuable gifting time on envelopes.
NOW IS THE TIME ON BIRTHDAY WHEN WE OPEN GIFTS
Shelly got me...anchovies. Golly. Um. Gee. Thanks.
Coincidentally, Shelly really really likes anchovies. Sure, Shelly...you can keep it. Sigh.
This one's from Marshall! (I sure hope it isn't sardines.)
Way cool! (Or should I say, spiffing?) It's a rubber stamp shaped like London's Big Ben! Thank you, Marshall!
It even has an instruction book, all in Japanese. Help me, Puffy AmiYumi!
By the way, my sister Marshall would like you to know that she has a unicorn now. Her name is Sparkle and she is the prettiest, most lovely unicorn in all the whole world, and fairies and pixies braid her mane and they have tea parties and...Marshall, I'm not going to read any more of this out loud.
OMG HOLY COW EXCLAMATION POINT IT'S THE BEST GIFT IN THE WORLD THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON CLOBBERING THE GIFT OF BEN GRIMM!!!!!!!!!
I got a sketchbook to work on my drawing! And when I go to comic book creating seminars at Bergen Street Comics, I will be all ready to work on all my comics like Giant-Size Superbull Annual #1 and my miniseries of Bully: Totally Kickass Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.* and his Partner Jane Wiedlin. There will be no appearances of Dark Wolverine in my comics, I can tell you that much!
*Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage and Law-Enforcement Division
And a wonderful case of brand-new pencils to sketch with! Without otter teeth marks on them!
Hey wow, it's the newest Marvel Adventures: The Avengers digest! Them's good readin'! Thank you, Snuckles!
And a whole stack of new comics! All my favorites! And no Norman Osborn hoorayyyyyyy
And, I got the Doctor Who Season Four DVD set! It's Donna-riffic! I shall remember this birthday gift forever. (Unlike Donna.)
Thank you everyone! (Even you, Shelly!)
All in all it was the best sixth birthday ever! Isn't that so, Mister Grimm?
That's right, kid! But you know what time it is now, doncha?
Um, what time would that be, Mister Grimm?
It's second helpin's of cake-erin' time!
So, while I and all my anipals enjoy second helpings of rich, dark chocolate cake, why don't you have a helping or ten of a very special birthday Ten of a Kind...it's my gift to you!
And then Keira Knightley came over and for my birthday present she and I went down in the London Underground and she sang to me! (swoons)
Oh maybe it was just cake-induced hallucinations. Whichever...it was the best birthday ever.
