32

Form a line to the throne comments box because today, dear readers, is my birthday.

The day began with bright sun streaming through my window and crisp blue surrounding the visible sliver of Sacre Coeur. Birds - I kid you not - were warbling on the balcony.

My roommate had left a pot of strong coffee waiting, along with a spot-on funny gift. I drank it in slowly while making a new mix tape CD, quite content to be hookey from work.

A date drew me out of musical solitude, and I set off to meet Catherine around 12:30.

A perfect assiette at the Cantine de Quentin, and then a walk along the shining canal.

Cath returned to work and I continued on to meet another girl. After four months apart, I wasn't sure what to expect from our reunion. My bike was waiting for me outside an Oberkampf pool hall, a little worse for wear but still beautiful. I hopped on for a wide-eyed ride through the city and then installed the bike at her new digs in Montmartre.

I later transferred my fesses to Nicole's scooter - a machine that always makes me feel like a teenager. There was much "wheeeee!!!" as we rode over for cocktails near Abbesses. And there was much gossip to accompany our kir.

I haven't even told you about the Vagina Party yet, have I? The one that spawned at least 5 (however temporary) couples? The one that left me exhausted at 6 am amid a pile of red feathers?

That'll have to wait.

After 5 consecutive nights of stuffing my gullet, I am calling it an early night. Perhaps tomorrow, after some digestion, I can be clever again. For tonight I'm just pleasantly stuffed. And quite grateful to friends for the filling.

I shall leave you with this hopeful message from the Onion:

Your Birthday Today

After days of grave and anxious discussion, the stars have decided that it's better you don't know.

Happy birthday my dear, too bad I couldn't make it to the VagiNight. In the meantime, I don't think you've been visiting my blog lately or you would've known how grossly tagged you've been. And I'm counting on you to show us that singing talent of yours that I once got to see. In case no one knows it yet, our Meg sings like a diva!
Bon anniversaire.

As we say in Canada: "Ma chère Meg, c'est à ton tour, de te laisser parler d'amour."

Happy 32nd, sweetie -- your official 10,000th birthday in binary!

Happy Natal Existence day!

I would love to hear more about the vagina fest. I'm currently buried in the sex lives of the burrowing owls who like to get down and dirty here in Alberta. Owls like to par-tay!

Happy birthday - exactly one day late! Love your blog, hope you have another F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S year!

Feral Mom said...

Happy Birthday! And remember, 32 is just 23 reversed.

The Late Bloomer said...

Just stopping by to wish you a very Happy Belated B-Day -- hope it was a great one.

Sounds like you had a lot of celebratin' goin' on -- that's the only way to do it!

Linda said...

Happy Birthday! I can barely remember when I was 32. Life goes by too quickly. Enjoy every moment.

nardac said...

I almost forgot but we were too dumb the other night to just import the songs off the CD onto your harddrive. That would have at least have sped up your ailing PC laptop. That thing's as souped up as a Casio calculator watch.

Happy Barfday.

le Meg said...

Thanks everyone for the bday wishes.
You're all lovely.

Except for Nardac, of course, who is cruel.
