Happy Birthday, Mental Flies!

And on a day when we're remembering old friends (please see post below), it seems particularly appropriate to pause for a moment and deliver our best wishes to veteran bloggist, Mentis Fugit (also our thanks to Anntichrist S. Coulter for the timely reminder).
Happy birthday, Mentis!  I had trouble figuring out what to get you, then it finally hit me: a glamour shot of Lillian Roth and Francis Dee as mermaids, because there is never a situation in which that is not appropriate.

***SIGH!!!***

Yer not supposed to TELL people that I hadda remind you, Scott, you're supposed to let them assume THAT YOU REMEMBERED ALL ON YOUR OWN, BECAUSE THEY'RE PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO YOURSELF ***AND*** WORLD 'O CRAP!!!!!!

***SIGH!!!***

At any rate, Happy Natal Day, Mentis. I, for one, am damned glad & grateful that you happen to grace this planet at roughly the same time as I do.

HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY-HAPPY JOY-JOY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY JOOOYYYYYY!!! TA-DAH-DAH-DINK-DINK! DINK-DINK!

Feel privileged, boy --- I haven't expended the precious energy to do the WHOLE SONG for ANYBODY lately, so while I go recover, think-up really loverly ways to thank me. And, since you didn't RE-CONTRIBUTE TO TEH BIRFDAY LIST AND THUSLY YER BIRFDAY SNUCK-UP ON ***ALL*** OF US, yes, yer birfday prezzie will be late, but it will, eventually, make its way across the South Pacific to you. Be nice if you ANSWERED ANY OF YOUR BIRFDAY E-CARDS, THOUGH...


(p.s.: my "security word" this time is "WAWANG," which is undoubtedly some Maori word for an indelicate body part...)

P.S. SCOTT: Since it seems like "radio silence" on Mentis' end this past couple-three days, I will thank you in his stead until his crotchety ginger ass ACTUALLY SHOWS UP...

And yes, I know, it's rude & intrusive to "out" anybody as a GINGER, but what the hell, it's not like gingers are treated as pariah-ish online as they are in England!

Right?

Right?

Well, one can hope...

The Knack, right?

Happy birthday, Mentis!

And gratitude is due to Annti, for the stirring rendition of Stinky Wizzleteats' magnum opus. Brava!

Anntichrist S. Coulter said...

Bowing daintily, pinkies raised as she delicately raises her flaming-red petticoats...

Thank ye, Doc!

Anntichrist S. Coulter said...

...and, being semi-senile, she tosses one of her black-blood-colored roses over to Thunder for the gawdless-awful pun!

Mentis Fugit said...

Thank you kindly, Annti, Scott, et al. My online presence is vastly diminished at present for a wide variety of reasons, none remotely tragic or more than mildly alarming.

Thunder, I have always Lacked the Knack.

The picture reminds me, we had fish and chips on my birthday. I hope it wasn't anyone Lillian or Francis knew.

Happy birthday, Mentis! Glad it's nothing tragic or alarming. Hopefully you've just been leveling up on this whole First Life game.

And Scott, oh those lovely mermaids.

Anntichrist S. Coulter said...

Ditto D. on those mermaids! Ya just don't see that quality of mermaid these days, my tattoos notwithstanding...

Rowr. Ah-oogah! And furthermore, eyeballs popping out Tex Avery-ishly.

Now that's what I call a "Catch of the Day"! You can hop in my creel anytime, ladies.

Happy b-day! You must rate highly, Mentis, to deserve such a gift.
