Happy Birthday, Suezboo!

I'm sitting on a plane, hoping I'd have room, once we took off, to break out the laptop and do this properly.  Alas, the seats and tray tables are slightly more petite than dollhouse furniture, and the aircraft is so round, so firm, so fully packed, that it feels a bit like sharing an MRI tube with two other people.  So let me see if I can slip this in before they make me turn off my phone...

Today is the birthday of longtime Crapper and our ambassador from the Southern Hemisphere, Suezboo!  Ordinarily I would have dug up a dashing Sexy Birthday Lizard, but I hope under the circumstances Suez will pardon me for defaulting to the only picture I have on my phone that shows both Riley and Moondoggie doing their famous Wedding Cake O' Cats routine:
Please join me in wishing Suezboo a very happy natal anniversary!  SBL Pending!

That's ok, Scott, I've got you covered on this one. One SBL coming right up.

Happy Birthday, suezboo, from one Gemini to another!

Jimbo said...

Happy Birthday is it? Enjoy Suezboo! Who maybe was born in 1957 when the world had that dust up about who controls the Suez Canal and Ike said "Screw you, England and France, this is colonial bullshit."

Or maybe her name has nothing to do with that. Anyways, merries.

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 joy joy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy happy joy joy joooyyyyy!!! Pah-dah-tah-dink-dink, dink-dink!

Love you so much hon, sorry that I've been MIA, but I adore you & hope that you aren't suffering too awful much way down thar (how bad ARE the winters in S.A.?). & if it IS awful-cold, I hope that you're snuggly-warm with much-beloveds of whatever description floats your boat, baby girl. Plus I hope that YOU hit the lottery and cut me in someday, y'know, not much, just enough to never have to submit to slumlords ever the fuck again, and enough to set me up with a death squad for any & every scumbag who runs-over kittehs & puppehs INTENTIONALLY (sorry, been a rough coupla days, darlin' --- but I know that you'd do the same thing if you hit lottery money, huh?!?!)... That's not asking too much, is it? Can't wait to see the palace of beneficence that you'd build to help everybody you can reach, 'cause I know that you will!

Hugs & knishes, very-sheddy kitteh kisses, obnoxious kittehs all around (many to share, if anybody wants one!) & happy healthy puppehs to slurp-up the margarita salt off the end of your nose, birfday girl!

Love love love,
J/Yer Ranty Aunty Annti

P.S.: When Terrible Ted gets his new grill empire patented & churning-out amazingly beautiful stainless-steel, it's charcoal or gas for you, SuezBoo, and I'll sponsor grills for the whole Wo'C fambly if I ever hit that damned Powerball!

Scott said...

Slightly rough sauropodian sex! Nice one, GM. Thanks.

So STYLISH. So kitty.

Happy B-day, Suezboo!

EEEEEEEEEEEE < Squeal of Joy at getting a BDay message on W O'C.
Thanks, airbound Scott.
Grouch, if you want it ruff, go lizard, huh? NSFW SBLs are the new reptiles.
Jimbo, I was 10 during the Suez Crisis and met a new uncle.He was the Commander of a BP tanker that had to go the long way round and stopped off in Cape Town.Nevertheless, my nom de net is pronounced Sue zee boo and is from my little brother as a kid.
Riley and Moondoggie as usual the stars of this production.Riley can loll disdainfully like no other cat.
Thanks again, all.
Southern Suez

Annti, sweetheart, that was lovely. Thank you, girlfriend.
When (Positive Thinking is The Rule, right?)I win the lottery, I will donate widely to your Home for Lost Kits and Pups - pinkie swear. When (ditto)you win the lottery, you will use the leftover money to deliver that gas grill in person to SA which you will love and help me set up a Home for Lost Girls.
There is snow on the mountains as we speak.Brr.
Luv. Szb.

Suezie-boo, I also offer to harshly correct Carl NOW, so that we won't have to hear this bullshit when we're RICH PEOPLE... heh heh heh... and I bet that Oprah would let you have HER girls' school AT COST OR CHEAPER, considering... not funny, but still true. Besides, once YOU'VE vetted an employee, they'd damned well better be an atheist equivalent of "canonized"!

happy natal anniversary
Wrong province, I suspect.

Scott said...

Clyde: Thank you. I was groping for a Natal region joke, but the flight attendant was already halfway through the seat belt demonstration, and I panicked.

Scott said...

Grouchomarxist, has your birthday come and gone yet, or do we still have time to reciprocate the saucy saurian?

Anonymous said...

Is the southern hemisphere the one that controls intuition or logic? Or is that mayhem?

In any case, happy birthday, S-boo.

Now please forgive me for reading your name all these eons as Suzieboo.
No, I don't know why.


Weird Dave said...

Jeeze. People smart enough to know Natal is a region in South Africa.

Me, I get all confused by that telling-time-upside-down thing.
So am I three days late or three days early?

Oh well, have many many happy happy more.

Carl said...

So am I three days late or three days early?

Well, it's daylight savings time, so...

Come and gone, mercifully quickly. It was a close thing, whether I'd be born under the sign of the Bull, or just be born to sling the bull.

Of course, I'd never object to a Sexy Un-birthday Lizard ...


As gaud is my witness, I thought that was just a tender embrace. I didn't notice until just now that that male Green Anole was giving his mate a major hickey. (My dear, long-suffering wife has been bugging me to get a new pair of glasses -- as usual, she's right.)

Although, now that I think about it, sexytime involving a scaly partner is just naturally bound to be rough.

Smut Clyde said...

time to reciprocate the saucy saurian?
You kids and your slang.

M. Bouffant said...

More sincere in its lateness:

(Took me a while, but I figgered out Suezboo all by myself a couple yrs. back.)

Aw, thanks so much, guys.
OT : Does anyone else have problems accessing Sadly, No? I haven't been able to get in for days and I miss the gang. Is it my problem or have the hamsters died? Smut? Anyone?

Weird Dave said...

Update on Sadly, No!

Chris Vosburg said...

Happy Birthday, darlin', and thanks for the pronunciation guide (been trying to figure out how "suezboo" is supposed to be pronounced for years).

OMGOSH! I'm a bit late to the birthday festivities! Lovely SuezBoo-- Please accept many hugs and a wish for the most delightful year ever. Many, many, happy, healthy, wonderful, peaceful, prosperous years. Including that lottery thing.

Birthday Love from,
