You Can Still Sing, Even With a Froggy Throat!

I hope you had a great weekend.  It's spring and we've had decent weather so I'm sure some of you may need to go back to work to get some rest.

I opened one of my wildlife publications recently and this riveting gribbiting little fellow greeted me:

 A little bird told me that a certain geek has a birthday soon.  
Then I ate it.  Gribbit.  Burp.

Yes, indeedy, this geek is celebrating another birthday.  *It's tomorrow and my age will be x'30'. Unlike last year, I'm hoping that I don't get a hail storm as my gift!

Yesterday (Sunday) was the 10th anniversary of the tornado that hit downtown Fort Worth.  It was quite an event.  There were a few deaths and a lot of damage.  Seeing the streets of downtown decorated with shreds of glass was not my idea of entertainment.  I wrote a post about it last year.  If anything, take the time to click on this link just to see the photo.  It shows the building I worked in at the time.

For my birthday this year, Hubby dressed up in my clothes:


Just kidding.  He needed a kilt for an online contest!    I told him that it takes a real man to wear a kilt.

Let's end today's post with a song:

Happy Birthday to Me
Happy Birthday Silly Geek
Happy Birthday, Happy Earth Day
Happy Birthday to Me.

*My age in hexadecimal notation.  Yeah, I'm a dorky geek.  I'll be 48.

Happy birthday, I love your blog, I am kind of a nerd geek also, I am from the Caribbean region and my birthday is in September, so some years there would be hurricanes the week of my birthday and I couldn't do anything.

Happy birthday!

Collette said...

The frog is so cute. And I think it does take a real man to wear a kilt. (& we'll leave it to you to know what's under there...lol)
We had a tornado here in July '97 & it was 15 days before my birthday. It's something I never want to go through again.
So, my dear friend, have a very happy birthday & may you get everything you want & need. (((HUGS)))

Happy Birthday!!! May the sun shine on you all day!!!! I personally love the kilt. A real man he is even without the Irish Spring (-;

Unfinished Rambler said...

48? Are you sh***ing me? You don't look a day over 25 in the photos I've seen of you.. ;) Okay, maybe a day, but only a day.

ReformingGeek said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you grab the hubs and go out and party like it's 1999 (when we were all younger and had the energy to stay up past 10pm!!). Cheers!!

Deb said...

Happy birthday, Reffie the geek!

Let's see...hubby wore the kilt for an online contest...in your garage? Go ahead. Tell us. He was really about to hop in the car in that kilt, drive to the nearest sheep farm and skip with the ewes, my darling. Right?

I knew it.

ReformingGeek said...

@Anything - Thanks! YeeHaw! Sounds good to me!

@Deb-squared - I can't tell you. The instructions for the contest self-destructed after five minutes....as did Tom Cruise! Yippee!

LOL! Sheep farm. Ewes? Uh oh. So THAT'S what Hubby has been up to lately.

Meadowlark said...

Well Happy Birthday to YOU!

Enjoy the day, milk it for all it's worth and go check out utilikilt.com for some more kickbutt kilts! :)

meleah rebeccah said...

Oh! yay! Happy Birthday to you!!

And that is the cutest little froggie photo I ever did see!

ReformingGeek said...

@Meadowlark - Thanks! I will check out utilikilt.com.

@meleah - Thanks. He IS a cutie, isn't he?

Tgoette said...

Hey I'm right behind you with the big 4 8. It only goes to show that '62 was a great year for people, right? Cool frog pic. We used to have a few of those White's tree frogs. Lovely smile don't ya' think? Have a very happy (warm and sunny) birthday!

Lauren said...

Happy, Happy Birthday. No looking back! Well, maybe a little, but not too far back to the awkward years, which for me, still haven't gone away. Yes, I'm living the dream.

Really. Have a great day and lots of fun while you still have the energy. That's right. You always have the energy since you're an endorphin junkie. Me, I'm just a junk food junkie. There's a song in there somewhere.

It take a big man to make fun of a man in a kilt. And an even bigger man to get away with it.

I hope it doesn't rain on your (birthday) parade.

CatLadyLarew said...

Happy, Happy Birthday, Reffie! You'll always be a sweet young thing to me!

ReformingGeek said...

@Tgoette - Yeah, '62 WAS a great year! Thanks. I don't think I've seen any of those frogs around here. Bummer.

@Lauren - I know what you mean about the awkward years. I'm still there, too. Thanks. No need for a song. ;-)

@Mike - No kidding. As for raining on my birthday parade, I have had to attend funerals on my birthday before.

@CatLady - Ahhhhhs, Thanks!

mama-face said...

It's your birthday so shout hurray!! (Does x30 mean 60?)

Leeuna said...

Happy Birthday Dear Reffie. Hope you have the best day ever. Oh, and I love that cute little frog. Your hubby's kinda cute too in his kilt. * wink *.

Connoiseur of Fine Men's Wear Marv said...

DH looks rather dashing in his (your) kilt!

And Happy B-Day, Reffie - YAY!

The Old Silly

ReformingGeek said...

@Mama-face - I LIKE the wittle froggie!

@Leenua - Thanks. That's what I keep telling him!

@Marvin - I'll make sure he hears about your comment, Marvin! Thanks for the birthday wishes. I'm having a great day.

Me-Me King said...

Wooo-hooo! I just love a man in a kilt. Yeah, I know, he's taken. lol!

Some friends of the family always wear kilts to special events, like weddings. As long as there are shorts underneath, I'm not complaining. LOL.
