  9. Thanks so much guys! It's so sweet of you all to send the birthday wishes!

    The Surly Child saw the picture of Shirtless Putin and said, "OF COURSE!"

    I was hoping that Tim Kennedy and Brian Stann would show up and move boxes for me (while I sat in a lawn chair and sipped iced tea), but that didn't happen. Then I was hoping that Shirtless Putin would move all the boxes and heavy furniture, but that didn't happen, either.

    BUT - I did find a navy blue, polka dot pin-up dress on sale. And THAT was awesome. :)

  10. LMAO! What a brilliant card!

    Happy belated birthday AFW! (Or should that be belated happy birthday?). Whichever way round it should be, many happy returns. I hope you had a great day even in the middle of moving. Good luck on the move and I hope you have an easy time settling in to your new surroundings.

  11. Belated again, but Happy 29th to AFW. Have a safe journey.

    And, er, uhmm ... that photo of Vlady: he looks like he's real light in his loafers to me. How many photos are there of him with women, versus posing with men or just swishing about half nekid?

    1. LOL aridog, you could be right!


  12. Hmm, missed this somehow, so let me say I hope your birthday WAS excellent, and that all your coming ones are as well.

  13. Thanks, guys. :)

    Ari - you may be onto something. All I know is that Russian men like their vodka and like their bath-houses. And, according to the movie Eastern Promises, those bath-houses are the scene of naked fighting the likes of which Viggo Mortensen should be ashamed.

    I mean, really. I'm pretty sure that any man who tries to full-out Sambo for his life *naked* is going to injure himself pretty severely before any punches are even thrown.

    PS: There's an entire drunk Russian meme on YouTube. I once got caught in that loop for about three hours, alternately horrified and laughing my ass off. The guy that tried to fight the tree? Awesome.
