Robyn's Birthday...

Ohno and Robyn's bouquet.

Next week, on the 16th is Robyn's birthday. I realize today I won't be able to drive down as I did last year to deliver flowers and a card. I have appointments. And if I do, I'll be driving in rush hour traffic. Suzy cannot drive in rush hour traffic!!!!
If you chose to, here's the water tower before the exit. Trust me, you can't miss it! It's really, really big.

Yummy.

Ah yes...the old BMW. Rembember when! No really. Remember?!
Last year's bouquet.
Parking at the convenience store to find directions. Yup, I got lost. CHIPS was no help. The store clerk gave me directions.
What? You expect something remarkable? Please. I do the best I can.
XO

reyjr said...

Birthdays are great! And they only come once a year. :D

Auntie, aka cagny said...

Happy b/day to Robyn. That big water tower looks like something from outer space...

Karen ^..^ said...

Aww, those bouquets are lovely. So are the fuzzies. Absolutely gorgeous.

Happy Birthday, Robyn!!!

Karen ^..^ said...

Oh, and verification word was "rosess"

No lie.

This one made no sense, so I'll not write it.

Suzanne said...

Yes Leah, you will be home, but will you be sain?

Suzanne said...

Reyjr,

You will have to contribute. You know that, right?

XO

Suzanne said...

Auntie,

When the hell did you arrive? Okay, so you know Robyn, right? If not you have some stuff to research! Not much time, so get crackin'.

I know, isn't that water tower wierd? But trust me, it's just before Robyn's exit. You can't miss it! If you do you're already in San Francisco.

XO

Suzanne said...

Karen...wake up...her birthday's next week.

Suzanne said...

Word verification is too cool. Don't you just love it? I hear ya sista!

Megan said...

I know right where that water tower is...

Isn't it a bit early to be birthdaying? Or are we just going to celebrate April as Robyn's birthday MONTH?

Suzanne said...

Megan, no baby, it's next week. It's next Thursday. So stop staring at that damn water tower.

;)

Skeeter said...

Happy Birthday, Robyn!

Best wishes,

Skeeter

Leah said...

I won't be sane.

Megan said...

Jeez, you're right Suz. Where the heck does the time go????

Happy Birthday Robyn!!!!

reyjr said...

Contribute??!?

*checks his wallet

Aren't third world country citizens exempted? :p Haha!

Happy Birthday Robyn! Just send me the bill.

Suzanne said...

Leah,

I was hoping to see you. I mispelled sane to see if you'd arrive. You're here!!! That's just too damn funny! I actually though Cece would arrive first to correct me, but she didn't. Thank God you did!!!

Honey, you okay? You survive Texas? I tried to get on Twitter to read your "stuff," but apparently didn't log on to "Twit" properly. Damn. There are only 24 hours in a day sweetie and it took 30 minutes. I didn't have another 30 minutes to get it right. I'll try again in the next day or so.

I was talking to Rob the other night about your "Jazz" comment and said "You know, you two should have a blog about Jazz, you'd probably both make a hell of a lot of money!" Leah, you know I'm not your intellectual equal, but Rob is. You'd love him. He's a whole hell of a lot of fun, and yes, writes really well because of all that lawyer stuff!!! For some reason I can see the two of you with a really successful jazz blog. And I think it's needed. You could visit all the NY clubs!!! But don't get backed into another corner for God sakes! Who knows where a tongue has been!

XO

I'm serious.

Suzanne said...

Megan,

That's what I said. Where does the time go? I was just there yesterday. Oh, that was last year!

I'm trying to figure out how to get a bouquet and card to Robyn, but honestly, don't think I can do it. She's just down the road from the park, but in order to get to my appointment I have to boogie. I can't do it. So I thought of trying to get to her between appointments. No way. After appointments...rush hour. It's impossible. Maybe I'll figure something out, but I don't think so. We'll see what happens. I'll do my best and keep you all informed. If I post photos of me doing 100 on Hwy 5 without being arrested, she'll get a damn bouquet from all of us!!!

Happy Birthday Robyn!!!

XO

Suzanne said...

Reyjr,

Don't worry honey, I have you covered!!!

XO

Suzanne said...

Auntie,

No honey, it's just a water tower! Why? Who knows!
XO

Suzanne said...

Skeeter,

I've never been able to enlarge the photo. What are you displaying?

XO

Suzanne said...

Karen,

Hi honey. Don't you hate when the first one doesn't work. Ugh!

My fuzzies and flowers are special. Stick around and enjoy the year. We have so much fun.

Love you darling,
Me!

Leah said...

Omigosh it's the 16th and it's Robyn's birthday!!!!! SQUEEEE!!!!

just prop me up and pour some drinks down my gullet and I'm good to go!

Happy birthday Robyn dear!!!!!

Suzanne said...

I KNOW FOR ABSOLUTE SURE I DID'T POST THIS BECAUSE I CAME BACK TO ERASE MY RANT FROM POOR MEGAN'S BLOG.

Hummmmmmmmmmm. Who did this. Thanks. Robyn deserves this, but I certainly do not. I have become what I absolutely detest...A PAIN IN THE ASS! *Suze is over heard "Doctor it hurts on my right cheek. No, my left. No, my right. No, my left."*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBYN!!!

*Suze is seen checking into rehab...* NO! Not really. I'm an enabler and have to pour something down Leah's gullet apparently because Bob isn't here. *Rolls eyes in head.*

XO

P.S. Leah, you're the best. Thanks for showing up.

P.S.S. Megan, I'm sorry. I'll go back and delete that. I've just become...

Oh, right, I'm just who you all know. An absolute pain the the ass. Sorry about that. *Suze is last seen picking roses in the dark, muttering, "I am okay, I am okay."* :(

Suzanne said...

Megan,

I went back to delete. I didn't. Your comments are too adorable and wouldn't make sense without my stupid honey. Thanks.

XO

Robyn said...

Thanks WO gang! You all the best! I had a fantastic day! Jim took to get my toes done all cute and sat in too to have the ladies give him a foot and leg massage and groom the toes as well! Then he popped up and bought everyone in the place coffees! Even the ladies who were getting their toes done as well...everyone there was cooing at Jim and saying to me what a wonderful man Jim was....I just purred!

Then we came home and snuggled on the couch to watch a girlie flick! And then we had the best pasta dish that Jim cooked! Yes...I was spoiled and loved every minute of it!
Love you all now I must lay my head down!

*slowly looks around the bar and stretchs up to pull the open sign's chain to off...with a click the neon goes out. Robyn heads for the door and eases it open till she feels the cool breeze hit her face...one last glance around the Wild Onion, she thinks, yes that was one great party, door closes behind her and key easily slips into lock, till the next party...which won't be long waiting!*

Suzanne said...

Robyn,

You know what? You're the best. Now I understand why that outfit looks so beautiful and why you an Giggie were able to make Brian's Cafe work all those months. Talent.

I miss you every day baby. You're the best. You've never really graced the Wild Onion, but your memory lives on and we all love you.

Jim is the best. I'm hungry. Any pasta left? Dont' worry, just enjoy this beautiful day and your life. I love you very much darling. I hope you have a beautiful birthday year.

XO

Megan said...

I reposted it. I should have added stuff for you, Robyn, sorry about that!

Happy yesterday birthday!

Hey Suz, you rant ALL YOU WANT. That's part of what the Onion is for, right?

Right?

Squirrel said...

happy birthday to Robin


nice furry pals and roses--the first cat shot should be a poster on my wall!

Suzanne said...

Megan,

You're a sweetie. Thanks for reposting it. It was so nice to see Robyn here. I don't know if you've found time to go back and read all the months of Brian's Cafe on CSI's blog, if not, just know the place was an absolute hoot. Robyn and Gig were two of the best damn waitresses on the planet. They really made that place sing.

And thanks too for embracing my rant. You're a good woman and I adore you. I gotta run because I'm really busy. Planning a wedding is so hard and time consuming!!! So have we decided on a date yet?

What? *Looks around for more tulle.*

;) XO

just bob said...

It better not be on a Saturday or Sunday during football season.

Suzanne said...

Squirrel,

How funny to see you here. I feed you every single day. You want more!? What an appetite!

About the photo. My art consultant insists I have many of my photos turned into posters. I'm going to work on that. Before they become and "item" and cost my fans money I'll make you a deal. I'll email the photo. Free. Take it (but don't sell it or I'll have to kick your ass!), put it on a disk, go to your local Kinko's or Staples and have it enlarged to poster size, or what ever size. Frankly, I think it would look lovely hung the same way you see photos in a museum. As a 5x8 with about a 5-8 inch mat and a black frame, but that's just me...I'm an artist and I have opinions!!! If you really want it get my email from almost any of the above (I don't share it on my blog (God I just realized I forgot to email Karen!!!)) and I'll forward the little gem. After you have it postersized, if you want it signed, mail it to me. Signed it will be worth so much more than you paid to have it enlarged. Probably a few bucks more!!! But just think about it becoming an actual poster. You have the first signed copy. That's money in the bank baby!!! Trust me!

Oh, and one more thing. If you have it blown up to poster size have it mounted on foam core. Any good framer can do that (cheap). Instant art! Thanks for stopping by and come back soon. Art 101 begins in a week, so please sign up before the class is full!!! I'd hate to wait list you.

XO ;)

Suzanne said...

I'm laughing too damn hard. I'm supposed to be doing chores and I'm sitting here reading this crap!!! Megan, you're a Steelers fan, right? I hope so because I saw something this morning you would love if you are. I walk out of WalMart and there it was. A car. I just started to laugh and couldn't stop. It was painted black and yellow with a huge Steeler's emblem on the front door. I hurried my cart to my car which I'd parked up in freakin' la-la land (almost near Hooters!) and dug for my camera. Found it. Walked back an acre to the vehicle in question and it was gone. GONE!!! Gone I tell you. Remedy. As you know WalMart video tapes a fart, so you know that car is on camera. Just give them this info: Natomis, CA, April 17, 2009, approx 9:45. If they don't respond just say it's "your car," and was hit by another in there parking lot (hit and run). Trust me, that photo will be emailed immediately to prove you wrong!!! Oh, and just so you know, it was parked to the left of the right entrance...first slot after handicapped. It's a sunny day and the car really looked good. You should probably mention all that because details really do matter.

Oh, and if you aren't the Steelers fan, please forward this to the one who is.

Love you!
;)

Suzanne said...

Bob, knock it off. Weddings typically take place on a Sat or Sun. Get your head out of the damn Astro-Turf buddy. And just so you know, they typically take place in Spring, unless the bride is a football fan. *Suz is seen blinking an awful lot and scratching head.* Will this wedding ever happen?

Suzanne said...

December's lookin' good!

just bob said...

Sorry Blottie, December is football season. Work with me will ya?

Suzanne said...

Megan,

"Their," not "there." Yes, I do know proper spelling. I'm just not good at it!!!

What?

;)

Suzanne said...

Bob, Bob, Bob,

I was wondering if you'd notice!!! That's too funny. Well, with both of you being football fans we could have a "theme" wedding and the ceremony on a football field. I'm laughing almost too hard to write this. Okay, so you'd want it in Boston and Sweet Pea would want it in Pittsburg. I have a wonderful idea. Why not compromise and have it at Giants Stadium!!! It's beautiful in December...*Suze looks around for the keys to the snow plow.*

I think I'm finally on to something with this one! Why? Because I'm workin' with ya brotha.

XO Blottie ;)

just bob said...

We could do it at halftime during a game.

Suzanne said...

When you say "do it," what do you mean? Them there's loaded words. I'll have to consult the bride to be (BTB) before I sign off on this one.

XO TWP

P.S. I was just at your blog and laughed my ass off. My comment last night is hilarious. I have no idea what I was up to, but apparently was trying to use every single word in the English dictionary! *Takes Bob's face gently in hands,* "Honey, you don't have to respond to that damn thing!!!" No really, you don't!

Megan said...

At halftime I'm usually making snacks. Or going for more beer.

Suzanne said...

Megan,

Look, honestly we're going to have to compromise at some point if this wedding is going to succeed. Here's my proposal (hold on a moment, I have to rescue my damn kitty from masking tape...seriously).

Okay, I'm back. I suggest you two get a room and figure out if your even compatable.. Then we'll discuss a wedding date. Obviously I advocate traditional values.

XO

Megan said...

Obviously! :)

just bob said...

What are traditional values... you mean like holding the door open and using the right fork for the salad?
