And many more! (On channel 4)

This is my mum:

CIMG0374 - Copy

She is very old.


She’s brilliant, and beautiful, and utterly fab, and I love her more than can be properly communicated on ye Olde Rant and Roll.

And it’s her birthday!

As I will be seeing her in exactly two weeks, when the family descends upon New York for my sister’s wedding festivities, I didn’t send her card in the mail (plus Canada post is notoriously slow).

Also, one thing to know about my momma is that she is a Buddhist, zen master extraordinaire, so in her quest to reach nirvana she has shunned all worldly possessions.

(And yet despite this fact, I cannot seem to stop buying her all the beautiful jewelry that reminds me of her.)

I’m working on it, okay?

(Just not that hard.)

However, as soon as I saw this card I KNEW that I had to purchase it:


I mean, how perfect is that?

Momma, I love you to death, and if I could buy you a lifetime supply of nothing (or, at the very least, all the salmon and salads in the world), I would.

I would in an instant.

    birthdaze should be always fun. ’cause o’ you, i’ll try to consider ram (and ewe) ifficayshuns of all berthdaze henceforth (or 5th) i write about. (just went to a werkmate’s “double nickel”). and… you guys will enjoy the heck of N.Y. ! (you DO mean NY, NY, rite?)

      1. i know, i know, i have so many arcane and esoteric posts … one was about the BEATLE’s b.d. (“when i get older, losing my hair …”)

  2. Happy Birthday, mom!! Funny enough, the 14th is my Ryan’s birthday, as well. Seems all the best people’s birthdays are on this date. :) So jealous of you going to New York; Ryan and I are planning a trip there in October 2014, for our anniversary. Such a great city.
