Happy birthday to you.

Have an absolutely peaceful and wonderful birthday. :)
Naomi, Happy Almost Birthday!! I wish I could be there at the start of your virtual birthday fest but we just got back from two weeks in Chicago and I'm about to plotz. But I'm thrilled that we'll get to see you in person very soon. I so enjoyed your recent family-related posts and pix and I wish I could've seen that production of "Jen the Hen" at Theatre West. How about a revival? I always loved Ann Morgan Guilbert, she was one of the best things on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (as was your other pal Bill Idelson). See you soon, and happy happy birthday!!
I'm the 5th guest that came in early. Wow! was greeted by a cute little tot. As I entered I saw some of those things with frills at the end. Got one. Was met by Blair and Melinda then was ushered to Walt and Clara who took care of me pretty well. They led me to where the food was and boy! was it served well and fit for a queen. Clara gave me a choice of drinks. As I sipping my drink, I thought of going around your garden to see those beautiful flowers you have and they were really beautiful. I'm staying in the garden till other guests come and till you make your appearance so we can sing you a Happy Birthday To You song then can have a piece of that lovely cake and the most awaited chocolate. Till later.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI!!!! Birthday wishes from the east coast of the U.S. I must already be on London time because I checked in early just to see if you were ready for the celebration. I loved the fruit tray, and the help is just so, well, helpful! Well, I'm off in search of your kitty and then will be strolling the gardens. Call me before you blow out the candles on the cake, I wouldn't want to miss it.
Happy Birthday Naomi!
hugs and kisses,
Happy Happy Happy Birthday!!!
Your baby photos are adorable. I hope you are ready to enjoy the comments of all your blog buddies who have come to adore you.
Hey!! BACK OFF!!
Sorry about that... I had to yell at some guy who was hogging the shrimp cocktail.
Umm, could I get some lemon wedges?
Oh, thank you. You weren't kidding about those helpers. They are gooood!
Chocolate cake? Of course! I don't mind if I do.
Uh, could you make that piece a bit larger. Thanks.
I brought several kazoos for us to perform Happy Birthday for you. I hope you enjoy it.
My gift to you is a bottle of magic perfume.
Spray it on each morning, and it will feel like you are being hugged by all your friends in blogland.
Have a great, great birthday!!
(We're about to run out of shrimp. I think we need to send one of those helpers out to get some more. Pronto!)
Naomi!! I'm here! Happy Birthday and thanks for the invite! I have been following and have so enjoyed all your recent posts and photos! I feel like I know you like an old friend. I'll be back tomorrow for some treats!!
Wow, I am so excited to be here early!!
Happy Birthday to Naomi!(as my first present to you I will not asault your ears by acually singing that for you!)
I am all about the chocolate cake and so far the staff has been very *helpful* I am off for a stroll in your garden-hoping to see some of those humming birds that do seems to love you so. I'll be back around later.
Dear Naomi, I am here in my best "bib and tucker", to wish you a happy birthday - the best of the best. I am hosting a satellite dinner at Casa Kenju, so come on over when you can get a break, to see your cake and flowers and the well wishes.
Happy Birthday! I hope you're having a wonderful day!
What a wonderful home you have Naomi! I have been escorted in by Blair and I have some nice Champagne to sip on. Lovely party even if it is early.
"Oh make her stop!! Jamie Dawn is making those funny fish faces again! I think she's had too many shrimp or champagne or SOMETHING!!"
(Rachel laughs at Jamie Dawn's faces until her belly hurts.)
I think I'll wander over and have some fruit. The food looks lovely. I will wait until later to have some cake.
My gift to you are chocolate truffles! I do hope you will save them for later on in the week after the cake is gone and you suddenly might have a craving for chocolate. Then they will hit the spot. (Meanwhile, hide them from Jamie Dawn--she is a truffle lover and even eats them in her sleep!)
Okay, I'm going to visit George and the other plants and then see if I can find that handsome Sweetie......
Happy Birthday, dear Naomi. Your blog is incredible and so are you.
I hope your day is exceptionally happy, and that good things happen every moment of it.
I'm back again for some more food. I have been checking out all your flowers and cacti! Just lovely. Met some fellow bloggers there also. Great party so far Naomi, just great!!
I'd like to offer a toast for you; that you have many more wonderful birthdays and a wonderful year filled with many, many, many joyful moments, good health, and every happiness. Here's to you, dear Naomi.
Naomi, I always celebrate my birthday week, so I'm glad you started the party early! I hope you have a wonderful, memorable day and many, many more. The Buddhists will be praying today for your long life and excellent health!
Happy birthday, Naomi. I hope that your friends and family are all able to gather around you. In spirit I'll be there. Enjoy!
If I had your phone number I could call my brother in Germany and have him call you. He could sing a rousing (and very loud) formal rendition of Happy Birthday! All your guests would be able to hear just by holding the phone up.
A VERY, VERY, VERY Happy Birthday to you!!!!!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR NAOMI!
I wish all the happiness to you! I am here and I am so happy! From Brazil to Los Angeles! It was a long trip but finally my dream come true!

Champagne is chilled. Come see it yourself whenever you have a free second and while I am busy chatting with your charming friends! delicious food and the party staff is just marvelous! what a party :)
No problem, Naomi - the champers will help the day go more quickly - and of course, the promise of a little piece of that fantastic choccie cake :-)
gotta fly - literally!
Mar, my dear..I'm popping on over, now!
I am going to drink one more glass of champagne....no really just one-and then it is off to sleep for me.
I think I see a nice cozy looking couch right over there that looks good (see another good reason to wear pjs to the party!!)-I will return in the morning and hopefully the hummers will be friendly.
Happy Birthday dear Naomi--taking the trip through your life the past weeks makes me feel like I have known you forever.
Oh, and here is some assorted Godiva Chocolates to add to the party.
Oh Clara dear..Do bring out the Deviled Eggs...These are the BEST Deviled Eggs ever...For all of you Angelino's (That's peeps who live here in L.A. they come from one of the GREAT Deli's of Los Angeles...Greenblatts! Up on Sunset Blvd., near Crescent Heights...I've been getting goodies from Greenblatt's since 1961! Yes, they are still a family owned and run business....And EVERYTHING They have is wonderful....These Deviled Eggs are better than anything I could make myself...ENJOY!
Blair, could you bring me a Tomatoe Juice, Darling? Thanks so much....
Sending you a bright HAPPY 75TH BIRTHDAY from the "Bright Light City" as Elvis once sang!
May your special day give you many SMILES, virtual HUGS, Blessings of Love and Friendship from the world over.
Let's everyone raise a toast to our dear Naomi on this -- her Special Day!!
Just popped back before my first meeting of the day to taste those delish devilled eggs.
Walt? Do fill up my glass, dear...and how are you and Clara settling in? I hope you are both being kind to Melinda - she needs help, poor girl.....
[looks for a nice soft chair] I'll just shut my eyes while I teleport to my meetings....
Thank You Darling Randy...So glad you are On-Line now...Loved your letter about the "Phantom" Opening...
Come on back later if you can, Honey...
CQ...Oh I'm so glad you came back...Telporting is good!
Have a canape too...they are also delicious...Nova Scotia salmon is the best! And that little sprig of Dill..YUM!
Happy Birthday Naomi, kenju sent me over to wish you all the best, it's a special day for me today, my Dads birthday as well, he would be would be 95 today, he did make 90 so was a full life.
Happy Birthday, old old lady!
Your party is fabulous! I don't usually bring additional eats to such beautifully planned events, but I couldn't resist adding a virtual container of Chasen's chili to the menu after we had the real thing at a little party for you last night.
You see, I "do my wash" at an all-night laundromat a block from the ocean. It has Classic Arts Showcase on tv, so what would
be a boring wait becomes a wonderful revitalizing experience.
The construction workers from the Cheveron refinery come in regularly.They know I like Chasen's chili, which is very good, but very expensive, so they bring some for special occasions. We had a party for the Classic Arts Showcase birthday, and when I told them about your birthday coming up, they insisted we have "chili con carne and sparkling champagne" as befits a sophisticated chanteuse. Our glasses were raised again and again in toasts to you. That may be why your ears were burning last night!
I have been on one virtual shopping trip after another in an effort to select the right birthday present for you. I think I have found a couple of surprises you will enjoy. They will be sent along later.
I enjoyed the party, and will be back. Have fun !
Hello everyone! I'm not late am I?? Where's the drinks? And pass me a piece of cake please! Happy Birthday my friend!! I'm so honored to be here with you and all of your friends. Now, on with the party!
Hi Chris....Hope you are still here..I had to check on the Hot Canapes...I hope The Staff has been taking good care of you and that you've gotten everything you need....I'm going down into the Garden to check on anyone who might have decided to nap down there...LOL! Enjoy, dear Chris!
Saw the news at Jane's.
CHOCOLATE CAAAAAKKKKKKEEEEEE!!!!!! Um, I mean, Happy Birthday! Hope it's a great one and enjoy that cake. Chocolate is the only truly good flavor. Jane sent me. :-D
A little bird told me that Mar and CQ had arrived. Mar pass the champers bella !!
Well, they were here but CQ had to go to work and MAR ...well, I think she had things to do out and about...
So glad you came bsack My Dear Wendy...Want some Deviled Eggs?
Well, Darlings...It is about 3:05A.M. here in Los Angeles and I must take my "Sleep Break". I'll see you all later in the morning...! Talk and Chat and Giggle among yourselves!
Happy Birthday Sweetie!! xoxoxo
I hope you have the most wonderful birthday ever. Thanks for inviting me to your party :)
CQ has told me all about you and I have been stopping by and reading your lovely posts about your life so I just wanted to drop in and wish you a Happy Birthday from a fellow cancerian. Lovely party by the way.
Wow. It's getting crowded in here. Happy Birthday Naomi. Enjoy the day.
Hi Naomi. I wanted to wish you the happiest, healthiest birthday yet. For all the good you bring to others via your lens and your words, I hope that in the coming year - and well beyond - you receive as much goodness as you have shared with us.
You're one of the good ones, and we're thrilled to be able to celebrate with you in this unique manner.
All the best.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAOMI.....I'm here. The flight from Florida was a little delayed, but I coaxed the pilot to fly faster. I had a VERY special place I had to be in the Hills.
Oh...there's Blair and you're right...he borders on stuffy...but oh so dashing in his tux. And there's.... OPPS!...Melinda...the clumsy maid. I'm afraid she just dropped a platter of shrimp all over Sweetie. The cat's in kitty heaven now.
Wow...look at all the people that's here. So many familiar names and faces. IS that Pierce Broslan? I think it is!
And Naomi, you look stunning! As always. You're glowing with excitement and happiness...as you should be on your special day.
I need to grab that Blair for a glass of champagne....and here's my toast to you, Naomi. Wishing all for you that you wish for yourself in the coming year. Now I'm going to mingle...and when things calm down here, don't forget to visit at my place for more birthday wishes.
Sing a little song, dance a little dance and have a gloreous day!
That would be GLORIOUS!
Happy birthday to the coolest Old Old Lady of all!
Fantastic party, by the way!!!
Happy Birthday. Kenju sent me to see you. Nice joint. Happy birthday.
I made it ..
I had to come before work..
I am working the Greek today...
Well, I stand corrected! I came back to try again, and this time I got all the way down the page. Hope you are having a wonderful, fun-filled birthday, Naomi. I was there last night, but I fell asleep in the corner and missed most of the party.
Happy Birthday!!!!!I'll have a piece of cake and a big glass of wine in your honor tonight.
here via mar. Isn't she an awesome lady?
I'm still here and having so much fun at your party. The food is delicious, the champagne intoxicating and the company devine.
I've spent a lot of time cuddling and holding Sweetie, who seems to be enjoying all the festivity. And I wandered outside and finally got to meet the infamous "George"...he's everything you said he was. Off to find that clumsy Melinda...I need a refill on those deviled eggs.
Happy Birthday Naomi!!!
Have a wonderful day!! :D I came with Jane ;)
Happy Birthday! Great party and even better blog. *Must remember to thank Kenju for the invite.*
Naomi; what a nice party you are having. WOW all the food, drinks, and CAKE!!!! And such a nice group of friends! I 'popped' in from Terris site. And now that I see you are a Cat Person I am going to come back when I have time to lesurely read all about your babies! Happy Birthday and Take care
Hellloooooo! I'm here! Fashionably late, of course. Happy birthday, Naomi! *Hugs* So nice of you to invite me, now where's all that food? ha.
Happy Birthday! Thanks for the wonderful party. I really enjoyed the shrimp and champagne..This is nice. I linked to you today. I have a feeling I am going to spending a lot more time here. I came over from Kenju's place.
Hi, I'm back - you can't keep a good queen down, you know!
cyberkitten says to say hi, happy birthday and he'll be along later....
Is there any cake left? Or has Ananke eaten it all?
Clara...? Clara?? [coughs gently] sweetheart, put Walt down a minute and get me some cake and champers.
Is the Lady of the house still resting? Melinda? Have you seen Lady Naomi?
[sups delicately at champagne]
What an excellent post. And thanks for the invite.
Happy Birthday. I hear it's a significant one. Actually, I think they're all significant.
Sorry I'm late......... Time difference is a bi*ch isn't it... [grin].
Still @ work for another hour or so.. so I'm just popping in to 'show my face' for now....
Happy Birthday Naomi... MANY happy returns!
I'll be back later.....
Naomi - I know you're getting some well deserved rest so just a note as I dash off to work. Thanks for letting me stay the night as I couldn't have driven home after all that champagne! So much wonderful food and cake.
The only challenge is - well, let's just say, "Have you ever found yourself curled up next to a cactus person after a night of celebrating?" I will have a slightly different posture at my desk this morning!!!
This has been the best birthday party ever. I've met so many new special people too.
Enjoy the rest of your "Special Day" -- you will be in my thoughts.
Happy Birthday, gorgeous! I love this place...
Picklish invited me. I hope you don't mind. ;)
I needed a refill on that champagne from Blair, to go with my deviled eggs. I shared my shrimp with Sweetie, so off to find that Melinda again. Somebody needs to keep tabs on her...I thought I saw her heading outside with one of the guests.
And Lady Naomi...I hope you're resting up, because by the looks of it, this party might go on overtime.
I found your blog by way of my friend Deana at Friday Night Fish Fry. I read your blog daily, and enjoy it very, very much!
Happy birthday to you! Hope you have a fantastic day.
P.S. My birthday is Saturday :-)
Back to the party again. Happy Birthday Naomi. There is a card waiting for you at my place today. I think I'll just mingle a bit.
I wonder if anyone has sung you happy birthday in Welsh yet? *clears throat* Please feel free to join in, I'm sure you know the tune!
Penblwydd Hapus i chi

Coffe, anyone? DeCaf? Tea? There is lots of Tea...!
I am back because I love your party!! Plus it is already cocktail hour over here so I can go out to the garden to chat with your wonderful guests with a lovely glass of champagne. But first I will take a look at the delicatessen you have to offer, they are just wonderful!
I think the party needs a little Latin touch so here is happy birthday in Spanish
te deseamos todos
que los cumplas feliz
will return with the German lyrics later on, first I need a drink, my dear!
Happy Birthday Sweetheart! What a wonderful party!
I lurk often but comment rarely. I need to work on that.
Have a wonderful day and know that you are loved worldwide!
Thank you Mar...That was BEAUTIFUL! HAve a Margarita Or A Bloody Mary, my dear...
And now it's lunch time....so had to come back to savor more of the yummy food you're serving.
By the way, Naomi.....Shhhhhh! I DID see that Melinda behind the bushes with one of the guests here. (I won't say which one) So you might want to have a chat with her on her work ethics.
Hi -- just popped in for a few minutes (I'm at work right now, so can't stay long.) Everything looks delightful. I'll just have a quick mimosa (as if one really can have a quick mimosa) and be on my way. I will stop back in this evening when I get home from work.
'til later my dear.
Thanks Keb...Glad to know you lurk when you can...! (lol) Would you like a Cosmo?
BTW: I hope by reducung the number of post on my blog it will move things along...
Do let me know if you are still having problems Commenting...!
Yes, Melinda, I DO want more Hollandaise...LOL!
Is it too early for margaritas?
Oh Thanks Terri And Kathy, too...A quick Mimosa is very possible...Oh Walt? Do take care of Kathy...
So glad you came back How about some Eggs Benedict for your lunch? They are yum....And yes that Melinda is a "caution"...Well, she heard about How To Get Ahead IN Hollywood, you know? (lol)
Found you a few weeks ago, better late then never.
Just in time to wish you a very happy birthday.
I am on the wagon so I had to pass on the drinks but the shrimp and chocolate cake were delicious.
Glad I found your place.
I followed Judy Kenju's link.
Happy Happy Purrday......
The Calico Girls in the Big Piney Woods of North Idaho
To Dear Naomi: Our LADY of the Hills!
First, as I write this very special greeting, let me tell you that for some reason I keep imagining the Andrews Sisters are singing "Bei Mir Bist du Schen." Will you have the help put it on for old times' sake?
I've only known you for a few months but your writing is so intimate and warm I feel we've been friends for years! You made me laugh, made me cry (a lot!) and oh how you have inspired me.
Today I send you my very best wishes on this very significant 75th BDay. May you blog many, many more!
PS Will you have Melinda bring me one more glass of champange before I go? I'm not driving! On second thought, perhaps you should tell Blair to do it.
Happy Birthday, dear.
Happy Birthday to You, the big day has arrived! I can see it has been rather busy around here...which is great!! Everything looks lovely, I think I will 'mingle' a bit now. Hope your day is full of the best of everything!
Oh, and Naomi Dear, I'm not trying to cause problems but I didn't get any shrimp. I'm pretty sure Jamie Dawn ate it all.
Well, that's what I get for coming late. And it's not kosher anyway so it's probably just as well.
Don't forget to open your present...Well, it's just a card actually, but I've enclosed a gift certificate for hours and hours of loving thoughts and prayers for you and Sweetie. (Who also ate some of that shrimp, I'll bet!)
More love from your cyber-mishpocha,
your staff was most accomodating! mmmm, delicious stuff!!!
Happy Happy Birthday and many more!
I went awqay for just a few moments and so many people stopped in..Lucy, dear...Thank You Sooo very Much! YOU Are The Inspiration!!! And yes, I've told the Trio to play That Wonderful old number, just for you!
Picjlish, my darling...It's never to early to drink! I'll have another Tomatoe Juice, Blair...!
Mildred, ET & J..enjoy, Enjoy! Go take a look at the Garden this morning...it is beautiful today...though slightly Hunid!
And the Shrimp Tray has been replenished....Oh and Dear Dear Kitty's...there is Shrimp for you, too..It's all in Sweetie's Closet...Go say hi to him, my dears...I didn't put him in the closet BTW, it's his favorite place and he can come and go at will, of course...LOL!
Happiest of happy BDs, dear cat-lover. Sweetie around here somewhere?
Chocolate cake. Lovely impeccable taste as usual.
Beautiful looking party. What a crowd.
And, forgot the most important part ---- Happy BIrthday!
Happy birthday, dear. :-)
I came from The Complimenting Commenter to Wish you a Happy Birthday. May this be a very special day.
Happy Birthday to a fellow Californian.
I, and about 100,000 other clone troopers, will swing by later. But worry not, I'll bring a bag of chips and a can of dip.
Happy Purrthday Sweetie's Mom! We can't stay cuz it's thunderstorming but we wanted to say Happy Purrthday to youuuuuuuuuu :)
~~ Sanjee, Boni, Mini, Pepi, Gree, Mom, Grandma
happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday dear Naomi
Happy birthday to you
Sorry I am so so so late.
The Service is outstanding.
What a lovely lot of people have turned up for your festivities.
I can see the Queen and The Welsh One here....
I am off to have a look at the food. Is there any cake and Champers left? I see that a certain royal person may have had a tad ;)
Happy birthday, sweetie!
And a big kiss to you!
You are such a doll.
Wow, Naomi! What a party! So much chatter I can hardly make my way over to you and give you a (((big hug)))! I usually don't eat much at parties, but I can't pass up two things I like: food from Greenblatt's and chocolate! I even heard someone (I think le Laquet) singing Happy Birthday in Welsh. I haven't seen Sweetie yet (may be hiding?).
Naomi, may your birthday be loads of fun and happiness. Now, excuse me, I see a wonderful Margarita over there- so refreshing in this humid weather. I'd better chow down before those clone troopers show up- Thanks for the great party! :)
I see Fizz has found her way here :-) And did she say Jo was somewhere here in the throng?
Walt, honey....some champers please.
Wow, Naomi [sips champagne delicately]
so many guests! An excellent party, my dear....
[snaffles shrimp canape]
of course, the good thing about 'virtual' parties is I am not bound by my regular vegetarian diet - anything goes!
Now, let's mingle and chat...
YOu see I am never far away CQ... race you to the champers
Ah -- I'm back, now that it's lunch time. The shrimp look so mahvelous dahling! I'll just get myself a plate rimp -- and a margarita of course. Look, just over there, I see the most comfy chair. I'll just settle in and relax a bit before I have to go back to work!
The Staff are wonderful, they anticipate my every need. (Melinda is so very hospitable -- even when tipsy!)
Walt - a bottle please....on ice....
You see, Fizzy - this is one of the perks of lending Naomi my own staff :-)
So, are you enjoying your trip to Hollywood?
I swear I saw the Sheens on a fmaily day out earlier...and, of course, Jodie Foster stopped to say hello...
Sipping the last of my champagne, Naomi and just wanted to thank you so much for the invitation. I'd say it was a party to beat all parties.
My flight back to Florida awaits me....Here's a big hug to you and another pat for Sweetie. Enjoy the rest of your very special day, because you deserve it.
CQ I am not royalty and am not able to send my own staff - however I may be able to lend a few ducks to decorate the grounds with.
I am having a great time Naomi... I love you garden. I have had my photo taken standing by George.
That Melinda sure is efficient. I didn't find her clumsy at all (must have caught her at a good moment)- she anticipated I'd be needing another Margarita and brought it right over- with boysenberries, even!
Oh, I wondered where the ducks came from - they are absolutely adorable.....
[holds out champers bottle to Fizzy]
Shall we talk a gentle walk around the gardens, dear....?
I do so want to see those fabulous cacti Naomi has told us so much about..
Clara, honey.......Clara? CLARA! Honestly, that girl....
Stop taking phone numbers, dear, and save me and Lady Fizz a couple of slices of that delicious choccie cake.....
I think a stroll around the garden is just the thing on this summers evening CQ.
Thanks so much for the glass.
Do you want me to send you a few ducks for the royal gardens?
I think they would look amazing - did you ever see my arbour, it's fantastic.....
[pauses to admire view across pacific]
did you ever see anything SO fantastic?
Oh, hello Walt - what can I do for you?
Happy Birthday! I was visiting over at Craziequeens place and saw you were having a birthday party. We've never met, my name is Kelly. I hope you don't mind my stopping in on your rather large birthday party! Great party!
Wow this is one hell of a party! I love it! Happy Birthday Naomi and I am wishing you more birthdays to come and more blessings from above as well. TC and lots of love from me!
[polite royal chuckle]
it would appear Melinda has spilt a bottle of Bolly - on her last clean dress....
oh dear, I do hope she will last the night.......
No, Walt - you may not help her off with her damp clothes.....
I have never seen you arbour your majesty but of course I have heard about it.
Who is that waving maddly in the distance over by that cactus?
I'm waving from the cacti
Ah, that's young Kelly - she came here when she saw the note on the Palace front door!
Yoo hoo! Kelly! Over here, dear! We have champers!
Thank you for giving US the gift of your wonderful memories. I know you feel the warmth of love and admiration from your world of blogger fans. Today, you have been on the receiving end of over 120 bows and red roses from your devoted fans. Happy Birthday!!!
Who said that a play can have only three acts? Tomorrow is the first day of Act IV and we are waiting for the curtain to open.
hellooooo birthday girl! You joining in with the festivities?
And look - it's the delightful Laquet too.......
hehehe the Brit Girls are all here....
I believe Naomi is probably preparing for her star-studded evening tonight....
[awed whisper] you know, I hear that great star of stage and screen Betty Garrett will be here.....
Hello Jo, Fancy meeting you here.
When did you arrive?
have you seen the birthday girl yet?
[tops up Jo's glass]
[generous slug for Fizz]
[looks at remaining drop in astonishment]
Nooo, not seen her! So, Pimms or champers is it?
The Brit Girls all in teh same place at the same time ... WOW The birthday girl sure knows how to throw a party!
I did leave instruction with Walt to chill some Pimms...
Shall we have a break from champagne, girls?
[stops Clara as she's passing with a tray of canapes]
Clara, be a love and tell Walt no champagne - PIMMS!
I just can't mix my drinks! Sorry, I'll stick with the Pimms .... cucumber anyone?
[falls delicately into lounger on deck]
It's so beautiful here
so very beautiful
oooooooooo Pimms would be brilliant.
*acccepting a glass from Clara*
(Sipping rather than glugging this time (!!!)
Do you think Walt will save a piece of that chocolate cake for Jo now?
psssst! psst fizz! she's had too much to drink .... again!
What times the return trip to Blighty?
[waves half empty glass]
oh, this teleporting is fantastic - we can just *pouf* [swirls glass] and we're home, you know.....?
Oh thank you Melinda, how kind of you to bring us some sandwiches...
Is your dress dry yet? I must say, you look charming in Blair's spare suit....
I am soooo happy to be at your party!! The staff really are fabulous, darling. To have been teleported all the way from London, England to enjoy your day is the most delicious thing ever. Loving the chocolate cake. Did you make it yourself?
You are divine darling, absolutely divine.
Happy Birthday!!!! I hope your day is very special.
Thank you Naomi for a fantastic party, you are a great hostess. Unfortunately I have to return early due to a time malfunction on the teleporter. Continue to have a wonderful and hope to hear from you soon
Steps onto the teleporter and *pouf*
Oh Darling Brits..I hope you are all still here...! I have been sweeping all the little Bird Droppings up around the front door..I have a WONDERFUL Family of Morning Doves with Baby's...The Second Family to take up Rsidence? Did you see them CQ, Fizzy, Jo...? And Vicki, too. LOVELY! Oh WAlt...
Bring be a Jigger of Margarita's...LOL...Just want a sip you know...
Good morning Auntie Em I was up all night putting together this doco about your fabulous life so far.
Are there any Eggs Benedict left , you know that is what I always have for breakfast on Mothers Day and my birthday too.
I actually fired that sound man last night he was too drunk to function and I didn't want to miss anything, so meet Scott he is the new guy and he sorta promised to behave.
Oh Fizzy...Thanks so much for the Ducks! SOOOO Sorry I missed you..I sure enjoyed your conversation with CQ and Jo...Yes, I have eveything "wired" so I don't miss anything...!
Blair..Will you see to poor Melinda..."Wadrobe" has sent over another Maids Outfit...
Naomi! I wondered where you were..
And Wendy - how's the documentary going [slurps Pimms]
And who is this CHARMING man??
Wow..... SO many women in one place... I feel almost intimidated.......... [chuckle].
I finally made it back...I hope there is some cake left! :)
ah, cyberkitten, you made it....
Clara was asking after you - I think you'll find her in the kitchen......
I FINALLY found those truffles you had hidden.
I had no idea they had rum in them. I ate all fifty of them, and by the time I was finished, I was smashed.
I asked Blair and Walt to entertain me, and they proceeded to do a striptease! I was mortified, but much too drunk to stop them.
You throw the BEST parties! I hope you are feeling special today because you ARE!!
Keep enjoying your day. Tomorrow you can sleep it all off and recover from all the excitement.
I'd like to help you clean things up: If there's any leftover chocolate of any kind, please box it up and send it home with me. That way it will be out of your way. How thoughtful of me.
On your birthday I wish you much pleasure and joy;
I hope all of your wishes come true.
May each hour and minute be filled with delight,
And your birthday be perfect for you!
You share this day with my daughter, she turned 18 today! So two special gals, celebrate their days today!
Love you my friend and I'll be back later to celebrate more, we are going to celebrate Miss Priss's b-day in alittle bit with some friends at her favorite resturant! Ciao for now!
Oh, the Brit girls arrived and are drinking Primms! I just learned about this drink, I have never tried it and there is always a first time. Naomi, you look wonderful! cheers, my dear!
How kind of Jamie to offer to help clear up...
Of course, you may keep Walt and Clara a couple of extra days - just send 'em back when you're finished with them....
But can I have Walt back by Christmas [evil grin]
ck? I think Clara REALLY needs to speak to you........[points to wildly gesticulating maid]
I DID have a rather garbled message on my machine from Clara a few days ago... something about a 'Test being Positive'...?
Maybe I should congratulate her or something... Though I wasn't aware she was taking any exams or anything......
I'm sorry I got called to the telephone and had a LOVELY conversation with my dear friend Steve who lives and workd in Atlanta for AIDS Atlanta! It was soooo great to talk to him..But..I am sorry to have missed a few people..CQ Are you still here? What is it dear Clara...you seem rather Hysterical, My darling?? What??? (Using Ear Trumpet...) I cannot understand you dear Clara..CQ What is her trouble?
isn't this a FABULOUS party??
Let me get you some Pimms - it's like fruit punch - with a KICK!
ck - go and talk to the girl before she blows a gasket....
I think ck is better placed to answer your question, Naomi.....
last time I let him anywhere near any of my maids........
NAOMI..HAPPY BIRTHDAY FROM ME TO YOU!!!lol!!!!!! And stop by anytime to visit!
Oh Dear...CK...what is the story here on Clara...is she ---dare I use the word---Preggers???
And...Are you...(clears throat) well, you know...The Father???
[rolls ecstatically on the floor howling with laughter]
..and on THAT note I'm afraid I must be away to my bed - I need all the beauty sleep I can get.
Hope you had/are having a WONDERFUL birthday Naomi.
A pleasure as always...........
[blows kisses... hears Clara's footsteps... makes quick exit].
Oh you bad boy CK...For shame...LOL Just kidding....The truth is, I'm not sure Clara reakly knows who the father is...As I recall there was quite a bit of "Cavorting" shall we say, that night...Am I right CQ??? Maybe it is someone elses' "Little Stranger"..?
Do you remember that line...."We're going to have a little stranger"..or was it "There's going to BE a little stranger"...Well, in either case, Clara may be what is known in the US as a "slut!"...Do you think?
And I also must make my apologies...
Fantastic party, Naomi [hic!] I had a wonderful time [hic]
Now you Mericky people, don't make too much noise!
[slurps last of Pimms]
I'll just grab that bit of chocolate cake for the trip...
And please pass my very best regards to your 'real-life' friends who are coming to help you celebrate your birthday in style!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MY SWEET NAOMI!!
and Cyberkitty dear, I hate that you are going to leave.,..I was going to give you diections to The Vedanta Church...It is very close by here....Perhaps you could stop off there and PRAY that Clara has a DNA test! (lol)
So very glad you could come, my dear...CQ, are you still here?
Oh, by the way Naomi, that's a lovely outfit you are wearing. The food is divine! Great party!
Thank You Dear Shpgrl...Do have a Margarita, or a Glass of Chablis or Chardonney...I'm about ready for the Beluga now, aren't you?
Soon...Oh Walt? an I see you for a moment dear?
It's turned out to be a huge success! I need to run back to work- just thought I'd snag a piece of chocolate cake on my way. I'll try to stop by a bit later and see who has been by to celebrate the big day/night!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY and may you have many happy years in front of you :-)
*singing very loud*
(I sneaked in through the backdoor, I followed the smell of all the goodies that made me drool, from mar, hoping to get a piece to calm down the hungry monster - me.
Cheers for you!
I think I'll have to leave now. You had a great party. Boy! they were all here. You're very lucky to have lots and lots of friends.
Your cake is delicious. I really don't love chocolate cakes but for you....I ate them and didn't regret a single moment of it.
Have a great birthday and a wonderful cyber party--in addition to a great three dimensional party. I am off to another dimension right now--Disney World. I'm going to grab one of those bottles on the way out, because I am as of now unplugging from the network and I won't be anywhere online for at least a week. But I ain't leavin' before wishing you happy birthday. And hello to Naomi's MANY friends!
Hi Rick...WOW! Disney Stuff!!! Are yoiu going tobe in Anaheimn Rick..or Florida??
