Happy Birthday Sis!

My sister is ten years younger than me. I remember hearing her first words, seeing her first steps and now she is a married woman.

Unfortunately I don't have any baby photos of her. She is lucky the movers have come already. I found some letters she wrote to me when I went away to college. She was eight. They were classic! I liked her drawings (she would always find the time add a picture to her letters). I would have asked my former co-worker to scan one of the letters.

She lives on the east coast but we talk every single day, even if it's only for a second. Once I move to Rome I will miss those daily conversations.

I was thinking, what would my sister like to see on her big day? This cover came to mind. ha

HELL YEAH! That's the kind of birthday present I'm talkin about!

Thanks sis. I would have flown out to LA and hurt you if you posted one of my letters. :)

That may be the best pic of Clive I've ever seen. And Happy B'day, Gibber!

BTW... you guys should get Skype, and then you can still talk for free every day. I use it with my exchange kids and others. Just e-mail me, if you want more info, but basically, you just go to www.skype.com and sign up.

Umm, I may have to stop everything and have a cold shower now. Too bad I'm in the office. What a hot picture!! God, his eyes are gorgeous! And now that I'm all hot and bothered how am I supposed to get back to my boring translation??? Thanks Raga! And happy b-day to little sis!!

age and grey is very becoming on him :)

So where did your last post go? I saw it for a couple seconds :(

Also, isn't it so sad about Corrine's husband? Strange you had her song on Friday...and btw, that song reminds me of spring too.

Happy Birthday to your sis and Skype is definitely the way to go. Definitely.

Gosh, the movers took all your stuff already? Whew! You are on the final countdown!

gibber - ha! happy birthday.

jen - Yes I we do have skype. I just have to remember how to use it.

claudia - It's crazy to have three birthdays in one week. The next big month in our family is August, my mom's birthday, parents anniversary and my birthday.

linda - I am so sorry to distract you from your work. :)

glamah16 - clive is hella sexy.

erin - I couldn't get the darn photo right. Yes, It's very sad about Corinne's husband. Last I heard they were still trying to figure out how he died.

ms. violette - I like your response. Short and sweet. ha.

bigcnyc - I agree. I had dinner with him last year and thought I was going to die.

los angelista - thanks. Yes, the big day is this Monday very early.

Groan... He is too, too hot. I've never seen him groomed quite like that before.
