Happiness is a cigar called Hamlet  

At approximately this time nineteen years ago, my mother and father headed out for a jolly jaunt to the cinema. The fact that my mother was having contractions and was in fact going into labour (for four hours) by midnight seemed to bother her not one whit. Then again, she is generally an unflappable person. Sort of like Dumblydorr, only less beardy.

And the name of this film?

The Gods Must Be Crazy.

Ah go on, admit it. Self-fulfilling prophecy, much?

Current Music: 'Walk Like An Eygptian,' the Bangles -- never heard it!

Muhahaha! Thank you. Oh, and my mother didn't scream once during labour.

Not once.

Oddness, is it genetic?

Will not congratulate you until it's the 14th over here, because it's bad luck. Just so you know. ;-)

But what a great story!

Also: You've never heard 'Walk like an Egyptian'????? Where have you been living? Under the proverbial rock???
:-D

Really? *is intrigued* That's unusual. At least, it is here, I mean.

All true!

No, I haven't! *grins* I have heard 'Eternal Flame'...but only because someone covered it recently. Thing is, 'Walk like an Eygptian' was Number One on April 14, 1986!

OMG! 'Unflappable' is an understatement!

Just in case you don't get my first post, nearly birthday girl: your fic will be up tomorrow, but there's James/Sirius for you tonight! On remusxsirius as well, but don't tell anyone!

Happy Birthday for tomorrow! The first of many greetings, not to mention mainstream R/S fic...

^_^xxx

She didn't scream either. At all. Dad told me. @_@

YAY I DID! *smooches endlessly onto death* I'll save my comments for there though.

Thank you, so so much. <333

Happy birthday and here's to all your wishes coming true ;)

And to that movie - is it the one with the coke bottles?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 01:30 pm (UTC)
Eh gosh, I'd better think some up! Thanks, though. xD

YES!! I asked Mum yesterday -- all about a tribe who finds a Coke bottle and it OMGBBQ changes their lives. I've never seen it. It's meant to be funny. Is it, though, siriusly?

That must be the best birthday story ever. *grin*

Happy (one day early) birthday!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 01:53 pm (UTC)
Hee! And the film featured an African tribe finding a COKE BOTTLE. Wow.

Coke was a turning point in my life, too.

THANK YOU!!

Thank you -- nice icon!
gabbysun on April 13th, 2005 01:38 pm (UTC)
Ain't the 14th over here neithah, so you're not getting a happy birthday wish from me yet either. ;D

But that's prolly the best claim to fame I've heard.

(Psst, when you become a world-famous celebrity you can use such anecdotes as these to entertain your interviewers/audiences!)
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 02:02 pm (UTC)
*pouts* Pooh.

Whee! And I could also say, 'I couldn't have got here without the support of numero uno fan, GABBY! 'cause she actually read almost everyfin I writ, right, and was nice about it and that's why I INFLICTED MY WRITING ON THE WORLD, AHAHA!'

And they will all flock to your altar and give me a pretty white jacket with long sleeves. *winks*

Happy (early) Birthday!

Hehehe, that's a funny story. When my mom was in labour with me, my dad ate Kentury Fried Chicken while he was driving to the hospital. Parents can do some stupid stuff when having kids.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 02:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Like my mum not screaming! Perhaps chicken is a calmant, though! (Is that a word?)

every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 02:22 pm (UTC)
Ha fecking ha
That would be her opinion too, are you like pyschic twins or something?!

That's not lyrical, that's ... yuck.

MUCHO GRACIAS! You are beautiful in all the facets of lj.

so what, it's your birthday soon? key. I should probably start writing you a birthday present or something, but I never finish anything these days. And I refuse to let anyone I know see anything I write, so yep. I'll think of something. maybe I'll rec you something. aaanyway... your parents are crazy, altho you probably worked that one out on your own. Dumblydorrr would be a cool uncle, but as a parent, maybe a little too enigmatic and, yep, beardy. but hey, rock on craziness.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 14th, 2005 02:45 pm (UTC)
Hey, you did write me something -- a post! That made me feel vair speshul, trust me. xD

I don't really trust beardy parents, particularly of the female variety.
Kat: R/S - hullo moony pupskyasuriin on April 14th, 2005 04:40 pm (UTC)

i somehow missed your birthday, darling. and yet I remember reading this post.. I must not have equated labour with birthdays. much apologies.

I hope it was loverly and filled with fic & fun & other things that start with f and sort of maybe look like your background *blushes* in any case, hope it was swell :) *HUGS*
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on April 15th, 2005 04:15 am (UTC)
Oh, you didn't miss it -- your post is dated the 14th and that's my birthday! *glomps*

It did have a lot of fic, which made me CAPSLOCK HAPPY (not Harry, though...). Sadly, the background was where its at as far as that was concerned...:)
