  1. Happy Birthday Badass Reb!

    Seeing as how it’s (apparently) your special day I guess it would be bad form for me to start musing about how many years young you are.

    Take it easy dude, hope you have a great day.

  2. How about we slice him in two and count his rings?

    Just keeping to the theme of Plastic People.

  3. But wait a minute… isn’t it also Barbie’s 50th today?

  4. Happy birthday reb. The courier has just picked up the bottle of Coriole. Let me know if it doesn’t arrive.

    Good to see Tboss back. I missed you.

  5. “How about we slice him in two and count his rings?”

    lol, an innovative plan.

    Would that make him “1” then?

  6. G’mornin’ miglo. Been busy but still reading a bit when able.
    Good to see Elise & RN around the traps + newcomers.

    Bedtime now after NS. Later peoples.

  7. Happy Birthday, sreb!

    You share the day with another special person – my third grandson, who turns 11!

    Just promise us that you’ll imbibe judiciously today.

    I address you as sreb (as opposed to reb) for a very good reason!

    Have a fabulous day, ol’ mate!

  8. Have a haffy (hic) birf (hic) day (hic) and besthst (hic) withes for (hic) …

  9. Happy Birthday, Reb!

    Come 5pm, I’ll drink a toast to you.

    Cheers and have a good one.

  12. Have a great day Reb.

    I’m really touched (sincerely)…


  15. Happy Birthday gentleman reb!

    Pisces Horoscope

    …Pisceans have a mysterious and magnetic quality to them. Sex is an emotional matter to them. They make wonderfully sensual and creative lovers. They are totally uninhibited with an almost insatiable appetite for sex and give free rein to their erotic fantasies.
    Negative Traits
    Their negatives are that they are tend to be extremely emotional at times which can work against them. Sometimes Pisceans turn alcoholics trying to escape from the harsh realities of life. They can also be procrastinators and are pretty pessimistic. Guilt, worry and delusions can frequently disturb them.

    Health Aspects of Pisces
    Pisces rules the feet, liver and lymphatics. This makes Pisceans folks susceptible to anaemia, boils, ulcers and other skin diseases, foot disorders and lameness…

  16. Happy Birthday, reb. Try not to give yourself too much bottle ‘flu-save it for Friday.

    A birthday wish just for you. May there be many able-bodied gardeners ready to obey your every command….draws veil & exits stage left.

    Have a good one, reb!!!

  17. Good heavens KittyLitter…

    That horoscope is a bit too accurate for my liking.

    In other words, I can be a top shag when I’m not pissed or deluded…

    And thanks Jane also…

    “able-bodied gardeners”. Now there’s a thought…

  18. hehe, a top shag who knows his shop tags!

  19. Was trying to find something witty to say for the Most Gorgeous Reb’s birthday..Then came across:

    Am hoping that you haven’t been a gentleman and did indeed rise or rose or wuz risen prior to noon.

    Love and hugs MinXXX

    Brilliant’s worth repeating and with cherries on top.

  21. Happy Birthday to you reb!

    Here’s to your Wit, Wisdom, and Wonderfulness!!

  22. KL:

    “a top shag who knows his shop tags!”

    Brilliant!! If only I was better at the former than the latter…

    And thanks Elise…I’m sure I speak for a lot us when I say that we’re glad that you have joined us here…

    I missed you from Tim’s site…


  23. And thanks Min too!


  24. I missed you too!

    I missed the whole feeling of sharing ideas, jokes and stories with fellow Blogocrats.

    It’s a great concept, and no small thanks to Tim for creating and nurturing the concept, together with all you wonderful people who have kept it going!

    Onwards and upwards, as they say! πŸ˜‰

    Yeh, I know, it’s another dreaded expression – but, but, but, its one of my top favourites at the moment. Please forgive this weakness?

  25. Miglo,

    The Coriole hasn’t arrived yet…….

  26. Reb, I’ll send another bottle, but this time I’ll provide you with a delivery number and the name of the courier company so that we can follow it up.

  27. Excellent, thank you Migs…


  28. Now, reb, not too much Coriole, remember those gardeners awaiting your attention! Mind you they make a pretty good drop-it used to be a favourite tipple of mine before I left the smoke for obscurity and crayfish.

  29. Has the party started yet?

    sreb, on behalf of all Blogocrats…”clink”…and a very happy birthday! πŸ˜€

    OK…Blogocrats – all together now – one, two, three…

    HIP HIP – HOORAY! πŸ˜†


    Now as a special treat ’cause its your birthday

    This is just for you: πŸ˜‰

    Don’t spend too much…


  30. TB,

    Thank you, that’s very kind..

    I really enjoyed browsing the Lowes online catalogue. So much to choose from, so little time.


    You’ll be pleased to know the Coriloe arrived. The courier left it at my local bottle shop to collect.

    Just popped the cork (or unscrewed the cap to be precise).

    It’s a touch on the dry side. Does it need to breathe a little..

    The other arf’s making me a nice chicken curry with coconut rice for dinner. To be followed by homemade macadamia nut icecream with hazlenut praeline and lashings of baileys…

    no chamomile tea for me tonite!!


  31. It’s a touch on the dry side. Does it need to breathe a little..

    No, mate, that’s probably you… πŸ˜†

    D’ja ‘av a good one? Day that is… “clink”

  32. Very pleasant TB.

    Although I was at work. But one should be grateful for having a job in this day n age I suppose.

    oh, oh and *clink*

  33. Oh looky, Lowes have washable suits. (The cut isn’t the best, but think of the savings on dry-cleaning.) πŸ˜‰

  34. For you reb after you’ve taken your wee rabbit-faced pills:

    The Sugarcubes – Birthday

    It’s sung totally in Icelandic…


    Have a goodie.


  35. The link helps.

  36. That’s what I was thinking Tony.

    Wash n wear suits.

    You could walk to work in them dripping wet and arrive as clean as a whistle…

  37. Hey Nasking, I’d never heard of the Sugarcubes, but as soon as I listened that song, I knew who the singer was. Interesting to see how she started off.

  38. “Interesting to see how she started off.”

    Tony, Bjork was in various punk, jazz-fusion, gotic-type outfits even before the Sugarcubes.

    Two Sugarcubes LPs worth checking out:

    (1988) Life’s Too Good
    (1989) Here Today, Tomorrow, Next Week!

    Interestingly, regarding the latter LP:
    The name of the album was inspired by Mr. Toad from the famous children’s book by Kenneth Grahame The Wind in the Willows.
    (Wiki pedia)

    I’ve just downloaded from Emusic the motion picture soundtrack for ‘Screaming Masterpiece’ on Iceland’s ‘One Little Indian’ label…has Bjork, Sigur Ros, Mum & plenty of other Icelandic artists on it.

    Hope you enjoyed the song reb. My wife says happy birthday too.

  39. Reb, I’m guessing you’ve picked a recent vintage, unlike the 2002 I sent you. Instead of letting it breathe you should have decantered it instead.

    Have you no class!

  40. Just testing to see whether I’m still awaiting moderation from this one.

  41. Migs it was 2006.

    The second glass was better than the first!


  42. WTF! You drank a 2006 vintage in 2009?

    Bitch slap.

  43. OOOO – can I join in?


  44. Miglo, on March 10th, 2009 at 9:27 pm

    Miglo, Miglo I would have bet good money you could spell – decanted (decantered sounds like slowing down a horse!) 😯

  45. Look. It cost $30!!

    That’s big money for a bottle of red in the reb household.

    It’s all very well for you public servants who no doubt have wine cellars and the like and cigar humidors.

    Meanwhile, we (the royal we) who have to work for a living in the private sector have to scrape by on $15 bottles..

    BITCH SLAP back.

    And that includes you too joni!

  46. And I did decant it – directly from the bottle into my throat!

  47. $15! !!!!!!!!!

    I buy $5 Inheritance reds!

  48. TB, I may not be able to spell, but at least I don’t gulp wine like reb does. We public servants wriggle the glass, stick in our noses, take a sip and then wash the wine around the mouth.

    Then we gulp it.

  49. Migs

    You forgot to hold the glass up to examine the colour.

    I can be sofistikated too y’know.

    And then you stick your nose in?

    Typical public servant. Always got their nose in the trough!

  50. Reb, can you honestly imagine me doing any of that? At a restaurant, when the waiter pours a small glass for testing, I gulp the whole lot down, say “Damn fine – fill her up”.

  51. Migs,

    Yeah me too. I’ve dispensed with this whole “tasting” rigmarole, especially now that wine mostly comes in screw caps…

  52. Reb,
    Like Miglo i sent a Ferrari in the mail, hope the drivers seat fits you well or did it get lost in the post.
    Another year and another excuse to say your wiser.
    Cheers Reb, im having a few for you as i have no other excuse to drink.

    Happy Birthday Reb.
