Time and Eternity

Gahhhhhhhhhh! We all thought the Herrang pick-up was at 9am and it’s actually 11am. Ug. Guh.

So now that I am up…. again (bemused and dismayed), here’s is what’s keeping me busy:

Wired Magazine – 10 Gadgets We’d like to get rid of

Wired Magazine –100 Things your kids may not know about Reading through this list is very interesting. Some things I don’t quite know about, and some things I’ve already seen go out of use. See what you think? Is there anything you’d add?

Time Magazine – Legalizing Marijuana in CA I think they should legalize marijuana. It is expensive to the tax payers to keep people in jail so having people in for something as small as possession or for smoking is silly. If cigarettes and other tobacco products are legals the pot should be too. Perhaps driving under the influence restrictions can be placed on smoking pot….

Time Magazine – Cigarettes in Africa – I like the idea that only about 20% of American’s smoke, but it’s scary to think how many countries are lighting up and how young some of the kids are.

All the while I am reading, Flight of the Conchords are playing in the background. Here’s a visual preview of them being glorious:

Hmm…..is this what I would do with eternity? Assuming I had internet access while living out eternity, is this a preview of what I’d do? What would you do with eternity and an internet connection?

Happy Birthday Sharon!

What a fun Birthday Day Ms. Sharon Davis just had. Well (smirk), at least according to my standards.

Last night around 3am we celebrated Shaz by indulging in brownies and ice cream. Kev bought a round of treats for us all and then we sang Happy Birthday. As we continued to eat, in good ol’ Herrang fashion, foreigners continued to walk by the Blue Moon Cafe and then it dawned on the group of us to get them to sing. Slowly but surely, Sharon was serenaded multiple times, by multiple people, in multiple languages. Here’s the list of what came by:

Catalan
Castillian
PortugueseParabéns a você,
Italian – buon compleanno
French – Joyeux anniversaire !
German – Alles gute zum Geburtstag!
Finnish – Hyvää syntymäpäivää
Norwegian – Gratulerer med dagen!
DanishTillykke med fødselsdagen
Swedish – Grattis på födelsdagen !
Hebrew – ום הולדת שמח “Yom Huledet Sameakh”
Ukrainian – Многая Літа Олек! (Mno-haja Leeta Oh-lek)
Russian – С днём рождения! S dnyem rojdeniya!
Lithuanian – su gimtadieniu Su gimimo diena
Hungarian -boldog születésnapot
Irish – Breithlá shona duit
Pig Lain
Mime – this was acted out silently, but with much enthusiasm

Hopefully I’ve have found the correct translations and have linked to to appropriate songs. If you know of a better video clip of someone singing “happy birthday” in whatever language, please send it to me.

Happy Birthday Shaz!! Enjoy your mustache, your jewels, the cake and banana bread!!! xoxoxo
