    Happy Birthday to Me - updated

    You should have seen me in an enormous Mexican hat with an ice cream dessert in front of me, skinny single candle sticking out of it, and serenaded by a very loud band of Latin singers.... THANK YOU Midget! I'll get you for it, you just wait!!


    I can't believe I didn't get any scrunchies! And just to think that 3 (that's THREE) people promised that they would get me some. This is simply unacceptable :P :P

    Instead I got a whopping 2 items out of the suggested gift list! Namely, a dinner at the Diplomatic Club (thanks!!) and a funky Bluetooth headset thingy - it rocks, thank you!

    I did NOT get a diamond incrusted mobile (tsk tsk tsk), and I didn't get a trip anywhere. I did however get a goodie bag from Lush - now the whole upper floor of my villa smells like strawberries, yum!

      that was at the tex-mex in the marriot right? i always feel so sorry for the hapless victims. i was there last week and one guy was sitting there happily joking with his friends (though i question their friendship) when all of a sudden i could see all the staff huddled in a corner trying to light a tiny candle on some muffin. The strained twangs of "happy birthday" signalled the assault. The attack party was led by a sombrero wielding thug (which i ascertained was the ringleader). The poor guy didnt stand a chance. I think his only wish was that when that sombrero was finally lifted up, he would have disappeared.

      I have made pact with myself that in the event i am stupid enough to accept a birthday dinner invitation to a tex mex restaurant (i think that it is an international law that only tex-mex eateries are allowed to perform this ritual) that as soon as i see them approaching, i will use my cutlery to the death. i am lethal with a spoon.

      actually, im like the queen, i have two (birthdays that is... mmmn... maybe the queen also has two. it would certainly explain the funny walk... i digress)... needless to say.. i am a leo (roar and beat chest... not that lions beat their chests or anything... gotta stop babbling). August. Last week actually. and none of you remembered :'(. Ok.. so i didnt tell you but thats no excuse.

      Things i can do with a spoon? too many to mention. Give me some industrial grease, a rubber glove and swiss army knife too and the possibilities are endless.

      Happy Birthday Cat!

      Tex-Mex was my guess too- I did my birthday there once.. 17th, I think... I got attacked by the same mob.. And one of them.. I think his name was Pedro or something, served me a "Ferrari".. what a drink!

      It sounds like you had fun.. I'm glad!

      Giasi - yes indeed it was in Marriott. And it was my idea, I can't believe I haven't thought about the hat beforehand!

      Don Veto,

      Sever - luchshiy moy podarochek eto ty! :P

      well since you're all in the business of embarassing one-another..how about you get me a male stripper for my birthday? yes that would really humiliate me!

      excellent. happy belated birthday.

      i bet u had a great time. its those birthdays that really stick to ur memory. i remember my birthday last year when everywhere i went i was serenaded with singing staff. and trust me my friends took me EVERYWHERE in town over the space of three days. and people kept singing.

      the fourth day, i was walking to my car and some random guys screamed out "happy birthday" from a moving car.

      i think the whole of Muscat knew it was my birthday. LOL. still that birthday really stuck to my memory

      Sounds fun. Hope you had a good day!

    • At 05/09/2006, 10:26, Blogger Qatar Cat said…

      Thanks so much everyone! It's nice to be loved :P

      Fish - male stripper? I'll rent a bunch of dolphins for you, lol.

      Kaza - you can't miss me, because I am here and it's YOU who's gone missing!!

      3anooda - I wish I celebrated my birthday in Muscat as well, you know..

      And now I will update the post with the list of gifts I have received :P
