fat, forty and maaaad!

hi there

well, if you can spot where the title of this post comes from, well done to you! for those of you wanting a clue, it's from a live album that was recorded in 1996, perhaps only released in 1997. best of luck!

with all the excitement and celebration of today being the The King, Elvis Presley karate-chopping someone's lights out i seem to have forgotten that today is also my birthday. go figure!

fortunately the kind people at verk did not forget at all, and we've had some celebrations here which have been generous and kind. of the exceptionally generous and very kind, my dear friend Ronel arranged this sensational, fabulous cake for me!

it is a beauty, is it not? smart to show off what i have a good name and reputation for! i can assure you that it tastes as good as it looks when consumed as a cake, lighting it and inhaling has proved to be rather difficult so far!

my regular personal photographer, Trigger, is presently away bothering sailors or something. whereas the above was taken with my somewhat wanting blueberry phone thing, the below pic was very kindly taken by Thabiso with one of them "Tab" or "Tablet" thingies.

i have been fortunate enough to get some brilliant gifts (will try and post pics later) and indeed a large number of messages of congratulations and good wishes. many thanks to all for that!

more on the day and the celebration shenanigans later!

a very big thank you to all at verk who have made this birthday on a Monday as brilliant as it could be!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
