HAPPY (EARLY) BIRTHDAY!!!

We're all just flexing our whiskey-toasting muscles and gearing up for festivities yet to come on Monday.  See, we've even begun setting the party table with the good whiskey glasses and decanter!

Happy Birthday to our High Priestess

I searched for something fitting for the birthday of a Brokeback Mountain priestess. And look what I've found: a torte with beans! Okay, it's only chocolate beans, but I thought it'd taste better this way  ;)

(http://www.kueche-co.de/pic/1082A1030A2_260x260.png)

And Weinbrandbohnen =Brandy Beans (=Chocolate filled with brandy)

(http://www.pixelquelle.de/data/media/15/Weinbrandbohnen.jpg)

And if you can stomach some more sweets, here's jelly beans

(http://www.bbc.co.uk/consumer/images/300/jellybeans.jpg)

After all these sweet beans you will definitely need something to clean your stomach

Cheers

Have a wonderful birthday and many more to come!

Well, we started to celebrate five days early, and here I am one day late!! I said to myself, naw, I want to wait till it's closer to her birthday to post on the thread, and the dadgum thing done came and went! I'm so sorry I missed the actual day and chat (especially since you did me the honor of organizing mine!), AND I hope you keep on celebrating!

You're one of the biggest hearted and most loyal Brokies I know, and I'm glad to share the same city with you, High Priestess Meryl!

Happiest Birthday Wishes for the coming year, and may your deepest dreams come true.

Love,
Jenny

So Owl wrote...and this is what he wrote:

HIPY PAPY BTHUTHDTH THUTHDA BTHUTHDY.

Pooh looked on admiringly.

"I'm just saying 'A Happy Birthday,'" said Owl carelessly.

"It's a nice long one," said Pooh, very much impressed by it.

"Well, actually, of course, I'm saying 'A Very Happy Birthday with love from Pooh.'  Naturally it takes a great deal of pencil to say a long thing like that."

"Oh, I see," said Pooh.

22 months ago: Male prostitutes stand for the first time behind a window, 31 March 2007 during the
Amsterdam Wallen public day, the Red Lights district. Men swapped places with women offering themselves
for hire in the shop windows of Amsterdam's infamous red light district 31 March in an audacious bid
to improve the area's seedy image.

And as I make my way thru the haze to the coffee pot, the public radio station is playing a guitar version of the music playing on the TV when Monroe and the girls sat down to watch ice skating. How weird is that.

I'll call you later, after the coffee takes hold.

You all, I was just floored today when an incredible bouquet of flowers arrived at my door accompanied by a beautiful handwritten note!  It says "Dearest Meryl, from all (and I do mean ALL) your BetterMost Brokie friends!  We love ya ta bits!"  Whoever the talented writer is sketched a spoon-ready can of BetterMost beans and a cowboy hat, too!  ;D

The flowers are just GORGEOUS!  Roses and lilies and crocuses and sweet peas, all in shades of gold and lavender (or is it tan and blue?), with a wide satin lavender ribbon.  WOW!  I can't get over how sweet you all are to organize this for me.  It makes me cry to write this.  If there was any pain for me in having to turn 60 today, you just completely dispelled it!  :-*  :-*  :-*

On top of all the colorful posts of sheep and cymbal-crashing monks and High Priestesses and Heaths and amazing cakes, turkeys, berets, puppies, prostitutes, Scrabble games, dancin,' flowers, weird videos, kettle drums, booze, Big Apples and all, this is the fluffiest and most irresistible of icing!  8)  8)  8)

Heya Meryl!  It's so great to hear the flowers arrived! And, it's great to hear that they look nice.  The gold and lavendar might also be thought of as tan and blue for our Ennis and Jack.

It was truly a group effort.  Our wonderful John gets the credit as our foot soldier on the ground and fabulous artist.

John, that's brilliant that you posted "16 Candles."  Just reverse that number, and you've got it right!  ;D

Kerry, something tells me that pavlova is a lot more pleasant to consume than Vegemite, but I'll happily take the title of Honorary Aussie!  8)

Thanks so much, Kelda, Sonja, Paul (was that the restaurant where we saw Sebastian Junger?), Fran, Gil, Chrissie (loved that show, and yes, Alaska is full of people just like that!), Marie, Sandy, Katherine (I waved to you as I flew over Minnesota), Sophia, Roux, Berit, Fritz, Chuck (great pic!), Lee, John (love the kitty Macbeths and the moose man!), and Truman (didn't get to see many mountains due to clouds, but of course I thought of Brokeback).  You all rock!  :-*

What I don't get is why your job is done after opening night?
Are there no more rehearsals/analysing/debriefing after it premiered? Or do you pass on the job to someone else?

After the show opens, there are no rehearsals, unless, God forbid, an understudy has to go on.  In that case the Production Stage Manager, who runs the show from backstage, takes over.  I emailed her my notes from opening night (they're performing the second show as I write this), so I trust she took care of them.  My work--the concept, staging and execution-- is essentially done once the show is up.  8)

To Chrissi, Chuck, Lee, Jeff, Fran, Paul (love that pic!), Monika, Sonja, Gil, Marie and Kelda, THANK YOU for the lovely birthday greetings!!  This is coming belatedly, as this last week has been a marathon of tech rehearsals for our opening of Britten's "The Turn of the Screw" at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and sleep became all-important to survive.  But we open tomorrow, and at last I have a night off.

Though my birthday had rehearsals from morning til night, I managed a really nice birthday dinner just across the street from the theater at a German restaurant called Berlyn: scrumptious vegetable strudel, a glass of perfect Riesling and chocolate almond cake with ice cream did the trick!  :D

Had to search for this photo as I did not take my own that night and if I did copy it to my laptop, it would have gone in the great hard drive crash of December 2012. Fortunately I had backups for that trip but sadly not for the Portugal/Spain/Ireland trip of 2011.
I laughed as I was wearing my favourite shirt (naturally for such an important occasion) but I am just washing it now as it is sadly just a gardening shirt these days

Yes, Jeff, the Women's Store is on the Southwest corner of 58th and Fifth (looking South, on the right)
and the Men's Store is on the Southeast corner of 58th and Fifth (looking South, on the left)

(http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j174/jmmgallagher/BERGDORFSMENNORTH2_zps5tkwl2dp.gif)


The front of the Men's store is right across the street from the Main (Women's) store--

I already wished you happy birthday on Facebook and it was kind of stilted because it was all I could do to keep from calling you Meryl or dropping in a Brokieism! So whew -- happy birthday, High Priestess, in the privacy of Brokieland!
