As one of the most technically challlenged members of Bettermost, it gives me great pleasure to wish a most HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most technically proficient of all. May the 43rd annual observance of your nativity be a meaningful and fulfilling one, John Passaniti.

Happy Birthday, John!

One of your favorite songs...the dainty and romantic,
"Skullcrusher Mountain"
by Jonathan Coulton


[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJNSC3k5Nwg[/youtube]

Posted by Jonathan Coulton a couple of days ago on his website:
Robert Redford Is Not a Native Speaker of English
I am not making this up. Here is what it says on page one of the Sundance Christmas catalog (I mean “Holiday Catalog”). This is supposedly a message straight from Robert Redford. And I quote:

“Holidays again. Forgive me while I dodge the rumble of the million footed throngs that have succumbed to the marketing ether for Christmas and its days.

Holiday. Can we, without disappointing the children and others who long for the surprise of gift giving, just look to a different value to digest, wherever you are? Those details that are natural and sometimes hidden? That have a satisfying and long lasting lifespan? Things that you miss when you’re away? That when someone might remind you, you say, oh yes, how wonderful. And of course the most vivid of details: loved ones who are there in body and spirit.

Happy holidays from all of us at Sundance.”

Wait, what? It’s like he snorted a bunch of pulped Christmas cards and fragments of them shot up into his brain, and then he got really high, punched an intern in the face, and dictated this - IN CHINESE. Seriously, what happened here? $100 to the first person who can explain this to me.

Thanks everyone for the happy birthday posts.

Some of you may have heard me joke in the past that to me, BetterMost is little more than a random pattern of bits, spinning on a hard drive at 5400 RPMs.

It's of course not true-- the hard drive actually spins at 7200 RPMs.  ;D 

Just kidding!  Thanks again!

Thanks everyone for the happy birthday posts.

Some of you may have heard me joke in the past that to me, BetterMost is little more than a random pattern of bits, spinning on a hard drive at 5400 RPMs.

It's of course not true-- the hard drive actually spins at 7200 RPMs.  ;D 

Just kidding!  Thanks again!



You wacky, wacky Birthday Boy.  :)

Thank you from Member #129.

Happy belated birthday-anniversary greetings, John! (As usual, I'm arriving late to a BD thread). Thank you so very much for all you have done and continue to do to make this wonderful site a reality.

happy birthday ! ya i know im late so  :P
Sometimes it all still feels like a mass of dots               
but
more and more these days
I feel like we're all connected
and it's beautiful   
and funny
and good.

Funny (maybe) little story that goes along with the youtube video that Meryl posted on page 1.

Naturally, with the introduction she gave it I had to see what the video was and hear the song, so I had a look. Turns out I've watched it about 20 times now because I love the song and because the video made me so lonesome for my son, who moved out of our house in April, that I cried!

I forwarded it all to my son who informed me that the reason it looked so familiar to me was that the video is from the massive role playing game World of Warcraft, a game that my son spent many hours playing. (I'd say "wasted" but since BBM, who am I to judge?) Anyway, it is also where he met his fiance and where I first "met" her.

They were part of a group who were going off to kill a dragon and I happened to be up in his room, so he turned on the speakers so that I could hear all the strategizing that was going on and I suddenly heard a female voice yell "Die, bitch!" (It was a female dragon.) He finally admitted to me that she was the person he had been going to visit down in Boston but he wouldn't tell me her name for a long time (don't ask) so I called her diebitch until she finally showed up at my door one day and we were properly introduced.

So, thanks John and Meryl. Maybe they'll play it at the wedding.

Hee, Lauren, I love that you called your future daughter-in-law "diebitch" before you even met her.  ;D

You have Ellemeno to thank for the video, though, since I remain innocent of the know-how needed to embed YouTube stuff.  I listened to it, though.  It's cute!  ;D

I will just echo the sentiments here. I know not only late but pinch someone elses greeting. I seem to be late for everything these days.Birthday wishes, Chuck's parties, etc

I hope your birthday was special in what ever way you desired.

P.S it's me that's "mad" not you. It has just been pointed out I am not late as I was on last years B'day thread. Oh dear, it's that Monday morning thing !

Some of you may have heard me joke in the past that to me, BetterMost is little more than a random pattern of bits, spinning on a hard drive at 5400 RPMs.

It's of course not true-- the hard drive actually spins at 7200 RPMs.  ;D 

Just kidding!  Thanks again!


Keep on spinning!
