Happy Birthday, Blog






At 5.16pm today this blog will be a year old.
Thank you, thank you, yes, I know, I've been great, oh you shouldn't have, no, no please, no more, oh, wow, solid gold...
I shall be unable to attend the surprise party you have organised as Jeff has pulled some strings at the Vatican and we're going to have a bit of a 'do' in St Peter's. All the people I have befriended from my year of blogging will be there - Amanda, Yvette, Joey, the worst football team in the world, Ed, Liverpool, Gordon, Paris, Keanu, Watt (What?), Donald, Naomi, Guidale, Pasty, Cannes, Polly and many more. It is knowing how pleased they will be to see me that makes today so special.
As Blake would have written, had he had the technology,
'Blog on, blog on, Voltaire, Rousseau:
Blog on, blog on: 'tis all in vain!
You throw the sand against the wind,
And the wind blows it back again.'

  2. Well when in Rome......and a happy Blog B-Day to you.
    I wonder if Jeff's statuary will be safe whilst he feeds pigeons in the square?

  4. Congratulations. You've stuck it out far longer than 99.9% of blogs.

    I think you have it just right, so I hope TE will see many more birthdays.

  7. Happy Birthday blog and Bryan. I'm a little disappointed my party will go to waste; there were party hats and balloons and even a bouncy castle in the back garden.

  8. Congratulations and best wishes for the day from one lurker and, I'm sure, the many thousands of silent Chinese lurkers. You should not forget to save them a slice of the cake.

  10. Well, I make that 5:16pm Bryan, so congratulations on taking your blog on a complete orbit around a G-type star. Keep up the good work!

  11. Fear not, Gordon, I am ever on the alert for the G-spot, sorry, star.

  12. Bryan. Certainly I have enjoyed your many kind references to my status as an internationally acclaimed author but I must confess to some puzzlement. My Kurdish diary secretary - you have to help, don't you? - has no recollection of our date at the Vatican. In honour of a mind of some considerable originality, and as a tribute to a man who attracts lady fans from the States, I am happy however to suggest we have a good lunch which given our mutual interests I imagine will last for many enjoyable hours. It would be a partiuclar delight to share my intimate recollections of the G-spot with you. Man to man, as 'twere.

  13. Congratulations, Bryan. This calls for a toast. Where did you hide the liquor? We want the good stuff, Bryan, not the swill that Jeff and Amanda have been downing while passing through.

  14. I hope it's not amiss o mention it here, Bryan, but your birthday post has brought to mind that your yearly subscription fees to Comrade and Home are due. We're including a favourite Communist holiday destinations supplement next month so don't delay.

  15. Congratulations. I hadn't thought about it but Monday is my 3rd blogiversary (what a stupid word).

  16. Well done Bryan, this is a great blog place to visit. Keep up the variety and humour.

  17. For the reference to the Geeky Space Ships alone, thank you. It is quite an amazing thing to keep a blog functioning for a year. It is not like either kinds of writing, when you only have to be held to account for the final product. With this, it is every day. Congratulations.

  19. "Happy Birthday to You", also known more simply as "Happy Birthday",is a traditional song that is sung to celebrate the anniversary of a person's birth. According to the 1998 Guinness Book of World Records, "Happy Birthday to You" is the most well recognized song in the English language, followed by "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and "Auld Lang Syne".
