Happy Birthday To Me... And To You! [Apr. 16th, 2006|07:35 pm]

Much appreciation to Angela, Zippy, Neha, Natasha, and Jennifer for making our birthday party fun!


Zippy is becoming my favorite drinking pal in Dubai.


Jennifer - "more a rockstar today than a flower," or whatever I kept saying about her.


Neha doesn't look that outrageous, but she's from L.A., so that should have tipped us off.


Zippy got bored with karaoke early, whereas Natasha sang until 10:00 a.m.


Most of the pictures I took were like this, only blurrier.


The last non-blurry picture. I blame Stacy for sending us that drinking game.


The next morning, Natasha cooked, ate, and enjoyed lamb - then asked us for the recipe - before knowing it was lamb! HA! And Don's wearing a dress, see?

How come nobody took pictures of Angela or me? We were looking hot!

How does that Wikipedia meme go? Three births, three deaths, and three events, or something like that? I was saving it for my birthday, and now I'm late...

Historical Happenings of April 15th:

Births:
1452: Leonardo da Vinci
1843: Henry James
1933: Elizabeth Montgomery
1955: Dodi Al-Fayed
1959: Emma Thompson
1965: Linda Perry
1966: Samantha Fox

Deaths:
1980: Jean-Paul Sartre
1998: Pol Pot (Cambodian dictator)
1990: Greta Garbo and Ava Gardner
2001: Joey Ramone

Events:
1865: Abraham Lincoln dies after being shot by John Wilkes Booth.
1912: The Titanic sinks a few hours after striking an iceburg.
1943: An Allied bomber attack accidentally hits the Belgian town of Mortsel, leaving 936 civilians dead.
1986: The United States launch Operation El Dorado Canyon against Libya.
1989: A human stampede occurs at a football stadium in Sheffield, England, resulting in the loss of 96 lives.
1997: Fire sweeps through a campsite of Muslims making the Hajj pilgrimage; the official death toll is 343.
2002: An Air China Boeing 767-200 crashes into hillside near Pusan, South Korea, killing 128.

That was intense, wasn't it? Most of the "events" belong under the "deaths" category. Hey, remember that rumor that Linda Perry had died?

I have dubaiwalla on my flist, now I know what he looks like!
Names to go with LJs are the greatest.

and yayyyyyy you posted more pictures!

I think you are seriously one of my FAVORITE LJ friends because you post pictures all the time, it never fails.
I am a very visual person, I guess, I enjoy having pictures to look at, it's like a window into someone else's world.

Haha, so that's probably creepy.

oops.

I drew a picture of dubaiwalla before I ever met him, and I gave him bedhead and a beard. Then there was that incident where I thought mcgillianaire was a girl for like, the first two months that I was talking to him.

And no, it's not creepy! I'm glad you enjoy my pictures so much! I love picture posts on other people's journals, as well... it's one of the many reasons I like LiveJournal so much. (That window thing.)

Sartre died in 1980?!? I wish I knew that.

The Titanic...classic.

Jennifer is hot, and I don't care who knows it!

Nitin (that's dubaiwalla to you) is becoming my favorite drinking pal in Dubai.
Woot! We totally need to get together more often, especially given that it now looks like I won't end up in London and might not see you guys for a while.

Nitin got bored with karaoke early
In my defense, 'early' was still around 4 or 5 AM.

You weren't picking up your phone yesterday, so I couldn't wish you (although I did get to hear you speak on your voicemail). Anyway, happy birthday again, and thanks for hosting us; I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we had a night worth remembering!

You're right, we'd better cram a couple of years worth of imbibing into the next few months! I think that's a challenge we can rise to, don't you?

Right!

You weren't picking up your phone yesterday,
I wasn't? Oh, crap, where's my phone? And how do I manage to misplace it, like, every day? Sorry about that! And how thoughtful that you called!

Did the star of such films as Bound attend your birthday party, or does the second picture just make it look that way?

Jennifer Tilly? It's funny you should say that, because my friend says people always tell her she looks like celebrities named Jennifer.

What other Jennifers do people think she looks like? I see only Tilly.

She told me she hears Jennifer Love Hewitt sometimes, and I think with straight hair and pinker lipstick, she looks a *lot* like Jennifer Connelly. There was some other Jennifer I'm forgetting, too.

I mean this in an 'artistically intrigued' work safe, non skeevy way, I'd be very interested in seeing portraits of her with hair and make up done to play up resemblance to different Jennifers. The only reason The Saint was watchable was to see Val Kilmer playing all those roles. The Seven Faces Of Dr Lao was extremely watchable, but seeing Tony Randal play seven different parts was icing on the cake.
