Happy Birthday to the flyingscotsman!

Happy Birthday! And many more to rain upon ye. <or was that a freakin' Irish wish?>

Anyway, have the rest of what I hope was a good one, FSM! Hugs and blown kisses your way!





Here, have a Stella.

EDIT: My bad. The "flyingscots_man" in question is not our "flyingscotsman." <pouty Vega look>

But, no reason not to celebrate him early. We'll just get to celebrate him again in the summer.

Hm.... Double-day birthdays seem to be becoming a Foo tradition.... Oh, why not? On a slooooow day? It's all good, eh?

Here, FSM, have some Spotted Dick.


To the mods: that's real English food. Look it up. Ask our English BF'ers/Foo'ers. <earnest Vega look>

Otherwise, report to Foo Sick Bay. <serious Vega look>

When they pass around your birthday haggis, you can take mine as well. I won't mind... really.

Wait! You mean I used my special Robert Burns-channelling powers for an impostor?!?!!

Hope the real flyingscotsman's birthday's still far off. Robbie doesn't like being disturbed too often, and is still miffed about that time I got him to write a poem eulogizing Kim Il Sung...

I think he had this ref in mind when he chose this moniker, but it was already taken in another form.

FSM's b-day is in summer.

Glad to see you up and frisky, gbcb, though it means that I'm still up, too. At 4:17am.

Ah well, it's somebody's birthday, somewhere! Once the avalanche gets moving there's no stopping it!

He might have been able to save up for a bottle by then, once he starts paying for his new house!
