Belated TGIF: Happy Birthday August 30, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, Random musings.

Yesterday was my birthday, and I spent it out of the office enjoying myself. The highlight was celebrating with my German Meetup.com group and friends and family at the local Oktoberfest. After starting off the night at the keg tapping (free beer) and enjoying the traditional German style polkas of The Hank Haller Band in the main tent, we spent the night drinking and dancing to a great rock band called Disco Inferno in the Microbrew Bier Garden.

I wanted to share this little birthday clip I received featuring Disney movie clips with characters saying Happy Birthday in various languages. Some of the languages (including the German one) are inaudible, but it is a cute video all the same. I’m off to celebrate my niece’s birthday today and both of our birthdays tomorrow with the immediate family. Why celebrate one day when you can celebrate all weekend? 🙂 Monday is a holiday both here and in Germany, and I’m going kayaking on Lake Erie (weather permitting). [Edit: Robin reminded me that it isn’t a holiday in Germany. I got our Labor Day confused with May Day – hey, it happens 🙂 ] I’ll be back in the office on Tuesday. I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!

I like the gift! Unfortunately, the Portuguese version was wrong and sounds like a speaker of American Spanish trying to pronounce Portuguese words (and not being very successful). It should be: Feliz aniversário!
By the way, feliz aniversário to you. Many happy returns!

Hi Jill, belated Happy Birthday. Hope you enjoyed the kayaking!
(BTW, today isn’t a public holiday in Germany – our next one is on October 3rd).

Hi Robin, Thanks! Yeah, I realized that last night. I logged on to set my autoresponder before getting ready to go kayaking. It’s a lot of fun with my waterproof MP3 player.

Thanks for the birthday greetings, everyone!
