Happy Birthday to me!

It's my birthday on Thursday! Do you know that no matter how old I get I still love birthdays? My philosophy is that I am growing older all the time, so the fact that I get presents and cards one day each year that celebrate ME is great! I am being taken out to dinner in the evening to a posh restaurant (best behaviour required) and I am as excited as a kid at Christmas! Daft huh?

To celebrate I have a couple of fun things for you (Well, I hope they are fun!).

A quiz - what's a birthday without dessert? What type are you?

You Are a Banana Split

Fruity, flavorful, and diverse.

Who can beat a true superstar?

And a game. Firstly, I feel like spreading the birthday joy a bit so when you comment please leave a question for the next person after you and answer the one the last visitor left for you. It's party chat time and some of you might have played this at Michele's.

Secondly, I like to be a good hostess so I like my guests to mingle. To achieve this I will introduce you to my blog roll. Please choose someone from the blogroll and go and visit them and tell them that 'Bob-kat sent me to spread the birthday joy'. I hope you do visit someone as everyone I have linked to is there for a reason, namely because I enjoy what they have to say, they are witty, funny, touching and thought provoking.

Thirdly, It's not a party without gifts so I'm sending you off on a treasure hunt (optional of course). Leave a link in the comments to something nice and/or funny that you think I would like. I like: cats, sunsets, penguins, comedy, films, flowers, chocolate and champagne. Happy hunting! I will be showcasing the best gifts on my blog soon!

Lastly, Happy birthday to me and a belated Happy Birthday to Naomi for yesterday and to anyone else who is celebrating a birthday about now! :) This next clip is for us!

Update: Thanks to all who have dropped by and been great birthday party guests and have bought wonderful gifts. I have loved looking at them all so big hugs to you all and thank you :) I feel all warm and fuzzy! I have had a wonderful birthday and will tell you all about it soon.

To kick off I would like to ask the next visitor 'What is the best and worse birthday present you were ever given?'

Great women think alike :-)

Hmm - diyadear's question is a good one.....'which birthday did you like the most and why?'

My 40th was amazing. I left MB and all my responsibilities at home and went to Cornwall with my friends for a week. We had a wonderful time, house of 11 people, kids, friends, noise, gifts, a lovely dinner out - and MB even had flowers delivered to the cottage for me.......

This year I am hoping to do something a little different too - and you are invited, Bobkat....

My question for the next visitor is....if you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

Now to visit someone new on your blogroll, honey........

Your pressie is here, sweetheart!,0.jpg
Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Birthday!

Duff link - your giftie is here.....


Beckie said...

Uh, I am a banana split...

I would be a cat...because I could sit around all day in the sun.

My question...Uh,What is your favorite fruit??

I am going to come back later with your gift - I need to go shopping. :)

Happy, happy Birthday!

Beckie said...

Hey, I'm back with your gift however lame it's one of those "interesting" gifts.

I visited Kenju!

kenju said...

Happy Birthday, Bob-kat~! I am a banana split too.

My question is: how many times have you posted on your blog this week?

Melody said...

Happy Birthday Bob-kat!!!

I too am a Banana Split. Great minds and all that...

I will pop over to your blog roll and visit someone.

In answer to Kenju's question, my answer is 2 times (I think). I've suffered from writers block this week as I usually like to try and do a post a day.

Next question for the next visitor is Would you like to be celebrating your birthday in the warmer months or cooler months, if you had a choice?

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

It is just half past midnight here and it is niw YOUR BIRTHDAY!

I agree with you, Birthdays never cease to be fun and something to look forward ro...!

I will be back with gifts!

In ansewrr to the question about whewn I like Celebrating my Birthday---Well, I'm happy as a clam celebrating exactly when I do---My Birthday was yesterday, June 27th...A Perfect Time!

Now for the next visitor:

If you could travel anywhere in the world--money is no object---Where would you go?

R. Sherman said...

Darn, I missed this yesterday. Happy Birthday!

Travel anywhere? New Zealand, I think, for a little climbing/hiking in the Southern Alps.

As for a question, if you had to change one of your actions which occurred in the last six hours, what would it be?

Back with a gift soon. I know the perfect thing.


R. Sherman said...

I wrapped it myself. Check out the upper left.


David said...

happy day to the birthday girl, I like your attitude!

i have been asleep in the last six hours, mostly :-) but I guess I would snore in a minor key.

i will have to shop for your gift, since my picture of a swollen purple finger nail is hardly apropos.

next visitor: do you come here often, and do you always leave a comment?

Ps said...

Happy happy birthday Bob-kat.
Here's my gift for you
(please copy and paste in the browser as i'm not sure if the HTML link will work)

Ps said...

Cant think of any question--can you?

JAM said...

Happy Birthday, bob-kat!

I hope you have the whole day to forget your troubles and have some fun.

utenzi said...

Happy birthday dear Bob-kat. I hope it's a lovely one. Here's a nice peaceful forest path for you to relax with.

mar said...

I am a banana split too! :)
Happy birthday to youuuu, happy birthday!
Hard to decide on a bday gift very quickly, so here is my favorite chocolate place in Barcelona, look under products and then pots: almonds dipped in dark chocolate is the one I give away more often!

And just for fun,a Custo design, of course!
Enjoy your day.

mar said...

And to answer David's question (which seems to be the last unanswered one)
Yes, I come here very often (I always feel welcomed, lol) and always leave a comment.
Next guest: do you remember how you found Bob-kat's blog? if not, just make something fancy up, it's her bday after all :)

Happy Burfday to yoooo
Happy burfday to yoooo
Happy burfday dear Bobkat....
Happy burfday to yoooo

Fanks for the deeeeeelish cakies today - and it was good to see you, even just for half an hour... :-)

Mar's did I find Bobkat's blog?
I'm her blogparent!!
She started off as a visiting blogger to my blog - swearing she didn't have time to blog......
Now her blog is 200 times better than mine......but I'm not bitter [smiles sweetly]

New question: If you were a circus performer, what would you be and why?



Carmi said...

What a lovely day for a birthday! And I completely agree with you: we're never too old to have a celebration. Life, after all, should be about the little moments of happiness that we allow ourselves to have.

My gift to you is a link to a picture I took last autumn. I had just brought my camera home from the store, and I was trying to take artsy pictures of some flowers I had bought my wife.

It was midday, and I needed to get back to work. But I was at peace at my kitchen table. The light was beautiful, and I still remember that moment like it happened just now. Enjoy...both this and the rest of your day.

Carmi said...

It would help if I actually posted the link. Sorry about that:

Mr. Althouse said...

Happy Birthday BK!

I'm so happy to attend your party. I'll answer the last question which was left by CQ -
If you were a circus performer, what would you be and why?

I'd be a trapeze dude because I like to take risks (but I'd still want a net!)

Next question: Which birthday is your earliest memory?


OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

My Dear Dear Bob-Kat...Here is a link I think you might enjoy!

And, guess what? I am a Banana Split, too! Isn't that wonderful? It must be the Chocolate Connection.
Hope you are still having a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL Day/Night!

Mr. Althouse said...

Here is a Birthday Present just for you:

Anonymous said...

Happy B'day Bobkat!!!! What a great party :)

In answer to Mike's question, my earliest birthday memory was my 13th. For some reason I can distinctly recall sitting at the kitchen table with some friends from school eating cake and opening presents.

A question for the next person:
What has been your favorite age so far?

BK I have to hit the sack for an early day tomorrow but I shall return bearing a gift!

gautami tripathy said...

Belated happy birthday!

Here from Michele's.

IndyPindy said...

Happy Birthday! That cake looks luscious! I will have to come back and take the dessert quiz! Hope you had a great dinner!

Anonymous said...

Happy birthday!

utenzi said...

Michele sent me by for a second round of Happy Birthday Bob-Kat. I hope you have a great birthday celebration yesterday.

Here's another picture for you. This one is a close up of a part of the waterfall that I was hiking to on that path I linked you to yesterday, B-K. I hope you like it.

R. Sherman said...

Another little something for you.


Anonymous said...

BK here is your belated birthday gift.

It is another Scrubs classic. Hope you enjoy it!

Dachsies Rule said...

Happy Birtheday! Sorry we are so belated. We hope it was all you wanted it to be.

Roxie, Sammy, Andy and the Dachsies' Mom

Dachsies Rule said...

Since no one has answered Sarch's question, I will. So far, 51 has been my best and favorite age. (If you ask me next year, it might be 52).

And a question for the next person ...

What kind of cake do you think is the best birthday cake?

misti said...

Belated Happy Birthday, hope you had a wonderful day. Also as a post bday present, i am tagging you to write 8 random things about urself. Enjoy, tc :-)

'B' said...

I hope that you had a great birthday... Sounds like fun was had by all who 'attended'!!

Oh, I was a Hot Fudge Sundae!
