Well, I'm the first REAL commenter!

Fauna, the green fairy (naturally) from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. A sweet, thoughtful soul.

Happy birthday, baby sis!
And Masil Q, too!

fauna-a gentle, pretty-sounding synonym of BEAST.

Happy birthday Aral and Masil Q!

Tan Lucy Pez said...

I like ActonBell's definition.

Fauna,n., Mmmmmmm...delish.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

OMG! Forgot to say Happy Birthday to Aral and Masil Q.

You two have a delicious day!

Doug said...

Capisco, Karma. Thanks. The xes were on the bottle, I guess.

Jamie Dawn said...

Sleeping Beauty came to mind immediately.
The fairies were Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather.
I think Merriweather was the one dressed in purple, and she was my favorite. She was kind of accident prone and silly. I'm always a fan of silly.

I'll be sure and stop by Ara's place to wish her a great day.

Fauna: Error- word not found. Check spelling or try another?

*hehe* Well, thought I'd act silly today since Doug loves silly.

Happy birthday people and many more... :)

karma said...

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

d dragon I knew Disney had something to do with it.

Happy Birthday to Aral and Masquil.

fauna,n. creatures often often found in the subway system of the city I reside in most of the year. fauna sounds so muchbetter than rats don't you think?

Sal Banana said...

Karma: I completely unnerstand. Look me up sometime.
Fauna: poetic description of beasts in one's bailiwick. Does not include pigs, dirty rats, stool pigeons, barflies, or the inhabitants of cathouses (to add to Bierce's list there).

Doug said...

JD, keep bringing the sugar.

Rum, eh? That explains why you were commenting at that hour.

Alice, it's good for pigs too.

Right, you are, Mr. Banana. Those are customers.

Thanks for all the well-wishes...but my birthday is actually on the 9th of November Doug. I have a few weeks of being in my 20s left yet.

Doug said...

Masil, I'm mortified. I was sure I read October 30 on your site. I don't know if I have the nerve to put something up that day.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Oh, yes, Doug. You HAVE to honor her on the correct day. It's your duty. Remember DUTY?

Fred said...

After many hours of working out, he stepped up to the bar and imbibed a bit too much, then asked where he could find the fauna.

Doug said...

TLP. Oh, yeah.

Fred, A guy walks into a health bar?

karma said...

you got our Lisa's birthday wrong? so now whose been tippling???

some benefactor you are :P

Doug said...

Can you believe that Karma, I was sure I saw that on her site about a month agp. Wjy is it every time I think I'm going to be cute I end up a fool?

karma said...

oh i believe you honey. maybe Lisa has 2 birthdays like we do - one according to the Hindu calendar, and one according to the Roman. does that sound like Greek to you?

and you're not fooling anyone, you are real cute when you're angry :))

What If This Could All Happen Automatically,
with a simple push of a button.....

Doug said...

That's it, Karma! It's her Hindu birthday!

Minka said...

no fair...my post dissapeared!
I was just so surprised that there was a Sunday post. Wasn´t it a first?

Doug said...

Das Leben is schwerig, nicht wahr? Not quite a first, some birthdays need to be acknowledged so if they fall on Sunday, I post then. My brother, Andy was the last one. I'll see if I can find your comment. I thought you left one, too.

Minka said...

So...what would happen if I have birthday on a Sunday? To be a post or not to be a post, that is the question!? You have a ocuple of years to think about it though :)

Doug said...

Post, Absolutely. How many years until your birthday?

Minka said...

July 17th 2011! I hope you´ll remember it. You´d better make a note of it!

Doug said...

I made a note. Will you turn 29 that year or 28 again? I'll be 107.
