It's pretty much been shouted from every blooftop (that's blog + roof for those not familiar with blog speak) that today is the birthday of one of the Blogosphere's nicest guys but considering that I have had the pleasure of spending quite a bit of time in real life with the gentleman in question and I consider him to be one of my dearest friends, I would be horribly remiss not to join in wishing Morgen (aka Not the Mama) a very happy 42nd birthday!
There are just not the words to explain to you what a truly phenomenal guy Mo is because if you think he's virtually fantastic, you really need to meet him in the flesh. He's funny, he's warm, he's intelligent, he's caring, .... there just aren't enough adjectives to describe what type of person he is but I can tell you that I am beyond proud and honored to be called his friend.
Now, Mo is more of a pie guy than he is cake and even though pecan pie is his very favorite, I thought I'd serve up a nice apple custard pie. Unfortunately, I'm out of vanilla ice cream so you're just going to have to settle for it plain but I think you'll find it quite tasty nonetheless. So grab a slice, tune up your vocal chords, and then go over to It's a Blog Eat Blog World and sing a chorus of Happy Birthday to my good friend, Mo.
Mo - I wish you nothing but happiness on this birthday and the many more to come. I know that life has been pretty confusing and messed up lately, especially when you're trying to make some very hard decisions but if 42 is truly the answer to the Ultimate Question then you have nowhere to go but up and I have no doubt that the universe is going to start lining itself up properly for you very soon. If it doesn't, I'm just going to have to start taking names and kicking some cosmic behind.
Happy Birthday, my friend - I love you!
