...and may the next 96 be just as vivid.





(okay, I stuffed up... I'm a day ahead over here. Sorry, but the wish still stands.)

Ha! I guess it is February 13th where you are, Poetinahat. I thought you were just a little over-eager.


Happy birthday, Mr. Haskins. Hope you receive very few smilies.

Much as I'd like to claim credit for stalking Our William... I just can't.

I only know what the AW forum homepage tells me. Then again, who the cap fit, let him wear it.

William, thank you for everything you offer to this community. You keep us on our toes, you keep us amused, and you keep us interested. And I, for one, am grateful for all of the above.

Happy Birthday, a tad early

Happy--early--Birthday, William. You're a good egg even though you pretend to be rotten. May you have many more! (Birthdays, not eggs).

Happy birthday, William.

Somehow, I can't help but think you will respond to this thread in the same way Eeyore did on his birthday.

"'That's right,' said Eeyore. 'Sing. Umty-tiddly, umpty-too. Here we go gathering Nuts and May. Enjoy yourself.'"

It is tomorrow over here. My forum homepage says today is his birthday.

Happy for the thread to be put away until it's the proper day in the Centre of the Universe....

OMG that is TOO funny! I was determind to not post a single smiley and not use a big font with bright colors.

William, just in case I don't get in here on tomorrow, and since it is your birthday somewhere in the world at this moment, I'd like to wish you a Happy Birthday. I hope your special day is everything you wish for and more.

Where do I deliver the 65 pounds of roadkill? I been savin' it up for months!

Have a great day, Haskins. I almost never agree with you, but lord, you make me laugh! May you have a birthday in which you get all that hilarity right back. And, just for good measure, one more, to grow on.

Maryn, smiley-free

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

And such an occasion warrants the use of 7pt palatino linotype in lime green - definitely!

Have a good one!

Though rhymed, metered verse
is not my forte,
It's Haskins' birthday,
so I said, "What the hey".

We're all getting older;
don't fret and don't stew,
I hope it's consoling
that I'm older that you!

Have a great birthday, William!
I hope you have fun,
so I'm sending this poem,
with no emoticon.

I'm with Poet on this one - it's already over 13 hours into the 13th here in Queensland, Oz, and if I wait a few more hours until the 13th clicks over in the US, our day here is almost over... let's say this is a huge Mexican wave started Down Under... and a party is a party, so... (just blame it on the blood rushing to our heads)...


Happy 40th William!

Cheers to many more!

Hehe! 4-0...
That's a lot of seconds (1.26227704 10 to the power 9), minutes (21037950.6), hours (350632.511), days (14609.688), weeks (2087.09828), fortnights (1043.54914), months (480)... of life!

Too many numbers? Makes you dizzy...

Congrats on 4 decades! Have a great one!

Only a limerick would do
To say Happy Birthday to you
It's short and it's boring
(At least you're not snoring)
Today, won't you go hoist a few?

Happy Birthday, William.
Thanks for all you do.

A BIRTHDAY POEM FOR WILLIAM

I know you don't like smilies
or great big colored fonts,
But perhaps a birthday poem
is something you might want.

I hope it's not too schmaltzy,
'cause that would make you cringe,
Yes, sugar-coated language
might make you come unhinged.

That doesn't leave me too much
to put into this verse,
I hope it doesn't come across
as too unkind or terse.

The best thing I can think of
is to very simply say,
As you're turning one year older,
HOPE IT'S ONE HELLUVA DAY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, WILLIAM!

Death, irony, grim angst and searing emotional hell.

It could only be William's birthday.

Urm...Happy birthday, William.

May your flails be ever rusty,
and your whips forever crack.

May your chains never get dusty
May knives bounce off your back.

May the cocktails that you drink,
Contain poisen you're immune to

May the screaches, wails and moans you hear,
Play a song you can sing in tune to.

And while you write your manuscript,
Typing all day long,
May no silly idiots disturb you
by singing the birthday song!

Hmmm, you and my brother have the same birthday, must be something about people born on the 13th of February. Strangely enough, so many of your posts remind me of him.

Well anyway, Happy Birthday William. I am using every ounce of self control to not use bright, pretty fonts and large, happy smileys...just for you.

Next, Please


Always too eager for the future, we
Pick up bad habits of expectancy


Something is always approaching; every day
Till then we say,


Happy Birthday


I always thought those first two stanzas from Philip Larkin's Poem, Next Please would make a great birthday greeting, but I never knew who on earth to send it to.

Happy Birthday, William

You know, I make a mean birthday cake, come to think of it. Although maybe not mean enough for Haskins!

Happy Birthday, William! Sharing the same birthday with the likes of Jerry Springer, Chuck Yeager, Randy Moss, and Henry Rollins...no surprise that none of them were fans of smilies either. Have a good one.

So happy birthday!
