Happy Birthday, Johnny. You’re 51 today. Which boggles the mind and raises so many questions for me personally. Do I really have a crush on a 51-year-old man? Is 51, like, the new 27? Or does all of this nonsense really just indicate the fact that I’m the one getting old?
(eyes closed, fingers in ears) LALALALALALA! Nope! Never mind. Don’t answer that!
So, in honor of his special day, we’re taking a look back at the many … many … MANY blog posts I’ve written about Mr. Depp.
(spit-taking my water because I don’t care much for coffee) Three??? I’VE ONLY WRITTEN THREE?!!? (noticeably disappointed in self) And I call myself a fan. Apparently, I really need to up my stalker game. (shaking head at self in disgust) Well, in my defense, I said I was listing the posts I wrote ABOUT Johnny. Had I been listing the posts I’ve written that simply MENTIONED him, our number would be a much more impressive … eighteen. (hold for applause)
There. That should satisfy them enough to let me keep my limited edition fan club lapel pin. (exhale of relief)
June is Blog Post by Numbers Month. Wanna play with Mel and me? Just write a “listy-type” post with a number in the title (ex. FOUR Reasons I Love Mayonnaise, SIX Things You Can Do With A Paper Clip). Then link back to us and tweet us about it so we can include you on June 30th in our final list: (Number-Yet-To-Be-Determined) Great Bloggers Who Played the Blog Post by Numbers Game!
The Ford Mustang
The Rolling Stones self-titled debut album

And this man
How is that possible?!!?

On behalf of the whole family, I want to wish you the happiest of birthdays on this … your FIFTIETH birthday. I am truly floored. You still don’t look a day older than Benny & Joon to me. Which is now an astonishing 20 years old! (We still need to make that sequel we keep threatening to make, by the way. LOL!)
Anyway, I just wanted to remind you about your party. As requested, we’re keeping things small with only the short list of friends we talked about last month. Ooh, and I found somebody to make that Caribbean Pineapple Upside Down Cake you mentioned. She’s a good friend of mine from school. It sounds amazing and it should complement the “Happy Birthday, Mon!” island theme you finally selected. (Yes, I know. “No surprises, Michele! And this time, I MEAN it!” Blah, blah, blah. Whatever, J.)
Please don’t forget to bring your guitar. I’ll have mine, too, so we can play that duet we used perform together in college. But don’t laugh! I haven’t kept up my playing as well as you have. And I fully expect to suck. But that’s sort of what makes it funny, remember? I mean … as long as we’re both wearing the Rastafarian wigs and all. And I forgot to tell you … Dave got his hands on an old karaoke machine. The kids are going to be so pumped. Tell Lily-Rose that Viv wants to sing Wicked with her. But this time in ENGLISH! 🙂
Have a great day with the kids at the church picnic this afternoon. Sorry it had to fall on your birthday. But we’ll make it up for it in Neil Diamond impersonations tonight! (HAHAHA!)
P.S. I’m wearing the red shoes you sent me from Madrid. You were right. They match my sundress perfectly. Thanks!
