"Do I have to wear a costume and wig?"



When Beth drunkenly called me from Paris on Wednesday it was to tell me a happy early birthday and to tell me that she had just submitted her final dissertation edits, so very soon she'll be Dr. Beth with a PhD from Cambridge doing her post-doc in Paris. Not bad at all. Looks like we both have something to celebrate!

Since she is living in France, she approves highly of my inadvertently French birthday theme. I think I have my dress sorted and figured out how to make my hair a la Marie Antoinette. Ms. K is still a bit mystified as to why I have to dress up in costume for my birthday, but I explained by saying that I am secretly a drag queen stuck in a Lesbian's body and that for one year every year she's allowed to run rampant. I think Ms. K okay with that.

Now bring on the champagne, bitches!

Happy Birthday! It is officially your birthday already in Paris! Also, here's to all birthday wishes lasting for "one year every year" :)
Love,
Beth

Happy birthday! Your party plans are inspiring me. Maybe next year, I'll get a little dragged out myself...

Wearing a costume is a great idea! I just celebrated my birthday too, but I didn't have a big party, or dressed up... anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Sending you best wishes from Berlin!
