Wendy's Birthday Wish List

funny pictures - We was told there'd be cake and strippers. Yes indeedy, it's Happy Birthday day here at the Bat Cave.  Now you're probably asking yourself, what does the Queen Librarian of the Universe do on her birthday?

This year I'm working the late shift.

Yes folks, my life really is this glamorous.

So what does the librarian who has everything want on her birthday?  I will forever be Librarian of the Year 2011.  I've got a man who gives me sparkly gifts and takes me out for killer birthday dinners.  I've got books.  I've got chocolate.  I've got enough caffeine to run a nuclear power plant in a third world country.  What else could there possibly be?

1) A firm, yet soft cushion to protect my forehead as I spend the next 11 months slowly banging my head against my desk at work.  Yep, I've heard final budget rumors - and....somebody hold me.

2) A Greek tycoon to keep me in the style to which I could quickly become accustomed.  Granted, the Greek economy isn't so great right now.  So.....


3) Said Greek tycoon to gather up the last of his millions and spirit me away to a tax shelter - say, the Cayman Islands.

4) I'm not greedy though.  I'd happily settle for the Greek tycoon to pay me my current salary so I can stay home and read books for a living.

5) Gerard Butler and Ewan McGregor.  In kilts.  'Nuff said.


6) For the new Batman movie to not suck.  Confession time: I'm not a Catwoman fan (I know, I know), so I'm worried.


7)  To be Judi Dench when I grow up.  Or barring that....


8) Maggie Smith.


9) For Jim Leyland to stop playing Ryan Raburn.  Seriously?  Why?!?!?!?!!?  Why?!?!?!?!?!?! 


10) To read nothing but really awesome books for the next year. Not that I spend a lot of time reading crap, but nothing but awesome would be, well....awesome. Or maybe it would just warp me.

11) Minions.  It's exhausting being this awesome (and humble!) without them.


12)  Oh, and world peace.  Just so I don't come off as completely self-absorbed (too late).

Happy, happy!

Happy birthday Wendy. May your next year be full of reading awesomeness and that the politicians deciding on things won't cut your budgets as much as you think (do you have anyone in your community who can do for libraries what Margaret Atwood did in Toronto - the City still cut budgets, but it wasn't quite as gruesome as the Ford cabal wanted).

May all your birthday wishes come true. You deserve it. Even if you don't get quite everything on your list I hope your day and your year a wonderful.

Happy birthday Wendy. May your day and your year be filled with awesomeness of every kind and even though it would be fantastic to have you as Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, I vote that instead you just never grow up! Cheers.

No head-banging allowed on your birthday! Have a great one.

Happy birthday!

Got to agree, not a Catwoman fan - except from the 60s Batman, and even then I really was all about The Riddler.

Nikki said...

Happy Birthday! I hope you have the best year ever! And with Gerard Butler and Ewan McGregor, how could you not? :)

AnimeJune said...

Happy birthday! And may you have many more!

This wishlist is just hilarious, 'specially when I got to the fifth, that I thought,"this lady's got too much blood in her caffeine system". Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. I do hope you'll get the things you wished for. Happy Birthday, and I really hope you had an awesome one.

Tracy said...

Well I'm completely behind but...Happy Belated Birthday, Wendy!!!!

I love your wish list! I think I'll have to add some of those to my own list - especially the minions and the men in kilts. :)

Hope you had a great day.

Happy Belated Birthday, Wendy!

I love your list, but... didn't you know that #5 already belonged to me? *g* (Keeping my fingers crossed for that new Batman movie too).

I hope you had the best of days!!

Leslie said...

Happy belated birthday! Hope it was awesome. : )

Wendy said...

Thanks for all the happy birthday wishes everybody! I did have a nice day - and now I'm settling into the nuttiness that is the rest of this month. Oy! Full calender!

*Goddess* said...

Puhleeze. Leyland didn't have the good sense to keep Stan Belinda off the field which is why the Pirates ate it three years in a row and why I stopped watching baseball FOREVAH.

Oh and Happy Birthday, Mizz Librarian of the Year 2011. BTW, did that gig come with a sash and tiara?

Wendy said...

Goddess: I had to look up Belinda's stats, which to be honest, didn't seem that bad to me. Then I read them to My Man who proclaimed: "Back then? In the NL? Yeah, not good." LOL!

Kelly in Hockeytown said...

Amen to Leyland (NOT) playing Raburn. Let's face it, he is the poor man's Brandon Inge, without the defensive skills. Ugghhh.

Wendy said...

Kelly: OMG - exactly!!! At least with Inge you knew he wasn't going to suck eggs defensively. I keep screaming for Danny Worth. He can't hit the broad-side of a barn either, but at least he can play second base!
