Happy Birthday, Christina!!!

I'm sorry that I had a work deadline that prevented me from actually spending much quality time with you on your birthday, but it looks like your Mom made up for it in spades. Don't forget, we have our own celebration tonight... and I say yes, let's go to Blowfish!!!

To those who are *not* Christina, let me start by saying that life is wonderful, and life is also unfair. This is the face of a 40 year old woman...:

We've long joked that there must be a portrait* hidden somewhere up in the attic that I nor anyone else knows about... come to think of it, Christina does get awful anxious each time I climb up to inspect the upper rafters... maybe she is hiding something up there (LOL!)

Anyway, here's a Happy Birthday wish to the most beautiful woman on Earth, at least as regarded by yours truly :).

* Note: "portait hidden somewhere up in the attic" is a reference to "The Picture of Dorian Gray", a novel written by Oscar Wilde. I'm sure most of you out there already know that, but for those that don't, well, now when you hear me say it, you'll know what I'm talking about (LOL!).

Happy Birthday, you really are so beautiful and you both are so smart. . .I have no idea what your reference it to. . .I've HEARD of Oscar Wilde, but never read him. . .I'd better put that on my list of things to do before I die!

Oscar Wilde is fairly racy stuff for its time, so caveat lector and all that :). Still, The Picture of Dorian gray has been revived in many different formats over the years, so the idea of having a "relic" that ages instead of you is relatively common in popular culture. I'll admit the only reason I learned about it was from a rather hammy TV movie made in the early 80s on the subject, only Dorian Gray was a woman, and the portrait was a film reel where the character aged. A little research and finding out the story came from Oscar Wilde, and there you go :).
