it's my party

Grumpy Cat aka Tardar Sauce, 2013
"it's my party, and i'll cry if i want to
cry if i want to, cry if i want to
you would cry too if it happened to you."
(Lesley Gore - It's My Party, 1963)
one year ago it was my birthday.  i guess, today would be ... indeed, it's my party, and i'll cry if i want to, cry if i want to, cry if i want to!  you would cry too if it happen to you - turn 38 that is!  pray for me that i survive! ;)

by the way, apparently this song is becoming quite popular among the kids these days.  just like Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, Lesley Gore's song is covered and remixed by Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, Drake, Miley Cyrus, and Icona Pop.  who knew?!  anywho, Lesley sings it best, just as Leanord Cohen did too.

this morning, i'm off to the deaconate ordination of Matthew Chojna, Bryan Kipling Cooper and Douglas Hayman at Divine Infant.  please pray for them!  and later i'm off to a parté of course with family and friends!  there will be no crying, i don't think! :)

thanks again for all your birthday wishes, tweets, emails, phone calls, texts, and cards!  i have you all in my prayers.  God Bless.  peace.

"they say it's your birthday
it's my birthday too, yeah
they say it's your birthday
we're gonna have a good time
i'm glad it's your birthday
happy birthday to you"
(Beatles - Birthday, 1968)
i grew up watching Passe Partout (EN, FR).  indeed, so did most of Quebec children at the time (1977 - 1987).  this video seems appropriate today:

by the way, it's my birthday tomorrow!  peace.
