Happy April Fool's Day | How About Orange

Happy April Fool's Day

I like today for three reasons. One, it's Friday. Two, it's my birthday. Three, it's April Fool's Day. An unrelated note: while our neighbors were out of the country recently, we may have accidentally let ourselves into their house and applied self-adhesive googly eyes to their stuff. Some eyes might possibly have ended up in our house, too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my dear April Fool!!! I will always remember going out the door heading for the hospital thinking "I don't want to have a baby on April Fool's Day!" But you came, anyway... and I do have to say, for a Fool, you turned out pretty good! ;)

I LOVE YOU TONS!!!
Mum

That's frikken awesome- that 1, it's Friday; 2, you share your birthday with a holiday that doesn't deprive you of gifts (like being near Christmas); and 3, the googley eyes. Mental note posted for April Fool's 2012.

Happy Birthday! I hope you are having a lovely day. The goggly eyes seem like they would help move things in that direction.

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday! Too funny you remind me of a time when I was in high school my friend and I snuck in to the school after hours and glued hundreds of googly eyes to a teachers door. He would always say he was watching us in class so we left a sign that said we're watching you.

Gal Gear said...

Happy Birthday!! I love the "eyes"!
"Looks" like you have a great sense of humor. ;)

Annika said...

The happiest of birthdays to you!

Norma said...

I love this eye thing. I'm going to do it to my co-workers stuff. I get in way earlier than them and I can't wait for them to show up and see pairs of eyes staring at them all day. LOL!!!!

Anne Magee said...

Happy Birthday! The googly eyes is a cute idea... :)

Wishing you many, many happy returns, and thank you so much for your wonderful blog, which is one of my favuorites.

Love the googley eye gag, too funny

Eleanor Rae said...

Happy Birthday for yesterday!! They googly eyes are amazing! Yesterday a friend of mine snuck into her flatmates room and covered everything with newspaper, including wrapping up all of his books/dvds/clothes. It was brilliant! xxxx

Chelle said...

Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great day.

Dee Tollaksen said...

Isn't anybody else worried that you are using hair gel to brush your teeth? Are your teeth so loose that you require extra firm control on your toothbrush? Or are you applying gel to your hair with the pulsating oral B brush?

Here's hoping those problem teeth or unique hairdo did not hamper an awesome April Fool's birthday!

Jess said...

Dee, I like the extra glossy shine it gives my teeth. Thanks for asking. :)

Danielle said...

Hey! It was my birthday yesterday, too! April Fools Babies. :) Hope you had a great day!

Pam said...

A very happy birthday to you, Orange Lady.
