How shall we celebrate?

So, we've sorted out what birthday gift to give the 5M. And, she's heading off to Montreal to celebrate with M. That should be a barrel of laughs. But, perhaps that plan has changed, what with all those kittens to look after. And her birthday is on the same day as Tom Cruise's. What do we know about this astrological sign? But, enough about them...What about us? Any suggestions on how we should mark the day?

To properly observe her birthday, we should get up at 5:30, go for a run or a yoga session, meet at the BH (Optional extra: shower together before BH), drink coffee, read the paper, and exchange as few words as possible with each other.

Then go home and blog.

"There's nothing like a saggy tent pole to make a romantic camping getaway a real downer. That's why I plan to celebrate the 5M's birthday by installing my new Mojomaster 5000 from Canadian Tire. Streamlined features, extra attachments and long-lasting batteries make it a must-have to take your experiences in the challenging, indifferent and perhaps emotionally co-dependent wilderness to new heights. But maybe you're worn out from a hard day at work, or you're just not into the task at hand. Don't worry, there's also the Mojomaster 10000. Only from Canadian Tire."

I think the ICTGO has finally found the definitive product we should get for the 5M (or at least for the use of her partners). Gotta love that Canadian Tire.

ICTGO, you are as random as Francis Heaney. How did we get from the ESI's celebration of 5M's birthday to the Mojomaster? Clearly,we haven't exhausted the ED issue, have we? If this continues, I'm going to have to call in Miss Marple for back-up. Hmmm... but as a part-time naturopath, she would likely offer nothing more than a long posting about the powers of panax ginseng.
But, now that you've brought this up, I believe I have an old rusty Mojomaster 1000 out in the garden shed. I'll have to send out one of the hired boys to work on it. Perhaps it is time for an upgrade.

You're deliberately trying to traumatise the help, aren't you, Agatha?

I like Dwarf's celebratory ideas... I think showering together is an excellent thought. ICTGO can make any of the inevitable repairs that will become necessary from trying to cram too many bodies into a single stall, even though, to be fair, Dwarf won't take up much space. And others of you may not be interested in lathering up in a confined space redolent of Eau de Sopping Chien. (Us coyotes speak several languages. Including Wet Dog.)

Hell with it. Let's break out the fermented mountain ash berries, and have a party!

Oh, Agatha, the new line of fine Canadian Tire products puts the Mojomaster 1000 to shame. Retire that relic and check out the Mojomaster 5000, a marvel of compact efficiency. And the Mojomaster 10000 represents a true technological breakthrough. Only from Canadian Tire.

Overheard at Agatha's Cottage:

"Is that a mojomaster in your toolbelt? or are you just happy to see me?"

The Independent Canadian Tire Guy Observer said...

Speaking of toolbelts, 4th Dwarf, Canadian Tire has a fabulous selection that will keep your favourite tools handy without making a big dent in your wallet. Have a peek at the versatile Masterbelt 2000. Only from Canadian Tire.

4th Dwarf said...

Say, ICTGO, the Masterbelt 2000 looks good, but I'm sentimentally attached to my Masterbelt 500.

It used to carry a MojoMasterMini, but I seem to have misplaced it.

I've seen recommendations for the MojoSlicer4, but I'm reluctant to try it.

Agatha said...

OK - both of you are seriously twisted.

4th Dwarf said...

Aggie, I'm sure you mean that in the nicest way.

I like the cut of your jib, 4th Dwarf. I think there's a spot for you with the Canadian Tire organization. You could help us appeal to the all-important miner/pirate demographic.
