Happy Birthday to my Daddy!

My DaddyToday is my Daddy’s birthday!! He is a FANTASTIC number today, which is 60. It is a nice even number to help showcase his awesomeness. (Next year, when he is 61, I will say: “It is a nice odd number to help showcase his brain-damaged-ness.” My dad is so awesome, he is awesome for even AND odd numbers!)

Please read this post that I made for Father’s Day in 2005. It is all about my dad and how awesome he is. And, here are some photos from his birthday last year, when I visited him!

You should read this post, too, about me and my dad having dinner with Mom and Grandma in Dublin last autumn. It is about tape worms, and how to ambush them with sausage and a hammer, and how my dad keeps me sane.

My dad has the best songs and the best ideas. He also gives the best presents, because they come out of nowhere and make you feel the most best good in the whole world. He gave me a headlamp once. You should read about that, too. Also, here are some pictures of me wearing it.

Dad visited me in Austin in July. I got to have him here for two weeks! We ate lots of delicious food, except for when we ate lentil soup, which he likes (but I don’t). He stayed on our comfy couch and had a nice vacation. It was awesome! I want to go to Youngstown to visit him soon, but I need $250 to do it. I miss my dad. I want to watch the first season of Dr. Who with him. I think I have mostly bonded with my dad near a television, which is kind of funny and amusing. :P

Me and my Daddy!

When I was growing up, sometimes we would watch Henry V. This is one of Dad’s favorite movies. It has Kenneth Branagh in it, and was written and directed by Kenneth Branagh, too. That makes it extra awesome. Dad’s favorite part is the St. Crispin’s Day speech. It’s my favorite part, too. Henry V was Welsh, like me! When I watch Henry V, it makes me feel safe and comfy and happy. (I feel that way when I watch Star Trek: The Next Generation, too!) It is the same when I watch Kingdom Hospital, or read Stephen King books, or study French. Those are all because of my dad, and that makes me happy.

I have tons of pictures of my dad in my office. He is all over the place! I have a bunch of pictures with him that I like the best of anything. There is the picture of us when I was little and we had matching hair. And there is the picture of us with Mom in Apple shirts. And there is the picture of us at dinner when my Aunt Joan visited us. And there is the picture of us at the sushi restaurant when my Aunt Cheryl visited us, and a picture I took of us while we were on a train traveling across England, after our trip to Wales. And there is the set of photos I made from when we ate at a tapas restaurant in Swansea and he made lots of faces trying to get his handheld to access the internet!

Dad in Swansea

There are also lots of photos of him being proud of me when I sang in Swansea, and I like those photos a lot. (There are also more pictures of him being silly. I like those a lot, too!!)

See the awesome?? I love my dad a TON. I hope he has the bestest birthday in the whole world and I promise to come visit him soon (or fly him here to visit me, or take him to Wales or Ireland again, or have a nice picnic, or all those things!) I think he is pretty much niftiest dad ever.

Happy Birthday Daddypie!
