I was a bit surprised to see you have been a memeber since 2009. What pissed my off though was realizing it is 2012. Happy B-day dude.

<~ has just wet himself ever so slightly.

My dearest 2B_orNot2B,

I send felicitations and salutations to you on this, the most auspicious of days. If the popular aphorism that a picture is worth a thousand words holds true, then each and every one of your posts has provided Toytown with at least one warm, heartfelt, intelligent picture of life in Germany and its myriad aspects.

May you imbibe only the finest libations and sup on the most exquisite delicacies today, on the anniversary of your trans-vaginal (or perhaps trans-abdominal?) passage into an earthbound existence, with many more to come.

I spotted the Topic title and OP yesterday, shortly after Munich's best ErklaerenBaerin (to whom 10 virtual kilos of bamboo shoots and leaves are en route) opened it, and after licking my lips over that sweet cake, clicked on the link under the Savage Chickens Hamlet cartoon. There were a handful of comments under it. One post said, I think if you're going to have your chickens playing Shakespeare, then the title sign really ought to say Omlette. :D

I couldn't help thinking of Orla Inka all day yesterday (half hoping to see her moniker in the last posted slot) as it was she who first outed me this time last year.

Gwaptia vastly underestimated how much time my 1-finger needed to take to thank you all very, very much! I'm quite moved.

OK, I was quite moved a few times... and not just on the beer and whisky runs. Really, I feel honoured as I have a lot of respect for all of you.

sgt. schmitty, my wee bitty edit of a covering letter and rah-rah coaching for your pre-test stress, didn't friggen save your life. Your ability and hard work did. I knew my confidence in you wasn't misplaced. Congrats on your IHK result. Enjoy your walks in the Norwegian wood and alles gut for the job front.

My dearest Elton Jeffington-Smyth, part the 3rd, Mark 2,

as a result of the effects your missive had on me I was unable to avoid doing irreversible damage to a previously perfectly functioning and serviceable rotating office chair. I, of course, intend to instruct my people to contact your people in order that they may expedite the dispatch from there, and arrival here, of a suitable replacement seating device. I trust you will inform them of the urgency of this matter in view of the possible impending seasonal interruptions to service as I naturally expect you to maintain no less than best practice as per usual.

You get the picture.

yours etc., 2B_Rich_or Not2B'ard (A.M.I.H.R.), T.T.(3), L.M.F.A.O.

PS: Thanks too, for the PM wishes.

B) As You Like It. Whether shy, bashful or afraid of rep damage, images remain intact ...or in tatters. :P Much Ado About Nothing.

2B_orNot2B: < that is the question:

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;

No more; and by a sleep to say we end

The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks

That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation

Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;

To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;

For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

Must give us pause. There's the respect,

That makes calamity of so long life;

For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

the oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,

The pangs of disprized love, the law's delay,

The insolence of office, and the spurns

That patient merit of the unworthy takes,

When he himself might his quietus make

With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,

To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

But that the dread of something after death,

The undiscover'd country from whose bourn

No traveller returns, puzzles the will,

And makes us rather bear those ills we have

Than fly to others that we know not of?

Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;

And thus the native hue of resolution

Is sicklled o'er with the pale cast of thought,

And lose the name of action. Soft you now!

The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons

Be all my sins remember'd.

OY!

OPHELIA!

You missed your cue!

2B would like to belatedly thank two 1970/1 inmates, ('Sam' Costa and 'Half-pint' Taylor), and three staff members* at HMB FWCamp for taking the part of an audience and providing him the opportunity to have once voluntarily spouted the Bard's soliloquy at full volume and in full flow (from memory!) from atop the chimney of the outdoor waste wood furnace (*and last, but not least, the illicit drugs for the inspiration to do so).

The staff guys were passing by just as I'd started, but they had the decency to stand still and watch in amused amazement until, at the end, they applauded and then walked on, laughing.
