Happy 4th to the big man!

Five things you would never wear again:
2) My Columbia outfit

Aw, c'mon!

Scrivener said...

What's a Columbia outfit? Like, one of those universiryt sweathsirts?

Genevieve said...

I believe it's a skimpy, fringy, shiny outfit worn when acting out The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Though it's possible I'm mixing up Columbia and Magenta . . .

HAPPY FOURTH, MUFFIN MAN!!! Have a fabulous day!!

halloweenlover said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MUFFIN MAN!! You get cuter by the day!

Phantom Scribbler said...

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday dear Muffin Man!
Happy birthday to you!

I am so going to ask you to sing "Oedipus Rex" someday when we meet...

jo(e) said...

Happy Birthday to Muffin Man!

It's funny, I just finished writing a blog post about something that happened when I was four years old, and I can remember thinking at the time that four was really old, practically grown up.

corndog said...

Do I know the Muffin Man?
The Muffin Man? The Muffin Man?
No I don't know the Muffin Man,
But his birthday is today!

Happy Birthday, big guy!

If you post a picture of one of your TtFTE track creations, I'll post one of mine and we can have a contest.

This is a Columbia outfit.

Re: Oedipus Rex

My favorite part is:

"Oh he loved his mother like no other
His daughter was his sister and his son was his brother...
When he found what he had done
He tore his eyes out, one by one
What a tragic end for a loyal son who LLLOOOOVED his MMMMOOOTHER."

(those last words are not stuttered, they're emphasized ala Jolson)

Marc said...

"5) Dona Nobis Pacem"

You crack me up!

Yankee T said...

Happy Belated Birthday to the sweetest Muffin Man ever!

Genevieve said...

Liz, we should have a Lehrer singalong next time we meet!

Though I hadn't planned on teaching J. those songs quite so soon (I feel like a bad mama enough now that he's singing Officer Krupke, which has lyrics that are not so kindergarten-appropriate).

liz said...

"Silent E" and "LY" are certainly appropriate. I learned "An Irish Ballad" in Summer Camp (age 9) as well as "The Hunting Song". The next year I learned "The Masochism Tango", didn't find out what it was about for another 3 years.
