3 weeks until a Sapo Verde

Sapo Verde means green frog. But it also means happy birthday. Happy birthday, with a strong Spanish accent, sort of sounds like sapo verde. Eh, never mind.

(and look - it is described as a typical Honduran birthday song)

Anyway, in 3 weeks (well 20 days now, since it is after midnight) its my birthday. And what I need you all to do is this. I have 7 children. So I need 7 volunteers to come to my house for a couple of hours, and each of you will take over one of my children. So it will be easy on you (since you only have one to watch) AND you will have 6 other people here to keep you company once the little ones go to bed. (and I send my kids to bed starting at 7:15ish - see easy night). That way I can go out to dinner, maybe a movie, maybe not, for my birthday. So sign up for who you want in my comment section. And don't worry, I have plenty of kids to go around. You all can even have your own party once my kids fall asleep. Discuss it among yourselves as to who will bring which liquor, and which foods. If it sounds tempting enough, I may just buy a cake and come home and party with you all.

And because I love you all, I went through my old posts - ones that I transfered over here from my other blog, that you probably haven't read yet. I found some (7 - thats not to many, right??) that I think are funny, and I thought I would link them here for you. I hope you enjoy them.

If you read no other links - you need to read this one OH MY

Sorry we're too far away to take one of the kids :)

I've been reading your blog with interest and don't want to miss anything once you get to Honduras. Will you have internet access there?

And for so long I thought Feliz Cuplianos (is that even spelled right?) was Happy Birthday. I like sapo verde!! Anyway Happy Birthday!! I will watch all of your kids! They are just too cute! But I think I am too far away!! It looks like you might get everything done on your list soon!! YEAH!!!

Jennifer said...

Andre - Feliz Cumpleanos does mean Happy Birthday. Its just that when you say Happy Birthday with a heavy hispanic accent on it, it sounds alot like Sapo Verde (green frog) and so it sort of became a funny version of Happy Birthday.

Mary - I hope to have some sort of internet access, even if it is just via the internet cafes.
