when i say happy, you say birthday

madman - do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight, baby!Sure, I may say often that my husband Justin is damn lucky to have me as his wife, but if truth be told it's me that's the lucky one. Today he celebrates his 23rd birthday (that's right, 23!) and I hope you all join me in wishing him an incredibly happy birthday. Without his love, support, guidance and strength, I would be curled up in a fetal position in some mental hospital right now and there would be no small victory.

Happy Birthday to the perfect husband - the one who shares my obsessions with comic books and action figures and cheesy kung-fu movies and Faith No More, to the man who makes me feel like I'm 23.

An added bonus for your listening pleasure -our song:

Nick Cave - Are you the one that I've Been Waiting For mp3
[lyrics below]

I've felt you coming girl, as you drew near
I knew you'd find me, cause I longed you here
Are you my desitiny? Is this how you'll appear?
Wrapped in a coat with tears in your eyes?
Well take that coat babe, and throw it on the floor
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

As you've been moving surely toward me
My soul has comforted and assured me
That in time my heart it will reward me
And that all will be revealed
So I've sat and I've watched an ice-age thaw
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

Out of sorrow entire worlds have been built
Out of longing great wonders have been willed
They're only little tears, darling, let them spill
And lay your head upon my shoulder
Outside my window the world has gone to war
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?

O we will know, won't we?
The stars will explode in the sky
O but they don't, do they?
Stars have their moment and then they die

There's a man who spoke wonders though I've never met him
He said, "He who seeks finds and who knocks will be let in"
I think of you in motion and just how close you are getting
And how every little thing anticipates you
All down my veins my heart-strings call
Are you the one that I've been waiting for?


...to the man who makes me feel like I'm 23.

That's the most important bit right there...the one that makes the naysayers puce with jealousy.

Happy Birthday Justin!
