Another celebration of Andrew's birthday on a completely
random date since he likely predated any calendar including whatever
the raptors and triceratops might have used. ;-)
hope you enjoy the festivities! This year I mostly went for
games cause I get the feeling a lil lighthearted distraction might be
Birthday Wishes from Dyeland
I get to the games, there are a few birthday messages to Andrew
from his friends in Dyeland so here goes!
Birthday Andrew. I wish you the best now and far into the
future. Thanks for being one of my taste testers.
Birthday buddy. It's been a slice. I know we'll have
many more years of highs...and lows...but it's worth it in the
end. Let's get together soon for another gig. Henry
there, Dearest and Loveliest of all Andrews who is My Skin Horse and
Swan Boat and also a
Darling Boy who also happens to be an Angel Boy... Happy
birthday!!! I know, of course, it's not really your birthday but
I'm so glad we have this day to celebrate you! And your flannel
shirts. Speaking of which... enjoy these! They can replace
the ones some of us, uh, borrowed. ;-)
So now is this the big 4 O O O O O O
O O? ;) Rose told me to ask.
Regardless of how truly ancient you may be, I wanted to let you know
that I really appreciate you. I'm glad we've become
friends. You make me feel young since the upper 80s is nothing
compared to your age. Except when you whoop me at pool.
It's been fun... humbling but fun.
Andrew's Birthday Trivia
thought it might be fun to engage in a few birthday appropriate party
games! Most of these are inspired by games we played at parties
when I was in grade school. So I guess Andrew's getting thrown an
8 year old girl's party. ;-) In any case, first, here's a
little Andrew-themed trivia
quiz. Some of the questions are from material that originated
with JABB. Other questions originate with TBAA. Have fun
and good luck!
of the following is NOT one of Andrew's nicknames?
breed is Andrew's dog, Lulu?
Jack Russell Terrier
sport did Andrew and Dawn (from "We Trust to Thee") lead up
opposing teams for?
costume has Andrew NOT worn for a Dyeland Halloween party?
is the name of the dog Andrew is caring for in "Venice"?
is the name of the baby Andrew, adorably, spends time with in
is the name of the lady that dies (in a quite enviable way, I must
say) at the end of the Season 9 opener?
Christmas in Dyeland, Andrew received a new pocket watch.
What message is engraved inside?
"To Andrew, love from Dyeland!"
"I love you"
"You are never alone"
"Peace and love, always"
dance does Andrew teach in "The Last Day Of The Rest Of Your
one of JABB's historical flashback stories, Andrew has a
horse. What is the horse's name?
is the name of Andrew's house in Dyeland?
fake surname has Andrew not used?
Andrew's Birthday Memory
(or whatever it's called)
is definitely a game we used to play at birthday parties when I was a
girl. Unfortunately, it doesn't translate really well
online. You're gonna have to be on the honor system!
Usually how this is done is the host puts a bunch of items on a
tray. The participants then get, say, sixty seconds to look at
the tray. The tray is then covered and whomever can recall the
most items wins! I can imagine the Dyelanders enjoying
this. So if you wanna get a feel for what they might be up to,
click the link below. Look at the photos for 60 seconds then X
of the screen. Jot down what items you remember. If you're
curious to see how you rank, email me what you got and I'll post the
results over on the JABB Scoreboard which has been woefully abandoned
for years! Same goes for all these games.
of a word person? See how many words you can come up with using
ONLY the letters in this phrase:
Birthday Word Game!
ain't it nifty? Andrew's turning a bazillion and fifty!"
number, of course, is not accurate but shouldn't affect the outcome of
the game. ;-)
Andrew's Birthday Pictionary!
who doesn't love playing Charades at a birthday party?
Unfortunately, that's virtually possible to translate online although,
again, I'm sure the Dyelanders would be enjoying just such a game
today. I'm very jealous of them... So, instead, you can
play another game that was a party staple back in the day. Below
I've drawn (rather horribly) depictions of stuff related to
Andrew. See if you can guess them! And now you should all
know why I write JABBs typically and do NOT draw them. ;-)
that's all! I hope ya had fun! Answers will be added on or
before Thursday September 24th so check back!
Happy Birthday, Andrew!!!
