Let the Birthday Bash Begin!

I’m not a hobbit, not even close. For one thing, I don’t have tough, furry feet, nor am I the size of a child. But I do have a practical hobbitish love of the comforts of home, overindulge at every opportunity, and am especially fond of birthday parties.

Today is my birthday.

Birthdays are especially fun because, among other things, my children remember me. Another fun thing about birthdays is cake. I like cake. But the most fun of all is probably the giving of presents.

I expect to be getting presents, but I will also do it like a hobbit and give out a few presents of my own. Because it’s my birthday! I will give out a new present every day for three days: today, tomorrow, and Saturday/Sunday.

Today and today only, if you leave an answer to the Birthday Question in a comment, you will be entered into a drawing for your choice of a $10 gift card from Amazon, AllRomance, or Dreamspinner. Deadline to enter is 6 a.m. tomorrow morning, because that's when my poodle and I will pick the winner. Remember to include your email address so I have a way to contact you.

The Birthday Question

I’m in the mood for fun, so… what’s the funniest movie you’ve ever seen?


  1. I love the Animal House movie.

    1. Oh, that's a good one! I hope you stop back and leave an email address, Debby. :)

  2. I love birthdays!!! Happy Birthday to YOU!!
    my favorite funny movie was "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World" (yeah, I'm that old. ROFL) There have been 'copies' since like Rat Race', but the original with all of those great stars was just amazing!

    1. Thanks, Pat. :D Oh, I love that movie too. It even has Buster Keaton, my favorite silent film star, though he was really old by then. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I know it'll seem silly coming from me... But my favorite funny movie(s) would have to be the American Pie collection. More so numbers 2 and 4, tho. I think the main reason for this is because each movie came out at approximately the same time I was going through the same life event. The original was released just before my senior year, and the last was released just before MY thirteenth reunion. And believe me when I say... My school totally had a 13 reuninion too!!! I don't know, short of being truly funny movies, they just hold a special place in my heart.

  4. Sorry... Lol my email--

  5. Happy Birthday! I love Elf, I know its a christmas movie but it just cracks me up! Lol wendynjason04 at gmail dot com

  6. Happy birthday!!!!

    My favorite silent comedy is My Best Girl with Mary Pickford(!)


  7. Happy birthday, wishing you a wonderful new year of life!

    Liar Liar was always the movie that cracked me up the most since childhood (I watched it a little young, heheh...)


  8. The Producers(original)no, Blazing Saddles no, Young Frankenstein; ah heck anything by Mel Brooks makes me laugh until I pee my pants (of course age does that too). Happy Birthday, today is my middle grandson's 11th birthday. I must endure the water park with him and 9 of his friends later today "shudder".

  9. Johnny English, Austin Powers, Hot Fuzz - British ones for me! And Happy Birthday to you!

    Hmm... and funnies movie.. I think that would have to be...
    oh damn... I can't really think of one. I'm not much of a comedy movie fan as my sister. I like... well.. not comedy. LOL... um, but the most recent one I watched was Parental Guidance. So I'll go with that! XD AHAH!

    Thanks for the contest and once again, Happy Birthday!!
