Five Fabulous Things About Colleen

It was Colleen's birthday yesterday. I intended to make this post yesterday. But, I spent much of yesterday evening driving up to Pasadena and back to attend a friend's play reading. By the time I got home it was midnight and I was in no shape to blog.

Therefore, the Post in Celebration of the First Day of Colleen's Next Year. In Which Shall Be Listed Five Fabulous Things About Colleen. (Those of you who are related to me by blood or marriage, similar posts will come with your own birthdays. Look out!)

1. When Colleen loves you, she loves you completely, even when you totally screw up. She tells you about it when you totally screw up, but she does it because she loves you.

2. Colleen is a fiercely committed mother to her son. She loves him, has fun with him, and makes sure that he gets the best in every facet of his life.

3. Colleen has an open mind to music, books, media, and people. Rather than sinking into the comfortable beanbag chair of her past choices and dwelling there in perpetuity, she keeps drawing new ideas and friends into her life.

4. It goes without saying but it has to be said -- Colleen has a gorgeous singing voice.

5. Colleen keeps ties going with more people in a more extended way than most other people I know. She is generous with her time, energy and personal good humor, and that keeps people coming back for more.

Y'all should feel free to add your own Fabulous Things About Colleen in the comments!

She is so funny, she is forced to love herself... but she doesn't have to force anyone else, we think she's funny and loveable anyway :)

Yea, verily!

For those of you following along at home, this comment is a family riff on a quote from the movie version of "The King and I." The King praises his own performance as host of a banquet, saying, "I was so funny, I was forced to laugh myself!" Put that in Yul Brynner's accent, and "love" becomes more or less indistinguishable from "laugh."

Now you're beginning to see what La Jersild was talking about...
