I had a dream last night that you were six, and we were in your room, looking at your stuff, and I was going to get you some latest electronic Star Wars toy variation, big enough that the Millennium Falcon model could dock at it, and we were going to have to move your bookshelf out of your room to fit it in.
Of course I waited until the absolute last minute, until my only choices were a belated card through the mail or an online greeting card. What I found in online greeting cards convinced me not to go that route.
The Toaster Greeting Card site has some general cards, but no birthday ones.
Awesome Greeting Cards, on a page anti-marketed as "the oldest of our several birthday card collections" described (without graphics) a list of cards that started with:
Swingin', Swimmin' Day Features one fish wishing another a swingin', swimmin' good day. Add the words "Happy Birthday" as the Main Greeting for this versatile card. (Works equally well for birthdays, fishing season, anniversaries, Father's Day or as a friendship card. Also listed in Cards for an Awesome Dad and in All Occasion Cards.)
The card didn't live up to the expectations created by the description, although I'll admit that the thought of having one card for every occasion imaginable (Happy Fishing Season?) was attractive.
I found this entertaining photo at the Tacky Postcard site, which I thought I could use to tell you not to party too hearty, but seeing as how it's a Monday, it seemed unlikely to be relevant enough to be funny.
So I decided a blog entry would be best, just to tell you that I love you, and have always been proud of you, and am frequently impressed by the person you've become.
