Happy Birthday, David!

October 13, 2011

My BFF Kirsty left London for NYC at the end of September; there’s us up there at the Chambord Rendezvous event the week before her departure (although it turns out Chambord isn’t so much fun when you’re pregnant). I miss her very much, we used to work together, play together, and would always end up laughing together. She does awesome things like upload a photograph of Prince William in her crotch and then tags me.

Anyway, it’s David‘s birthday today (the big 3-0) and as Kirsty couldn’t be in London to help him celebrate she decided to take to the streets of New York. Dressed as SpongeBob. Cos that’s what you do.

She says:
“Today David turns 30. He lives in London and I live all the way across the pond in NYC, so we won’t get to see each other on this milestone of a birthday. I wanted to shoot this film as a gift, and couldn’t think of a better present than me in a SpongeBob SquarePants outfit and a load of strangers giving their best wishes.”

This is one of the most wonderful videos I’ve ever seen.

It made me weep. I don’t know if it’s the hormones, I don’t know if it’s the SpongeBob: Kirsty, you are simply the best. And if you’re not in the UK when I give birth to baby Harold number two I will be expecting my own video.

      Aren’t they great?! I have 4 years to drop enough hints to get one of my very own for my 30th…
