Friday Fragments-HAPPY DAAA AY TO MEEE!

Half-Past Kissin' Time
It is time for Friday Fragments from Half Past Kissing Time

Happy Birthday Katie - on the Google page!
I woke up today and didn't remember right away..... that it was my birthday, until Google and Mr BC told me.  Mr BC sang out Happy DAAA AY to you. That is our Birthday song since DD2 sang Happy DAAA AY to MEEE! when she was 4 years old. He admitted later that he had just seen a reminder on Facebook  It is a disconcerting fact that the interwebs know too much about you.  We hope to go out to dinner for my birthday, tomorrow with DD2!
But this is so true too!
I don't have corgoon.  Just one sweet Gwennie.

"Corgi" is a Welsh word - a compound of cor (dwarf) and ci (dog).  The proper plural form is thus "Corgwn" -
- which  would be pronounced something like "corgoon."

"I list this as "trivia" because the word has been so Anglicized that "corgis" is in common usage, and your use of "corgwn" in a conversation will be seen as pompous intellectualism, unless perhaps you engage your audience by also sharing some of the other English words derived from Welsh (penguin?)" TYWKIWDBI.

I learned about corgwn from TYWKIWDBI  a blogger I follow for his quite interesting and varied posts. He got it from a QI podcast another QI site I will explore.

This is not a commercial for English Muffins....but, I am so sorry I did not buy two of these as they are to die for and when I go back to get some more, they will not be available.  It really tastes like apple pie. 

Hippo has things to do.  Just like me, so have a great weekend.


  1. My goodness, can't wait to share the Corgi info with my daughter and SIL who own two and have a litter of puppies every year with them. I know they do not know this. :o))

    Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  2. Happy Birthday! What a cute corgi. We have several chihuauas. Not sure I spelled it right. When I have time, I'll hop back and check out your fiction. Have a great weekend!

  3. Looks like a lion on your back is worst than a monkey.
    Happy Birthday. I didn't know about those english muffins those would be worth a try.

  4. Ha-I get it, but of course that's because I'm a woman : ) Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy Day to You! I am not sure about who is DD2, but it doesn't matter. I suppose you know. Enjoy your weekend.

  6. Happy, Happy Birthday! OMGoodness I have not seen those muffins yet but they sound awesome.
    I sure hope the hippo got away.

  7. Love the hippo gif!

    Happy Birthday... I presume I'm a day late but the wishes are strong enough to last a week. Have a great weekend.

  8. Oh, dear...that poor hippo!
    Happy Birthday!!!
    Thanks for linking up.Have a great weekend!

  9. Happy birthday! It is weird, however that FB and Google know our birthdays.
    I will look for those english muffins.

  10. Happy Belated Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful time.
    That poor hippo needs longer legs.
