Welcome To My Virtual Birthday Party!

Welcome to my virtual birthday party!

I’m 50! Wheeeee!

The sink is full of beer! C'mon everybody! Dive in!

Here come some Sullivans! The sink full of beer is over this way, folks!

I’d like you to meet my Mom and Dad and some lady who I’m sure is very neat, since she gave us these swell bibs!

Have you met my Uncle Jim and my Uncle David?

Here’s my niece, Caitlyn, and my bandmate from World's End, Sean!

Hi, Grandma! Yes, the sink full of beer is over that way!

Here’s MY WIFE’s family!

I’d like to thank you all for coming. The sink full of beer is empty, but the bar is NOW OPEN, so belly up!


Nice party, Jim! Why is there a basketball on my table?

OK, this guy has had enough. It’s time to eat anyway. Where’s the grub?

Burgers will be ready any minute now!

THAT was quick! Yum!

This party is b-o-r-i-n-g! It would be better if there was cake. Where’s the cake?
I think I might go to Stu's Party if I don't get some cake...

Mmmmmm! Cake!

Mmmmmm! More Cake!

All right, I’ll sign ONE autograph, but I’m eating cake here!

Presents? For Me? Aw, you shouldn’t have!

Wow! Just what I’ve always wanted!

I’m giving you this painting of Satan wearing a fedora!

I’m giving you a snowman!

Hi, Uncle Jimmy! I’m giving you a magnifying glance!

I’m giving you the bird!

I have no idea what it is, but I sure do appreciate it! Thanks!

Oh, boy! I got a rocking horse!

And a bass guitar! And sunglasses! And hair! Did anybody get me a shirt? No? Oh, well. Rock and roll!

You’ll get my present AFTER the party, big boy!

OK! Party's over! Thanks for coming everyone! Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

"Great party, Jim!"
"Thanks for coming, McFeeley! Give my best to Fred!"
"OK, Jim, I will. Oops! I see YOUR WIFE is waiting for you! Speedy Delivery to you!"

Boy, what a great party, Blackie! We’d better get some sleep! We’re not as young as we used to be, you know! I bet you I sleep until AT LEAST next Tuesday! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

First, Happy Birthday!

Second, do you ever watch King Of The Hill? I am picturing Bill Dauterive yelling "Rock&Roll," right before commencing an epic hurl into a nearby trashcan.

Third, that picture of you with the bass is wicked awesome, very badass. It's so badass, you should convert it to a t-shirt.

D, let me know how the book reads.

Fifth, and you knew this was coming, "They say it's your birthday!... Well it's my birthday too, yeah!!"

Happy Birthday, Your Suldogness!

[Enthusiastic Happy 50th Birthday Dance, which concludes with a pirouette and then a belly flop into the beer sink.]

And I have to say, that Satan? He looks sharp in that fedora.

I hope you have a fabulous day!

Sassy said...

Yayyyyy!!! Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy BIIIIRTTTHHHDAAYYY Dear JIIIMMMMMM...Happy Birthday to youuuuu!

(...and many more...)

Chuck said...

Happy Birthday, Jim! Does drinking beer out of a sink encourage one to dress in drag? Anyhow, have a great birthday.

Sharfa said...

Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer - and another one!

Cheers to you and Happy 50th!

James Cooper said...

Hahaha, awesome. Happy birthday dude!

I'd sing the happy birthday song but it's copyrighted and besides, I can only do off-key anyway.

Whaledancer said...

Ok..Blogger is $%^&*ing with me today and I had a witty, riveting birthday comment but its gone.
Happiest of happy birthdays, Mr J Sullivan and many many more!!

Rebecca said...

WOW! I'm so glad I came to your party today! Not only did I have a wonderful time with your grandma, I'd always wanted to meet Mr. McFeely! Who knew!?!? :)

The cake and drinks were to die for.

Hope you have a wonderful birthday and you don't look a day over 29 (again)!


Anali said...

Happy Birthday!! What a cool post! Thanks for the invite! Hey!! I didn't get any cake!! : )

The Omnipotent Q said...

A Very Happy 50th Suldog!! I had a blast at your virtual birthday party. Very funny and well done, my friend. I loved the cake and the sinkful of beer. You sure know how to throw an online birthday!!

Have a great day my friend.

Thimbelle said...

Best. Virtual. Party. Ever!

I always knew you would be a charming and witty host...

Happy Birthday, old thing. We're going to have a slice of Collins Street in your honor tonight! :)

Thim & Twinks & even the never-before seen Wrench :)

Magazine Man said...

Many happy returns of the day! Here's hoping 50 is twice as good as turning 25!

Best, mm

Mr. McFeeley looked like he felt a little, I don't know, flat today. Don't you think? Maybe he was at the beer-sink a little too long, I don't know. Anyway, a happy birthday to you!

[Today's secret word: spydthud]

Cousin Sully said...

The party was great, but I am going to have one massive hangover tomorrow. We had a sinkful of beer at my birthday party last night(being a Sullivan family tradition and all). Two sinkfuls of beer in two days and I am going on the wagon for a while!! (At least until opening day)

Enjoy your cupcake! (he, he)

Suldog said...

I think aspersions are being cast upon Mr. McFeeley (or me, or something) so let me set the record straight. It may be a crummy picture, so perhaps it's the lighting, but that REALLY IS Mr. McFeeley (David Newell). I wouldn't foist a phony McFeely on you on my birthday. Maybe every other day, but not today.

Suldog said...


Uh-oh! Is this like Pee-Wee's playhouse? Since I said the secret word is everybody going to start screaming now?

Crystal said...

Rockin' party, Sul! I don't remember much, but my headache says I had a great time.

I can't find my pants.

Happy Birthday!

Urbie said...

Happy birfday from one for whom 50 is starting to commence to begin fixin' to loom in the not-too-distant future of 6 years and change. But hey, that means you're eligible for the senior tour! -- Urb

Stu said...

It occurs to me, with great sadness, that while it is my birthday as well, I only got three comments, and two were double-posts, from my dad, who can't type. Deep, deep sadness.

Kaylee said...

happy birthday:)

Stu said...

Go back to my blog and check out my latest post (hint: you look good in shades, better even. )

DJ Big Mick said...

Happy Birthday you Old Dog!

Barbara from Nova Scotia said...

Might have to make it a tub full of beer for the next one. Thanks for the party. Happy Birthday and many happy returns!ufwabbb

Christine E. said...

Hi Suldog:

Happy Birthday! I saw your invite over at Kaylee's and since I am Irish, have Red Hair, amd a Red Sox fan, and have never had beer from a sink, I figured this was the place to be..:-)

GREAT post--what imagination!

Hope you enjoyed your day!

Go Sox!

Dezel said...

Very nice post! I followed Anali over to toast at your party. Happy Birthday pal and many more : )


Melinda said...

Wow Sully - I had a great time at your party!! Thanks for the invite - I really enjoyed the beer and cake - guess it's time to go sleep off the hangover.


ps. somebody tell Crystal i found her pants in the front yard (apparently mine were out there too *blush*)

Barbara said...

Great party Suldog! I hope you enjoy being fifty! Great post! I enjoyed seeing all the pictures of you.

Diane Kristine said...

Happy belated birthday! I stopped by Friday but had commenting issues.

CatPants said...

Happy Birthday!!! I'm a little late to the party, but I wish you the very best. I have an adorable cat making you some birthday sushi, JUST FOR YOU!!!!

Happy Birthday, Sweetie, and here's to a million more!

I arrived at your blog while searching for old sitcoms videos, and found out my Internet Twin! ;)
I was also 50 last march 2nd, and want to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday!
Enjoy your next 50 yars!
Good Luck!

Tim King said...

Hi, Jim. Happy Belated Birthday!
