Happy Birthday to me

Yep, today I'm officially an old geezer. 35 years old. I have phoned the knacker's yard, and told them to prepare the glue-making machines. To celebrate, here's a photo of me at my sister's wedding, back when I was Ronnie Corbett:


I was about 10. I'd had a couple of drinks, without anyone looking, and was feeling a bit wobbly.

Report on the final day of Fantasporto coming soon, just waiting on a couple of photos to do it justice.

Happy birthday! MySpace told me last week, and I remembered, but then when I checked today it denied all knowledge. Good to know I'm not going mad -- have a good one!

Danny Stack said...

Ha, ha! Nice one. Happy Birthday, you old fool.

Sorry, Grandad, I'm going to have to stop commenting now. You're far too old to be seen with.

Happy birthday.

Haha. Happy Birthday! (I didn't know.) Btw, why has Severance been taken off your agents page.

Did some evil swine swipe you from the writing credits?

soulmining said...

Happy birthday!! Hope you've fully recovered from Fantasporto... just in time to celebrate with some more beers!

Happy Birthday Ronnie!

Amanda said...

I don't need to wish you happy birthday again, do I? Oh, ok: Happy Birthday!

And I just laughed my socks off (well, I'm not wearing socks, but you get the idea) at your fabulous picture. It's *almost* as good as... y'know. I don't need to remind you of the funniest picture in history, right? :D

(OH MY! I've bested Danny's word verification. All word verification is nothing compared to this one: dynob. Love it. Please write that into something, somewhere?)

Hey - happy birthday jimbo!

Piers said...

And you've got a couple more stacked up, I can't help but notice...

Happy Birthday. Or not, as the case is today.

Happy birthday from one old git to another. It's the big slippery slope to forty for you now, mate. I should know I'm one month away from thirty eight. Oh Dear God, please help us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dan said...

happy birthday - did you finish that pint in front of you?

James Moran said...

Cheers everyone! I have no idea what you're talking about, as my mind is now gone. Is it my birthday??

Hotzappa: No idea, must be some technical error. I'll have a word with the webmonkeys.

Amanda: That pic is too dangerous, and must never be mentioned in polite society. Don't make me unleash the dynob.

Dan: No idea. But I remember being taken outside for some fresh air by a concerned relative. Didn't throw up though, I'm hardcore, me.

Lauren said...

Lucy said...

You mean your mother DIDN'T actually give you alcohol to shut you up when you were a child?? Must just be mine that did... Can you call Childline in retrospect??

PS. Everyone knows that your dynob falls off when you reach 40. Be v scared Dominic.

Happy belated birthday.
V. brief mention of Severance in Heat yesterday. Alex Zane was being quizzed on his recent viewings, and his last DVD was Severance, which he said was great, and that he was a big Danny Dyer fan.

Jiangtou said...

happy b-day wishes! you have to do some explaining about where you disappeared to at the vampires ball...

you're glasses are like, so media..

Amanda said...

Yes, Mr Moran, you ARE glasses.

Jools said...

Not a lot of people know this, but James' childhood heroine was Deirdre from Coronation Street, and it was pitiful to hear his little piping voice saying "PLEASE mummy, buy me some of those lovely big glasses just like Deirdre's".
He didn't actually drink that beer. I took the photo, and as you can see from his expression, he was actually expressing disgust at two glasses of the devil's wee wee being put there to tempt him.

Lucy said...

That's it: Jools is YOU James!!

ADMIT IT!!!

Hey my word verification beats ALL your asses: KOKNTZ!!

Jools said...

He's not me, I'm a laydee! I even started my own blog to prove it, but I forgot my username and the blog people didn't send me an email to confirm, so I can't write in it. Any suggestions?

Lucy said...

Yes. Admit you're a figment of your brother's imagination. You'd feel so much more happy. Honest.

Either that, or tell us ALL James' most embarrassing childhood ailments and moments that only a big sister would know...

Jools not James said...

I've changed his nappies!

Wow, an adjective had a walk-on part in this movie?? That really would make no sense... ; )

Happy Birthday! You are not the James Moran I was looking for, mine was an ex housemate and played a zombie in Shaun of the Dead. So obviously google put two severed fingers and two severed fingers together and pointed at you. Still, given your blog and your history you seem to be a far superior James Moran.
