SPECIAL POST: Car party in the limo for Chauffeur M

Today is a special day in the limo! Chauffeur Deb, pass around the mimosas and screwdrivers while I make a toast. πŸ™‚

*clears throat* Chauffeur M was born today, 94 years ago, but she doesn’t look a day over 26. We couldn’t let this day go by without a little limo party. Deb and I have had the pleasure of blogging for over a year on Water for Elephants. We work well together and knew we’d like to keep having fun, blogging about Rob’s films. When we decided to tackle Cosmopolis, we were aware we fell short in the graphic design department. Enter M.

She’s got skills that have impressed me prior to getting her fitted for a chauffeur hat. It was our luck she was able and willing to join the sideshow of Deb and myself. Take a look around. She’s the HCIC of the limo polish, buff, and shine. So many papersthoughtful interpretations…and clever designs everyone can enjoy. We adore her.

Happy Birthday, M!!!

Mr. Packer said it’s ok if you spill in the limo just as long as you leave a little to spill on him later. πŸ˜‰

Special thanks: You noticed the part where I said we are lacking in the graphic design department? It’s like I have dreams of diamonds and can only make shapes out of tinfoil. Jules, thank you for making a birthday paper for M. We love your art very much and it meant the world to me that your gallery was open for business when I pulled up in the limo. πŸ˜‰ M, we had to outsource so this was a surprise. I suspect that’s ok since Jules rocks our socks. Here’s a more neutral Cosmopolis wallpaper by Jules in case our limo passengers don’t share the name “Marina”.

    Whoo hoo happy b-day Marina!! *raising a toast* (psst, I’ll be having a screwdriver, seems I had a lil’ bit of vodka left over after I met up with Eric at the hotel this morning, after I kicked Kendra to the curb, but you don’t wanna hear about that on your special day!).

    Srsly, have a wonderful b-day and thank you for all the beautiful designs you do. I am in awe of people with your type of talent & it gives the rest of us so much visual pleasure.

    Now, where’s that Grey Goose bottle……

  • Happy, happy birthday Chauffeur M, my lovely!! πŸ˜€ Hope you’re having an Eric-tastic day πŸ˜‰

    Seriously, I love love love your creativity – thanks for sharing with us all. *mwah*

    @Chauffeur Tink – thanks so much for asking me to help out. It was my pleasure – thanks for all your support ladies. Means a helluva lot. xoxo πŸ™‚

    • Marina H.

      Aw Jules, thanks so much!! I love YOUR creativity…so amazing to be in such a creative circle here with Rob fans πŸ™‚


    • A little back story so people know how awesome Jules is:
      I had the 20th in my mind for Marina’s bday and it snuck up on me. I needed a wallpaper and I needed it quick. Jules was the first person I asked and she turned one out for me immediately even though she was busy with real life stuff and it was last minute. I felt foolish when I later thought to double check my dates and saw we actually had a week before the big day. *head desk*

      So truly, thank YOU Jules πŸ™‚ xoxo

      • omg LOL! Thanks Tink – you’re way too sweet. It was my pleasure – your timing was perfect anyways. I had to shut up shop later that day. πŸ˜‰ Honestly, thanks for asking and I’m glad it seems to have put a smile on Marina’s face. πŸ™‚ xoxo

  • *clinks glasses* Happy birthday, Marina! Hope you can s-t-r-e-t-c-h your 24 hours out πŸ˜‰

    As Tink and Deb have already said, this limo ride wouldn’t be the same without you.
