Happy birthday to me...

I got an utterly dorky birthday card from a certain best friend (and I'm only just now getting around to sharing a week later).
The front: Birthday Wishes from Gandalf!

The inside: You actually got kind of excited, didn't you?!
(God, what a geek.)

[hand-scrawled: Happy Birthday [[Darkside Malfoy]] ]

The back: "Get a life!" [speech bubble from Gandalf]
I would not trade my best friend for anything in the world. Except Gandalf's portrayed as kind of ... purple. I'll have to bring that up the next time we talk, and tell him that something about the card Just Isn't Right.

... I've got to find something for next April 1st to top the Spotted Dick of '04.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
