Mappy Birthday

No, that's not a typo in the title, it was me trying to be funny because tomorrow is Map Guy's birthday!

He'll be 28... if you've been playing along at home, right now you'll be thinking "OMG! She's a cradle-snatchin' cougar!" and you'd be right. I am 14 months older.

For the next ten months our ages will appear one year apart, then I'll hit the big 3-0 and (just like every year) we go to being two years apart, as if by magic. Well, magic and dodgy maths.

Being the loving, adoring wife that I am, I wrote him a poem:

There once was a guy who liked maps
Who had a baby who wouldn't take naps
His wife was lazy
And a little bit crazy
And wished he'd wear assless chaps

What? I never said it was a good poem.

Hands up if you're now picturing Map Guy in assless chaps? I know I am. He does have a very nice bottom so I'm sure he could totally rock that look.

Happy Birthday Map Guy,

As a present I give you this video. It's the song that was #1 in Australia on the day you were born according to This day in Music. I'll tell my Mum, she'll love you even more.

Love always

Meet Glowless at the Aussie Bloggers Conference thanks to


  1. O my god, thank you for that video, brought me back to my youth. Thank god I was too young to ever wear that get up :)
    Happy Birthday Map Guy :)

  2. Happy birthday for tomorrow, Mr Gowless!

  3. Awwww Mappy Birthday for tomorrow, Assless Chap. How could you be disappointed with a poem and a song like that?

  4. Hear the cougar roar!

    Happy Birthday to Map Guy.

    I am feeling old as I can remember dancing to Gloria when she came on Countdown...

  5. Awesome. Love it. You are a literary genius and a poet. Nice work. #1 hubby is 5 1/2 yrs older than me - which helps, because he is always happy to go along with me being perpetually 25, since that makes him perpetually 30. Except his disappearing hair is giving us away.

  6. It's ok, my husband is 12 years older than me. :)

    You know what's really sad? I wasn't even born when this song was released and I love the top Laura Branigan is wearing in the film clip. I could totally rock that look. Honest.

  7. like most blokes I've ever met Map Guy is more an ass-less chap than assless chaps... I wonder what these people sit on... it must uncomfortable...

  8. Oooh, #1 song in Australia on day I was born: Blondie - Heart of Glass. On day you were born, Glowless, it was Olivia Newton-John: Physical. Tricky's birthday - Usher: OMG

  9. Mappy Birthday Map Guy!
    Love the poem but seriously hope you got him something a little better for a present (perhaps some chaps?)

  10. He's disappointed... he wanted a picture of a pony.

  11. There is a spot in Tricky's baby book for #1 song and I refuse to put it in!

  12. I did actually buy him some jeans, I might "alter" them tonight ;)

  13. As long as you don't try her dance moves too...

  14. Hahaha! OMG #1 Hubby? When Map Guy and I were planning our wedding we used to always say "Nah, let's not do xyz, might do that for my next wedding".

  15. Thanks to my mum I know all the words to both Gloria songs, this one and the G-L-O-R-I-A one. That and every John Farnham song.

  16. When asked what he would like to say to your message, Map Guy said: "I dunno, thanks for the birthday wishes? Tell her Mario Kart is great." That's my husband, very random :S
