Eu, Gene.

Happy Birthday, Gene!

I met you at a dinner after you came back from Germany - back when you were a blonde.
I got drunk and made an ass of myself. You were mildly amused. I haven't changed, and we're still friends. I have to respect that.

It's too bad we can't hang out anymore, though. I wish we could. It's just ... you're so damn old.

Ich wünsche Sie gut im nächsten Jahr und in Ihrem Leben. Ich habe so viel Spass gehabt seitdem ich Sie traf, und ich für Ihre Freundschaft dankbar bin. Ich wünsche Glück, Liebe, gute Gesundheit, und gute Zeiten für Sie. Hier ist zu Ihnen, einem guten Mann und einem guten Freund! Glücklicher Geburtstag.

Have a great birthday, Mr. Wood. Try not to break a hip.

*blush* I'm touched, especially by the german part. You're a great friend Kati and, having met you, I'm luckier than you know.

The german is (roughly) :

I wish you well in the next year and in your life. I have had so much fun since I you met, and I am grateful for your friendship. I wish luck, love, good health, and good times to you. Here is to you, a good man and a good friend! Lucky birthday.

I'd like to point out that "Eu" is commonly used as a salutation for addressing a man who is a eunuch.

That damage having been done, I'd also like to say happy birthday, Gene! And don't worry, I don't believe a word of it.
