An Important Occasion

Today marks Mrs Bleak's birthday. I would like everyone among you who has any human feeling to stop whatever you are doing at, say, 11 A.M. today, drink an entire bottle of vintage scotch, get chummy with a perfect stranger, and spends three or four hours celebrating this happy occasion. I'd like to hear the entire nation singing "Happy Birthday" to her at exactly 2:30 p.m. (so synchronize your watches, and allow for variations among time zones.) Do spread the word. Much depends on it.
